You are right Tofilau was a punt but he is ahead of Rasolea which doesn't say much for him. He has a similar level of Experience as Burliegh albeit in a weaker team but he should be doing better.
I was meaning Glenn Bryce rather than Kevin, he has been the biggest disappointment for me. He looked very sharp at Glasgow and just hasnt delivered here yet. Kevin, has been badly handled, but again he was brought to do a job in international windows and hasnt done it, I am not saying it is his fault.
In terms of filler, we have a whole backline. In terms of international class, we really dont have anyone. We have potential with Kignhorn, SHC and Hoyland . You can possibly add Dean in there and thats about it. Weir and Burleigh are top end club players at the rest are as you say filler. If you compare it for example to the back lines of the Welsh teams and Connaght we are miles behind. Forwards are slightly different but many of them are very young and in the potential bracket. Bresler and MzKenzie are in the similar level to Weir and Burleigh, no problem with them in the team but you need a bit more quality to get to the top end of the table. Mcallum, Cosgrove, Ritchie and Bradbury are still developing but have been asked to take on some senior roles in the team due to injury.

Are they building something else there in addition to the (newly opened) Oriam?

Disagree with a couple of things tbh. McCallum is NOT 5th choice at TH, given he's been playing ahead of Beavon and for most people would be ahead of Bryce as well. I think Bradbury is first choice at 6 now as well. As for scrum half, anyone's guess tbh. I think most of us would put Bresler as first choice at lock.
