All the years we said it's our year. This one is definitely not. That said, it's a long season. It just needs for attacking combos to start forming suddenly, then we could take off.
The 2002/2003 team developed that way. A couple of big young forwards (Ali Lauitiiti, Seuseu) showed out in the previous season. Next season Logan Swann and Faumuina, capped by Mark Tookey and Villasanti were added. Kev Campion. It all starts somewhere.
I'm calling it now. I've seen enough of Katoa and Jamayne Tounua-Brown to think that they will be the foundation of the next 3 seasons rebuild. They've got the size and willingness. Add Ben Murdoch-Masila, Afoa, Leeson Ah-Mau, even Burr and we're getting size and talent. I think we're building nicely. Come 2023 we're looking good.
I'm happy to play the long game. The culture is better. We have a clear development path now. Just keep resigning the squad and adding big boys.
just had a thought when does the new rule on travel take affect. Because if the boys fly home tonight do they have to self isolate? if so the season is really gone. By the time they could move to Aus they would have missed a game and that assumes that they wont have to self isolate here in Aus on their return
