I am scratching my head over signing of Wilson .
The prop spot looks to be filled by young Bond prop Gavin Luka
How do they justify that? Gavin hasn't played many games (if any) in the past 18 months since QLD 20s in 2017. He did not feature all this year throughout club and NRC. Surely Richie Asiata is ahead of him in the pecking order?
John Smit going back a little.Really impressed seeing Asata play a bit of hooker this year for country.
Which brings me to the point. does anybody know of any super rugby or international players who can play hooker/prop.
Can’t recall any in my time but I know it does happen in clubland.
Didn't Tatafu Polota-Nau start out as a prop? I have been wrong before
Did you watch much club rugby by any chance?
Harry Wilson was one of the standouts in the comp. he also has featured for u20 setup.
I’m amazed someone would be perplex by the signing. 2 things coaches can’t teach & that is height & speed. Harry has height.
. But I feel there have been some encouraging signs out of Ballymore this last three months.
I agree 100% with everything you've said here Reg. On paper, everything is looking positive and should point towards us going upwards.
From a personal perspective, I'm still absolutely filthy on how we got here. We all saw it and knew exactly what was going to happen with the introduction of Graham and then again with Tony. When it comes to the handling of Nick Stiles, we saw that he was lumped with two AC's that couldn't cut the mustard, but he wasn't afforded the same luxury as Thorn with more experienced and successful AC's being brought in.
From an outsiders perspective, the servants to Queensland rugby under this administration have been treated poorly, that includes the likes of Slipper, Quade, Stiles and also Knuckles. So it's frustrating to see the failures of the management team go unpunished.
I predict that the Karmichael Hunt situation will resolve itself in about 12 months.
