It’ll be interesting to see who we get seeing as reports suggest we are looking at forwards out there. I know we were looking at Kurt Capewell last year who made the SOO Queensland team, so if we’re after a player of his Ilk I’ll be chuffed. Anyone have any ideas.

This potential signing could make a huge difference. If we were to sign a no nonsense quality prop that would be a huge step in the right direction for team building for 2021.

3 props (and a right winger if I’m picky) and we are pretty much sorted.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Be nice to pick up another kelepi like signing, not necessarily someone out of contract now but someone who’d be open to a move over

To be honest I’m not the least bit excited.

I’d much rather them use the cash to sign Battye. If we don’t I’d like to know what an English player needs to do to get a good contract.

The blokes proved himself at London and now with us. He also has the unusual quality of appearing to enjoy playing the game.

He’s a win win, not an NRL gamble.

I would really like us to keep him too.

However, three of our props were loan players last year, another is off contract, and one who is contracted, has been told he can go too, so we do need more props.

Some are talking second rowers, which I feel, given who we already have, would be a waste of budget and cap space

Who's the one who's been told he can go?

It was Green, and it was in one of the rugby papers when it was first announced that we had been re-linked to Sam Williams, whether that is still the case I'm not sure

Thought you meant that. It's been denied by both club and player. He denied it on TotalRL a few days back. Gossip it would appear.

What quota space do we have?

I'm thinking that we have contracted:
Tupou
Miller
Fifita
Arona
Tanginoa
Lino

That's 6 - what is the limit these days???

Who the hell knows. Just wondering, does Miller still count or does residency not apply anymore?
