    Sydney Roosters’ English import Joe Burgess has been given permission to play the remainder of the season with South Sydney before he returns home to Wigan.

    An easy game to call now :)

    Keary gone - to Roosters apparently.

    Reported by foxsports that Souths are looking to sign the Jennings brothers from penrith and rumoured that Sam Moa maybe also be a recruit for 2017.

    Farah all but signed.

    He might be a good fit - feeding ball to Burgii ... :)

    If its true its a YES YES YES and a lucky break for Dragons fans. Farah could be what the rudderless Bunnies need however. A bit like the sharks pre Ennis

    Yes, looking more like Farah to Souths and McInnes to the dragons, Mitch Rein to find a new home.

    Anyone can play hooker but what the Dragons need is a consistently good dummy half. Rein is hot and cold at dummy half and with his hair in his eyes does more than his share of forward passes.
    I don't know what issues Rein may have but if he cant sort them out and get a haircut at the Dragons perhaps another club may be his future.
    It was a toss up between Rein and King with the dragons going for Rein due to King getting a few injuries. Perhaps the club should have tried harder to keep King or Garvie

    I'm not sure but I read that Rein is currently on $600k per year, Dragons will get McInnes for $400k per year so it frees up some cap space for other signings, that may be what's behind the move.

    Souths reported to be signing Robbie Rochow for one year.

    Apparently coach Maguire had talks with Kevin Locke on the weekend.

    Isn't Locke just another trouble maker?

    Yep, Locke has some history.

    There may be another surprising development in the making regarding Souths signing another hooker, not sure but stay tuned.

    The Bunnies have had their name mentioned with almost as many players as the Dragons lately and the silly season hasn't even started

    Issac Luke and the warriors aren't getting on and it is rumoured that there is a possibility of him returning to Redfern, that's what is supposed to be holding up any Farah announcement. It's a hooker merry-go-round atm and we have to wait until it stops.

    Lotsa luck, he hasn't set the world on fire this year but he has a lot of potential and he is a very good defender, dragons might save up to $200k of salary cap that they can spend elsewhere.

    Yes - apparently Rein is on about $400k and wants more ... :)

    I think you will get Cam for $400k.
