if it's not broke
Given one of our starting edge forwards has signed elsewhere next year and we have no replacements coming in I'd say at this stage it is broke. Looking at our contracted roster for 2023 the best edge forward options seem to be Lane and Matterson, unless Hopgood can play on an edge. As for Hopgood, he is far Toogood for reserve grade. I'd be surprised if he isn't in our top 17, if not starting in the back row.

Perham - West Tigers bound to be with his mate Ice?

So we have 25 in the Squad for 2023 already.

probably 24 as I think nath brown will go.

If the cap increases as rumoured we should have some decent cash to fill 3-4 positions before next season
