Mansour has retired so won't see him at jets this year
Was definitely in the training shots. Maybe he’s just helping out or doing pre-season for shits and giggles.

Could also just be playing RM Cup or something. It’s not unusual for players to “retire” but still play at a lower level.

… or he could have done one week of pre-season and thought “**** this”.

I reckon I'd think that after a day.

understandable we got a fair stack of depth in the halves with juniors

Are you cheating on us?

Cheers - His manager posted it on Instagram.

I hope he goes well. Really good player, but was stuck behind a few at the Sharks. Was part of our system for quite a few years I believe. Joined at maybe 15 or 16.

Frankie is gone now isn’t he? ESL?

This is how the salary cap works. Good players leave good teams for more money or a bigger role or profile.

And with Pollard coming through that’s definitely put some young halves on notice. Writing is on the wall pretty much.

Need to have a few tickets in the lotto.

Some Aussie schoolboys make it, but plenty don’t, and a lot changes in 5 years.

Wanna have a guess at how many current NRL halves were in the Aussie schoolboys team and kept playing for the team who had them at 18?

Hint. It’s more than zero and less than two, and rhymes with Clathan Leary.

I’m just saying from Cody’s standpoint he likely saw an ever longer pathway to higher grade footy and saw opportunities elsewhere

Haha yep. I just assumed we'd have a 2024 version like we do with player signings/squads/etc each year.
