    The USA vs England game at Twickers is on replay at Stan.

    Marcel Brache started at fullback and was not embarrassed, until he went off with a HIA after 30 minutes. He few great takes in the air and kicks.

    Correct signed for one year, but has not been listed or spoken about as a player departing. Hopefully will be in that drip feed of signings over the next week or two

    Pulu has shown himself to be fragile this year, lots of leg/ankle injuries, I'd think mataele is going to replace him. We also have an embarrassment of riches at wing. Kahui, mataele, Ralston, Strachan would be handy, Lacey will struggle to see bench time and he's on contract for next year.I'd be putting the pulu money into an experienced ballplayer/stepper to play 10 or 12, we don't really have that sort of threat in the squad, so we either field an inexperienced combination or put kahui or Godwin at 12, that would give us plenty of midfield crash ball, but it's a lot to put on a young guy like kuenzle to be the only ballplayer in the backline.Maybe that'd work if you had McGregor at 15 to share fist receiver.I still think there's a gap there to be filled in both playing style and mentorship.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we made a play for Kerevi. I am assuming he will be looking for a team after the olympics and if he signs shortly for 2022 he will be available for the Wallabies.

    I know a lot of people don't rate him but he would be a good experienced player to have at 12 outside McIntyre/Kuenzle/Pasitoa and can get us over the gain line

    True, he does add the experience at 12, but I think he's too similar to Kahui and Godwin.He might be able to change his game up like paisami has, but I think it's a big ask. Paisami has really removed all memory of kerevi in Queensland simply by adding a passing and kicking game to a skillset that was essentially the same.I'd be hoping for a 12 more in the Matt giteau mild, because it's a different style to what we already have (I'm talking young giteau when all he wanted to do was dance through the line, not middle-years giteau when he used multiple teams to learn how to play 10)

    Still need another Prop and Lock. Good signings would include Cabous Eloff and Seru Uru.

    I dont want him either! Dont think he is the right fit for the Force, too old for one thing!

    As for the recruitment of Blake Ferguson. The one thing that the Force have needed since day one in 2006 is a line breaker. All of them have always been locked away by contracts, or out of our price range. (Yes I am betting Hodgo still has a budget he has to work within.)

    Ferguson has the potential to be that guy.

    And we need to look outside the box. To get that X factor.....
    Agree with you about Burke but not about Ferguson .Not a good fit for the Force. Its sounds like the new CEO is pushing for it though, I wonder what the coach thinks about it?

    But why do we need him for that ? surely that role needs to go to an ex Force player who has respect in the community. Yes I understand he has Indigenous heritage but there must be someone out there that has respect in the Force and Rugby world who could do the job! It seems to be a thing the new CEO is pushing for.

    A lot of members on this site appear to have an interest in Henry Taefu, so I thought i would post an update.

    He has signed to play for North Harbour in the NPC,

    North Harbour recruit....

    "The other major addition comes in the midfield, with Samoan centre Henry Taefu linking up with Harbour after representing the Western Force in Super Rugby this year."

    Apologies if it is the incorrect thread, was not sure where to post.

    Thanks Tazz. Unfortunately he is wasted in the NPC. He should be playing Super Rugby.

    It's reported that they're looking for another Flanker to complete the Forwards' roster. I don't see how this is the priority for the final (?) Forwards slot. With Koteka and Callan (and I've seen Stander play 7), the 7 position is done. With FLW, Anstee and Pugh (apparently) the 6 position is done. Perhaps I'm missing something, but don't see it as a priority.

    I should add Tizzano was excellent this year, and while it would be great for him to return, what would this say to Koteka and Callan? Yes I know did play a game or 2 at 8, but not sure that's his best run-on position.
