FMD,everyone needs to calm the **** down........the season has not started yet,and while/whilst we are all nostrodamus,give it a week or two into the season maybe......
While I love this, I can't help but look at the talent level of our squad and be underwhelmed. For us to make the 8 I see us needing 4 or 5 players to far exceed their historical zenith and a really good injury run.

2 years down the track may be a different story altogether...more likely 4 years when DCE's money is recouped.

Just my team list going off what ando and Snake have posted. As far as news is concerned, I'm probably less in the know than you Frankie boy.
I do like your side... would prob have guac instead of Jetski myself but am fully aware that won't happen

A little bit out of left field but Walker would not be that unsuited at full back . Would have to be generally unproven there one would think but a seasoned enough footy player now to be able to make the switch . Just would have to consider what major advantages Walker at the back would have over Harper and Funa there and taking into account Des 's preference to play Harper at full back in the trials . Got no doubt that Snake 's mail is reliable and Harper is in favour to be in the starting back line somewhere for round one but with a bit of speculation now just what position . Des seems to like Parker for what ever reason but if he is going to be more in favour then Suli for instance , far from ideal in that Suli then can not be hardly playing to his potential and with his not insignificant contract value .

I recall Walker playing some fullback in the past.
Was not impressed... but was a long time ago.
He seems to have bulked up... not sure if that is an advantage or not.

Isn't Segeyaro available? Can't be any worse then what we have for hooker atm.

Given our off field issues in the last few years some would say we have a culture problem. Can’t see Segeyaro improving that image. More baggage than a Qantas Air bus.

I understand that he has baggage but giving him a 1 year deal could work. I rather strengthen the side not weaken it.

So do I - he was atrocious. I hope he is in the centres but who knows.

Is walker in the photo from the beach flag launch and the dinner at the steyne?
Speculative theory: Walker's bail conditions state that he should not drink alcohol - which would be a good reason not to attend the awards night & maybe also skip the beach photo shoot beforehand?

Well... if it is only a condition that one "should not" drink alcohol.... lol

Surely not Walker at fullback ?? I'd say Funa would be front runner wouldn't he. Unless Wasabi has some junior history in the 1 jersey that I'm not aware of.
