    Need to make sure of Sasagi. Good looking team though.

    I added him, although I remember talk of him extending but can't recall it being announced.

    Of those off contract at end of 2020, I’d be happy if we re-sign Guerra, Jones, Watson, Randall, Croker, Huth and Sasagi (not sure if the options are in his or the club’s favour). With the 21 players Billy mentions above, that’d take the first grade team to 28 players with room for a couple of low-cost pickups and development spots for other upcoming juniors.

    Half way through this season and entrenched as one of the best 6 sides this season and already talking about next season. Jesus wept. :lol:

    We never want to fall at the wheel again...it's topical given JSafs resigning.

    Nothing wrong with that - just hoping for the success to continue next year. JSaf re-signed today so interested in others as well.

    If we could run that team out next week i would be stoked. Its even stronger than this year.

    The experience level is good but I agree with some that a Guerra/Glasby hard as defender would be great.

    How they decide who gets the development contracts I don't know. They'll have to put all our best 20/21 year olds into pre season and see who is still good after a year off.

    My hope is that Crossland is going so well they have to pick him at 6 by then. Or anyone that can pass really.

    I think we have signed a full team of players we really wanted.
    Everyone else will get a lowball offer and if they sign they sign, and if they don't, we go shopping.

    I like to give you the benefit of the doubt that your not a troll, but times like these don't help.

    Added Christian Ma'anaima - I assume he'll be fulltime and not development.
