Said it just now? Cheers. I couldn’t attend - have other stuff on.

Shall we assume Tolman 1 year and Miller 2 (as reported)?

Interesting, Cheers.
Any mention of if we have any serious cash left for a decent signing?

Nope, didn't cover that. There's a Q&A at the end so will see if there's any Questions asked (had to be pre submitted)

I'll provide a summary in the Membership 2021 thread
In triplicate, of course. With a carbon copy for the archive

- Jardan Samrani (2024) (u21)
- Siteni Taukamo (2024) (u19) (reported as joining NRL squad in 2023)
- Ryan Rivett (2023) (u21) (believed to be development list for 2022)
- Kade Dykes (u21) (believed to be development list for 2022)
- Jack Martin (2022) (u21) (possibly also 2023) (Was on development list in 2021)
- Jonaiah Lualua (2022) (Was on development list in 2021)
- Sam Stonestreet (u21) (confirmed as Train and Trial for NRL pre-season)
- Jesse Colquhoun (u21) (confirmed as Train and Trial for NRL pre-season)
- Josh Finau (2022) (u21) (believed to be development list for 2022)
- Jackson Ferris (2022) (Full time non-top 30)

So we are allowed 6 Dev players right. Assuming all above bold are 4 of them leaves two spots...

Lualua presumably a shout for one again unless he is promoted (which he probably won't be now with Miller and Ikavalu signed)
You'd think Siteni will train preseason with squad if he is meant to be NRL next year but maybe misses Dev squad spot to another of the slightly older guys)

Is a full time non-top 30 contract that is not a Dev contract a thing? (ie what Ferris is on, what Stonestreet, Calquhoun may be after assuming they don't win a full roster spot)

(next time you are in there editing @burgess1978 just a typo on Jordan Samrani)

Yes.

You can have as many players on NRL contracts as you like - but unless you are top 30 or development list you can't play NRL. Also - the minimum salary for development players is governed by the agreement with the NRLPA ($60k plus match payments) whereas someone outside the top 30 on a contract which is not on the development list just takes whatever deal they can negotiate. In that sense being on the dev list is preferable for the player because it is guaranteed money. For 2020 the Sharks had a few extra guys in the bubble on "train and trial" deals outside the development list. Pele was one; he was only added to the top 30 for 2021.

The "train and trial" contracts we usually refer to are actually "pre-season only" NRL contracts, which will be either for an 8-10 week period only or could extend through to the end of the NRL pre-season.

People get hung up on the idea of a "development contract" but the development list is just the old second tier cap with a new name. i.e. you can have as many players under contract as you like if you are happy to pay them, but there is a cap of ~$400-450k for players outside the top 30 who can be called on if/when you can't cover injuries out of the top 30 - but you need permission. The only difference is the new rule allowing them to play after a certain date/round, which didn’t exist under the “second tier cap”. You always had to ask permission under that system.

Also fixed the typo. Thanks mate.

The hooker looks good. Won best player in QCup. Burgess should be able to give more.

Happy we have what appears to be some good depth at hooker this year.
Agreed. I think Braileys biggest issues last year was probably playing too much football and not having enough of a challenge for his spot.

With this guy and McInnes Brailey won’t get away with coasting.

Busy this morning. I’ll give you a rundown soon.

Short version: good in attack; also plays in the halves; is fiery; better player than Paterson.

Iro is shown in training photos. I’ll add him to the “other” list. Good to see RR back healthy!
