I like this:

1. Teddy.

2. Nofo
3. Richards (we are buying him for something and there is no spot for him on the wing)

4. Simona (assuming he can consistently meet his defensive committments)
5. Koro
I also can't see Ayshford playing first grade on a regular basis in the centres going forward. I'd like to see something like this as well. It'll be interesting when we are at full strength.

Ayshford, Reddy, Lawrence & Taqele all might perform and jag a spot. I think Nofo and Koro are pretty much going to get spots and Simona may as well assuming he improves defensively.

How I see it in 2014.

2. Nofoaluma
3. Richards (Lawrence-Simona as back up options)
4. Ayshford
5. Koroibete

What this leads me to believe is that with the guys who are under contract....that being all of the above. There doesn't appear a need to re-sign Joel Reddy. Matt Utai will move on. Lote Tuqiri is in the same boat too. If those 3 are moved on, I do think our depth can potentially be tested. Naiyaravaro is untested. My thinking is one of either Reddy or Tuqiri will be offered a one year deal. Reddy is more deserving of it without question but I don't know that he'd accept - he probably deserves more. He's a victim of the younger brigade coming through. From that point of view Tuqiri would be easier to re-sign and cheaper.

Nofo has been fantastic.Cant wait to have a full fit Koro on the other wing and Simona at centre. Bit of strike powered there

Agree....Nofo has played way above what I expected him to so early on in his career in Firsts. Couldn't be more impressed with how he has performed so far.
The game-time that he is getting this season will really be of value next season when hopefully the injury gods are a bit more lenient towards us and we can field a full-strength side across the park. Keep up the brilliant work Nofo ;)

What a superstar his going to turn out to be in the future his already shown he belongs in first grade we had to make the move to let Beau Ryan leave last year becuase we had 2 gun wingers ready for the step up.
