just did some digging on him and he was a big part of the dogs HM and SG Ball team. will come as a flegg player for us
Use a bigger shovel...

He played 4 games off the bench in SG Ball this year, and was 18th man in their GF qualifier. He's also born in 2004, so while he may very well play in Flegg (if he's good enough), he'll still qualify for SG Ball next year.

The last two years no Sharks SG-Ball aged players have played up in Flegg regularly until after the SG Ball season was finished. Even the really good ones (Dykes, Stonestreet, Samrani, Sikei) all finished the SG Ball season and joined Flegg in June.

sorry mate, i think footy is like basketball and under 19 means under 19

you are right, he can play sg ball, i reckon he will go straight to flegg as we have made this a big coup of a signing

I was thinking cheap bench , but game getting faster and Marty getting older too.
Manly might have totally milked that cow

So currently I think confirmed top squad for next year is

1. Blayke Brailey (2026)
2. Dale Finucane (Storm) (2025)
3. Cameron McInnes (Dragons) (2025)
4. Nicho Hynes (Storm) (2024)
5. Braden Hamlin-Uele (2024)
6. Jack WIlliams (2024)
7. Toby Rudolf (2024)
8. Connor Tracey (2024)
9. William Kennedy (2023)
10. Siosifa Talakai (2023)
11. Braydon Trindall (2023)
12. Jesse Ramien (2023)
13. Teig Wilton (2023)
14. Ronaldo Mulitalo (2023)
15. Sione Katoa (2023)
16. Lachlan Miller (2023)
17. Matt Ikuvalu (2023)
18. Oregon Kaufusi
19. Siteni Taukamo
20. Jesse Colquhoun
21. Tom Hazelton

We've got enough for a TLT!

Unsigned for next year - with a comment on my thoughts
Briton Nikora (2022) - on the right deal keep, if he's demanding look elsewhere
Royce Hunt (2022) - would be good to keep him
Franklin Pele (2022) - at this stage not even sure if there is a spot at min wage, maybe if Royce left
Wade Graham (2022) - prefer not to, or very cheap
Andrew Fifita (2022) - prefer not to, or very cheap, and honestly his body might be better in the long run for stopping
Jensen Taumoepeau (2022) (Club Option 2023) - no thanks
Matt Moylan (2022) - 2 years being suggested as done, I'd prefer 1
Mawene Hiroti (2022) - min wage sure, he'd be better off looking elsewhere I think, has slipped down a bit for us
Aiden Tolman (2022) - min wage or close to would be good for another year probably
Jayden Berrell (2022) - great depth but could see someone else pursuing him

Dykes and Iro might need to come into top 30 for us to retain them also I'd say

If he’s that good, straight the the Jets!

Outside backs you can skip Flegg if they are stand-outs. You just have to live with some awful defence for half a season.

I think of the unsigned - assuming Moylan and Nikora are done deals then we should keep Hunt. That probably does it for Props you'd think. I think Pele might have missed the boat now.

Tolman, Graham and Fifita I think need to move on. Pains me to say it but it's time.

Hiroti - pass, he's depth and think we're best served using Iro, Stonestreet etc

Berrell I'd like to keep if he doesn't get a better deal elsewhere.

Hoping to see more of Samrani soon, though he's had a few injuries so needs more game time perhaps.

Yeah me too. A few young blokes didn’t make it on to bort’s list above because we are not quite sure of their status. I’m guessing Samrani is at least an NRL squad player next year (dev or T&T).

2 weeks in a row of being 18th man for the Jets, with Tyla Tamou playing ahead of him 😞

Meanwhile, Jackson Ferris is still going strong. This coming weekend will be his FOURTH game in a row. I don't know when the last time was he put 4 games together in a row. Maybe the middle of 2019.

The club not picking up jensen's option and signing Iro to a top 30 deal seems like a pretty straight swap surely?
