    Agree with what you say Oldmate and thanks for enlightening me on Hiroti.

    Ethan Lowe signed!! I think this is a great signing. Back up goal kicker and Valuable depth and experience

    Fantastic signing, straight onto the bench. Good to have a genuine experienced second rower there. Could even end up starting with Sutto coming off the bench to add spark in the last 25

    Great signing.
    Hope he can regain form and be a permanent in the 17

    Rumoured that Souths only had to fork out $120k for him with the cowboys paying the bulk of his contract.

    I just noticed our team on the web page has dropped to 28 players. Ethan Lowe makes 29. So we still have 1 spot to fill. So players like Amone and Knight have a lot riding on this weekends game.

    That makes up the 30. But Ethan Lowe still isn’t added yet. So basically all the second string forwards will be playing not to be dropped for Ethan Lowe.

    This year each team is also allowed 6 development players. I’m not sure of the eligibility criteria, but I’d say a young bloke like Amone qualifies. In past years a club had to be in injury crisis for the NRL to allow a dev. contract player to play in the NRL. This year after June 30 permission is not needed.

    We haven’t named our 6 yet. https://www.nospam47.com/au/league/...e-stars-rugby-league/4kg1cueunabuzk11bneoxify

    Ethan Lowe’s profile has been added to the Team profile page. We now have 31 players in the squad?

    Ethan Lowe eventually pushing Sam into the prop rotation is a tasty thought

    I think we’ve got far better depth in the front row and Sam could be a weapon on an edge. Would prefer Lowe or Sutton play off the bench. Interested to see how Bennett rates Britt and if he gets much game time. He actually went well at the back end of last year.

    Doesn't Lowe play on the right edge and Sutto left edge, would there be any problems for Lowe on the right?

    I'm split about the 'no-fault stand down policy'. On one hand i don't believe that banning someone who hasn't been proven guilty yet is the right thing to do (Brett Stewart is an example why) but on the other, any player in that position has more to worry about than playing footy.

    What has happened to young prop Sam Johnstone? Is not among the player profiles on the Souths website

    It’s a shame, had a few injuries last year but played some good footy. However Kye Rodwell is still on the books and he’s a star of the future. Good crop of young front rowers in Knight, Rodwell, Amone and Koalomatangi. Good mentors there in the burgesses. On a side note I would have loved to see Goseivski back at the club.
