  • 1 Signing news for the Bulldogs

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Niko Štúj: Hey Lurker seeing as the Bulldogs missing out on signing Jayden Brailey. Which other quality hookers are the Bulldogs looking to sign for next season?

    Broncos may have let go the wrong quietly spoken old man

    Broncos may have let go the wrong quietly spoken old man Such is the furore engulfing the once-indomitable Brisbane Broncos, former greats are being slave-driven to deliver a rate of Courier Mail rent-a-blasts not seen since Petero Civoniceva was replaced with Joel Clinton. This has seen record numbers of comparisons to ‘my day’ from regulars, including Michael Hancock, Glenn Lazarus and a litany of other greats who continue to front up, which is basically everyone except Andrew Gee.

    The Hound: Wayne Bennett to coach the Titans in 2020. You heard it here first. Warriors were one for sure. #4. Ask the NRL Lurker Extra. Callum Grigio: The Broncos have got themselves into a The Lurker : They can’t win really. Some say they should be spreading the game globally and others say

    The Lurker : Wests Tigers to medically retire Ben Matulino?

    And any other signing news?

    The Lurker: Hi Niko, Andrew McCullough has been spoken about as has Danny Levi. I keep hearing Josh Dugan's name pop up as well.

  • 2 Who will Parra get?

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Jake Diesing: Hey mate what’s Parra’s chances of actually signing Welch and where do they sit with the George Burgess situation? Also any truth to the Arrow to Parra rumours and if so will Parra sign all 3?

    The Lurker: Hi Jake, no they can't sign all three. Impossible to do salary cap wise. Burgess offer is markedly reduced from the offer earlier this year. Personally, I'd go Welch. Hard-working, strong carry and one of the best offloads in the game. Jai Arrow is an interesting one, if he's smart he gets out of the Gold Coast. I keep hearing Cronulla as a potential replacement for Gallen.

    Paul Vautin interested in Queensland State of Origin coaching job if Maroons lose series

    Paul Vautin interested in Queensland State of Origin coaching job if Maroons lose series He famously coached the Maroons to a State of Origin series victory in the 1990s, and now Paul Vautin is considering putting his hand up again if Kevin Walters makes way in the role.

    Why Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire gave his blessing for Josh Reynolds to look elsewhere. Canterbury coach Dean Pay shoots down Josh Reynolds’ dream of Belmore return.

    Ask The Lurker : How will the Seibold - Bennett saga affect Dane Gagai? Will Dane Gagai head to Wests The Lurker : That one has been doing the rounds but not sure how accurate it is. We will know a bit Jacob Peck: With NRL players looking to go to the NFL, do you think NRL clubs should start

  • 3 Papenhuyzen to the Broncos?

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Daniel Hillhouse: I have heard Ryan Papenhuyzen to Broncos to play fullback? Any chance?

    The Lurker: Still a bit of water to flow there Daniel, namely whether Darius plays on. RP becomes a live chance if Darius doesn't continue on with the two years that reman on his deal.
  • 4 Are the Knights thin?

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Matty Moller: Any news of the Knights looking to recruit some outside backs....it’s looking quite thin for next year.

    The Lurker: Hi Matty, not sure why you view it as thin. Ponga, Lee, Ramien, SKD and Hunt would all be starting players in the majority of NRL sides. SKD will be offered reduced offer to stay while Hunt is in a similar boat.
  • 5 Drama continues at the Sharks

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Nathan Goodchild: Shaun Johnson to be replaced by Flanagan? If so, any chance the Broncos could nab him?

    Gus' warning over Maroons Origin timebomb

    Gus' warning over Maroons Origin timebomb Phil Gould has given a sobering prediction for how Queensland rookie Corey Norman's Origin debut will go.

    The Lurker : Wayne Bennett and Anthony Seibold keen on 2019 coaching swap.

    Ask the NRL Lurker . @nicklocke87: Any news on Broncos targets for coach and players? Ask the NRL Lurker . Jeffrey Lin: Is Ivan Cleary going to leave us to go to Panthers? Ask the NRL Lurker . Corey Robinson: Do you think the Sharks should make a play for Norman to replace Townsend who’s

    The Lurker: No - Johnson will be retained this weekend against Melbourne. Flanagan came up with some extremely rookie and crucial errors at the back end of the game that were match-defining. As for long-term, I'm not sure how many times I can say it here - Flanagan will be at the Chooks in 2020.

  • 6 Jordan Rapana heading to NZ

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Rach N Dan: Are Warriors still in hot seat to sign Rapana for next year ?

    The Lurker: Yes Rach N Dan, they are. The Raiders are content to lose him.

  • 7 Who will replace Rapana?

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Jordy Bates: If Rapana leaves will we chase Nene Macdonald as a replacement ? #asklurk

    The Lurker: No Jordy, Nene needs many things right now, and one of them isn't football. Cotric, Simonsson, Kris, Niko are all the future for the Green Machine.

  • 8 Bunnies still in the mix

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Willy Schwartz: Are Souths done chasing anymore players for now after signing Roberts and Sua?

