Pom are we chasing any significant names or just players for the ISP team?
Don’t expect anything till the season ends. Majority of targets are still contracted. Things will make sense once announced & if we can get these 2-3 good names over the line.

To quote Vossy: “this is ridiculous”
We have just let go Grant and Sue. No big name replacement props?
We have lost Milne, Simona, Naiqama and Suli but no established centre replacement?

Umm - just saw Pom’s final post. Scrap that

Drinkwater should stay in Super League which suits his skill set down to the ground and he can crave out a nice solid career there. If he came back here, he would just be a back up half back.

The club has signed some young talented half-backs by the sound it in young Talau from Bulldogs and young half from Newcastle who played Australian Schoolboys. I would not waste too much money on a back up half tbh.

Centers and Forwards would be the main area's however there is a real lack of off-contract centers unless they are moved on or ask for a release from their contract.

Silence! Club has bunkered down on this issue. No one allowed to say a word.

We really really really need some props. We've lost Grant, Sue and Felise and have not signed any replacements

Mikalele will replace Sue. Clarke is probably Felise’s replacement in ISP.
We need another good prop Taupau is my pick we need to add quality to this squad.
Peni Terepo is a machine would be a gray bench prop.
