Who amongst the academy lot is likely to get a contract? Some likely ones based on reputation:

- Freddie Steward
- Joe Browning
- Ronnie Du Rant
- Sam Costelow
- Jonny Law
- James Whitcombe
- George Martin
- Sam Eveleigh

Any others? Rowntree and Hardwick definitely have names that fit.

I think most of these are graduating, but one or two may be in their first year?

Geordan: "...Greg Bateman injured, hopefully not too long term but I don't think he's going to feature a huge amount this season."

That's a bit of a blow. Not sure what the injury is....?

Maybe he had a microphone shoved down his neck by a podcast interviewee.....

Whilst not ideal we have more than adequate resources at loosehead with Genge, Gigena and Ma'afu.

We need 3 enforcer locks to go with Spencer.
Front row overall good.

The rest apart from Denton Kala and Thompson are not up to the standard required , and is the main reason we are :censored:.
That and the abysmal coaching, Stanko excepted.

I'd settle for one lock that's better than all our current ones.
