    Chics were like that at Gymea High.

    I could never understand why they always snubbed me.

    We have made an offer to a Prop for depth and to perhaps take a bench spot. Decent player.
    Cam King was signed on minimum wage and is ok, nothing special. His NRL career isn't great but he is a decent NSW Cup player.
    Blayke Brailey was given a target of 5kg of muscle before round 1, he has hammered that now whilst working hard to keep his speed. I think people will be surprised with him.

    I believe we are looking at an outside back for depth and that is a very real chance of a 1 year extension for Aaron Gray but we are looking around.

    Moylan is being shopped around very hard, 2 clubs are interested but are baulking as we aren't offering to pay all that much of his current wage.

    Thanks for the update. Maybe West’s or Bulldogs would be desperate for a Moylan, that they’ll look past the wage chip in.

    Thank you for the info.

    As for Moylan if we aren’t desperate to shed a player to be salary cap compliant then the two Clubs looking for us to tip in more to take him off our hands can f**k right off.

    If we are looking for couple cheap players

    Jai Field - He has wraps on him, dont think he was given chance at Dragons, good utility player
    If a cheap prop either Max King he is 22 or Lloyd Perrett he is 24

    Cut your losses. Keep Dugan and have a mediocre year again and probably next year. He really is all flash and f**king no heart, none. Imagine sitting out 2 finals series lol. Johnson is a notch above him really.

    Rule number 4.

    So, turns out Moylan doesn't want to go to the Tigers - shock horror... It's obvious he doesn't have the physical or mental capacity for working/training under madge, would much prefer to stay here and be a cat for a couple of years.

    To be honest I think we are a bit too critical of Brailey on here. I wanna see how he goes as our premier #9. I thought he filled in well last year when he got his chances but as some say he's been flat in reserves so apparently that means his 100 percent shit.
    He's a youngster with a lot to improve just like Xerri in 2019. I'm sure he'll do well but we cant be throwing him under the bus if he doesn't score a try in round 1, 2020.

    Glad we signed Kingy, nothing flashy but there in case Brailey goes down.

    Hope we can give Gray another crack. Decent depth and experience if someone is unavailable for a game or two.

    Matt Moylan turns down Wests Tigers move to stay with Sharks

    Matt Moylan won’t be joining the Wests Tigers after two proposed meetings with the Cronulla star failed to eventuate.

    Under contract with Cronulla for 2020 and 2021, Moylan was recently approached by the Tigers, who felt that given Cronulla’s salary cap pressure, they could secure a cut-price fullback/five-eighth option.

    Needing to release pressure on their salary cap, the Sharks were willing to allow Moylan the opportunity to meet with the Tigers, if it meant the 28-year-old could potentially secure a deal beyond his current contract.

    Similarly, the Sharks know that at his best, Moylan can be an integral member of their backline in 2020.

    However, on each occasion that the Tigers indicated an interest to meet Moylan, the discussion was cancelled — presumably as the Tigers prioritised the signing of Latrell Mitchell over the former NSW Origin player.

    There remains a sense within the Tigers that Mitchell could still sign with the Sydney club.

    Suggestions of the Tigers interest in Moylan have been bubbling for the past month and was spiked again by Tigers captain Moses Mbye on Wednesday.

    Mbye said he wanted the Tigers to sign both Mitchell and Moylan — a recruitment drive that will now no longer eventuate.


    “Obviously they’re both really quality players, there’s no doubting that,” Mbye said.

    “If they're available and we can get them, I don’t see why you wouldn’t. If I was running the team I’d be doing the same thing.”

    However, any hope of the Tigers signing Moylan is now dead in the water.

    The Sharks playmaker has told both his teammates and his management that he has no interest in joining the Tigers and he's committed to remaining in the Shire.

    On the comeback trail from a hamstring injury that plagued his disappointing 2019 season, Moylan is back at Sharks training acutely aware of how critical his pre-season build-up is for next year.

    The Sharks have also eased significant pressure on their salary cap by the departure to the English Super League of Matt Prior.

    So you don’t want to leave the Sharks?

    Well, how’s about you start playing like you want to be here??!!?!

    Could work in our favour.

    Moylan’s been called out as a player that needs to show more and on a consistent level.

    Hopefully this makes him want to prove that he’s still a valuable addition to a team.

    Team selections will be interesting next year.

    With the recruitment of Ramien I don’t see Dugan playing centre or wing with our current options. So fullback for him.

    So Moylan is battling Dugan for the fullback job or SJ for the 5/8 job.

    If he loses out what will it be?

    Bench or Newtown?

    If you want to be here the pull your finger out and play for the badge mate.

    Get out on that field and show us you want to be a Shark.

    We looked at Jai Field but went for Connor Tracey.
    Lloyd Perrett has gone to Brisbane, not sure if the Broncos or QLD Cup.

    Moylan stays , good. Injuries aside he is a bloody good player and they win more games when he is on the park.

    At the sharks we generally experience 2 kinds of purchases.

    Guys who buy in and hit the ground running. Morris last season. Ennis. Maloney. Lewie. Prior. Heighno.

    And then the list of guys who have ability like Tim smith or Matt seers and others - they've shown they can play. But they just arent cut from the cloth to be a shark.

    Moylan strikes me as the latter.
