    Surely we can get the Raiders or Broncos to chip in for them. We've helped them out by taking plenty of their duds over the years...

    A high-performance centre is a must for this club. They also need to move on from the AFL coach leading the unit.

    Don't see why it's too late- players learn all sorts of skills at all ages. In Rugby in particular, there are technical specialist coaches who work with front rowers, hookers etc and these are ongoing sessions working on scrummaging technique etc even at elite Wallaby level.

    The issues I have with Dufty, Field and Sailor are their body types which are just not right for modern back three positions. Meanwhile, the rumours are that Norman got panned in Gus 'review. so we need to be cultivating some young talent for the 5/8 role as the club may decide he is a better full-back.

    Unfortunately our recruitment of late has not been earth shattering and recruiting a ‘good’ fullback and winger might be easier said than done. Look at our buys in the backs this year.
