We’ve got a very good forward pack next year especially if we can get Nikorima or hang on to Tuilagi
13. Joffa
12. Papali’i
11. Nikorima
10. Stef
9. Api/Simpkin
8. Twal

That’s easily a top 8 forward pack. The backline i’m less certain on but if Big Ken can pick it up and Laurie lifts maybe. I’d like to see a strike centre - I’m not convinced about Talau or any combination of him/Gildart/AD/Roberts right now. Whether Hastings and Brooks is an ongoing quality halves combo we’ll have to wait. I’m a fan of Hastings on what I’ve seen. Time will tell I guess.
Our bench lacks any real impact. Players 11-30 need to be upgraded significantly imo

I thought Tuilagi confirmed he was going? Would like to keep them both, but Luch is the one I'd be working on to backflip. His efforts in A and D are much improved. I'm particularly impressed that his form improved after signing a big deal, it's usually the opposite as we all know.

Pipe dream, I know.
Luc had a gap year last year. Hopefully that’s what version cows get

After watching yesterday's game was wondering how much money Hastings is on, he will need an upgrade at some stage before other clubs come sniffing around.

Definitely. We need to get our spine sorted and Hastings should be first picked.

He probably is but the story was doing the rounds that we’re trying to get him to back out of the Manly deal.

Signing nikorima would be a very tigers move tbh lol


Wot about taipari

Does club rate him?

He ks quick off a step
Bro, have u seen him play?

He's high energy but he's no good.
He's a #14

Our cup team last year was solid but sadly this year is woeful.

I'd like to see Camroux moving up into cup soon, he's the real star.

Edited for Demps!

If we can hang on to Tuilagi? He's signed and delivered to Manly is he not?
