    I reckon Terepo is a keeper. Still very young and can improve. If only other in our pack run the ball with that much passion!

    Agree with all of those in bold Avenger, maybe keep Sio or Morgan if we can't get them at the right price.

    Terepo, Allgood and Lussick have all been disappointing and won't be missed long term.

    He's 23 this year. Next year he will be in his mid 20s. Obviously he's not at his peak but he's probably not far away. He's a bit undersized for a prop but he is very quick. That's the reason for his big collisions, not passion.

    Terepo is too small to be a prop and lacks skill to be second rower. Move him on

    Also too many time ive seen the ball being spread with an overlap and he just stops the movement and runs forward.Has no vision too one dimensional and would rather MoiMoi the rest of the year

    He hits the line hard, but he rarely makes a dent in it.
    Maybe he needs to put on a bit more size, but then that would probably reduce his speed which is his biggest asset.
    Not the best defender either.

    I think he's worth moving on if possible.

    I think Fui is more effective in the collision but Terepo works hard off the ball, which we need. Fui has become a slug and only moves when the ball comes his way (in attack and defence).

    I said at the time he made his debut and I have not seen anything different to change it, but for mine Terepo is about the same quality of player as Wheller Hairaki, allbeit they are different styles of player.

    i'd prefer to see tanginoa given a start over terepo atm, terepo seems maxed out on what he can produce, whereas tanginao before his injury looked only a couple of matches away from breaking out like pauli pauli has this season

    I am with you. Not sure what BA has in mind for Tanginoa.

    From all reports he has beefed up and has been smashing it in NYC in the front-row yet BA hasn't seen fit to return him to the top grade. BA said after dropping him back to NYC earlier in the year that he (BA) made a mistake in picking him for the early rounds because Kelepi hadn't had a full off-season. Must be time to give him another run soon.

    When they were both playing lower grades I ways thought that Pauli was the better player. When Kelepi got the jump on him I was surprised. I hope they turn Kelepi into a genuine front rower. I'd risk it and release Allgood and Lussick. Even Alvaro makes a better dent than Allgood. I suspect he gets picked for his defence.

    Our team needs all the good defenders it can get.

    I agree, 4th worst defensive record in the NRL going on points against.

    Tanginoa really hasn't kicked on this year as hoped.
    Its all about 2015 now.With all the injuries this season is pretty much done.

    f**k. If we take out all the games where we have flogged a team + every other game where a team has been flogged then we are looking pretty shytehouse.

    You do realise that releasing them means paying out their contracts?
