    In lieu of no news, could it not be presumed that the exisiting competitions remain in place as is?

    The only change I can forsee is the addition of the U20's.

    It is hard to understand how the officials of the nations in the World Cup cannot identify which clubs their players actually play with. Lebanon is the worst offender;

    Mitch Mamary is listed as Wenty, who he played with in 2016 but spent all of 2017 with Auburn Warriors.

    Elias Sukkar is listed as Wenty, whereas he started the season with CBG Wolves but returned to Auburn Warriors mid season. He played for Wenty about 4 years ago.

    Chris Saab is listed as Blacktown Workers even though he has been with Guildford since 2012 and has never played for Blacktown.

    Further, in the original 40 man train squad, Ben Chahoud was listed as Hills even though he has played for Mounties for 3 seasons and mark Daoud was listed as Asquith even though he spent 2017 with wenty.

    Similarly, Steven Howard is listed in the USA squad as Mounties but he has never played for the club.

    The NSWRL issued a press release quoting all of the above even though they operate a system that identifies which clubs players are with in all their competitions.

    I think the original list was done by RLWC's Brad Walter and they've likely copied it into their release without checking the accuracy of the lists.

    Ok. I hope their sponsors have deep pockets. They'll have to pay overs to get blokes as they won't be a feeder for any nsw cup team.
