    Agreed, we need 2 of Naughton. Could actually do with 3 - because his injuries are becoming too frequent it would be nice to have a spare.

    Believe we tried him forward when he returned but he wasn't the same.

    Bob made the 2008 AA squad of 40 playing at CHF. The knee injury robbed him of his turning circle and he went back to half back.

    Well they're nothing to worry about here because nobody knows how to do them.

    Anyone know the injury news?

    Never heard of it and because nobody knows how to sticky threads I think you're trolling me.

    Needs to get out from under the doona.

    If I knew how to do it I'd sticky every thread. Then there'd be no complaints at all.
