Would like Des to play Sironen at lock in 2021 (moving Jake to prop).

Siro looks too slow on the edges and his addiction to stepping back into the ruck is stifling our outside backs.

He started NRL as a 5/8th so should be able to distribute the ball to edges (as Jakes does now).

Plus, he's another big body in the middle who Des should tell to run straight and hard.

Id prefer him as prop i reckon. Needs an interchange. Adds some mobility and the ballskills he has seem better suited on the inside to a speed man up the guts

But no more second row

I agree. For the same reasons i want Jake as a prop again. He just stifles the attack. Its always 3rd tackle Siro. 4th tackle Jake. 5th tackle a **** bomb from DCE.

Have observed Siro slowing down line speed in defence, dont think he is an eighty minute player under the new rules. We need a more moblie backrow. Having said that he still has plenty to offer so moving hime to the middle could work with right rotation.

IMO Sirro can ballplay but the game plan is Chez turning him back inside....and Suli doesn't seem the type to command the ball so unless he does..

For a former 5/8 he has no passing game which is one of the most unbelievable things, like... ever.

Lock might be better for him to be able to have some space to pass the ball as he often gets the ball at second-row with such little space that he runs inside toward the middle (and has made a habit of it). Best thing would be for us to sign Sitili Tupouinua or Angus Chricton, promote Olakautau to 11 and move Siro to lock or the bench. He's still a good influence on the team but I agree with your points. Our pack just needs to freshen up a bit by some shuffling and new signings.
