Although I like Burton, I do think he really needs to be partnered with the right half to get to the next level he is capable of.
Could be argued for most halves, but yeah. Him staying is probably pretty good for him and Flanno Jnr (assuming he keeps the gig)

I hope Croker takes up that player option just to throw shade at the rabid Raiders fans that have turned on him and a coach that no longer shows him much love

+ so we can see him cry one last time exiting a finals series (if they make one...)

seems like a good bloke though but plays for a merkin of a club and I always hated his winging and sooking

Croker is a ripper of a bloke

Flanno Jr, isn’t the right half for burton. I like his attitude, defensively awesome but he just lacks the skills of speed, a running game and a kicking game in the modern NRL. Club’s gonna have to develop within in which we suck at doing.

Imagine Hynes in the 7 with Burton in the 6…
I like them both a lot, but I do think we miss a half that can control the game. Nicho looks every chance of being able to be that guy and be great at everything else, but I think we're still a year or so away from that. So it'd be an entertaining mess... Just like this year!

Yeah at present, Burton with an ARey/DCE/Cleary type is probably the best combo.

I think between Nicho/Burton and Fitz we’d find a way. I reckon those two could cause so much mayhem for other teams defence. I’d even go out on a limb to say they would be the Meta… guess we will have to sign him to find out
