Turpin is a suprise.

He would be a good pick up for the Knights. He's growing on me as a bench forward (still don't like him at hooker tho). Would still prefer Smith or Stimson on the bench instead of him but the Knights could use him

Yes, was in great form until his injury, but the emergence of Brandon Smith and Harry Grant means he will need to look elsewhere.

My thoughts also. He's a good defender even if he doesn't offer much in attack.

Looking at the ins and outs, they may play out something like this :

Grant for Turpin
P Kaufusi for McLean
Kasiano for Nichols
maybe Earl for Hawkins
Geraghty for Harris ( hmm , I think we lose more than a a bit there in the short term , but Louis hopefully has a future..)
Groat for Rochow
Papenhuyzen for Cronk ( well, clearly that is not one for one ,, and Ryan will be in 20s, so maybe it is Billy Walters or Matt Egan )

I think there is still room for Myles.

Geez, how much are we going to miss Tohu... Given his injury interrupted year, I think most people forgot how good he is. He showed on the big stage what he is all about. I know I'm personally going to miss seeing him run out in purple.

So strong, so versatile, so hardworking, et a humble/quiet bloke. He embodies what our great club is all about.

I'm gutted... have been a huge fan since watching him come through the 20s... one of my mates who I sat with Sunday night hasn't been sold, and we often debate it. Even he had to concede on Sunday I was right!
Huge loss!

Yeah, when T got his first grade jumper I was so happy for him. I thought he was destined to be a real leader for our club for years to come... Such a shame to lose him.

Maybe we go back and get him when Billy and Cam move on? We'll need an experience and leadership injection.
