    From the man himself back in 2017. Always appreciated the "no bullshit" personality he seemed to have, both in words and actions.

    Still only 27 too Jeez.

    Rebels sniffing around Powell for next year with White surely taking over the reigns at the Brums

    I feel like there's a fair few Brumbies we can all snaffle. Their depth is great. Let Slipper truly enjoy the party capital before retiring.

    With Orr, Eloff and Gibbon there is enough depth there. Orr has been superb since getting the starting spot, was close to best on field last week

    Would be a good pickup. Better than having two non Australia qualified players.

    Yes, but... so far Gibbon is the only prop signed past this season. It would be awesome if we could get all of them on new contracts, not sure how likely that will be though.

    Hopefully Tuttle can stay fit and challenge for the 9 Jersey as well

    As discussed on other threads, I think it's a COVID cash-up, given the pay cuts and uncertainity for next year's comp. Think Andrew will be back.

    He might regret it as far as wallaby aspirations go, with Ramm and Ralston emerging as prospects and Vunivalu set to come over next year, a season away may see him fall right out of the pecking order and struggle to make his way back in.

    To be fair he has struggled since the covid resumption

    Yeh, I've noticed his post covid game hasn't been at the standard pre-covid, e.g. Highlanders game. Not sure what's gone on; injury, form, or something else. Could explain why he's jetting over to Japan.

    Just hope he's OK.

    The Australian reporting that Uelese and Fa’amasuili are both looking like they will sign new deals with the club.

    Fantastic news. So glad they're staying in Melbourne, they actually put the Melbourne in Melbourne Rebels.

    Uelese, Fa'amasuili, Leota and Hosea - all under 23 - that's great backbone :)

    On another note - who here would like like to see Pone as an 8 - in the Billy Vunipola model?

    Why take away his point of difference to other tight heads?

    Powell to Rebels makes perfect sense as fines more then adequate back up for white and Powell I would see starting 9 as rebels given hearing Louwrens and Lomani moving on - he needs starting berth to push white, Gordon and Tate for wallaby honours. Been impressed with Powell this season, actually Gordon, Tate and Prior all been good value.
