    I'm glad Naiqama is with us for another year. He was always an attacking weapon so if he can get his defensive issues sorted under Cleary then he could really be pushing for a regular first grade spot.

    Problem I see with Fonua/Marsters at right centre is that they are too short to really contest bombs. Maybe I'm wrong though

    Yes, that potential tag nearly destroyed us didn't it.

    he has improved in the ESL, much like Fonua.

    However, he will be a depth player.

    I don't believe he is.

    He may be retained for depth though.

    He will b well down the pecking order probably even below the defence challenged Naquama although he may b a surprise packet & hopefully better than I'm expecting.Our top 5 3/4's are Suli Marsters Nofa Fonua & Milne then there's probably a bit of a gap.I certainly can't c MWZ getting much of an NRL gig unless of course we r heavily whacked with the injury stick to the outside backs.Albeit we r looking good with our stocks in the 3/4's as well as our forwards.

    If our halves & Lolo aim up this team could b anything !

    YOu can keep Taylor in your teams because we have just resigned him for a further 3 seasons!

    What a boost. Although I think we all knew he would

    ET can take the captain's badge then too. Will be sticking around longer than Lawrence and likely to be playing more often.
