Despite signing Premiership winning half James Maloney, the club has turned over many more including Matt Moylan, Bryce Cartwright, Leilani Latu and after the conclusion of this season will part-ways with Tyrone Peachey.
There are also mumors of winger Josh Mansour looking to leave the club.
Off the field - it's a schmozzle at the foot of the mountains AND if things don't start well on the field, it could get ugly.
