Back injury....

“Scott could have played on for a few weeks, but he’s not 100% so there is no point in making his injury worse and then loose him for the full year. We’ve taken the decision to get him treated now and back to full fitness as soon as possible for the remainder of the season.

“Masi’s had a knock on his shoulder in a tackle which did a bit of damage and playing him is not worth the risk. He’s in rehab and should be available later this month".

Is Matongo ever not injured?

I think it's time for Brown to replace him

Frustrating to restart without Taylor but I suspect all teams will pick up injuries in the first few rounds.

Hopefully Bienek and Brown will get a chance.

Played 46 games or so games in 2018/19, so doing think injuries are a big problem.

Agreed with you and other posters that Brown should be above him and Fash,these two wont be everything more than steady SL props (You do need these type of players to balance the cap) but Brown could be a superstar, I'll be disappointed if he doesn't at least play half the games this season, given the chance I think he will stand out and be a horse choice prop next season.

Brown definitely in Last's thinking. Not sure where we stand contract wise with Leigh on Bienek and Cameron Scott in terms of loan doesn't sound straightforward. Scott will be down the pecking order for now but I do think he has a lot of potential.

Matongo 53 appearances in what 5 seasons

It's not enough.

I'd release him he's 24

I'd say that's about right for a player of his standard, and age you cant have a team of superstars and he is a decent squad player, remember he started playing RL a lot later than most players his age.

No other players will be released, particularly those in contract, who do you replace them with, market will be terrible for next year.

I'd replace him with someone like Brown who will be available more, more likely to challenge for a starting spot thus creating competition and who has a lot more assertiveness than Matongo, who lets not kid ourselfs doesn't go looking for work when he does play.

It's the settling for average that makes us inconsistent

We need an ever evolving squad improvement mentality.

What do you mean replace him with someone like Brown, if you mean Beiwn, how can he replace him when they are both in the squad together.

I've already highlighted than Masi has a pretty good injury record, certainly better than Savelio, shall we release him aswell.

So who replaces Masi next season, do we have another young prop ready? We are already losing Ratu, Kelly and probably Jones, I'm not sure we can afford to just release a contracted (cheap) player without a replacement.

Brown would be ahead Masi and Fash for certain though.

I also think the likes of Masi and Fash who have shown potential deserve a chance under the new coaching team.
