    I think another No.8 is more important that some other positions. After Stander, whose next? Is Lopeti Timani available?

    Who would be that bigger star at 10?

    As for 8, I'd shift Anstee there to fit in FLW at 6. We also have Alex Masibaka in the academy. You wouldn't say no to a good 8 (McMahon?) But it isn't essential.

    I'd like to see Brody MacAskill recruited back from Japan.

    I had forgotten about MacAskill. Must be about ripe for Super rugby now.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Andrew Deegan brought back as another option at 10. He was looking great when at the force, but never really seemed to get a decent run at the rebels.

    But also think we need to get Pasitoa back.

    THP is the real other concern though, and a good attack coach.

    That's probably the biggest conundrum. Not many out there. Miotti looks like definitely going to Glasgow. If Donaldson is gonna be stuck behind Harrison he could be our best target. Probably have to pretty much guarantee him the starting spot though. I'm not convinced with McIntyre yet.

    Matt Lucas (at 10) and McMahon (playing 8) look pretty good in Japan, I would go after them depending on contracts.
    Need to start giving some of these young guys in our squad a go like Grayson makara and Strachan
    See what happened when we played olowafela ahead of brache and Lacey

    https://www.americasrugbynews.com/20...-for-biarritz/

    Looks like Cubelli has signed for Biarritz, leaving after this year's season. The article says Medrano and Lezana will both remain with us for 2022 however.
    Disappointing, but somehwat expected and gives us a better opportunity and motivation to develop McDonald (pending recovery from injury).
    I think we should be looking at getting Issak Fines-Leleiwasa back if possible. He's not yet signed for the Brumbies next year and is stuck behind Nick White and perhaps Ryan Lonergan. He's getting some time on the wing at the moment, but that's not really his favoured position and once Kata's back from injury I think he'd struggle to get into the 23 ahead of Wright, Kata and Muirhead for the wing or bench position.

    Other options could be Ryan Louwrens (injury prone, but I always rated him) and Rory O'Sullivan??

    Good news on Medrano. Not a lot of options on the market at THP. McDonald definitely needs plenty of game time next year. I'd be starting him with Prior off the bench for leadership. Isn't there another young 9 in the U20 squad? Anapu?

    A thumbs up isn't enough for that one James

    Especially yes to McDonald starting games with Prior on the bench, that way we can sub him out if he starts to struggle and know that we have somebody who can do the job to cover for him.

    Far better than giving McDonald the last 20 minutes of the match with no chance of a reprieve.

    Many thumbs up for getting Fines back over here! He is too good not to be getting much game time.

    Cubelli was announced as signing for two seasons. I wonder if something has changed

    You'd imagine Fines and Harry Lloyd are kicking themselves for not staying with the Force and getting a heck of a lot more minutes than they've been getting.
