    Some stability in the halves should see a bit of improvement.

    It depends on whether Seibold has the guts to give Turpin the 9 and keep Boyd out of the frame.

    really?
    Im normally pretty measured in my expectations, but I think Croft is a huge signing. Not because he's the best player, but because he is the missing piece.
    I actually think this is all we need to be at least a top 4 team. As long as Milford is back at 6 and Boyd is centre, wing or left right out.
    Then with either Dearden or Turpin on the bench gaining some experience.

    Agree. Croft though while a reject from the Storm is still a proper half unlike Turpin who is a hooker doing his best to cover for half due to injuries. We would be much more dangerous in attack with Turpin at hooker, Milford back to 6 where he can just trail behind the ruck like a fullback looking for any offloads or half breaks and Croft can take over the organisation of the forwards and handle out last tackle options. Don't have a spot in my side for either Boyd or McCullough.

    Croft is definitely worth a gamble and we are short on halves anyway.

    I don't see us being contenders but we should do better than 2019.

    Trim the fat (Boyd, McCullough, Kahu) next year and get a marquee signing in the spine and we could be a threat in 2021.

    What a clusterf*#k having Kahu on our books for another year. Fingers crossed it doesn’t impede a Coates getting a run in first grade.

    On the plus side, we have lost Shibasaki to the Knights.

    True however Boyd was an absolute standout
