    I don't think the Reds have ever neglected signings from the NRC. They've been one of the big players in it.

    Is Isi Australian eligible? Would impact what type of contract he could get

    I've heard a whisper he's off to WA at the end of the NRC

    That's what was reported in the news a few days ago, there are a few contracts still out there available for NRC stars

    So the talk is Mick Heenan is taking over the reins for this season. Has this been confirmed anywhere? It's interesting as he's never done a lot of stuff outside of UQ Prems. I guess as the coach of the dominant team for a while it's great he's stepping up.

    yeah, apparently he put his hat in the ring for the Force job last year and apparently there has been some Super Rugby interest SOMEWHERE for next year.

    Nothing confirmed for NRC, but I look forward to seeing how he goes.
    Happy to Chat likes this.

    Heard the same thing Reg. Maybe he thought NRC experience would help in a Super role.

    Haha, I feel in the rugby community this is how a lot of rumours tee off.

    I wonder what has changed because I swear he's been offered NRC roles before but turned them down. Apparently was happy with his job and just coaching UQ. Who knows

    No I was told on the weekend and haven't seen you since. I got it from a pretty good source so I'd be inclined to believe it.

    Salesi Manu. 4 years ago I thought that bloke was going to be a Wallaby. I have only seen Bond play once this season and he wasnt there. How has he been going?

    Kerevi would also be a Wallaby Allocation, surely?

    agreed. I'm not sure if I've seen his name either.

    There's a very strong WA touch to these sides.

    He's been in Italy then Japan - he was a monster when i used to watched him for Force (Manu)

    Yeah the season he had in the NPC he ripped it up. Hopefully he goes well and a Super team pick him up.

    hopefully! Tahs said they will need a prop, but that will probably happen through a team folding, so hopefully we can find space. He would be better hten Vanzati imo for example.

    Manu is more a THP though right?

    Vanzati (who I think has plenty of potential) is LHP.

    I thought I recalled him playing in #1 for Force. Perhaps it's both. Perhaps I'm just wrong. I just liked the cut of his jib and remember being disappointed when he left because he was scummaging properly and was a weapon ball in hand

    Assuming Hunt and Kerevi won't be included due to Wallabies call-up, and i think players like De Guingand and King need to be rewarded for their QPR form:

    3. Talakai
    4. Douglas
    5. Tui

    7. De Guingand
    8. King
    9. Frisby
    10. Cooper
    11. Fidow
    12. Taefu
    13. Maranta
    14. Kuridrani
    15. Laloifi

    16. Manu
    17. Fotuaika
    18. Ma'afu
    19. Richards
