Bring in a ball playing 'linking' 13 and spell Lockers as a prop. Still better than most props we have.

Go with
Lockers
Flower
Bullock
Clark

as our 4 main props.

Lockers at prop is not a bad call, it worked well for Andy Farrell and may have a similar effect.

In theory... Worth bearing in mind that Farrel was about 29 when he left, SOL is 36 now... Time to move on, sadly.
Officially RLFAN's most Doe-eyed Happy Clapper.

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.

Stevie Menzies was still performing well at a high level at 40. Age is a factor, but not the only factor. I believe Lockers is still one of, if not our best player.

Yeah that’s a fair point, but if it’s only for 12 months it might be a risk worth taking

Please rattle me off a few more who were performing at top level at 40... Irrelevant. Time to go, we can't be sentimental.

And Paul Gallen is still performing at a fantastic level, plus doing big minutes, at the age of 37. But every player is different. Because Gallen does it, doesn't mean O'Loughlin should or ought to be able to. And clearly, he can't. Which is absolutely fair enough; he has had a fantastic career. And he should call it a day now.

No that's not the point. The point is age is a factor bit not the only factor. Look at the player not his age. The Steve Menzies is just an example that age isn't the only factor.

Hopefully that makes sense.
