    Tapine looked very good in the pre-season this year and was very surprised he wasn't given a run instead of Poolman

    I suspect that after the awards dinner at the end of next week we will have a clearer picture of whose leaving.

    Then similar to the other franchises we should start hearing about the last few signings.

    With respect Transiting.

    I humbly believe that Nic White will be the starting 9 for the Force in the 2024 season.

    59 Walaby Caps ( plus an extra 4 minimum for the RWC) will always trump being a fan favorite with a cool hair cut at HBF Park.

    No worries, Mate. All good. Note what the Brumbies did at the start of this season. Started with Lonegan & Debreczeni. No doubt White is the better 9. I see these pairs swapping during the season. Actually, my main point was the pairings I think they'll make. White & Pasitoa, or IFL & Burey.

    I thought our 3 wingers this year were all good quality, not sure if kibirige is staying or not but nothing wrong with Pulu and Mataele if fit

    Anyway that front row is a big worry and we wonít win any games if we donít recruit something there

    We need to be realistic front row and lock stocks are in very short supply world wide, and adding to it level of foreign salaries and our own self enforced salary caps and other constraints it is unlikley we are going to make any"big" signings. The best we can do is find some hard grafting journeymen to help, mentor and enable the younger players we have to be drip fed into the system.

    I suspect that Mataele and Pulu will be around next year. (Check the facebook cover photo)

    to defend transiting, Mataele and Pulu aren't confirmed yet, so that's where that fits in.

    I reckon it'll become a horses for courses selectiopn battle, maybe not fo the first match, but definitely as things settle down.

    Finesey when we need to challenge the pillars early and White when we need to play territory.

    Prop wise, admittedly still a young buck, but after last night, could do worse than secure Massimo De Lutiis off Brumbies.

    Nic White is a saint, who only instructs the ref for edification and education due to his overwhelming concern for the good of the game.

    Likewise his box kicks are perfect examples of positive rugby, only spoiled by the callous and illegal play by oppositions who don't respect the finer points of the game.
