Our backrow is better now than it was then in my opinion. I also think what Paseka/Lodge showed this year is better than Taupau.We need a pack like we had in 2019

I didn’t include Harper as his off contract. The other players have contracts. Rumor has it they are free to leave if they get a new contract.You can add Harper to that list. He won't be here next year from all reports.
But to answer your question, we need another prop in the AFB mould. Unfortunately, you can't just pick them up at your local supermarket. So Paseka is going to have to be that beast. Partnering Lodge.
Penrith didn't make the finals that year, it would have been us against Canberra and the winner plays The Roosters in the GF. Would have been hard pressed against the Roosters, but Canberra was certainly doable.True. Although we still would have lost against Penrith imo.
