Also, would he not take up a quota spot


Squad utility value? Is he now an out and out 2nd rower?

I agree there Homme Vaste.

We have Lyne and Tupou, with also Arundel.

As for second row/loose forward etc, we already have Kirmo, Ashurst, Horo, Batchelor, Arona, Annakin and also Crowther.

Chessie has already identified the half back situation. Other than that, and maybe replacing departing players, quite happy with the squad, and can't see there been too much movement

Don't let the fact he's a kiwi and that our quota is full for next year get in the way of a good rumour eh.

FWIW i think if we are looking at signing a half back, Matty smith would be the one. Big game experience, english and after being dropped for a young lad, probably has a point to prove.

That being said I am happy with hampshire at 7, and signing a less experienced junior 'project' as a back up to Hampshire and Miller

Smith is already signed to Catalans for 2019.

Chester certainly identified a HB as a signing for next season, since then (and I know it's only been a short while) has Chester seen something in the Miller/Hampshire partnership meaning he can leave the partnership to flourish rather than adding to the squad?

Thats my thought too Jinjer.

Having said that the interview he did with James Deighton where nhe said they were looking to bring in a quality half was only just prior to the Hull game

But Wigan chose to ship him out and replace him with their hooker Sam Powell.

Has this been confirmed anywhere?

I'm just asking because you claimed Fifita was signing for Wire and I've seen Wire fans claiming they are signing Arona, also not true.

BTW, I don't want Matty Smith at Wakey, I'd want somebody younger.

It is "Fifita" not "Fafita"

If you don't know the difference between "there", "their" and "they're" I might get annoyed.

After he had just won the grand final with Wigan, and then Saints were more than happy to sign him.... Also didnt Leuluai replace him?

There is only so much you can spend on a salary cap though. Its all about perceived value, ultimately you can't have everyone and someone has to go. I'd imagine Powell would be on less than Smith, which makes the decision easier if you think they are of a similar benefit to the team. Why do you think Tomkins is leaving Wigan, even though he has been having his best season for 5 or so years, its all balancing the books.
