Think Longstaff was a breath of fresh air, as we had a team that couldn’t be bothered to make an effort. We weren’t used to that desire and enthusiasm.

Wouldn’t mind seeing him back at some point, but we need a bit of size in the back row first.

No more players according to HDM. We couldn't work out a deal to get Wallace

Yep. I asked Dan Tomlinson this morning about Wallace and he said no further recruitment. TS happy to go with what he's got.

Fingers crossed we don't get any serious injuries to Lane or Savelio next season

Indeed, we look very weak in the 2nd row and lack any real size. Possibly Sao &/or Griff to 2nd row as an option?

At least the recruitment we have done is very good, and the coaching set up is a huge improvement from previous years. Will be an opportunity for the younger players as well.

We can build on that, and reshape the squad a lot more next year.

Key area now is to start now retention for 2024, we have a lot of players OOC and I have no doubt that Radford will be looking at our players particularly Sao, not everyone but him Satae, Fash and Brown are key IMO.

Plenty more wiggle room next season
I expect we'll see an upgrade from what we get rid of.

I hope so, but we should look to re-sign Sao as soon as we can, doubtless Cas will be in his options next year and he, for me is a superb , often under appreciated player. I'd rather not lose any of our overseas props, given that evans showed some improvement as the season wore on, but Sao would be a bigger loss than him or Satae, if that was the scenario we faced.

We will , hopefully see a few of the younger players develop under Smith, which could mean that we go for some real quality in the positions we are lacking a bit, by releasing some high earners who are coming to their end with us next year.

Think some NRL clubs might be looking at Sao for 2024
