Get the youngest Brailey in, apparently he is the biggest and he is playing hooker now but they think he may end up being a 13.
15yo hooker in the NRL. That’s thinking outside the box bort. They’ll never see it coming.

Norman linked to the knights.

Tyrone May set to be sacked

Elliots signs with raiders

Tigers chasing korisou(Hodgson likely to stay at Canberra due to starling getting himself into ****)

Knights also looking at drinkwater

Why any club would sign him is beyond me.

So looking at Clifford and Ponga halves supposedly if Pearce goes. Clune as backup.
I'd leave Ponga at FB personally which gives you Clifford and Clune, a bit uninspiring, can see why a cheap vet would be of interest at least.
He's getting no offers and going cheap for a reason though.
You couldn't go into a season with 6 Clifford 7 Clune 9 Brailey 14 Mann and no other halves or hookers on your books though, have to sign someone.

Bailey Hodgson would have to be looking real sharp in preseason that I'd move Ponga.

All this talk about Pearce and Norman for mine lets me think the Knights will be weaker next year and that helps our chances of finals imo.

Titans preparing a massive offer for B smith for 2023. Likely to be over 4 years and north of 800k a season.

How about Clifford and Mann in the halves, Ponga at fullback. Norman for depth/competition? Think I'd find a spot in the team for Mann ahead of Norman or Clune

As a player I like Mann more than Clune but as a starting half I think I prefer Clune and Mann in that 14/first fill in role.
Haven't watched all of the above close enough that I am 100% sure that is the right combo of players though.
Norman could compete for a handful of spots in their team.

TBH there is no real combo of Clifford, Clune, Mann, Norman that instills me with much fear.
Luckily for them players like Ponga can still beat us single handedly though.
