    When was the last time Beau Scott played mainly on an edge?

    It's about whether or not he can play there effectively. I reckon he still could.

    But it's also why there's no need to update the list.

    Ffs, you teckoned Kearney could coach too. Doesn't make it true.

    It's clear from the squads in future years Scott is no longer an edge forward at our club.

    Kenny played hooker once - may as well list him in that position too!

    Well don't mention retirements in this thread unless they necessitate an update. FFS haven't you read the forum rules?

    I wrote half of them

    You see Poo, I was just letting you know he didn't extend his contract and that he officially retired, just doing my job as a competent moderator

    Well he's still getting paid a lot of money to do it, so I'll wait until he retires before writing him off.
    After next year he probably won't be at our club at all.
    Once is too small a sample. Scott came to us as an edge forward. He's just more valuable in the middle.
