Treymain Spry has signed with Redcliffe in Q Cup. Good player who can't seem things in order off the field.

How many more headknocks in him though?
This isn’t a complete non factor but I think gets overblown a bit.

Ponga was being medically retired by some fans last season. Graham had plenty saying he’ll never lace up again and he came back - people were saying he is gone while him and Boyd had spoken and Graham knew where he was at was nothing like where Boyd was when he retired.

There’s no fixed number that finish a player, but obviously the more the accumulate the greater chances.

Keary played 24 games last season and 21 the season before, averaging 78 and 77 minutes. Season before was an ACL.
Hopefully for Keary’s sake the bad patch is well behind him.

Gary Dover said on Sharkcast that the club is announcing another re-signing soon. Not Williams, but someone who played both trials.

Possibly Tuks, since nrl.com already let the cat out of the bag on that one. Could be someone else though.

Tuks looked good, you'd be happy with that

Vea'ila was impressive.
Would be happy to upgrade Tuks to to 30 and put him into dev list.

Happy with this. Would love Williams to get it done before the season too if possible.

That only leaves - Berrell, Bradbury, Burns, Hiroti, Iro, Puru and Taukamo. If Hiroti gets another chance this year I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a Tracey-like contract elsewhere. I'd like to see Iro realise his potential with us rather than elsewhere, but if he can't break in early this year surely he'll move on. Whether or not that will be a loss will remain to be seen. Bradbury still young too, so can probably extend him.

For sure. Get Jack signed. The rest they can decide on later. Taukamo can't sign elsewhere until after round 6 but the rest are fair game now if someone else wants to chase them. Would like to see Taukamo spend those first 6 weeks at the Jets (imo this is likely, since they have Ison to play fullback in Flegg).

Note also that the Sharks don't need to add anyone to the dev list to be compliant. Minimum is four, which they have currently.

If they do add someone though, I reckon Healey might be higher on the list than Vea'ila. Rodwell, O'Kane and Hosking are all T&T so a chance of landing there too. Vea'ila looks a good prospect though.

Healey probably makes the most sense tbh

Apparently he was signed by the Roosters at 15.
He seems like a pet project for the Coach, not surprised he is signed and quite happy about it. Don't think it is out of the realms of possibility he makes his NRL debut off the bench for us. Espcially given the likelihood of injuries.

Couple of ex Sharks pathways players have popped up in Q Cup with the Sunny Coast. Kyle Paterson and Kai Parker.

Kyle Paterson had a couple of years off and is coming back. Kai Parker was Flegg in 2022 and played for the Jets last year.

Parker is still listed as a player for the Jets on the NSWRL website so I take it they haven't updated it cause they still have Connor Tracey too

Why the move to QLD for Kai? From those parts up north or no contract for 2024?
