Brisbane’s Jamayne Isaako, Newcastle’s Jesse Ramien and Melbourne’s Curtis Scott are three potential targets to bolster Canterbury’s backline, according to The Daily Telegraph.

However, all three of these players may prove difficult as Isaako is under contract until 2022 and Ramien is a Knight until the end of the season.

Scott may be more attainable as he seems to be out-of-favor with Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy and has been playing for the Sunshine Coast, Melbourne’s feeder team for the last two weeks.

Even with recent injuries to the NRL side, Bellamy has resisted promoting Scott to the main side. There are growing feelings that Scott would be available should Melbourne want to test the market on their 2017 championship player.

Storm co-skipper Jesse Bromwich said of the 21-year-old that “I know for a fact we want to have him around here. I know he’s doing all right. He took having a rest quite harshly but that’s just him, mate.

“He’s a competitor and he wants to be out there (in the NRL) competing,” he said.

Ramien also seems like a possibility as he has expressed concern with his little possession this season. But he would provide no immediate relief to the Bulldogs who are in dire need for his positional talents.


  1. Dogs don’t need a centre they have Harper need an attacking hooker & two solid hard running props that’s it

  2. Curtis Scott and Jesse Ramien are good targets. Scott is particular as he is out of favour and feels like he has something to prove. Ramien is really good and think if Newcastle start listening for offers on him a lot more clubs will come sniffing and he will get a big payday out of it.
    But think the Bulldogs need a young gun hooker more so, Jayden Brailey, Danny Levi, Recee Robson to name a few option to go for.

  3. Deadset all is quite on the Latrell Mitchell media front so they have conjured up this story now. Mitchell is signed for two seasons and will retire a Rooster legend.

    Now this beat up story is even funnier🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 with the Broncos just signing Jamayne Isaako last season to a 5yr contract. Who’s next Daley Cherry-Evens remaining 7 yr contract to be overlooked and for soufffffffffffffs with their 1.5 mil plus to buy him.

    The “TRANSIT LOUNGE” rabbit O’s have now built up their reputation and now will be linked to every non and available player that is and is not on the open market from now on. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 But Canterbury won’t be for quite a few years until their salary Cap issues are sorted.🐓💪🤣👍🐓
