If we entertain letting Sironen go, we have completely lost our marbles.

Addin Fonua-Blake
Joel Thompson
Curtis Sironen

For

Andrew Davey
Luke Garner
Josh Aloiai

Is not an upgrade in any way whatsoever. In fact it's a huge step backwards. We'd also have to be getting masses of cap space back. You'd get all three players for Addin Fonua-Blakes contract price alone.

Addin Fonua-Blake - Bad Egg who had checked out. would have been more damaging to keep him.
Joel Thompson - Loyal servant just making up numbers last season.
Curtis Sironen - As others have said - just waiting for his break out season??????? When if ever...

Im also confused as to the moaning and crap Des has received for not plying the next big thing Olakau'atu? with sirro moving on that frees up a starting second row for the kid?

I agree with your points on the 3 players in AFB, Joel and Siro.

With Guaca Des indicated he was playing him in the middle last season after that one game where he played on an edge and had a good game.

From my perspective similar to your point on Joel that’s where Guaca was very unlucky not to get the next game as a starting edge forward, played well in a team of underachieving senior players and gets thrown in the middle as a bench player.

In the squad as it stands for backrowers we have JetSki, Siro, Davey and Guaca, if Des plays him as an edge forward. Letting Siro go without another edge forward leaves us short in this position.
