I thought the SG Ball team deserved their own thread. A lot of these players will be going up to 20's next year. I will move those guys in to the JF thread in the off season.

For those who don't know much about SG Ball - It's a 14 team U18 comp which features all of the Sydney teams (including the non merged Tigers, Magpies, Steelers and Dragons), the Roosters team plays out of the Central Coast, and there is a Perth team called the West Coast Pirates. They play a 9 round home and away season with finals and then a Grand Final played in the first week of May. The better players go up to 20's or possibly local A grade comps, and the rest go back to their local U18's after that.

The Sharks team won 7, lost 2 and finished 4th. They were eliminated the week before the GF 17-16 by the eventual winners, Penrith. The same thing happens in Qld with a National final played the week after. Penrith beat Souths-Logan (Bronco David Fifita's team) with a try right on full time to win the National Final.

Blue = re-signed in 2018
Orange = new signing for 2019
Green Underlined= Off Contract 2018
Red = Departing in 2018
Underlined = Born in 2000 so graduating from SG Ball next year.

Fullback
Declan Casey - Played fullback, centre and bench. Appeared in most games but got injured mid season. Not sure of his age.
Kyle Pickering (2019) (Born 2001) Played a lot of different spots. Fullback, back row, bench, and halves. NSW U16 Rep 2017. Was the Sharks U16 five-eighth that year.

How did the young blokes go Chad? Did either of them get the gig?

Tried to send you a PM today about the interview but I got an error message saying you don't receive PMs???
Sorry mate but I'd rather not broadcast personal details in the main forum.

You probably shouldn't by PM either mate unless the young fellas know what you're doing.

My PMs have been stuffed for a while mate. Someone else told me to ask Fitz but since I have no PMs I can’t do that :(

You can get me on Twitter or hassle Fitz to fix it.

Damon Smith has re-signed for 2019. The announcement from his management mentions that Smith and seven others from the squad will be returning. Pickering is one of them.

Sharks have signed Marco Talagi (NZ Schoolboy gun) for SG Ball in 2019.
According to the rumours thread we have also signed Thomas Giles from the Roosters.
