    If Panthera are bored, there’s always a groin injury somewhere to discuss.

    Back to rumours are we still chasing a prop or happy with our roster.the NRL have helped so there is no extra rush with the date for needing 30 pushed back

    Not at this moment. It becomes urgent if we get injuries up front or the new rules don't make teams go smaller

    I tend to think we probably are still exploring opportunities, and will continue to do so.

    Whether we actually sign someone, time will tell.

    We have already promoted three so you would have to think there will be a signing.

    I really liked what I saw of J’Maine Hopgood in the Mounties trial and again on the weekend. He looked like the sort of player who could make the step up to NRL.

    I loved what I saw, but I think he needs significant reserve grade time before he’s ready to be a regular NRL player. Very promising start though.

    Prop is the one position I have always felt experience shines through.
    The best ones tend to develop a bit later and I have always noticed that the young ones develop quicker when there is a older stand out amongst the group. Tamou has been an obvious example of it, Civoniceva is another.
    I think we need one more good older player in reserve grade to help the rest progress.

    What sort of prop we going to get, if Tetevano was on around $300-$350k? Our budget must be around $250k or less??

    $250k can get us a $500-$600k prop from Nov.

    Given we are almost 6 months in by the time we get one. That knocks the price right down and will get a handy prop with that
