    Anyone who doesn’t support isn’t a true fan

    Too much catch and pass, not enough draw and pass. Hindy111 could rewire a shed in the time we're giving our opposition in defence.

    I'd put as same level. Cleary being only 22 probably has more improvement left in him and capable of becoming elite. He may not ever get there.

    Unsure we need. Without Evan's Kafusi and Stone get get more minutes.

    I recall Welsh was very close but he did his ACL and we withdrew our offer. That in itself may have pis*ed him off but who knows. I think our offer at the time was reported at $500k per season.
    An absolutely brilliant return from an ACL repair. The guy is class off the field as well. Very much in the Gower mold but a significantly better player. He and Kaufusi backing up Jnr and RCG would be something else.

    I think we withdrew the offer when he injured his ACL

    The Gutho pass that went way in front of Fergo was good, Fergo should have been there, the pass was always going to be a tap on and they don't go deep.

    Just on Welch... late in 2019 we had verbally agreed to terms with him for 2020, 2021 and 2022 however before signatures could be reached, he did his knee (again). As a result of that we pulled our offer and he ended up taking up his option with the Storm. Current talk is that he is want to stay with the Scum but would be too expensive for us as a replacement for Kevans, moreso since he has become a proven starter.

    EDIT: started posting that nearly an hour ago and got distracted. Cheers Gazza and OB - didn't mean to just repost what you had already stated.

    I thought the tap on went forward. I could be wrong and even if I’m not it may not have got called. However he was too deep

    They called it a knock on because he batted it and didn't pass it.At least that is what the ref ruled on the field.

    We risk the farm on Welsh's knee or move on to RCG. We obviously made the correct call but Im a greedy pri*k. I'd like both. If we are to part company with Evans, Alvaro, Terepo, Gower and Stefano surely we can add one goodun to support whats left plus the pair or young bookends.

    Injury in the forwards is not uncommon and as far as middles go, I think at most this year we have had 3 middles out injured at the same time - Kevans, Terepo and Oregano. Which begs the question, how many middles should you have in your top 30?

    This year, we ran with 10 (Paulo, RCG, Brown, Evans, Oregon, Gower, Marata, Stefano, Terepo, and Alvaro) although I counted Marata because that's where he has been playing but didn't count Stone.

    Is 10 too many?
    Normally there will be 5 in the top 17, so it doesn't take many injuries to need all 10.

    It was perfect and Ferguson should have been paying attention.
