    Parata being back in QLD is very, very interesting.

    Many good judges were very sad to see him go.

    Also, speaking of TSS prodigies - how is Dion Samuela going?

    Are you talking about Tyler Campbell or Campbell Parata?

    Given quality of Lolesio, Kuenzle and Pasitoa it make sense for Reds to go for one of these. Lolesio and Kuenzle already proved they are super rugby ready and given hype on Pasitoa imagine he would not be far away

    Deegan should be starting at 10 and To’omua at 12 imo

    Give me Pasitoa any day tbh.

    I know he is unproven but that suits us from a development point of view.

    He hasn’t missed on any step up in level yet .

    The skill set is there already and mentally very strong .

    I’d love to see him in Red/ maroon!

    Thought it was James Slipper he had in mind.

    That's your opinion, I'm just saying if a club had given me a contract for 2 years whilst I finished school and developed physically, then I would feel personally indebted. Professionalism or not.

    I'm hearing some stories..typical Picone work here. Shame the Rebels have got involved in it.

    Is there proper accreditation for player agents here? If so you have to wonder if Piccone has breached the terms of it at some point. Particularly with respect to Hockings. He was off contract at the end of the season and by that time was likely to be a capped wallaby by that time, at which point he would have had much better options and offer's available to him here and abroad. I can't see how leaving at the same time as the wallaby starter directly in front of him for club and country was in any way a positive career move for him. I can see how it helped give Rhodda more bargaining power though.

    For those uneducated and without an ear to the ground. Are you able to share even if it's generalities? Would be great if the wider public knew how Picone conducted himself.

    If Carter is back playing for Wests , he’s no longer at the Reds .

    Carter Gordon has moved on and so should we. This kid’s skill has captivated me for years and if we can’t have him at the Reds we can back him in Australia. Interesting that Parata is here right now. He would be a serious consideration at a quality flyhalf. Two years under with the Crusaders comes with merit.

    I have zero respect for players who leave QLD because they are impatient.

    McMahon’s etc are different because they weren’t given a shot.

    Carter can get in the bin, bring Pasitoa back.

    Picone should lose his license, for whatever reason he is actively trying to do harm to the Reds organisation.

    Can’t remember anything like it.

    So if you had a job while finishing school and the first couple of years out, say at Macca's, you wouldn't have taken another job that pays better and you feel will give you a better opportunity? These guys are professional and have the option to go where they want.

    While we can get upset at Picone he works for his client. They make the final call, hopefully in consultation with their family.
