    Billy,
    I believe Lyndon Hills, Nash Burch and Matt Cooper are back training with the NSW cup is this correct.

    We never hear anything about the NSW cup squad, but all those guys sound likely.

    I notice Heath Gibbs is in some of the photos of off field activities.
    I hope Heath has moved to the forwards and id training with the NSW cup squad, although he could just be friends with the guys still.
    I think it was the profile piece on Tex Hoy that had a photo of Hoy, Connor Watson, Kayln Ponga, Matt Croker and Heath Gibbs.

    What sort of a contract would NSW Cup players be on if they aren't part of the top 30, on development deals or a 20s contract? Guys like these above and Jacob Gagai last year?

    Apparently English prop Liam McAvoy is training with reserve grade.
    I remember he came over mid season last year and did some training but I don't think he got a game.
    He played some local league and was pretty impressive by all accounts.
    He last played for Newcastle Thunder in the English second division.
