They have about 6 international quality players and that's it. Depth is their major issue though, front 5 is really bad, decent back-row options, nothing at half-backs beyond Murray and a fingers crossed punt in Holland, back-three is very tame looking, centre not bad with Arnold coming in..but a lot of hope rather than established quality through the first team, let alone the squad.
They just have the one NIQ spot to play with too.
Angry Face being out for the season was massive hit for them leadership wise, coupled with POC going all they had left were Standers heroics. POM will make a difference next season which the new DOR will reap.
Their starting back-row of POM, TOD and CJ is fine but even they'll struggle behind a front-five that lacks any kind of oomph to trouble the better teams in the Champions Cup.
