Re: Liam Squire

Regardless of whether Squire makes the ABs side or not, I hope he regains form and has an injury-free season. He's a great player to watch. This for me. I just can't see him forcing his way back into the ABs but hope that his presence creates some pressure on Akira to make him keep working harder. ...

Re: Liam Squire

No love for Vaea Fifita? I have plenty of love for Fifita. His problem is that his form has been poor over the past two seasons. He looks completely bereft of confidence. He was a bench player for the Hurricanes last year, and even struggled to make an impact in the Mitre 10 Cup. He looks to have t...

Bit late for that, coupled with the fact that the vaccine will not be rolled out to everyone and from what I have heard, doesn't always stop people from contracting the virus, but limits sickness. Could be wrong?
