Former Manly Flegg half Harradyn Wilson and the great man, the #TolaiTaxi Jimmy Ngutlik back from an ACL injury

Jimmy had some speed from memory, good to see him back?

yes thats positive

our nsw cup side for the last 2 years has been horrendous, full of 25-26 year old guys who will neve rget near NRL. This year it looks like its going to be full of 20-23 year olds with potential which is exactly what you want.

Jimmy was the guy who was here a year or two back, got injured then went home didn’t he?

Also, interesting we have another half on the books, from a famine to a feast?

That's awesome news. Jimmy is another black flash. I hope he gets thru preseason unscared, that's his first priority.
He did his knee at the same time AD did his.
I don't know much about Luke's brother, is he a goodin?

The hope is that most of the these guys aren’t required, if the top 30+ 6 dev guys are healthy that list should be playing Ron Massey. The four I’ve left there are the ones you’d be fine to see on the team sheet.

Finau is still only 21 I think, was very highly rated prop in sharks top 30 a year or so ago. Matai a smart young half we got from the dogs. Ngutlik the PNG winger who did his ACL last pre season. Craig is on a dev deal next year but I’d say will mainly be in Flegg for 24.

There's been a bit of chatter about Gordon Whippy, do you anything about him?

Are we going to see Gordan Whippy play in the curtain raiser on the weekend?
Whippy signed with the tigers on a supplementary contract but could move up to the NRL level later in the season.
The Fijian prop, who is likened to Sony Bill Williams and is 21yrs young.
Started with the Raiders then Souths and recently made his debut for Fiji Bati alongside Jahream Bula.
I've read somewhere he's represented in swimming and athletics so he's a natural athlete but weird for a prop???
