Three More Spots.
To round out the Top 30.
Anyone think Idris might be signed?
I think Idris as a base contract player would be great. I'd have no pressure this time around as he wouldn't be relied on to be a star, he could just build his way up. The question is does he want to play on?

Think w we still need:
mobile impact forward/lock. Even if rochow signs, I still think we need one more impact utility forward. Corey Harawira Naira would have been perfect. Raymond Fataila Marina would be great. Closer to home, Tatola might be the one.

Fullback. Apart from Kev we have no depth for fullback options if Lolohea goes down or doesn't work out. As far as I know Heleta is still off contract next year?

utility/hooker- someone like Watson would have been great that can do a job in any spine position. Jeremy Marshall King might be our best option close to home.

Our two new props are impact forwards
Sue as well,
It will be interesting to see how Ivan plays them
No real impact backrowers , maybe Marsters off the bench.
I don't think we'll find a better SC fullback than Kev, unless we gamble on a young rookie as well.
Hooker /utility Benji or Jem Marshal . Or possibly Reynolds and someone else to 5/8.
Ivan "Billy Beane from Moneyball" Cleary!
It's the Ivan of the tiger, It's the thrill of the fight...

If Connelly Lemuela is still the tigers next year he could be the backup fullback.

Lolohea, Thompson, Marshall, Kev and Nofo - all play Full back.

How many Full backs do we need?

2 more positions left to fill the top 30... I reckon we still need a 1st grade winger and a backup fullback
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

a fast tall winger is needed. Our backline is too slow.

EXActly. For crucial spine positions you want specialist backups. The players mentioned above might be okay to fill a game or two but if Lolohea was to go down in round one, I wouldn't want to see any of those players mentioned at fullback long term.

Have Marshall or Thompson even ever played one game at fullback?

Redcliffe Dolphins had Benji at fullback for what it's worth, although the Broncos preferred option was Nikorima to fullback and Benji in the halves when they needed to replace Boyd.
