    I thought he was definitely going back to Brisbane but I haven't seen anything confirmed. If he's staying he'll be somewhere in the NYC. I don't rate him very highly though.

    There's things on some of the juniors boys Instagram accounts about farewelling Jacob so I think he's definitely gone.

    I'm not sure what forwards will be stepping up to NYC, we will be losing a s-load next year.

    Pondekas and Bradie Smith can both do NYC again next year.

    Tauhinu had a great debut in NYC. I was a bit surprised that guys like Koopu and a few others have featured before him since then when we've had a few props go down injured this year.

    Must have misred Pondekas' age. That's good to know, he's a big talent but doesn't look ready to even go up to NSW Cup just yet so glad he's got another year in 20s.

    What a wrecking ball he was, mini Toka. He can have a big year next year.

    Forgot about Koopu, would love to see more of him but he might get lost behind the other forwards going up into NSW Cup.

    I think Feeney may take a while to adjust in NSW Cup next year. He has a good skill set and size for a half, but his decision making leaves a lot to be desired at times.

    Yeah some will definitely play alot of NRL but if we go with the likes of Fa'alogo, Houston, Gidley at fullback etc I predict this will look close to the sides to begin with. I don't know if Sione will play NYC Cup or NRL either.

    Steele will be there too especially when Mataora and Vaivai go up into first grade.

    If we are talking NSW cup, it will be interesting to see who Lantry brings in for the part time squad.
    He has had a good chance to look at all the local players this year.

    It's an easier pill to take knowing now the Warriors are premiers. Some teams just go on insane runs during finals and that's what they did after only just scraping into 8th position. It ended up being our downfall facing them first.
