The outside backs are slim pickings in the next couple of years, so re-signing our young guys is priority #1:
Raiders 2021 - HSS, Kris, Valemei, Savage and Hoppa. I reckon we re-sign the 1st 2, good chance we take Valemei, we would be crazy to not get Savage, and who knows about Hoppa. Hard to prove your worth if you keep getting injured. The punt on him might not have worked.
Timoko is 2022.
Looks like we have centres covered, and Savage will provide some much needed speed once he comes of age.
I suspect we will need to find some gun Jrs aka Walsh or Walker, on top of our guys, but here is a list of possible options:
Meaney - Id be looked at him as next yrs Aekins. Also a handy backup GKer.
Hynes - FB, if you can bring yourself to move CNK to wing or centre, Hynes looks a decent option.
Iremia - Storm winger. Looked good in the trials.
Mann - Between him and Wighton, you could have a decent 6 and 1. Though I suspect both want the 6 jersey.
Hoy - He wont play 1 behind Ponga. They also like Crossland at 6. So can he win that spot? We could offer #1 (refer to Hynes)
Drinky - Refer to Mann and Hoy.
Burns - injury history is a serious worry, but when fit is a gun centre.
Dufty - Would add much needed speed to our backline (refer to Hynes/ Hoy/ Drinky).
Billy Smith - another with injury history. Was going to be Latrells replacement until he blew his knee, so they got JMoz.
Cini - Tigers winger. Killing it in NSW Cup ATM.
Farnsworth - 1 decent player at Bronx. Can play centre or wing.
Isaako - GKer. Winger only. NEVER FB.
Averillo - with Dogs stocking up on backs, and revamping the halves, seems the odd man out. GKer, can play any of the back 6 spots. He wheels.
Hammer - not that I see Cows letting him go, but speeeeeeeed!
Sami - One of Titans better players IMO, but seems to be the reserve back ATM, Don and Herbert favored over him and centre and wing.
Spry - Behind Sami, but good wraps.
Dunster or Penisini - Poach the Eels young guns backs!
Edwards - refer to FB issues above, but they will want Staines at FB soon surely.
Momirovski - underrated IMO. Is a genuine try scorer. Though has become a journeyman.
Feagai's - Steal the Drags young gun brothers.
Manu - will probably want a retirement package, and possibly FB spot - refer above.
Kepaoa - ACL injury doesnt help his cause, but was good for Tigz last yr, but his form reflects the Tigers this yr.
Talau - Another Tiger outside back that looks bad in a bad side. Was a gun Jr though.
