    See how he goes with this one

    Even then, why move for the same money. He was on the paper saying his kid has just started school so he's seeing out his deal

    I didn't realise he was so big (191cm and 100kg)... Will be interested to see who gets the nod out of him and Lee for that vacant wing spot.

    We seem to be over supplied with centres and wingers now, but we only have Watson for fullback. If he is needed in the halves or is injured, we'll have to use Ross or Lee at fullback, assuming Hoy won't be ready next year.

    Just looking at Hunt's stats, they were very ordinary last year.
    65% tackle efficiency and averaged 70m.

    Think one of the last 3 players signed will be cover for FB, Kurt Mann possibly.

    Hunt is a nobody off the street, he won't be playing firsts unless we get smashed with injuries hopefully.

    His stats this year were somewhat better. About 85m per game and about 90% tackle efficiency. Still a good pickup for depth. The Club was smart in waiting to see what the Bunnies were doing with him and once it became clear that he was not being offered another deal, we picked up presumably for not much coin.

    We've got a fella Kalyn Ponga, might be worth a try back there.
    But in all seriousness Lino essentially becomes our depth fullback by allowing Ponga to play at 1. If we have injuries in the halves and at fullback then we are in trouble

    If we have injuries at half and fullback then we are in trouble the same as most clubs.

    IF our spine stays healthy and is on field for 75% of the season then we are looking good.

    We did well with only 18% full main spine on filed rate this year

    With Klemmer we certainly can.

    All comes down to whether we can plug the leaky defence. We have plenty of strike power and if we were not spending soo much time coming out of our own end and defending, we could put that to good use.

    Just come across some big hits from 2017. Geez hymel hit Moga with a great shot on the reel. He was playing centre that day. Be interesting too see where he ends up.
