So for next season we shall have new signings Hastings, French, Burgess and Clarke and lose Williams. There will still be some on here who will find fault with the situation.

Then tell me whose you think is better then we can debate it. It's alright saying you can't see what sets a current England International, a former international (and arguably the most underrated 2nd row in the comp) and the current England and Great Britain captain who is almost universally accepted as the best back rower in Superleague on his day, apart from anyone else. Give me your better back 3 and I'll happily tell you. :wink:

How many games has O’Loughlin actually started this season? And how many last season?
Referencing the international selection really doesn’t set them apart from either Saints or Wire for that matter.
You may feel your back row is better, you might be right, but not by so much as to refer to them as outstanding.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Its true Burgess is past his best but he should still be a handful for SL defences. He and Bullock on together should be exciting. Those two will pull defenders tight in the middle and create spaces out wide.

Ive said for a couple of years that i think Tom is the better of the 3. Sam is also past his best.

You missed Bibby of that list and lose Sargison.

We've basically lost Williams, Sarginson, Hamlin, Tautai and some younger fringe players and replaced them with George Burgess, Bevan French, Jackson Hastings, Mitch Clarke and Bibby.

Not bad business at all.

George is 27 and nowhere near past his best. This season he has played better after a poor 2018. If we can get him motivated he will be the best prop in SL by a distance

Sam Burgess is Souths most important player, now hes had his op on a nagging injury he will show his worth come playoff time.

Have you watched any NRL this season?

So your post is basically opinion based on wishful thinking and misunderstanding. O'loughlin has played 18 times this season and been playing longer minutes than any recent season. Up until a couple weeks ago he was apparently 4th at the club for most minutes played. So what's your point here?

As for 'not setting us apart from Saints'; who in their back row is a current international? Zeb Taia? Nope. Dominic Peyroux? Don't think so. LMS? Well if you count 2nd tier nations I guess. Joseph Paulo? Does a 2nd tier nation 2 years ago count as current? The only 1st tier appearance between the lot of them is 1 appearance for New Zealand nearly a decade ago! If you see that as the same may I suggest your viewpoint might be a little suspect?

I see you still haven't given me your better back row (I'm assuming Saints is just a wind up?). Come on, spit it out and at least give me a crack at it.
