    Wow, huge news! Somewhat surprised we've taken both Pasitoa and Kuenzle. Almost seems a bit harsh on the Brumbies and not 100% sold on Kuenzle.
    But Fines and Pasitoa is exactly what we are looking for. Hopefully Tapine is also a good prospect that can fill Olofowela's boots.

    Kuenzle is decent. Robust with a bit of size about him for a ten.

    At the moment it is Fines I am happiest about. I really hope the Force sits down with lots of vision on players like Smith, because of the halves going around I think Fines has the most potential going around to be that sort of fast recycling, omnipresent half required to release a back line. Got to build that backline of course, and someone really needs to stand up at 10, but little steps.

    THey were nothing more than rumour and specualtion

    The Brumbies list Bailey Kuenzle as a fly-half

    I'd be surprised if Jake Ball goes from playing for Wales and the Scarlets to playing just for Paly; it seems a bit hard on who he'd be up against. I also haven't heard of any major injuries he's picked up.

    So while it's speculation that he'd come to the Force, there's no other professional rugby employment in Western Australia, and moving to another side would be uprooting his family who are settled and haven't seen him for months.

    But if we had Thrush, Rodda, Ball & McCauley as locks, and FLW, Anstee, Stander, Koteka and Callan as back-rows that's not a bad set of 2nd & 3rd rows.
    With Robinson, Kaitu'u and Holmes we've got a handy starting forward pack and just need to build the front-row bench strength (Wagner's good but a step down still, and Abra and Winchester have potential, but I'm still not 100% sold on Ready - when he's great he's great but when he's not he's awful!)

    Whilst everything you said is true this is the list thread, not the speculation thread and I have found nothing that suggest he's signed on the dotted line

    I think it's pretty clear that they aren't the first choice, we're picking Kahui out of position in front of both of them and Olowofela has been locked in. The contracts are written and we do need somebody to cover if we have a bad run of injuries, can you be sure we'll get anybody better than them to cover our 4th and 5th injury in the outside backs? Anybody who will take that contract and be much better than them will likely get a better deal somewhere else wouldn't they?

    I wonder if they could convince Scoble back at hooker. He's made the Premiership team of the week a couple of times.
