    Lomax and Herbert will be great.
    Hopefully Field will learn to defend, he can certainly attack.
    I think they put him there to get the attack going, it's worked as they have won a few in a row. Just work on his D now.

    Field played pretty well yesterday in his natural position. Fullback is not his go. He had a great halves combination with Payne in the U20's and last week (with Payne) and this week (with Nicholls) he seems to be a more relaxed player.

    The bigger issue for mine is that Herbert is unsigned passed this year, as is LAM, Sele, Garrick, Periera (all of which I would re-sign) as well as Nighty, Allgood (who I wouldn't re-sign) and Latimore.(??? over re-sign).

    I think you've got that pretty well right. I would not re-sign Latimore, Nightingale, Allgood and maybe even Garrick but would extend, LAM, Sele, Periera. We need backup players and if LAM moves on, we need to buy an extra two really good props for next season.

    I assume you also mean to re-sign Herbert as well.
    I agree we need a couple of props but who? there isn't that much quality available other than Boyd and I think he will go to the Titans on big money. The rest are not much better than what we have although I think Vave could be value.
    BTW Garrick is improving now that he is over injury and playing centre.
    Recruitment is a real jigsaw now, filling basically 2 squads, those who will play 1st grade, those who should be ready to play first grade and those who are really just reggies players. Don't forget we also have development players that need to be either promoted or continue with their development for another year. It not as simple as signing X, because whatever we pay for X, will have a domino effect of other players in the squad who may need upgrading a current contract (Lomax for example) or re-signing a current player (LAM or Sele for example).

    Latimore would be cheap and he is experienced. Depending on who's available, he may be worth keeping.
    Agree re Allgood and Nighty.

    P.S look at penrith and the cover they have. Injuries galore...they have done very well...

    Latimore deserves another year provided he doesn't cost too much.

    Leilani Latu is currently sitting in Q cup. I think he would be a good buy.
