Scotty Prince: A good move?

Oh no not this debate again. It was bad enough last week :lol:

Is Morkel still in a testy mood :lol:

Don't care whether they pursued him or not, they signed him.
Prince, Wallace, Norman & McCulloch. What a shambles, fancy trying to build a footie team around those clowns. And Hook ain't up to it.

:lol: I generally don't bother tbh. Was just after clarification, which I've gotten. I don't agree, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. I thought League Guru might have gotten the inside word because he and Hook are mates or something

Correct Harry

Prince will prove all the haters wrong he is a competitor. Played well the other night looked solid a few missed tackles but he attack was solid. Will steer the broncos around well and his game play is suited to the broncos structure quite well. Buy of the year for mine.

I just hope he's taking calcium supplements, or are those illegal? I swear he breaks a bone every year.

feed him your milkshakes then to make sure he is getting enough calcium :)

Spot on Aspley Owl. I think you'll also see Wally lift a peg or two from having Princey there running the ship. I have never been a fan of Wallace's but he'll excel by having the pressure taken off him after having all the pressure bestowed on him to be the number one playmaker last year after Locky's departure.

Why ......Wallace had Lockyer shouldering all the responsibility before and he was still a numpty with the ball in his hands.

Lockyer retires and he's a numpty now because he has too much responsibility.....?

How 'bout just facing the fact the Peter Wallace is shit.......fullstop

Prince and Norman will make good halves for this year.......some reports from tonights trial indicate that this was the more successful pairing, in an otherwise dour night for Brisbane.

It seems as though Prince is already adding some much needed creativity to the Broncs attack.

At least Wallace can defend, a Prince/Norman combo would be a worry in that regard.

Will concede that .......though we've gotten round that problem before.

What's better a halfback with flair and vision who can read a game, or one that can defend well?

How much creativity will there be in a team with its two halves getting steam rolled each game, there has to be balance and imo Prince and Norman together is a liability in the front line. Normans defense may improve but Prince has shown as recently as the All Stars game that his defense is pretty average.

Have always liked Prince but his defence is ordinary at times but I still think he is a better option than Wallace. For the try Prince may let in, he will set 2 up. But in saying that, Prince is not getting any younger and he is past his best.

Wallace is a hack and I still wonder why they resigned him.

Pains me to say, but I agree. What I do wonder is whether Prince has decided on an easy life till he retires. Would be a shame as he is a better deal that Wallace. 
MrFourex

MrFourex

True enough that Prince is a bit of a turnstile.....Norman is just inexperienced. I don't think his defense is as bad as it's being made out to be.

If your only requirement is to have a half or fiveighth than can tackle, you might as well throw in an extra forward. David Stagg has got as much flair in attack as Peter Wallace has.....throw the number 6 or 7 on him.

Thaiday for #6 again.

I am certainly no "insider" like some here seem to be, but I think I am right in assuming that the Broncos brains trust would be attempting to assemble a team to win the NRL premiership.
I like Wallace but I don't believe we can win a title with him as in either 6 or 7.
And I don't believe that they bought Prince with the thought in mind that he can steer the team to a title.
So who?
I personally think Gee is playing footsies with the media and Thurston is squarley in their sights. As a #7.
Nothing else seems to make any sense.

Les hates Prince if I remember correctly.

More to do with the fact that he had to agree with Lewis IMO.

Because I don't agree with a lot of what you post.

Not as a player, but as what I perceive him to be as a person.
