Alot of work to do at wing......

Got 1 dedicated FB in Tiatia

Then a number of 10s who sometimes play 12 but also get put at FB
Donaldson
Burey
Pasitoa
Kuenzle
Poolman
Stewart

Burey at 10 / Pasitoa back up
Stewart at 12 / Kuenzle back up
Spink at 13 / O Donnell back up
Donaldson at 15 / Tia Tia back up
Potter on wing
Apparently another winger in negotiation to be signed which is why Pulu left
Poolman (still waiting to see what the hype was about) / Leahy back up on wing

Poolman is not a wing - and you need a bunch of wings in a squad. Need to list 2 with 2 backups.

Still a weak spot - hoping its J Savea!

Toni Pulu going to MLR (Seattle), weird how he wasn’t listed as a departure earlier though.
No real surprise.
Have really enjoyed Toni's contributions but he too became extremely frustrated by his inability to stay fit enough to stay on the park.
He's missed about half the games over the past 2 seasons.
Wish him every success with MLR.
Perhaps this announcement was delayed until Toni had somewhere to go. If that's the case then not so weird.

Maybe that's Poolman's problem then. Because he keeps getting played there.

Hard pass on Mr Savea for mine

Any word on how Pasitoa is going?
He played off the bench in recent games in SA. Looks like they are bringing him back slowly from his injury. The next 2 games against the Cheetahs are in Perth and I imagine he will get more time in those games.

Good to hear, hope all goes well for him. It’s good to see all 5 Aus sides have strong young prospects at 10. Need them to create that competition and force each other to improve

Reckon O’Donnell has the speed to play/cover Wing?

I’ve only ever seen him in the Centres but I get it’s a way to bring them through. Mortlock got a lot of Wing time early on.
