So Ben Peni has our final spot in the top 30?

That's a pretty big decision isn't it? Considering we have the Kepus and Ale in our prop rotation, I would have thought the last thing we would look at is another inexperienced prop.

Surely this means that Webbys keen to use the Kepu boys a decent amount this season?

No he is definetly not in the top 30, nsw cup contract probably.

It's been mentioned before that Ben Murdoch-Masila bought a house in Redcliffe. I know that doesn't mean he has to live there but say he did want to then I can imagine a world where a transfer to the Dolphins could end up benefiting all parties.

The Dolphins have 5 remaining roster spaces and could maybe use a good impact back rower. With Warriors unlikely to extend him beyond this year they probably wouldn't need to offer a risky long-term contract.

As for the Warriors, with our back row depth the only reason I could see for wanting to hang on to him would be because we are just that desperate for a player who can do a job at prop if need be. In that case they might say they will release him to the Dolphins if we can sign a decent prop.

This is all HIGHLY speculative of course, but hey... It's the off season, I am allowed to dream.

He’s also training in brisbane, but everyone else is in nz

January… but I hope he just stays there lol
Thought I saw an article that our guys that played international could be back sooner due to taking a break pre world cup with Niukore being the latest in Jan/Feb? We didn't have too many playing international level though so shouldn't have much impact either way and the players that did will hopefully come back better too.

He’d be suspended 3/4 of the year if he came here
Most likely, but it’s not him I hope we get. Was looking at another forum the other day and the poster said there were some teams with about 7 ores in the fire regarding recruitment. Didn’t say we were one of them but with dragons fans saying Kerr is in their top 30 for next season I think we might also have a few ores in the fire and seeing what comes of it.
