Would expect Seyfarth to be player #30 on a bare minimum contract. Is very young, works very hard and will improve. Eiso would’ve cost more and is 28 or 29 so I can understand the decision salary cap wise.
They could possibly extend Seyfarth’s contract for a couple of more years and keep him in the Canterbury Cup system and see how he matures.
that kid from NQ
Are you talking about Simpkins ? Have we got him.
Tamou is a good start, but Blore and Stefano are rookies. I hope they live up to our expectations.
Apparently it was close last time I heard about it. We also have a couple of edge backrowers in lower grades. I honestly think Blore and Leilua , is a formidable second row combo , with McIntyre at 13. Blore and McIntyre make really good contact In defence. It’s rare , they are passive. Mikalele and Twal , really have to work on this , as too many of thier first contacts are Aaron woods level pillow . And it just kills any chance in winning the attrition .
Right, so that would be a no we haven’t signed Simpkins?
What was clear tonight which really was the story all year.
We need a fullback with top end speed enter the .
We need some big tough front rowers we couldn’t handle Paulo. Enter Tamou and Utoikamanu. I
Douhiei is a 5/8 and better with Brooks. Exit Marshall.
Kepoa starts on a wing and Talau replaces Mbye.
BJ has to come back I top condition a game breaker when fit.
We need a goal kicker which is a massive issue.
I thought Tommy looked better than BJ especially in defence
I think both Tommy and A.K are going to serve the WTs very well in the future with more experience and game time. But I have to say I love this Asu Kapaoa kids confidence nothing seems to faze him and you can see he improves with each game his played.
