Lost me with this I just don't see it even at full strength we have big holes. Let's say what you say is true we have a hooker who will be lucky to play at all next season and a fullback who hasn't shown himself durable enough to dream he will be fit for a full season (even half a season is hard to imagine).manly have a good list (when fit)
On top of that a 5/8/centre who struggles to get on the field. A winger who the coach rates as first choice who seems like he has picked up a 12 month injury.
If we could guarantee Tom plays a full season I'm onboard a top4 side but until he proves he can play a full season I struggle to see it.
