    Quick one.

    Guessing the fact that the Jets BRL team is not playing this year means that those players not in the ISC squad play for a local team these days ?

    Would they have made an arrangement with West Brisbane Panthers ?

    It's possible but again I don't recognize any Jets players in the Wests team. Maybe they are just keeping everyone in cotton wool for the first few weeks and then getting them in to some local/feeder games later on.

    It looks to me like Wests has a few Redcliffe players from last season in their line-up too. Not sure if that is as a feeder or if Redcliffe has released those guys. Zach Strasser is the most notable one.

    Edit - just checked - the other Redcliffe guys were all released and signed with Wests. Not sure about Strasser.

    Maybe hit up John Devine on twitter @JohnJackdevine or callingallsportsbrisbane.com. He might know where the Jets players are going.

    OK - so I asked John Devine and he reckons the Jets are definitely using the local Ipswich RL.

    I did some more digging for you.Here are the guys listed as Jets players who haven't played an ISC game yet this year. Only one of these guys has turned out in the IRL so far in the first 3 rounds but I have managed to find a few Jets players listed under TRL teams, including Denzel King (Gatton).

    Ono So'oialo (Goodna IRL)
    Chris Ash
    Mitch Koina (Wattles TRL)
    Isimeeli Hafoka
    Shar Walden
    Jesse Roberts
    Cameron Moran
    Huskie Teutau
    Hugh Sedger (Valleys TRL)
    Billy McConnachie (ACL injury)
    Tuu Maori
    Silas Redd

    It looks like they are sending some guys to either comp and keeping other guys out for now.

    I'm surprised they aren't giving Silas Redd a run somewhere to get him learning the game.
