    Who are we going to target/get?
    We need some desperately at the moment.
    Its quite sad atm that i would settle for any regular first grade props.
    Who do you guys want, think we can get?When can we get them?
    Napa & Grant have been spoken about.
    Brown says he wants to get 4-5.

    If we put Roquica into fulltime training now he might be fit by after the bye.
    He isn't playing very well doing part time training, but a couple of weeks working hard and he could go 20 minutes maybe.

    Is Requico in the Fiji squad, he seems hard enough to play but what about our reserve grade props, Amey and Soulo, they are in the system and should be fit and ready. Reserves not going well so can fill there position with others, our need is 1st grade where we have a real problem. Surely Amey and Suolo are better than makeshift replacements.

    Roqica is in the Fiji squad and is a 27 year old prop with a lot of senior experience including 6 NRL games and he did pretty well against top players in the World Cup.
    I don't think he is training too hard at present, but if we gave him enough pay to train fulltime I think he could be a bench option.
    Amey is also training part time and working fulltime. He could be better if we offered him enough money to go fulltime for the rest of the year.
    I don't think Saulo is fully fit because of niggling injuries, and we shouldn't push a 19 year old into firstgrade if he isn't 100%.

    I've liked eloni for a long time. He would be a much better player with full-time training. He just never seems to take it "serious". He plays because he enjoys playing with mates so to speak.

    I mentioned him at the start of the year,
    Billy mentioned thst Elioni and Fitzgibbon have had multiple biffs over the past few seasons.
    Guys hard as nails but as Dan said above, just plays for fun and doesnt seem interested in taking the next step to be a nrl player.
    Does have the ability though.

    I have to say that Saulo looked good yesterday.
    I haven't seen his stats yet, but his impact was the best of the season, which means career best I think.
    I notice most of the training pictures you see, Saulo is always training with the big boys.
    He might be getting close.

    There's an account on twitter pretending to be journalist James Hooper & they keep spitting bull, mostly about the Knights too. This was another one of their fake rumours.

    Tapau would be nice. But i really dont like Woods.
    A few signings before June 30 sounds promising though.
