i think we are goin backwards a couple of seasons ago we were sighning class players ie sam obst, joel penny , aaron summers, ryan tandy , mick nanyn  and now we are buying players from town who play nl2 level when we are national 1 class whats going wrong these players are not going to improve our squad just ruin what has been built over the last 5 years sorry but ill have said here is true

Obviously not, as you have asked him the same question on 3 threads without a reply.    Just another name plucked out of the miriad of foreign names bandied about!!!

Matt Tunstall is more than capable with a good turn of foot for a prop BUT he just doesn't seem to have the heart for the big crunches.   He tends to stop on reaching the tacklers instead of trying to bust through them and at 29 (30 in September) is he likely to alter all that much???   He might find it a lot tougher in NL1.   Oh, and JT is back in New Zealand.

Didnt Tuigamala have alot of disciplinary problems whilst at Town? Im sure he struggled for fitness last seasons and there were rumours of him allegedly turning up for training under the influence. Not the type of player we want or need im afraid.

The players we sign from the amateur game are almost nearly exclusively  young players who have gained International caps at amateur level. Not 30 year old donkeys with knackered knees.


No one can gloss over this one.
