We seem to be building a team of props, all three the recent rumoured players are primary props, along with Masi, Bowden, Taylor, Levy, Brown, Bienek, Fash.

I'll be slightly disappointed if we sign the likes of Satae and Sao after been linked with Glenn and Thompson, we need a leader in the pack to replace Ellis (Who even if he plays next year, we probably play around 50% of games)

As Jake has mentioned, if we lose Washbrook, Manu, Mini, Westerman and Hadley, that leave us short in the back row, and with no young players in that position, a few injuries and we could be in trouble.

I think one of Satae/Sao would be Ok, but the other NRL signing should be someone with more experienced and proven.


Alex Glenn's family didn't want to come over to England that's why he's not coming

Thompson wanted marquee Money and we are not prepared to pay it. Merrin is going back isn't he so he will replace him

2nd rowers for next season Jones, Savelio, Lane. Satae can play their too, maybe Griffin will be our our 4th 2nd rower if needed

Nowhere near enough and it doesn't look like Satae has ever played back row, certainly no first grade or Canterbury cup.

Our backrow will be

Jones
Savelio
Sao

Which looks good, but little back up and no leader.

Not much of an upgrade from this year IMO, plus far fewer bodies.

I presume Manu Ma'u also fell off the radar a la Thompson & Glenn ?

I think it's an upgrade, Jnes is much better than anything we have and one of the best backrowers in SL, add to this a hopefully fully fit Savelio playing outside, we have some real strike and offloading ability which we don't have this year. Westerman is the only real big loss from those listed.

The two kiwis rumoured are gambles although Sao getting very good reviews this year.

Depth and leadership are the big concerns IMO.

Just looked at Jones stats from the weekend,

22 tackles, 6 tackle busts, 158 metres from 18 runs (9 meters gain), no errors and 5 offloads.

I'm not sure any of our backrowers are cable of those stats.

Can't wait to see him play with the likes of Shaul, Connor and Kelly.
