Considering how hot the team was before all of the injuries, it is a real risk destroying the chemistry which is no doubt crushed after all of these moves. No matter what happens going forward, there will always be some level of wondering if we would've been fine just staying with what we had.

that said, I love the Murray pick-up. That was something we needed VERY badly.

Percentage is a number as a fraction of 100.

They added a ton of quality depth, so I'll go with 40%.

20 percent.

They didn't improve that much because they wasn't a ton of room to improve.

They did address almost everything.

I was thinking 19 stones, because that's a whole lotta rosie.

Just glad that needs were addressed along with the veteran leadership that was added. All in.

Love the creative responses to the question. :thumb:

A pallet of talent.
A drum of grit.
A desk of veteran leadership.
and of course a hammock of scoring ability
