Great thread. It’s a massive issue for next season.
Richards & Galloway gone. Lawrence reportedly being shoped around with Farah being pushed out. Halatau I believe is staying. No experienced players coming in.
Let’s say Halatau and Lawrence stay and Farah goes or at least isn’t picked. They’ll be the only two when origin comes around with over 100 first grade games experience. That is a centre turned second-rower and a lock utility. Woods has just made it to 100 games. I think after them, there would be a bunch of boys no more then 70 including Tedesco, Ava (if we sign him up), Sue, Sironen and Taupau.
That’s a huge issue. On field leadership will be non-existent. You can’t just throw a jersey flegg aged team with a couple of older boys and expect we’ll climb the ladder. Teams will know to bash us and we won’t remain composed in the tough times.
Farah has experienced it all before and it’s no coincidence our very lean times came after he broke his hand. His guidance and canny know-how is vital to a developing team.
