    Assuming Mennings, Stone and Davies are in, plus probably pumping up Parry and maybe Stefano, we still need another 4 merkins before start of next season (I can’t remember if it’s 28 or 29 needed by round 1). Who the f**k is going to be available?

    Hey Pou,

    With Niukore playing almost exclusively in the middle in 2019 why do you think he will be an edge forward in 2020/2021?

    When I list them as an edge forward it just means they can play there, but can't play enough positions to be considered a utility.

    Anyway I'd say Niukore might play some edge forward next year, at least as a backup. He started nearly half his games this year, and every one of those he wore jersey 11 or 12. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't recruit a top 17 edge forward for next year, instead using Niukore or Takairangi.

    I reckon we have 3 edge forwards in our sights. The only way we use Taka and/or Niukore instead of recruiting is...
