Will Chambers officially signed with Japanese Rugby for next year...phew!
Im neither here nor there about Kahu tbh. He openly said when we signed him that he may go to rugby union from 2020 anyway so this is hardly news. He's had a solid enough season considering the team's performance this year but he's hardly a game breaker. We need some x-factor in the centres...
Gagai would be doing his absolute best to sign a new contract (with Souths or elsewhere) during the origin period. His origin form every year far outshines anything he has ever shown in clubland.
As for DWZ - very happy to have "missed out" on that one.
Im not keen on Edwards at all, but wait and see i guess.
Id be happy for us to give Kahu another 12 months if he's keen to stay. He's been the best fullback we've had this season and is a very handy goalkicker.
