We have been for several seasons….

I’m confident that Lee will more than put that right ready for 2023. It’s make the best of what we’ve got until then.

Lee should have put it right instead of buying Farimo imo. Without question.. Especially with Feki, Eden and Olpherts potentially available as top line wingers with Qarrqare waiting a shot and Clare for back up. Then the army fella!!!! Jeez.

His first mistake as CAS boss imo with Millington jacking in and JSL going especially

We'll struggle with interchange props especially and lose the grind in prolonged periods.

Do we have a quota spot still?

I think our prop issue is somewhat exaggerated tbh. I'd expect Watts, Matagi and Massey to be in the side each week leaving Smith, Lawler, Griffin, Hepi and Westerman as other options at prop. Granted Westerman would be our 13 but we also have players more than capable of playing that role if Westerman had to cover. I see that these aren't all top quality players but they can do the job with a good team around them which I believe Lee has done well with building. All in all, I'm optimistic

We’ve had a coaching team dominated by half backs for the last few years
Radford may be better at getting the best out of the forwards

If Carlsberg did gloom & negativity when there is a general sense of optimism around the club ahead of the season…….

I think when you look at other squads in SL then 6th to eighth is pretty fair, finish any higher and Radford will have had a a pretty good first season

We should be looking at top four with our strongest side out that's my opinion anyway

Yes and we can stand the loss of a half back, which a lot of other teams can't.

Other thing I'd add Mart is when Radoford as got rid of the players he dosnt want that are off contract this season and brought in the players he does want for 2023 and beyond it will be a formidable team

I’m thinking we lose trueman end of this season and sign a top halfback for 2023
