CFS out, big loss on attack.. his ability to break the first tackle and beat the man are up there with the best in 2019.

The Reds seriously need to look at getting the sunwolves Hayden Parker next season


He will be qualified for Japan next season won't he?
As a kiwi kid, I think his two options are either to return back to New Zealand to chase the All Black dream, or stay in Japan on big dollars and represent the Cherry Blossoms.

I think the Reds are best backing their stocks on Hegarty, Stewart and Lucas. However if they lose Kerevi on top of Paia'aua, they will definitely be on the market for another inside centre for 2020.

If the reds lose Kerevi, the team will be the worst it's ever been

Thorn no better than Graham or Stiles. Needs to go.

I don't know what any of those coaches can do with this roster. Reds have some talent, but I really don't think they're playing under the standard. If you ranked the four Aus teams on paper, I think they're all performing roughly how they should be.

The problem is that our coaches since Link have one game plan for the season, not for each opponent.

This of course is caused by not having players able to change each week.

Absolutely, take plan A into each game and if plan A isn’t working, keep going with plan A.......

Most would give their favourite schoolboy team a hard time for not adapting to what is in front of them.

With all these players that are being mentioned as leaving, does that mean that next year will be a "rebuilding" year?

Tupou is signed for a few years.
Timu is off contract, looking at all offers.
LSL is at risk of returning to NSW for family reasons, Reds have treated and managed him very well since the Robina incident last year.

Rumours are rumours, they happen every year often driven by managers leaked to reporters to drive up the value of their players contract.

Tahs chasing Lukhan no surprise, but I wonder where Tupou would want to go if those rumours are true? Tahs to replace Kepu? Or overseas for BIG money, considering Alaalatoa is getting the lions share of THP cash in Aus.
