    Junior Burger improves our attack but makes our defence worse. A fair trade, IMO, given what we’ve shown this year:

    2018
    Utility: Gutherson, Hayne (30), Salmon, Smith, Takairangi
    Fullback: French
    W/C: Aukafolau (21), Auva'a (26), Davis (23), Hoffman, G.Jennings (25), M.Jennings, Leleisiuao (21)
    Half: Moses, Norman
    Hooker: King (27), Mahoney (20), K. Pritchard (24)
    Edge forward: Gower (33), Ma'u, Moeroa, Niukore (22), Scott (34), Stone (21), Williams (30)
    Tight forward: Alvaro, Brown, Evans, Mannah, Matagi (30), Terepo (27), Vave (29)

    2019
    Utility: Gutherson (25), Salmon, Smith, Takairangi (30)
    Fullback: French (23)
    W/C: Hoffman (31), M.Jennings (31)
    Half: Moses (25), Norman (28)
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: Ma'u (31), Moeroa (24)
    Tight forward: Alvaro (26), Brown, Evans, Mannah (31), Paulo

    2020
    Utility: Salmon (21), Smith (28)
    Fullback: -
    W/C: -
    Half: -
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: -
    Tight forward: Brown, Evans (28), Paulo

    2021
    Utility: -
    Fullback: -
    W/C: -
    Half: -
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: -
    Tight forward: Brown (28), Paulo

    2022
    Utility: -
    Fullback: -
    W/C: -
    Half: -
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: -
    Tight forward: Paulo (29)

    So we (officially) have at least 16 merkins in next year's squad.

    Interestingly we already have seven top 17 forwards contracted for next year, eight including Takairangi.

    I assume Mahoney is contracted next year. Maybe top 30.

    I told you to call me when we signed some better middle forwards.

    You also shit canned all of us.

    Consequently, we didn’t call you. It might tell you something.

    Yeah, Chip he has a point. I mean all these other merkins deserved it but you could have said everyone except me.

    Hope we get one good one, rather than a few that are all unreliable in performing...

    I don't think we'll be looking at too many more forwards for our top 17:

    8. Alvaro
    9.
    10. Paulo
    11. Ma'u
    12. Moeroa
    13. Brown
    14.
    15. Takairangi
    16. Evans
    17. Mannah

    Though Arthur does seem to like having more than 17 top 17 players, iykwimaityd.

    Taka might remain at centre as apart from Jennings we don’t have any other real centre options signed.

    You'll have to be more specific than that. If I'm at X, where is Clintherson?
