Shouldnt forget young Koula, who is a real speedster apparently and in the 30. As for Hoppa, what I read somewhere he is already gone and Manly has severed ties with him. A shame, because I think he'll become a top player in time, but we have some excellent replacements.
If we have signed Saab and the Roosters winger I think it is safe to say young Hoppa is gone

Miski - Blacktown, Jorge gone, Garrick ???? Leaves Funa, Parker and Harper fighting with the two new boys and maybe Suli - good depth. Was just thinking these two young guys wont have it their own way - yes I think Funa and Harper will make strong cases as will Parker. Will be interesting to see what happens but gee we now have great depth but yes three will have to move on I guess.

Given we know how loyal Des is, I can’t see Garrick missing out on Round 1. Id give him a few weeks to discover his 2019 form.

and that leaves out Harper who also looked pretty good - certainly that try he scored was all class.
Harper will get a chance as well. Really like Harper, a few games in reserves to build confidence and form, then he’ll feature a lot in first grade as well you would think with injury. Walker is likely on his last contract with us (who knows), so we have a centre spot up for grabs beyond that if someone wants to grab it (maybe even burbo).

yep agreed - but I want to get through 2021 with a Premiership then Walker can go - actually I think when his head is right he is a bloody good Centre and we wouldn't want to let him go. I think Suli is the less talented Centre. Again he can be a beast but he can be lazy as hell!

Yeah although it’s disappointing he got in trouble again im glad he hasn’t been stood down yet. Our club has probably been the most affected by that policy

That 2nd backline is about what we had all year, sometimes even worse. No wonder we struggled

I’d puke too BUT for one year he’d be a revelation for us but he’s still a ****!!
Yes he is a great player, but I would have to gouge my eyes out with a pencil before I could watch one of our games.

I am one. Things are finally on the up. I stand by what I have said previously. Let’s see if we use the young talent we have signed.

OK didn't expect 2 new wingers.

Given a winger's role in the modern game is to take 1-3 of the first hit-ups of a new set, how do people feel about Saab/2Epoopoo (really gotta check that kids name...) and their ability to plug a major weakness from 2020?

ie starting our 3rd tackle on the 20m, with opposition defensive line set, our Forwards still running back on-side, our backs trying to do quick play-the-balls to milk 6-again only to be NOOOO DENIED by Refs not giving us a meal ticket.

They will jump for bombs better i'm sure, but bombs to wingers are always a speculator as is - assuming we get field position. We don't get that when we are pegged in on our 20m on tackle 3 - rather DCE is going for a 40/20 or long-kick down the throat of opposition FB/W.

As long as Walks gets the right utensils when demanded, he’ll be fine.
