Is our recruitment complete? Nothing stated. If not where do we still look at?

I would say it’s complete. If there’s anyone to come in, I would look at tighthead...and perhaps hooker unless Davies or Hughes really kick on this year. Losing Emyr was a big blow.
Maybe a phil price type signing on the tight as well as we are thin on the ground there IMO.

Really? Samson, kruger, Nicky Thomas as 3 first line tightheads for many sides. I think we're looking pretty stocked if you look at the squad on wiki, it's true I think this is the strongest squad of players I remember us having for many a year

Didn't Nicky Thomas sign for the dragons on a permanent contract a few months ago?

Nicky Thomas is no longer with us I believe and judging by his fitness when playing for the Dragons against us he doesn't deserve a squad place. We really could do with developing a young tight head soon as with Samson away with Wales we rely very heavily on Werne's excellent durability but he isn't getting any younger.

Michael Collins for next season 2019/20 hopefully, being that he's said he wants to come back to us.

He ihas a year on his contract but has now apparently recently said he wants to come back to Wales and he has good friends in Llanelli . Very good player 👍

You forget the mighty Simon Gardiner, an excellent scrummager and improving in the loose.
Even then with Samson's international/injury absences we could do with another tight-head, unless there's real promise being shown by someone in the U20/23

Cancel the above !!!- I've just seen that Javan Sebastian is in the squad - another extremely promising prop who may now be mature enough to start fulfilling that promise.

Should be perfect if Collins back at end of ITM season, maybe ready for 6N window...in this moment in Auckland Blues there isnt a good situation and his left could be possible
