Do we play Sirro at 6 or 13?
What about Fulton/Anasta and other…hope we finish this year on high with little to no more injuries

Sironen - Backrow
Thompson / BMM
The experience of Anasta to guide brooks around and Sironen to bulk up (of which it has been made clear he has 10kg of potential too) and play 2nd row off the Bench.
Maybe Koroibete and Nofo the other way around
Thats a very green backline. Potential is there though if people are prepared to let them find their way. They will cop some hidings before that happens though. When that time comes I wonder if patience and understanding will be displayed?
I dont see a problem at all with the youthful team we are putting together, I am actually quite excited about it… We needed the re-structure for a while now, and its good to see that we are not doing anything by halves. It was always going to be a rough ride this transitional period, and even though the Clubs hand has been forced to an extent recently, we will reap the dividends long term.
That said, Potter has a monumental task ahead of him. Success will be very dependant on the strength and quality of our coaching staff top to bottom, and serious moves need to be taken to bolster our ranks in this department. Potter may well have a vision, a footballing philosophy that needs to be drilled into the squad, but without specialist assistance, a Joey Johns to guide young Brooks, or a defensive coach with some nouse, the rough patch may well extend for longer than it has to.
