we will chase a big named prop for 2023 using fifita’s money.
More than 10 letters in the surname you reckon?
Name must have a hyphen in it too.

One of these 3?

No wonder Rabs is contemplating retirement

Maybe he forgot that he's retiring.

Maybe he retired but forgot, and kept turning up and no one had the heart to tell him.

had alot more spring in his step tonight, seems refreshed. far less lethargic, more urgency and haste

most post contact metres of any forward and he was played from the bench, 2nd most PCM in the team behind Ika

missed a few tackles, so did everyone

he was good, better than I was expecting . well done Aiden, keep it up

I thought Tolman was pretty good for us on Friday. I just don't think he is the guy to give the ball to when we are close to the try line though. Would prefer one of the power forwards like Hunt, Uele or Talakai to have the pill in their hands charging full steam.

He was good at his role last Friday but a similar style to Finucane on the field so we need something different to break the line & hoping Williams can provide that line breaking punch when he is ready to return together with McInnes also being there. Both Hunt & Talakai need to improve on last week's effort .

One of his carries close to the line he almost half broke through and took some stopping by about 3 tacklers. He seems rejuvenated but agree he is prob not forward we want to be going to for a crash play too often or relying on to get his nose through the line. Bonus if he gives us that on occasion.

While considered depth in pre-season I am happy for him to stay in the team on Fridays performance. Who misses out is the tough thing - Talakai perhaps who is prob the only forward that hasn't impressed me thus far in 2022, though limited opportunity

Maybe playing Tolman from the bench isn't such a terrible idea if it gives Dale a breather and helps keep things tight in the middle while he is off but I am not against starting him alongside Dale either if it helps us stay in the contest early and striking back as the opposition tires.

Yeah - I think this is the idea. Looking at the minutes they got, seems Fitz has Hunt at the bottom of the list.

I think Talakai has to be there even if he hasn't impressed much. You need someone on the bench to play second row if you lose a guy.

3 games to go till he joins the 300 gamers club. Well deserved IMO. Been such a solid/consistent player his whole career.
