    So who should the Tahs be targeting for next year?

    I wouldn't mind seeing if the Orr brothers are available and maybe Rahboni Warren-Vosayaco from the sunwolves if available.

    yes please. Hooper, Vosayaco, Dempsey would be a quality backrow.

    Is it me, or does the section about the Waratahs sound familiar?

    Vosayaco I believe will be in the Japanese WC squad. Ben Gunter however, has failed what Japan believed was his residency rules qualification. Apparently he’s been ruled to have spent considerable time away from Japanese rugby in his time. Could really open the door for someone.

    Oh and the paper saying Simmons has been offered and most likely staying for another 2 years

    So apparently Simmons is staying 2 more years and Skeleton is going to Rebels.

    Skeleton would have been nice.

    So who are the Tahs looking at??

    Answers pretty easy to replace the 5 guys highlighted in the article, just do what they did before. Get a hard running/evasive outside back or No 8 from league, get a tight forward from South Africa, or get a hooker good enough to play for the Wallabies before a game of Super rugby!

    Problem is the Tahs have a coach who disagrees with logic in relation to forwards

    Do the Rebels still have an unlimited salary cap? Serious question.

    Interesting, if that's so, I hope the Tahs go hell for leather after Gunter. The Reds would have to be in the market for him though given his schooling connection to Brisbane.

    Reg, honest you'd just scrap the bloke? AAC has been solid.

    I think he has been poor most of the season. A couple of good performances. If that equates to solid, then yeah. That's fine. But no way do I think he has done "very well"

    Haha! Hell I wasn't looking for a biff and I certainly didn't expect to be talking this one through with another Qld-er.

    OK. I have never liked this bloke. Ever. Really skeptical at his return. But I think he has done well. I'll admit "very" well to being emotive but I'll stick with "well". He certainly surprised me.

    We (Reds) should be hanging onto Higgers. These guys should be open to AAC. Not joking, think the guy deserves respect here and should be thought of highly - in terms of his current performance.

    Lock him in Waratahs.

    The Tahs should only re-sign AAC if the price is right. He can't be amongst our highest paid players otherwise it is a waste of money.

    I think he has a place in the squad but it is a moneyball proposition. He's not consistently test quality anymore and that is essentially what you have to strive for.

    Super Rugby is such a tough competition. You can't just settle for a player that might be middle of the road or worse in their position relative to the other teams.
