Great minds think alike - that is very similar to the team i would select with only a couple of changes. I would retain Moon as i think he has the potential to develop into an uber centre. Huge question marks over Tate post-injury. Seymour in for John to play halfback, Johnson to 5/8th in an ad-lib Benji Marshall style role.

What i like about your picks: you got rid of Lilyman, Henderson, Royal, and Ropo.

Tuimavave is on the outer though and i cant see him here next year. I would also like to see room for Lewis Brown. If Ta'ai was played at bench prop instead of Evarn you could see Big Ben freed up to unleash on the fringes, then have Brown as your bench SR.

A fairly good squad, but there are a few things wrong. Taylor is already in the top team, and Sione Lousi has already been promoted. Leeson Ah Mau is gone, no matter how dearly I wish we had kept him. I don't see the point in signing Kidwell. Also, that's 38-39 players, don't want to count again aha, and a squad is usually 33-35.

If we sign David Kidwell, i'm going to piss in Cleary/Scurrah/Hart's letterboxes. He is the LAST player we could possibly need for next year.

i have a feeling we will let kemp go to the doggies , as we have a couple of classy local wingers , ie billy tupou and "Thomas ah van " , available next year.

we could always try the raging bull tonga likkiliki on the wing ?????...
dam hows that for a wing combo "the bull "and "the beast" ...hahaha

i'm sure i heard during the u20s game with kimmorley saying that ah mau is staying at the club..

You may well have, but the official word is that he's going. I genuinely wish, though, that the U20s commentator was right and the club was wrong. :(

does anyone know where roman hifo is now

Playing second row for the Papakura Fox side.

Eddie's at Norths Devils in Brisbane playing QLD Cup but has been out injured for a while. The Devils haven't been going too well without him.

Aaron's playing Vulcans and Otahuhu Fox. Should see more Vulcans games now that Fein's gone to the Dragons. He's on a part time contract to the Warriors I think.

we should sign kidwell, keep jones, bring wiki out of retirement, chase barrets signiture and try and get a whole team of over thirtys, my point being that kidwell is old, even though i like him i would poo if we signed him.

Players They Should Sign

Todd Carney
Nigel Plum
David Kidwell

I've highlighted the ones I'd like to see at the club next year. Carney, Plum, Kidwell offer nothing. Carney has a good game, poor attitude, he's beyond repair. Plum is more of the same, a great defender not much else, Kidwell is just an over the hill hack. George Vuna and Nafe Seluini also have the goods.

Just out of curiosity, what has Brown done to get dropped, and what has Poching done to warrant a starting spot?
