Looking at discussions about next season spread over different threads, it seems time to start a new thread about next season's Chiefs squad.
- Below, I've started with the 2018 Chiefs squad that was named on 1 Nov 2017
- In italics, I have added the players that also played for the Chiefs in 2018, despite not being named in the initial squad.
- Between brackets are the number of games played this season (stats: Fox Sports)
- In bold are the players of which I know for sure that they are signed through to next season (obviously, this list may/will not be complete because the duration of contracts isn't always published. Some signings aren't even published)
- Strikethrough: players, who are known to be leaving
Some of the questions now are:
- In which positions do the Chiefs need to recruit more players.
- Who of the players of the initial 2018 squad would you like to see signed for 2019 (or longer)?
- Who of the players that played in 2018, but weren't in the initial squad, would you like to see signed for 2019 (or longer)?
- Which other player, who hasn't played for the Chiefs in 2018, would be on your wish list?
- Which player, who hasn't been signed yet, but played for the Chiefs in 2018, don't you want to be signed?
