    Isn't Hegarty also rumoured to be leaving?

    Didn't Hegarty just sign for another year?

    I know it is heavily rumoured, but has Kerevi’s departure definitely been confirmed?

    Edit: Yes, I am desperately hoping he has a change of heart and hasn’t actually signed

    Won’t let me access it Reg.

    But I assume it isn’t good news.

    in this order
    McDermott
    Combo of 2 from 3 Hookers (BPA, Mafi, Ma’ufu)
    Stewart
    CFS
    Wright
    Hoopert
    Gordon
    ASY


    That would be my priority list of who to try to retain.

    I’m not sold on Hegarty long term. Think Thorn didn’t want Cooper, was happy to get Hegarty but will look elsewhere in 2020.. If he comes back. So be it. His good but not fantastic!

    Adam Korczyk has got to go. It’s a real shame he is wasting a spot at the Reds when there’s more worthy players slugging it out in Qld Premier Rugby

    Hegarty is great. I’d hate to lose him.

    So you would be happy to let him go? He's not a priority to you?

    He is young, he is versatile but he probably would not feature in my Reds 23 (that’s a fully healthy red squad mind you)

    The Reds are going thru a major injury crisis with outside backs and Lucas has been forced into the spotlight. I just recall young Lucas being a NRC qld country substitution and not an actual starting XV player. That may change this year with the post World Cup departures.

    The fact that the Warratahs were willing to part with him in the Karmichael swap had me skeptical. He has exceeded my expectations but I’d like to upgrade at the position.

    I hear what you are saying but I think you have your wires crossed. I think you will find that it was his brother Tom in the Qld Country line up. He came back from Aussie7's. I'll check up on this. I have heard young Isaac was player of the tournament in the U20's here on the Gold Coast. I watched 2 games and he went very well

    Isaac starred for Brisbane City in the URC (the U19 NRC) and didn't play NRC.

    Tom Lucas played, occasionally, for QLD Country in the NRC

    What’s Tom Lucas doing these days? Wasn’t he the 7s player who wanted to try 15s? did he go back to 7s???
