    Big bugger. He will be sorely missed.

    Never met him, but always seemed like a good egg.
    Wish him well for the future and hopefully see him in the Pumas.

    Really need to start seeing the Force issuing longer term contracts to key players.

    Bit hard to offer longer term deals when you can only guarantee the competitions existence to the end of the current TV deal.

    It's the line used, but apparently not by others.
    Brumbies have Alaalatoa and Valetini to 2027 and two to 2026.
    Reds have McDermott to 2027 and five to 2026.
    Waratahs have Bell to 2027 and three to 2026.
    And the Rebels have...

    NZ are under the same broadcast deal-

    Blues 1 x 2027 and 3 x 2026
    Chiefs 1 x 2027 and 4 x 2026
    Crusaders 3 x 2027 and 1 x 2026
    Highlanders 2 x 2026
    Hurricanes 1 x 2028, 4 x 2027 and 11 x 2026

    So the only ones without players beyond 2025 are the Force, Drua and Moana (and Rebels... for accuracy...)

    I doubt it Daz, but to be fair, there are 3.5 good tightheads on the market- Tupou, Pone F, Talakai and arguably Eloff.

    True, but there are some good THs at the other clubs, and they have salary caps, too. I'd be disappointed if we didn't pick up one of them.

    I'd be happy with Eloff, I reckon he's about prime to hit his straps having served his apprenticeship and matured.
    Appears to be around for the long haul, having not gone to Europe in the last couple of Rebels seasons on the Bench, so could be a great long term prospect.

    I know not a tighthead but that kailea looks bloody good, I hope we are going hard for him along with one to two of the ones you mentioned
