    2021 is still a long way to go, but just for "arguments" sake, lets skip to it for a moment and lock in what we know.

    I'm over talking about 2021. 2020 hasn't even started yet.. Our squad might have weaknesses but they proved they can be competitive and win games last season and that we have talent in certain positions.

    Hopefully players are picked on merit and form and not for any other reason.

    I hope Wakeham, Averillo, Harper, Ogden etc are all given plenty of opportunities because they are talented and if they take their chances then that's several less players that we need to recruit.

    Dunno about 2021 as we have some young centres in Averillo and Schoupp that look good along with Harper. We have plenty of young halves. I think we still need a big strong winger and some good front rowers and maybe an upgrade at hooker if JMK can't lift his game.

    Agree, heard good things about Schoupp when we signed him, but after seeing his training photo the kid is 98kgs and looks to hold it very well, will be interesting to see how he goes

    One of the finest posts I've ever seen.
    Which one of these 'marquees' gets paid $1m+? (Monopoly money of course)...

    I have to agree with everyone who's said they're over dreaming of the 2021 side. We've got no input into how it will come together. Unless we can directly influence a potential recruitment target we're not important to the process of assembling the team.
