Problem for some is, we keep referring to the top 17. You really need to building/developing to a top 30 if you want to do well over a few seasons. Also, we keep talking up players who either have been injured or just coming out of the SGBall team. Yes they are our future but 2020 is here now!
We need to have 6 props of first grade quality in our squad of 30. Starting 2020, we have Taupau,AFB,Paseka, Sipley & Boyle. Seems like Keppie is next. All other names being thrown around like Fainu & Saddler have to use 2020 as their grounding for 2021. These guys haven't got out of Flegg yet...
It will not be the dearest 30 contracts. It is if you are signed for the squad of 30.
Still remember back in the late 60s and early 70s and the squad of 55 were listed in the paper to cover tbe 3 grades.
You may think i am crazy but
Let the video refs run the game. They are meant to have better vision and there are 3 in the box. One can watch the 10metres, one watch the ruck and the other can be on the hotphone with greenberg,
Smith was signed for 2 years and i am sure he is in the top 30.
Hoppa,metcalfe, schuster would be perfect for the development squad as they will need time to get over injuries and prove themselves in tbe reggies and after june 30 are available for nrl.
I would have either trex or perrett on...
