    I am very happy that we have secured young Jayden Sullivan. The reports on him are fantastic. I have only seen highlights of him, but he looks to have a complete game for a halfback. He has a good short and long passing game, good running game and good short kicking game. I know it is a massive step to first grade and many don't make it, but at least we have him in our system. Good halves are very hard to come by. His is slightly built right now. He has even already been compared to Thurston.

    What a great job he's doing.

    Sullivan is only 17 and is still very small, so he won't be ready for first grade until 2021 at the earliest. If Sullivan can live up to expectations, then we may have to move Ben Hunt on by 2023. That is how it works these days. If someone better comes along or even someone of great promise who has their whole career ahead of them comes along, the club has to choose to keep the better one. Or maybe Hunt could finish his career at hooker, after playing there for Qld for 4 or 5 years? Here is an article I found about him. They refer to him as the hottest young prospect in the game and compare him to Thurston. You can't get any better accolades than that.

    Perhaps it’s advancing years, but I get a feeling of the Damien Chapman’s with this kid. Those with long memories know what happened there.

    Was it a very difficult signing?

    This one was..

    At first they couldn’t find a pen, then when they did find one, they couldn’t get it working (appears it was out of ink)

    Eventually just as he was about to give up and leave Millward found an old St George Bank clicker pen in his glovebox, which they used to complete the signing.

    So they wasted around 20 mins searching for pens and Sullivan’s contract has those inkless scribble scratches you cause when trying to get a pen to work.

    Oh, and Basil stepped in a lump of dog poo coming back from his car with the St George pen.

    all sounds good until the roosters decide they may need him.

    Bet his manager is getting a kick up the arse. The rorters just signed up the Walker kid for over a 100 - 150k a year and as he will not ( initially anyhow as he just turned 18 ) be on the top 30 squad so his contract doesn't come under the salary cap.

    Has there been an official announcement of this signing?

    Really hoping this is fact, as he has the makings of a very good player. By the time he gets to NRL level, hopefully by then we will have a coach as well.

    I just hope we also sign that young Brayden Gilbert from the Cowboys who also plays in the halves..

    How awesome would a halves pairing of Gilbert & Sullivan be?

    You can just imagine the Dragon Army standing there on the hill, all belting out:

    “We are the mighty Dragons of St George and Illawarra
    We’ve defeated Canterbury, Manly and Canberra
    We have different home grounds, playing in many localities
    From Wollongong to Kogarah we’ve got players in many categories”
