    Have we got a full list yet?

    If not who are we missing?
    I would have thought we are pretty much there. We might just need one more experienced outside back, but that is not mandatory.
    We still havent used our marquee spot have we.

    We have Cowen, Fairbrother, Longbum, Dunning and PAE as props. I would have thought that would be enough?

    We have Sharpe, Hocking, Wykes and Battye as locks, with McCalman able to cover. That is what we need, one experienced, two mid range, one junior.

    We have really only Inman at 13 although Cullet could do it. Could do with another here.

    We have Ripia and Hunt at 10, with Bart able to cover at a pinch. I reckon we could do with another here.

    Outside back we have Cullet, Shepherd, Bart, Spanner, the young kid we just hired and Fairbrother. JOC might also end up playing there given his role at the Wallabies. Could do with another here. Talking about speed, Cooper seems to think that Cullet is one of the fastest in the Aus squad at the moment.

    So why did Lachie Turner do the sprint then?

    You've listed a Fairbrother as a prop and an ousted back, was this an error, or are ther two.....or is he big AND fast!
    I'm concerned about our midrange locks this year. I was confident this time last year, but they seemed to go backwards since then. I think we need another good lock.

    Fairbrother! Meant Fairbanks.
    Fairs fair though.

    I dont know why Turner did the sprint. It was just who they decided I guess.
    The thing about Cummins was quoting someone else on another board.

    Ahhh of course....I posted cos I couldn't figure out who the hell you were talking about

    Turner looked pretty bloody quick, and I didn't think lightning speed was Cullet's thing, he seems more of a power winger to me......If he's quick, that's even better!

    Having a look at the other clubs and our websites player listings.

    Force 29 (including Rapana who is listed as academy and Tyrrel), Rebels 31, Brumbies 21 (think this should be 25 with four promotions to full contracts), Reds 30 and Waratahs 28

    Ohh look I don't think we really need another prop but Richard Graham mentioned Nic Henderson when he talked about replacements so I figured that is where he was looking. I do think we need another lock though. I'd like to see Sam Wykes become a 6 as I don't think lock is the position for him. Not sure where we'd pick up another lock from though. Unless someone like Dan Heenan or Hugh McMenimen were convinced to come back from Japan but with their injury demons it'd hardly be money well spent.

    If Wykes goes to 6 he'd be fighting for a spot with McCalman, Hodgo and Brown
    and i dare say he hasnt got hope in hell of upstaging any of them...

    Fairbanks is a 12 (and a VERY good one I might add. Great boot, playmaker and tackler. Was always just behind Giteau at the Brumblies. If JOC plays in the back three, he'd be a very good option at 12 with the massive Inman at 13 :-)

    I'd like to see Wykes play at left right out
    Too much hair and not enough heart.
    Tight forwards with hairbands belong in the dykes on spikes division

    He runs slower than my 18 month toddler, gets belted, is two plays behind the game and spends lineout time adjusting his hair instead of listening to the calls

    We let that kid lock go to melbourne and kept this bloke? That'll do me
