Yeah, most likely won't, Moylan and Hynes combo set for next two seasons. Can't see that combination going all the way, still contenders, but fall short. Would prefer going for a big money half than if we were going for a big money Prop, back rower or centre though, this also covers 2024 and beyond, Moylan might be done after 2024 and you never know Hynes could go for a bigger offer else where. Could be left with less experienced halves

I don't see Hynes cutting & running on Fitz for more money unless something sours & we offer a poor deal.

If we went for another 5-8, has to be a proper 5-8 or someone that can game manage or be the dominant half, like Burton, Wighton or Munster, would take alot off pressure off Hynes at 7. Means Moylan has to go, maybe to left centre.

I like Moyza, prefer to get a proper 7 first, and have Hynes at fullback, that's a strong spine with experience if we got a Hunt or Moses at 7. Hynes would be free to roam more, sharper play making skills after playing half back, more experience, confidence and leadership at the back than the younger fullbacks we have.
Moylan to centre? That's the craziest thing I've heard in a long time.

People thought you couldn’t win a grand final with Chad Townsend up until last season and look how close they are.
And that was despite him having done it before.

Prefered him at 7 over Johnson, and would've kept him and let Moylan go

Just giving an example, if you were to sign an experienced 6, Moylan doesnt fit 2024, unless you re-invent him, he's passed playing fullback and I doubt they'll use a back for utility after the Trindall experiment.

I reckon Trindall starts with Hynes next year
As long as Hynes is at 6, Tricky first reciever, help with game management, especially kicking, take that weight off Hynes and will also make Hynes settle down a bit more instead of trying to do too much every play or when he gets the ball

not sure how you came to that conclusion

I can’t see how I could come to any other conclusion. You said we bombed out of the finals due to Moylan’s performances and he couldn’t be guaranteed a spot next year.

You could say the same for half a dozen other players.
