Nope, I really rate him. He’s a good footballer & in the right experience range. These players are difficult to find. Strong hold & I know Thorn rates him highly.

Yep don't get the hate on Hegarty. Yeah he ain't no Paul McLean, but since he's regularly started we've looked a hell of a lot better.

He has no vision. Does not push the bal wide when there’s opportunities to be had on overlap.

Look at last week against Sunwolves, we had a competitive advantage in 2nd half and he could not capitalise. ((Edit- need to rewatch 2nd half. I know there was overlap try but can’t recall who was responsible, just think we should of scored more points))

I guess when you’ve been blessed with Quade Cooper who understands how to exploit stuff like this you’ve really been taking it for granted.

Defense is good, better goal kicking option then Hamish Stewart.. I just think The reds will end up going in a different direction.

He and Jono Lance have been stop gap options at one of the most important positions in rugby. We need either a world class flyhalf or a prodigy 10.

I dunno X, the baby Reds need to focus on doing the basic things well before we jump ahead and play like the Barbarians. I'd rather see more blokes running unders lines or players getting two touches in the same move before we get a guy like Quade throwing 'hail mary' balls.

How many more years until we start doing the basics well?

I’m not sure bringing Kuridrani home makes a lot of sense to me unless they think Petaia’s long term home is 12.

Outstanding player, but would command big money and it is not the spot we need to be throwing the most cash at assuming Petaia & CFS will still be in Red next year.

Assuming there is no hope of retaining Kerevi then my first priority would be a class 12, followed by a power winger to replace Naivalu.

Rebels will need to some shedding and I think Meakes, English and Magnay are all yet to re-sign. Could do worse than picking up one of them.

Meakes looks a good fit.

I like Magnay, but he also looks to me that his best position is 13 as is English. However I suspect at least one of them may be relatively cheap and, as such, a very good squad addition.
