    From what I understand; the guy is actually pretty good. Albeit, he might be a touch softer on them poor darlings.

    Short answer no. We only have one space available and they are not likely to fill it before next year.

    Don't we have a shit load of money available though. And we've had a few players from the playing group leave, so I thought we'd have a few more spots freed up

    I think a couple of development players have been upgraded.

    If we were looking to start developing them really young, theres a giant 11 year old in Australia who cant get a gig. Might be worth looking into.

    We have no real history of developing young players since Ackland left.

    if he’s that huge he’s unlikely to end up much good, seriously massive units don’t have the stamina or mobility for the modern game.

    They seem to be able to eck out a few good years (I'm thinking Learoyd-Lahrs, Shannan Boyd, Sam Kasiano, Nelson Asofa). Maybe that's the exception tho?

    I reckon there’s more space for players but it’s a case of nobody wanting to come.

    When even Kurt capewell rejects u, that tells u something.

    There weren't too many top flight players available for 2020 that I would have been happy with.
    Hopefully were happy to bide our time and with a bit of coin behind us at the end of nek year and not too many upgrades on the cards, hopefully we have a bit of a plan about what we're looking for

    Word is one of your ex-players is in a spot of bother with the law.
