    By geez there some talent about isn't there? Like the look of the Canes, but may need a lock or 2 to stand up, but by Geez that is a bloody good looking backline! Mind you Cruasaders look a complete outfit again, and Blues look fairly full of talent!

    ^^^^^^^ KiwiM begs to somewhat differ re: Bloos:

    Gotta say I'm stunned they didn't sign Olmstead & can only assume they'd filled their lock roster pre-M10 (a silly thing to do, really).

    Re: CruSadists you've gotta remember it's RWC next year so Whitelock will probably miss the first month, other "main group" AB will have their minutes managed & they've more AB than most esp in the forwards where player workloads will be managed more closely than in the backs.

    Think perhaps Olmstead could of missed out because they signed most of their players halfway through the M10 cup, and he really came on big at end of season. Like you WOB I think someone missed the bus as noone has picked him up!
