We have a good line of young backs coming through our pathways program but not so many forwards - especially props. Given that props don't really come of age until they are in their mid 20s, it would be very surprising if Griffin was relying on solving our problems in the forwards from within our ranks. A minimum of two first grade experienced props and a 'like for like'replacement of Frizell is the minimum recruitment required in order to bring our forwards up to scratch. Of our current players, Vaughan, McInnes, T Sims and De Belin are the only forwards that can provide a competitive edge right now. Kerr, Blacker, Lawrie and Ford all need a lot of work if we intend bring them up to standard I think we have reasonable depth in the halves and so the only position in the backline I feel needs attention is fullback. We do have depth for the fullback position however, the candidates (Ramsey and Schiller) are currently very inexperienced. It will be up to Griffin to make that judgement.
