    Everyone speaks of Staines and Burton but Naden, Crichton and Luai are more important to re-sign

    Id argue Burton higher than Naden and I love the bloke. The club is in such a great position

    Naden is in the top 17. Burton potentially is but not knowing lower grade situation it is hard to put him over a starter.

    Mansour won't get re-signed so that opens up a spot for Staines. I'd move the gun SG Ball FB to be centre especially if Naden goes

    Me too. I am a Naden fan but still think Burton could be something special.

    So is Burton. Rumour has it that Crichton, and Luai, have already signed, just working on the finer points.

    Capewell played in the middle against the Cows and Martin stayed on the edge. And Capewell is looking huge.

    Burton is being turned into a backrower. So he is in the plans but just likely isn't next year.

    There is no centre ready should Naden leave

    Martin is a natural middle though. I think he goes there at some stage just when is the question

    Burton's future is sorted as a backrower. That is a long process. Centre is a weakness going forward

    I would like to see him have a go at centre. He is big, fast and certainly in the limited opportunities he has had doesn't appear to be a bad defender.

    I guess it is due to his growth. They are best to judge it but I have always thought he would be a good centre.

    The SG Ball side for this year was stacked. Hopefully they come back next season and can assess them further

    There is no Canterbury Cup team it likely won't exist next year too

    Really, franklin, I had no idea. Do not patronize me, as I am fully aware of that fact.

    ^You said this^

    ^Then this^

    Probably being a bit unfair on Franklin there.

    tha

    Because it was obvious that the Canterbury has been suspended this year, and possibly next year too.

    So how can we call up players that don't exist then?