    The Lurker: They've just signed Bryson Goodwin for 2020, Willy. They still have 12 players from their top 30 still to re-sign, so I expect them to make a few more plays yet - particularly in the forwards.

    'It feels a bit surreal': Pearce is finally on the right side of Origin history

    'It feels a bit surreal': Pearce is finally on the right side of Origin history This 80 minutes was meant to inform us about Mitchell Pearce in a way that 268 NRL appearances and 18 previous State of Origin matches never could. That somehow all that he has and will achieve will be seen through the prism of this one performance and somehow put it all into its proper perspective. Of course, it doesn’t work like that. The result, aside from determining where the shield went, would also determine what we made of Pearce. You can’t get a 20th call-up unless the ledger is at least partly redressed. The Newcastle captain’s record still makes his state wince but at least it registers a series win.

    Sean O’Loughlin hopes Wayne Bennett stays on as England coach and that rugby league makes the national side its priority – while insisting he will And national skipper O’Loughlin would be delighted if Bennett says yes and would put his hand up to play for a team that should be developed as the

    South Sydney coach Wayne Bennett is asked about his interest in coaching Queensland for a fourth time; and whether he'd be able to coach at club and Origin level at the same time.

  • 9 Flanagan is leaving

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited @AdamSte30339848: With Johnson being shit, any chance Sharks keep Flanagan?

    The Lurker: Kyle and his management have made the decision to ask for a release from the final year of his contract (2020) at the Sharks. He will be at the Roosters in 2020, 2021 and 2022. The decision is a weird one given it was his father Shane that led the push to recruit Shaun Johnson. I think it's arrogantly impatient from the 20-year-old. What's even weirder is that young Flanagan will join a log-jam of halves at the Chooks including Luke Keary, Lachlan Lam, Brock Lam, rising star Sam Walker and don't forget Latrell Mitchell has declared he wants to play 6 in 2020.

  • 10 Stop trying to make the Walkers happen

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited @Psycorpion: All these coaches are the same!!... the Walker brothers will make change for the better!!

    The Lurker: If all these coaches are the same, why is Craig Bellamy about to record his 300th win? The Walker brothers tactics are simply not sustainable in the NRL.

  • 11 Where to for Walker

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited John Mags Magnusson: With Manly doing everything to sign the Tro brothers where will Dylan Walker land? He can’t possibly fit under the cap now

    The Lurker: He can if he accepts a cut-price deal that he's been offered.

    State of Origin: QRL board member Ben Ikin would let Kevin Walters leave to pursue NRL job

    State of Origin: QRL board member Ben Ikin would let Kevin Walters leave to pursue NRL job Walters on Wednesday night declared he will see out the remaining year of his QRL contract in 2020.

  • 12 Will Kevvie stay on?

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Cameron Maguire: Bennett, Fatty or Kevvie Qld coach moving forward?

    The Lurker: Simples…Bennett.

  • 13 Should Origin be moved?

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Ben Todd: Why do they continue having Origin on a work/school night anyone with half a brain would realise you'd sell more tickets and get higher tv ratings if it was on a Friday or Saturday night and I'd also be able to have a few beers and not have to worry about driving to work in the morning

    The Lurker: Hi Ben, I totally get this view. But this is a business at the end of the day.The broadcasters have cut the numbers and everything indicates Wednesday night is a greater return commercially with more viewers watching the game than when it has previously been played on a weekend.  Secondly, it's currently school holidays in NSW. And thirdly, do as I do, crack your first tinny early - and I mean like before 4pm- make an impact on the esky until kick-off, than put the brakes on while the game is on.

  • 14 A Jack de Belin update

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited George Gardiner: Hey Lurk, where's the DeBelin case atm? Is there an appeal and will it be this year ?

    The Lurker: Hi Georgie, you're going great on the Today Show. Big fan. As for Jack DeBelin, his hearing is set for August 22.

  • 15 Sharks on the move

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Glenn Acuna: Two Sharks players are on the verge of leaving the club according to Buzz Rothfield. Any truth that the players are Josh Dugan and Capewell?

    Maroons set sights on having Keary declared a Queenslander

    Maroons set sights on having Keary declared a Queenslander Senior Maroons have not surrendered hope Roosters five-eighth Luke Keary could be re-classified as a Queensland player.

    The Lurker: Hi Glenn, I can confirm that the two players, aside from Kyle Flanagan and Jayden Brailey, weighing up their futures are Scott Sorensen and Kurt Capewell. Sorenson knocked back a great offer in March and is now playing NSW Cup because Briton Nikora has gone ahead of him while Capewell has already knocked back a massive offer from the Warriors, but believes he can get more elsewhere than what the Sharks can currently afford.

  • 16 Super Isaako

    Ask the Lurker: Should Wayne Bennett coach the Maroons? © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited @WiseBirdius87: Hi mate. With Anthony Seibold suggesting Milford may be the Broncos fullback long-term, what does that mean for Isaako?

    The Lurker: Hi mate, Isaako is a winger. If he's squeezed from the Broncos, no less than six clubs would be willing to sign him. Super talent.
