    I don't know if we have enough forwards or not but i know im encouraged by dean on the lookout for more creative halves.
    Obviously him looking at this Newcastle kid Cogger kinda tells me he sees deficiencies in what we have.
    Maybe it's a case of our current talent to partner foran is not ready yet for that step up. Or we're one injury away from chaos again.
    We honestly haven't been lucky with been up to speed like most clubs with good young halves. Hopefully that changes next year.

    I think you are right some young blood with a lot of potential but probably still 12 months off being the type off forwards that give you real impact off the bench.
    For me a big concern is how slow some of our guys are at getting up to play the ball. In the last few seasons we have been fortunate to have Kasiano and Pritchard and graham to get us moving with fast play-the-balls.

    We do need real quick ruck to give Foran space for options, especially running straight at the line. Woods has one of the fastest play the balls in the game so hope it can rub off.

    I think you have it just about right for the starting pack. Add Taulau to the bench.

    It has proven true over time.. he also had another one that was along the lines of:

    'give me a world class prop and world class halfback, & il give you a premiership'

    Obviously the game has changed abit, since then especially with importance of hookers, fullbacks and all the wrestling, but alot of sense there especially for the game in his time

    Our pack will look interesting during the rep period. We desperately need some players on the fringe to have a break out year.
