I'd think the best thing for him long term would be to stay at the Eels and develop in a good side with a strong pack and a system he knows well, next to a guy who compliments him (assuming Moses stays... though he'd have Gutho I guess). A move at this stage of his career for a short term gain would be a pretty risky.
He's developing still (as he should be at his age) but one of his biggest strengths is his own run game. Works a lot better on the front foot thanks to a great pack. Something for him to think about before he takes up any offers. Paulo/RCG/Ipap/Lane/Matterson have been a great platform for him to play off

I wouldn’t say we are very strong in depth in the backrow. Teig and Briton. Wades on last legs then who else? That’s why he’s come here.

Niu will either sign with Newcastle or the dolphins. Won’t be at the broncos next year it seems. They’re freeing up cap space and from what’s being said they are going to try get one of Nanai or Fifita.

I'm more than happy to take Flegler or Carrigan off their hands if it helps them out.

Talakai. Durr.
Really? he is a first choice centre now and been re-signed as a centre who can also play back row. Durr.
We don’t have great depth in the backrow, which is why the tigers player sees an opportunity. You want 4 good backrowers in your squad. We’ve got 2.5 at the moment.

O'kane will end up with a top 30 spot.

id say we'll end up with a good buy for '24 in the back row once wades done. in fairness there wasnt alot on offer this year. i would have maybe had a go at murchie but fitz knows what he's up to

Don’t mind Murchie - but he’s more of known quantity. He’ll get a gig somewhere imo.

Who is this Durr fella?

Sounds like we might have a goodun if he is similar to Sifa!
