    25, NRL experience, part time deal. Great deal for us.

    Now previous management would have signed him for 350k a season and starting, then as fans we’d expect nothing more haha

    Looking forward to seeing what our NSW Cup side can do this year... they'll have a pretty handy back line (the pack's pretty handy as well haha)

    I can't see this guy getting a run in our reserve grade back line.

    Meaney
    Hughes
    Naden
    Denniss
    Sio/Cronan/Allgood/Cooper/Musgrove/

    Allgood is the only one in that group who hasn't done a proper, firstgrade level offseason, apart from Cronan, who apparently trained the best out of our reserve squad.

    I had the opposite impression last year.
    He had a few really bad games in reserve grade at the start of last year that looked liked he didn't want to be playing football at all. Maybe he was carrying an injury.
    He looked better when he went back to NYC, after he came back from a long injury layoff.
    This year in the trials he looks like a completely different player. He has actually learnt some skills, and he also has gained a lot of confidence. In the Toronto trial he was linking with Fitz and Rossy really well, but when Fitz gave him a bad pass he gave Fitz a massive blast and Fitz apologized to him.
