    Out of the 4 forwards that we had been linked with we got the one we least needed...
    He's a knock about prop when we need a beast.

    I'm not joining them but you can't say glasby is a far better prop when that is just not the case. Yeah he might tighten up our d through the guts but he is no aggressive metre eater. Which is what we need right now imo

    Fair to say top line props along with quality halves are the most rare players on the market these days?

    I haven't really formed an opinion on all the new middle forwards we recruited for under 20s this year, but we have some big units and even in the one game we lost I thought we won the forward battle. At least 2 of them look very similar to Pasami Saulo in size and impact. It's a pity there are no under 20s stats to look at this year.
    The most impressive so far is a second rower from Queensland named Beau Fermor who looks like a young Fitz without the brain snaps.

    Can score a try like also, think he's our leading try scorer in flegg? Maybe in the whole grade?? 6 or 7 tries thus far in 10 games.
    Solid boy to.

    8 tries in 8 games for Fermor.
    Several of them great individual efforts, running 50 or more metres after stepping past defenders.

    Turn him into a centre while he is still young and not into building up to much body wise, gain strength but loose speed, we are in need of more strength in centres than most places.

    He's not a meter eater and never will be, need the twins to lift big time or we are up chit creek in the middle

    If the twins both played to their potential we wouldn't have to be concerned by front row signing as we would be set. Hopefully Dsaf can clean up his handling errors, keep up his meters, and his bro when he returns can follow his lead.
