Angus Bell hasn't signed yet? Well, next year is a World Cup year so probably will be easy to retain high profile player
 

Pass it to Dunning!

I don’t think much deadwood in the unsigned but also some talent coming though like harry Wilson and nick chan may need to make room for from development to full squad members.
Maybe dead wood is too harsh. But for a bunch of players, if they were going to develop into championship-winning players, they would have done so by now.

He definitely took a punt signing for one year thinking his stocks would rise and at this point it looks like a great move by him.

Last year he had a ton of potential to be a key Wallaby but Rugby Australia would certainly be looking at his contract for 2023 onwards as the starting LHP for the Wallabies and one of the most important players in the side. Absolute gun.

Adam Ashley-Cooper, the most underestimated player at international level. He never received the credit that he deserved from international Media

So we have seen some improvements in tahs this season. What is the difference. To me would be;

Front row pretty good with bell and HJH (Harry Johnson-Holmes)

Hooker options pretty solid

second row better with Holloway and cridge, with hanigan to come

back row much stronger with depth witb gamble and Harris at forefront and hooper to come.

depth at half with grant behind Gordon showing promise but not the finished product so need Gordon if going to win the big games

centres strong with Perese and Foketi.

wings - probably still say just ok here but Marky M (Nawaqanitawase) showed promise last night but need a closer look at his defence which was main area of concern.

fullback looking ok with newsome and Harrison options but still early days and Beale to come next year but not sure how much that makes a difference.

Apparently Nemani Nadolo is coming home via the Waratahs. Pretty great pick up, still does absolutely bonkers stuff at his age.
Interesting…I suppose one of the benefits is what some of the younger players like Marky n might learn / pick up from him plus immediate squad quality depth.
