Part of me that thinks Konrad won’t be here having Edwards, Sutcliffe, Sutcliffe, Newman and Broadbent at the club.

Great that you rate him so highly. What would you say are his cheif strengths, and do you think he could handle a bit of first team rugby here and there in the same way Gannon is getting some at the moment?

Looks to have a lot of pace. I know he's only young but he looks a liitle too light and small for backrow. How tall is he?

Dont think size will be an issue, he'l be at least the size of the Batemans, Stevie Wards, James Bentleys imo...And Your right, he is easily fast enough and explosive enough to play Centre, either or really, but as of right now, i like him as a backrow.

Id say his strengths are that he's a dynamic athlete, runs very good lines, excellent offload and has good rugby intelligence... always around the ball.

Yeah I think he could handle a few minutes here and there at first team level.

Yeah same I’ve rated Levi very highly, he has an all-round game.

Suspect the club feel they need more cover at centre than back row for the foreseeable but I also like him in the back row. He can link other players in as well as finish and can also defend.

I need to get to some games this year (family and work permitting) feel so out of touch with those coming through having been in the middle of it all for so many years. Sounds like there’s some talent to back up those making the step up now, longing for a pivot to make the break.

Halves and 9s are trouble areas for all teams at that level Seth.

Yeah its certainly an issue that persists. From my experience I genuinely think theres an issue with over coaching and stifling natural ability for those positions. A great deal is very prescriptive and not very player centred, this sounds odd out of context but I'm not a fan of coaching points being the start point for developing players, it's not my method anyway.
