    Halfway through the season I felt we needed a prop.

    However, next year we will have:

    King and Kite to start
    Rose and Lussick on the bench

    Joe can slot in if required

    I think that we might actually be short in the back three:

    Stewart - dodgy knee
    Wolf - may not play again / injured often
    Hoppa - gone
    Robertson
    Oldfield

    Of the 4 we have, 2 are injury prone and 1 is still green. Where is the backup? Whare?

    Thoughts?

    Weaknesses: learning to throw a straight jab.
    I don't think Gift could hit a telephone booth if he was inside it!

    Green isn't a ereal problem, just look at Hoppa, Buhrer & Lussick.

    Apparently Astro Boy is coming back, Williams should be good to go. We also have young Ben Shorter & Blake Davey in reggies who will be pushing up with Whare for a start. Oldfield is a fullback (despite peoples observations) and Farrar will be there. I think Davey has played the odd game at fullback but not ones that I've seen.

    Before anyone dismisses what I'm saying, remember back to the start of this year when DCE & Lussick were considered as unknowns. Trust me, you have to trust the club on this one.

    Astro Boy = Farrar?

    I didn't know that. Good news, he can cover a bunch of backline positions.

    Yeah mate, that's the rumour anyway.
    If not, between the young blokes, at least one of them will be a superstar.

    It sounds like it is nearly past the line and Farrar is a perfect fit versatility wise to replace Hoppas spot in the squad

    No doubt that Crusher is already working on any supposed weaknesses

    I think we can cover most of those spots from within. The worry for me is second year syndrome of DCE. However if he doesn't suffer from it we'll be even better and win the Minor Premiership by the length of the straight.

    The intent was always to bring Farrar back if they had some wriggle room under the cap in 2012. Still to be confirmed.

    I think it's amazing and a tribute to the club that we haven't spent any money on bringing big name players in.

    Don't worry, I'm sure Paul Kent will find fault with our policy.

    If you mean Farrar, i read it here first.

    If you mean my judgement of the youngens, I'll dig my own grave on that one.

    Farrer said himself at the awards night he'd be looking to come back in 2012 if there was room. We haven't heard anything since and things change so not sure. It would be good to have him back. Was always a class act on and off the field.

    Not a huge Farrar fan at all. He has 100% dig & filled in reasonably well but imo lacks genuine pace & was very shaky under the high ball. Good enough fill in during the season but come big games would be murdered by any half or 5/8 with a good kicking game. As for the weakness, heard the same thing pre season in 2011 & look at us now.
