1 leutele( hopefully)

3 richardson( maybe as a cheap tommy replacement but ide rather have lino)
4 senior( very underrated winger imo and we could then release miski for quota spot which is wasted on a backup player)
5 westerman( long shot but would boost our back row options after all our recent losses)
6 edwards( same as above but obviously the quota thing)
7 obrien( Definately an underrated player who would be very versatile and handy as backup…. Can also kick goals well which is always a bonus when we have injuries)
I wouldn’t go near westerman now, too old and when he went to wolves didn’t think he really shone there
Westerman won’t happen as he’s too old but for me he’s been one of the best back rows in the league this season, he ripped us apart in a game earlier this season.

I’m guessing the player is King which is doing the rounds this weekend, which I wouldn’t be too against at the right price but would rather it be Leutele.
French out Leutele in with Miski taking the wing slot is what I'm thinking will happen, I'd be happy with that given French's desire to go yam

How did he rip us apart?? We beat Castleford home & away this season & last!!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

An individual can have a strong game and be on the losing side imo.

Yes, I know that, but to say he ‘ripped us apart’ I think was a bit over the top.

Potentially OTT but he had a really good game, can’t remember too many individual performances that good against us. I have just looked at the stats and it was nearly 180 yards, 4 tackle busts and 2 clean breaks. I remember us struggling to handle him most of the match and at one point was shocked he left Bateman for dust (think John must have been injured).

Richardson signed a 2 year extension last week. I’d go nowhere near him.

Brodie Croft or Mason Lino are the only halves I’d be considering but both not gonna happen.

What is this thinking that we need a shiny new halfback? Harry Smith & Cade Cust are starting every game next year when fit & the club have a very promising young halfback they want to develop in Logan Astley.

If anything, we need a new hooker to replace Tommy to come off the bench if the club do not rate Brad O'Neill and/or Sam Powell.
