Yeah me too mate. Roosters or Penrith will be my best guess to where he will be next season.
Neither of which will be bent over to take Tyrone if they don't want him either. Although Penrith seem to love him.

Like us with bomber they couldn’t resist chasing the shiny prospect coach instead.

Hopefully we were right, don’t really care if they were or not
But did Bomber have the pulling power of Fitz?
Players seem to want to work with him

We are in talks with Terrell May. St George are also along with Panthers & Roosters.
AFB and Terrell in front row with Hunt off the bench gives us serious size.
The fact we're talking to him thou says we're not retaining BHU

How far does pulling power last if you can't get results?

No I don't think Bomber did have the pulling power of Fitz although never had a fair chance as he inherited a salary cap restraint. He did sign McInnes without an issue as soon as he had access to money.

Not retaining, or making other offers to push him to make a decision...

Love how the dogs “pull out” of chasing players. They have clearly been told Terrell has no plans at all to go there but don’t want to look like losers like the Dragons

Barrett wasn't a shiny prospect & Fitz had a way better CV

Could be that they are deliberately trying to hike up the price for someone else to pay more for one player, Leaving them a clearer run at someone they really want.

Cos they seem to do this a lot

I think its more like its a better look to say you & girlfriend 'went your separate ways' rather than 'she's ****ing my cousin instead'.

Well look at the players Ciraldo recruited with ease from triple premiers.
Hes made them stronger, so results arent far away

Should he come to club, we need to get him on a good contract which has stipulations to clear up his name within the game. Plus maybe get drew to mentor him also. find up how he cleaned himself how he sorted him self out, maybe those answers would help May along the way

I was pretty shitty about the way it all went down with Morris. But the note I hear about Fitz's history with the club the better I feel. Hey would have been ridiculous
Should get Morris in. Would be a good lesson for putting your hand up and having a go when no one else would.

So like I said, both went the shiny prospect, and seems to have had similar outcomes so far.

He’s made them stronger but he’s done some dumb things like play Burton at 7 so I wouldn’t say there’s guaranteed massive improvement to come. He definitely might be a good coach but I don’t think we’ve seen it so far

I would say having 3 genuine first grade quality middle forwards in your whole squad isn't a smart move, I definitely wouldn't say improvement is guaranteed neither. Like the Sharks have learnt lately it doesn't matter how good your backs are if you don't win the middle they can't do anything
