Can never have too many props..think it was Jack Gibson who said when you think you have enough..go out and buy 2 more...

Attrition is high up front...both Packer and Mautilino hae spent time on the sidlines in recent seasons either of them go down we are back to rookies a plodder in Grant and a low minute man in Sue...say what you want about Woods but for a big man he was on the field more than off...
Jack said one more , no more embellishing please ........

Prop is our strongest position but it needs to be , they will need to carry us kicking and screaming to the Top 8 if we want to make it

Our biggest issue apart from our back row is not having a hooker that can play real big minutes

It's no coincidence in my opinion that many of the top sides have hookers who can play 80 and gives you more size and grunt on the bench

Smith
Friend
McCullough
Granville
Granville doesnt play 80min

He does late in the season and plays far bigger minutes when he plays down south , would be near impossible in Townsville
