I’ve never been a fan of Tolman at all but I was pretty surprised to see he averaged 140m per game and over 40 tackles. Statistically he would have been our best forward.

He’s always been good for stats problem is whenever he touches the ball the teams entire momentum goes, he slowly goes to the line and takes the tackle rarely offloading. Plays a lot like Gallen In his final few seasons lots of fourth tackle hit ups killing the play lol

I’m not suggesting we sign him but we do need some forwards that make metres and have good defence. Our pack has been monstered 10 weeks straight and whilst Tamou will make some improvements, we need more than 1 player (and the jury is out on Stefano due to limited minutes). Mikaele, Twal had disappointing seasons and Eiso is gone.

We do too much defending and don’t make enough metres. It’s on the pack and our halves to fix that goes both ways I think

Our halves were awful but our forwards were the biggest disappointment imo, especially for the last half of the year. Nowhere near enough metres to be competitive and overall poor defence. I had high hopes for Twal and Mikaele but they both had very poor seasons, Mikaele in particular. Not sure what happened to him.

Injuries affected both those guys. Hopefully Mikaele gets that knee fixed up and after his long layoff Twal didn’t find his form again, prior to that he was up there with the best forwards in the comp.

Pack definitely needs improving and Madge would be hoping Tamou helps not just on the field but off it. If all our forwards can play their best footy it’s a strong team it’s just consistency that always plagues us

Twal was up there defensively but he was never close to one of the best ball runners in the comp. He’s been disappointing. We’ll see about Mikaele. But if we enter next season as it stands with no new forwards we’re going to get smoked every week once again.

Twal doesn’t make damaging runs but he’ll make good metres and find his front. Mikaele showed that he can be very good in a few games this year but overall struggled. Don’t see our pack changing that much as with the rest of the squad it’ll be 2022 where there’ll be major changes

he only ran over 100m 4 times all season. Needs to do better than that.

Whole lot better than our other forwards. He’s the least of our worries he’s proven he can play pretty well and pump out big minutes if need be.

Aloiai was our best middle forward in 2020. Not even close. Eisenhuth was probably second best (which is a worry).

Aloiai had his best year in a tigers jersey this year. Twal was very very disappointing. Hopefully it was injuries and he can deliver what he’s capable of in 2021

I find the critique on Twal harsh. Start of the year everyone wanted him playing origin, a few average games (not even bad) after injury and all of a sudden it’s been a bad year. Recency bias has affected peoples memories I reckon. He still averaged more metres a game than almost all our forwards and is still our best defender.

A starting pack of Aloiai, Tamou, Twal, Luc and Blore will be decent it’s the bench that might be an issue. Musgrove looks decent, Stefano hopefully goes good, Mikaele is inconsistent and McIntyre while looking good is not a numbers guy.

Aloiai definitely was best season he’s played and I hope he continues it. Did well when he wasn’t struggling through injury as he has in previous years

So will he miss round 1? Or is there a way to avoid the suspension by doing it in a trial game or something

I wonder if Blore could make a transition to front-row, he’s very young and already a pretty big rig. Might end up like Fisher-Harris?

Maybe eventually but I’m pretty sure they want to start him on the edge. Gus Gould said his best attribute is his hole running and he looked good there in the limited minutes he played there vs eels

The Dragons have confirmed that three players won’t be offered new contracts beyond this season.

The club announced yesterday that Tristan Sailor, Jacob Host and Joe Lovodua would depart

I would take Jacob Host as bench second rower if Garner leaves. I thought he had some good games this year. Sailor is a decent little player as well, Lovadua has good wraps on him too but never really watched him play.
