Looks like we have him at the right price and conditions. Fully fit he is worth $900k maybe more, so if we got him for 350k and he only plays 1/3rd of games we have got our moneys worth. I think Schuster will become a ball playing lock and Jake will move to prop. If Foz gets injured Shuster slots back in at 5/8, jake to lock and promote a prop. Having Foran in the halves gives us genuine game management and strike on both sides and it takes pressure off both Foran and DCE then add a roaming Turbo into the mix and it all of a sudden puts defences into awkward situations instead of reading our attack like a book. But most importantly we get a genuine strike centre with Walker going back to his natural position. All this positivity comes from one 350k signing with no risk after a year. Just need Cade Cust to cover as a decent hooker for 6 months until Manase is back then use them on rotation like the Le'Strange and Ballin combo once Fainu returns. We really just need a top quality edge back rower and we will be a serious contenders.
