Good to see.

On the sponsorship front, will Tahs be Super Rugby team to go through an entire season without a major sponsor?

It's something of a tricky one. Clearly they haven't had the sort of offer they want for the front of jersey sponsor but likewise they've added a bunch of other sponsors this year.

I certainly think it's better to have no front of jersey sponsor than to take far below the asking price just to fill it.

It would seem almost certain they aren't going to add one now.

May be... although imagine a major sponsor that

Im sure they want the money and the right amount from a decent sponsor, but the strip sure as hell looks better without one!

Not to stir the pot but why on this green earth is Paddy Ryan in a Tahs jersey again?

Even without the cards he scrums like a cardboard box in the rain, has tits for hands and is a complete penalty magnet. Now add 2 cards for 2 starts(the yellow was iffy I know) how on earth is he back? He was playing division 13 in Japan for the Fukuoka toenail clippers and now he's in Super Rugby again? I thought the nightmare was over.

If we have kids like Holz coming out of nowhere we can find an alternative in clubland somewhere

I think Holtz must’ve been injured. It’s telling that DC brought Ryan back on after his YC instead of keeping Smith on.

I reckon Coleman has more idea than you ... just saying.

Reckon he’s just a stop gap. When fit, HJH (Harry Johnson-Holmes) and Holtz are our THPs going forward. I think that Ryan offers a bit more around the field than Smith. But to me they’re both just filling in. The young bloke from Randwick might be a ways off Super Rugby. Are there other options in Shute Shield?

He's a stop-gap injury cover for sure. That's all. No need for too much outrage. Pretty sure DC would know if there was an awesome alternative in SS just waiting for a call.
Yep he was brought in for injury cover and has been holding his side of the scrum. He's past his best, but helping out a club that he's been a long serving and popular member.HJH (Harry Johnson-Holmes) should be back for the finals and his job will be done. He's also played about 3 more games for the Wallabies than most of us.

Holz was at the Brumbies not really out of no where and glads his kick on.. loved seeing him going awesome.

And Paddy Ryan... Jesus

Forgot paddy got 3 wallaby games (looked it up to confirm). Good on him. I am prepared to see a bit more of him personally as I don’t think he has actually been that bad and may be DC looking at him to bolster prop stocks as hard to find super rugby props whilst develop the younger props coming through.

Certainly no mention in this article that Ned Hanigan wouldn't be eligible for the finals.
I don't think number of games played matters for finals eligibility if a player is registered with the side from the start of the season, only comes into play for in season signings.

What happened to the Manly recruit the Tahs signed late last year? Hasn't been mentioned anywhere? Is he playing SS?
