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.
But he could be promoted to the 30? Can't remember if there was a deadline?

There are a couple ways he can still play nrl next season including promotion into top 30
That's cool. I hope he does, I'm keen to see him get an extended, injury free run... Let's not even start on at who's expense 😅

I listed a bunch of centres and potential centres the other day and forgot him. Would be good to see him stay fit so we at least know if he is worth worrying about or just forget him

Showed a bit of promise... But then that's what I thought with Sorenson, and where did that get him?

Must have 29 signed by end of March.

With his injury, he could easily just stay as a non top-30 contract and be added as a dev player or player #30 after he’s got some footy under him in Cup

Cheers mate, feels like we'll get to see him play a first grade game or two next year

Unfortunately I get the feeling this kid will never fulfill his potential.
yeah he's starting to give me a Tautau Moga vibe with his injuries and untapped potential.

He had alot of shoulder injuries in his junior days but seems to be getting more leg injuries now.

Hopefully more a Ricky Leutele scenario...

Now regarded as one of the most durable players in the sport, Leutele missed just one game for the Wolfpack in 2019, but it was a string of frustrating injuries early in his career that led to a fitness regime that has seen him become a stranger to the Club’s medical staff. Debuting for the Sharks at just 20 years of age, Leutele looked set to light up the NRL in 2011 but he would manage just 12 games across the next three seasons due to recurring injuries.


“2010 I debuted and then 2011/2012, I was carrying injuries and was in and out of the squad. I had a massive preseason leading into 2013 and I started strong that year but then got injured in Round Three and it put me out for the entire year. Around that time, I totally changed the way I look after my body when it comes to preparation and recovery and it has paid dividends for me, it has worked out so well. I will continue to do the same for the rest of my career now.”

It's every every young sharks players dream to go from promising talent to coaches pet followed shortly by forum whipping boy and ultimately make a grand final winning tackle in the BWB before playing for an overseas footy team that gets deleted from a competition
