I have been saying this for years and years. Our pack has always been lacking in any sort of intimidation. Semanufagai and Sue have a bit of mongrel but we need more. We need at least one boofhead like JWH or a hard hitter like Nigel Plum who make the opposition think twice about running it up the guts.

Needs more depth ..... If Galloway or Woods get injured again we will be very light on.

Do you mean like our very own Nathan Brown except with a bit more control - just a wee bit mind you.

A capable defensive structure from a defensive coach that knows what hes doing would help.

We wouldnt be always on the back foot, we wouldnt be dominated in defense, we wouldnt have to resort to illegalities to slow the play down to keep up with the opposition

galloway has been very disappointing imo. i understand he just came from a very difficult injury but he is still just strolling on to the line and and when he tackles, it looks like a bear hug.

he will be the key to our forward pack next year.. he really needs to stand up and use his frame.

on a side note, our forward pack gets a real hammering (and deservedly so) but ironically since hodgo only our front row in galloway, farah and woods have ever made it to an SOO team

I think we definitely need a very aggressive and quality second rower, ala Ellis. Doubt there is anyone on the market worth signing though.
