    Just telling you the mail I have. Agree that bringing Muirhead and Banks home would be a better outcome for you, but you missed the boat there I think

    Any word on hookers for 2020? Would be great to re-sign both Mafi and BPA.

    Props won't be an issue. Hopefully Hoopert re-signs, he's one for the (pretty near) future.

    Locks are fine, great depth.

    It seems like an annual certainty, but Reds will be jettisoning some very exceptional young backrowers this season. Gotta play the game of who you think will develop least. Korczyk should be moving on. Losing Timu, Higginbotham and Korczyk should be enough to keep the rest of the talent.

    Surely one of McDermott or Tuttle won't re-sign wit Sorovi already staying. Shame to lose either of them.

    For the backs I have no idea. I've enjoyed the glimpses of McGahan and my opinion of Hegarty has really improved. But I think my expectations of the Reds is just so average and middling that if a player isn't half bad I'm happy with them. Really our standards should be higher and can't just build a backline around Petaia like we've seen with Kerevi. Need one of the surplus backs from the Rebels I think.

    Reds should have a bit of money for a big signing or two no? All leaving players, especially Kerevi, would have been expensive and the rest of the team has great potential but aside from a few don't command big dollar. Also, Khunt, Slipper & Quade all come off the pay next year too.

    Could O'Connor fill a Kerevi sized gap in the backline next year?

    Brad Thorn would want nothing to do with James O’Connor if he wanted nothing to do with Quade Cooper

    Do the Reds really need a reserve Premiership lock, and do they especially really need to spend big money to get him?

    His not the reserve premiership lock his been starting, but the rest of your post is true, the Reds don't need him, they should work on keeping the bunch they have.

    He's been starting because of injury to flanker Michael Rhodes. Itoje moves to 6 to cover that and Kruis is the other starting lock

    Full strength Saracens has Big Willy on the bench

    The only way we should go after him is if LSL does in fact want to return to NSW. Otherwise, Lock is definitely not an area we should be spending money at considering the guys in that role have probably been the best in the squad.

    Well that's a solid replacement for Sefa Naiavalu, he brings some maturity to the Reds backline as well, its a fairly sensible signing

    Speight and Sefa on either side. Just need to attack to get the ball out to them.

    Edit - Nevermind.

    Sefa is going to Stade Francais next year.
