We should be patient with our remaining spots and cap space.

Never know …teams might be desperate to offload a player or a player keen to leave. Happens a lot

Thoughts on what players we should add - think maybe 1 more prop, another half and a second rower.
You are missing Metcalf.

Edit. Sorry bort. Your post didn’t show up on my first refresh.

Dykes, Lualua, Martin and Rivett all confirmed on development list.

The misdirection around Rivett continues. NRL.com "official" list says he is contracted to 2022.

In an interview in October 2020 Rivett said "I signed a 3 year deal".

Should always ask the recruiter to lift their hand off the page before you sign. Even if they look like they're just leaning on the table.

I listened to a Podcast interview with Tyler Slade today. Sounds like he is part of the larger squad of "non top 30" Sharks players.

Apparently he was considered a huge prospect at the Warriors. Played 20's young, played NSW Cup young, signed a 4 year deal to train with the NRL team... but by his own admission got complacent. He's expecting to be with the Jets this year and to continue pushing for a top 30 spot.

It's by his manager. It's only available on Apple. " IDP Podcast with Richard White"

Maybe it’s just me but when you’re given a great opportunity like this lad was how do you get complacent? Crazy.

Yeah kinda this. He said that in hindsight the 4 year deal was the worst thing for him. Pretty similar to what Talakai said about his time at Souths.

Australian is reporting Blayke has re-signed for 4 year
Is there an 'Official Whipping Boy' tag we can put on his thread now? Just needs a bowl cut and an NFL jersey...
Bet he has the last year in his favour... Or our favour...

Maybe it is in the clubs favour but we should spend the length of the contact complaining that it might be in his favour anyway
If possible I'd like to confirm that it's in our favour then complain that we're thinking of keeping him for three years
