Re: Official thread and signing news

No point giving Munster an early release, we'll have an extra million under the salary cap but there's no one left to spend it on. He'll go okay next year, It's his last chance at a premiership and it's supposedly Bellamy's last year. Pezet might be ready for '24.

Re: 2023 Best Line Up

The backs pick themselves, the only question is whether George can get his spot back given Meaney is likely to train pre season predominantly at fullback. Or if Warbrick can push into firsts at some point on merit. Round one middle rotation I reckon Welch Tui NAS (13) Sims King (bench 13) Moeroa Apa...

Re: Official thread and signing news

Surprised we haven't signed Alec MacDonald yet and also surprised either Tom Eisenhuth or Chris Lewis weren't re-signed yesterday. With all the backs signed yesterday does that mean that Young Tonumaipea doesn't get re-signed? Shocked they haven't signed McDonald, unless he's going back to a develo...

Tui missed most of 2020 due to a back injury he sustained while (over)training in isolation.

Meaney's shoulder not a structural injury.

Re: RD 19 Rabbitohs vs Storm

Bit of perspective here. Jesse and Josh have carried us this year. NAS doesn't do a pre season so starts the year short on fitness Christian is gone rd1 Tui missing until rd 10 No Jordan or Tom until this month Tepai took a while to really start making an impact then getting injured Brandon's form t...

Re: 2022 talk

Interesting that none of Tom, Tepai or Jordan have been used in the trials. You'd think at least one of them will be required for Rd1, even if Brandon gets off.
Judging by the trial teams the bench is looking like Nikorima, NAS, Loiero and Howarth.

Re: 2022 talk

A lot of talk seems to be around Harry starting at 9 and Brandon at 13 but I don't know why we would change such a successful formula from last year (and a great point of difference to other teams) with Harry 14 and Brandon 9. Harry comes on at 9 first interchange and Brandon moving to 13 and the 13...

Re: Official thread and signing news

So Brandon's 'apology' basically says he stands by everything he said but he's sorry if we don't like it. And he's a victim.
I'm glad the club said it 'acknowledges' the apology, not 'accepts'.
