If Timani isn't around next year then Uru would make more sense as someone to go for, with Uru & McCauley playing behind Thrush and Rodda.
    I hope Thrush and Timani re-sign, but until it's official it isn't official! You need 3 good Locks in the 23, then you need injury cover because one of those 3 will miss a few games through injury or rest. And I don't count FLW as a Lock in my list (see earlier post) as I hope he spends most time at 6. Plus Uru also covers 8. Stander is very good but getting on, Anstee needs to put on about 10 kegs. Callan also if they want to make him an 8.

    All in all team is looking in good shape for next year, just a few more key signings.

    I think Uru would be great.

    Every time the subject of lock stocks come up for 2022 I'm left scratching my head with Jake Ball as signed for 2021. To do what?

    Anyone the wiser?

    As I've said a few times. Unless it's official, it ain't official!

    He is undoubtedly a good player, but how does he fit into the plan?

    Roddha is signed. I'd want to keep Thrush and Timani. (If one of them goes then Ball can replace). McCauley is here and being invested in. I see one more Lock position (I'm not counting FLW). This last position is for a Wallaby eligible development player in my opinion.

    Was Jake Ball ever signed for the Force, or simply coming back to WA to be with his family?

    Well at least that will limit some of the ritual protests around club finals time. Or not.

    In my book still looking for one Prop, one Lock, and one Outside Back.

    And of course re-signing some existing key players.

    I wouldn't be surprised if one or two of the Outside Backs already signed for next year are released.

    Fines I'm happy to welcome back. Kuenzel, Tapine and Pasitoa are all young and have that on their side, but I'm a little concerned that they may not be the upgrades we need in the backs. Fines, Kuenzel and Tapine were all released by the Brumbies, so we're picking up players another team didn't want.

    Not so sure they were released by the Brumbies, especially the first three, I believe they saw more opportunity to start here than there and from reading some other blogs and websites they were the the next generation for the Brumbies and this is a coup for us and the program Hodgo and Tim are building

    Sounds like they were released when the Brumbies found out they were not resigning with them.

    Jeezus Gunny! I'm pretty ancient and even I can't recall any of his stuff. Save for a vague recollection that he was rubbish.
