Suprised no one else has come knocking tbh. Someone like parra who are filling their squad with nsw cup players. Thankful though as he looks like a good prospect.

Me too but feel like there's a handshake agreement to give him something better when they free up some roster spots.

Only explanation for mine, if he was on the open market surely clubs would have been keen

Excuse my ignorance, but has anyone seen much of Ferris play? Loved the way he scored that try, but with the injury that's really all I've seen. Is he worth our hype?

I remember getting all gooey over Sorro when he scored his highlight reel try way back when, so I'm trying not to get too giddy about this bloke yet!

He's certainly worth keeping and seeing what he has.

Watched a lot of him playing for the Jets and he's good. Liked everything I've seen so far.

So hard to gauge where this guy is at. He’s missed 4 of the last 6 seasons. Looks good when he is on the park though.

He must feel about ready to give up the poor fella. Fingers crossed he gets all of the injuries out of the way and has a shot at first grade fully fit.

Really disappointed for him, and hope we give him another shot. Great ambassador for the club.

That's a real shame. Hopefully he gets it together and is able to get a crack at first grade. That is a concerning amount of injuries though.

Yet plenty of punters are happy to slag of players when they go chasing the dollars... I fear more for the blokes mental well-being than anything, hope he is surrounding himself with good people.

Won't be Top 30 but will be on a full time training contract.

Has gone back under the knife 5 weeks ago and is in a boot again for 6 weeks. Won't start running till January.
