    Folks live in Hervey Bay now. Much more civilised weather to what I grew up in at Townsville. Awesome winters but I don’t think I could handle the Summer humidity anymore. Perth is generally hotter, but much much drier and the rains are in Winter.

    Everyone's folks move to Hervey Bay eventually. Precisely because of the weather. It is Australia's version of Florida.
    In fact, the median age in Hervey Bay is 45, whereas the rest of Australia is 37.
    I was down there just recently (visiting my partner's folks), such a great and relaxed place. Can't wait to retire there myself one day- you do get used to the humidity Very Happy

    Vaughan's minutes actually went up (excluding his last injury game) from 47.3 to 50.3 despite his decreased score last season. James Graham might have taken minutes off JDB as well - who was starting prop prior to Graham, I can't remember

    And when I say props taking minutes off a lock, I mean indirectly via bench rotation. That is, sharing the load around more like Trent Robinson. I don't know what I'm saying...

    There's still an eternity to season start, lots of bombshells yet to come probably. James Segeyaro is released and rumours BS9 is looking to get out of Storm. If these guys find a club it will be interesting although everyone would have them so maybe not that big of a deal.

    Signing James Graham to take some big minutes in the middle. Not as many to go around with JDB, Graham, Vaughan, Ah Mau, Friz and Sims all commanding big minutes

    My positions 18-21 are my cash cows & I like all backs there because usually a bench forward gets 20-30 minutes whereas as a rookie winger for example will play 80 mins so you make more cash this way.

    I like this. G’day bud.

    I sense sarcasm. Happy new years by the way mate. But you realize it was a comment in relation to who is unlucky with the halfback shuffles especially with Shaun Johnson's move? Of course you do, you're a smart guy!

    Murray = gold.

    Training at lock, but switching with Sam, then right edge.

    Another Whitehead though, won't get through the tackles as much but more attacking intent, but will be first to switch to CTR if there is a backline injury

    Could be good for Whitehead though, not having to play CTR
