Any news on us securing the experienced half back we so desperately need. Boas as gone but doent change the fact we need an experienced organiser.  A hooker and full back at scrum half and stand off wont cut it at this level.  Even recognising the job they did ast year.  Dixon no one knows could be great or may need time to adapt.  Either way unfair to pin it all on him.

Callum needs to go back to 9 but can't see it as we have 3 hookers at the club who need game time but a half back to go with Karl is essential and keep Dion running hard with the ball rather than playmaking

The problem is all our half options Calum Dixon Dion and Forrester are all operate as running threats at half. We just dont have anyone who can organise the team direct play or initiate creativity in attack.  Not to mention a kicking game.  Now we are unlikely to get someone who fits all that criteria but we do need someone who has some of that skill set or we will be toast.

The good thing is the money is there.  Sure someone will come available.

Gone quiet in the HB front.

Lets hope Doran falls out with Thorman and comes home.

Far too early to give up on Dixon, has played well so far

He is going to need a scrum half to give him a hand.

Dixon at 6 with Callum at 9 and Dion at 13.

Need a HB to organise and run the game.

Oh for a Tane Manihera!
