Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

I think the only case we could sign him now is homesickness but I feel like he'd dominate over here on every high ball. I would love to see us develop another Budgie type player - his NRL stint ruined one of the best winger prospects we have had.
Agreed.

Was bordering on world class at some points with us before his move.

Had the world at his feet, made a bad decision and hasn’t looked the same since. Had some good games for us on his return but he wasn’t the same player, started to make a lot of errors, lost a bit of speed, a few injuries.
That's why I would love us to have some big centres to partner our rapid wingers.

Let Harry & Cade just kick a few high ones up there to create havoc. Halsall did that brilliantly tonight/last night against Hull KR -- he just went up fearlessly & was the first on the ball both times that I remember.

Wardle & Halsall would be very solid "winger's centres" in 2023.

Budgie is still rapid but prone to injuries.
