Where is Rivett going to play this year Burgo? Will he be at the Jets?
Hopefully Sharks NRL. Hynes-Rivett FTW ;)

I wouldn't know mate. I think we are all hoping that the guys on development contracts are up with the Jets more often than in Flegg. He was supposed to play Flegg last year as a warm up but got hurt, so I could see him having a similar year to what Trindall, Wilton and Ronnie did in 2019 (up and down between Flegg and Jets for the first 4-6 weeks, and then Jets full time after that.

He's still only 19 turning 20 though. Plenty of time.

Aside from the players I've also noticed we're training back up at the high school. Wonder if that's to do with the construction, but that's been going on for a while. Maybe Fitz prefers it up there ?

Nope they always train on those fields during summer, 1st grade will go back to shark park after Christmas break.

Finucane and Hynes moving state and played GF. Ikuvalu also played finals. Berrell obviously just signed and needs to move state.

Rudolf, Ramien, Talakai, Brailey, Tolman, Moylan all played last round, but then so did 10 others of whom some are older than Blayke (23), Talakai (24). In particular I wonder why Rudolf is off still but the likes of Williams and BHU had (or chose) to go back already.

Feels like Hunt and Fifita should definitely have gone back already as, Andrew played 6 games ending R22 and Hunt only played R19 & 20.
Not to just shade them though, Fifita (and perhaps even Royce) may be behind the scenes starting with some strengthening work for their dodgy knees before starting full training. And to that, also possible some of the other top 30 guys are also doing off the grass work already.

Of the others surely we don't keep Milne or Paterson but I probably would have thought one of O'Donnell or Vasquez might be around.
Maybe didn't impress last year.

Suspect Fifita would struggle with full training based on how he described his recovery. He didn't even sound that confident he would make it back

I know they were on there in previous years but thought last year they were always at Shark Park and never at those fields. Must have missed it

He's been spotted running since surgery right? He's 3 months post surgery, admittedly don't know a lot about it and it was very significant danger at the time, but given how far he was off the pace last season and if he has already done some of his own running I'd hope he is in the background somewhere on restricted/altered preseason program. And he might be.

The Podcast he did on the Ice Project he says he's told the club his goal is to make it through pre season.

Now whether that means he's going to make a call on his future then or he's just setting small goals for himself remains to be seen.

All makes sense mate. More experienced guys usually come back a little later. The reason for maintaining the list is moreseo for tracking the younger and the "other" guys, because we rarely get any info on the club about them.

Training pics. Jensen in the red bib.

I won't bother with the ones on Sharks.com.au from today unless it's someone new to identify, but I'll grab any others if they are different and post them here again.

A couple of Berrell to start.
