I don't think it is time to give up now! Anyway here are some points worth considering - it is only round 1. Parra were hyped like it was a final. I always remember Dessie saying the real competition starts at around round 7-8. Let's see where Parra are come August. We did seem a little underdone Match fitness wise last night. We came out a lot harder last year in the early rounds. I remember we managed to roll Souths in the forwards in the early rounds. We all know what happened later in the year when they peaked and we fattened out. - we have lost DCE due to $ only. I am glad we did not tie up all our cap with 2 players. We will have some room in our cap to ensure we keep our young talent and bolster our forwards. - we have plenty of young talent coming through the ranks. Yes enough to build a good team around. - we have new players in our team this year that will only improve. Include Jake T in this mix. - we can cover Foz if he is out for a while. Apart from Killer I could see Hiku fitting into 5/8 much better than he does on the wing. He could be good in this position. Very good actually. - feeling confident we will work something out to keep FOZ now DCE has gone. He knows we need him to rebuild. Seemed pretty engaged last night and tried his heart out!
