    He was always the more promising dummy half coming through, and that promise must still exist. But Mahoney has already exceeded the hype, at least from my perspective as an outsider. He never seemed like he would be a solid first grader by the age of 23, but he is. Meanwhile Schneider seemed to be the second coming of Cam365.

    It probably is. 2 years isn’t a long contract for the future captain.

    Perhaps we can nickname him Prince to Gutho’s King?

    So did Katoa and Wade Egan.

    I watched a lot of 20s. Reed stood out with Stone and I thought they woukd have a future. But Dargan was also seen as very good.

    Guys like Schneider and Dunster lost any chance of being a suprise packet. Same goes for Hughes and Hollis who all may of snuck the odd game off bench or atleast played against men in NSw cup. That wpuld of given the coach a chance to see which ones are going to be ready for 2021 and which won't.
    Bad timing for a guy like Alvaro. I feel his NRL career will be over. Parra will not give another gig imo. He prob won't attract interest from the UK either. Maybe a strong club will pick him up as a fill in.

    Like us?

    I reckon he’d be a good fit for a club like Brisbane who desperately need experience in their forward pack to show their current pea hearts what it takes to be a professional footballer. He’s also from up that way, isn’t he?

    He is basically the opposite of Jarryd Hayne.
