    Not really, I doubt players are just leaving for a basic junior contract.

    What are we meant to do for example (which is probably what is happening) if say the tigers/dogs offer one of our 18/19 year olds a under 20’s contract for 2020 development contract for 2021 and / or development/top 30 contract for 2022 (when they are 21/22)?

    Do we match it? Just so we can keep the player?

    Or do we have a succession plan and/or identification process in place (which potentially appears to be possible - looks like we have 4-5 players in line for development contracts who are only 19/20 this year along with a couple top 30 players who are only 21 this year) and follow that ?

    Also MON may appear to be slow, but gee its not easy to simply match a offer from another club with a development contract for 2021 or 2022, there is a bit to consider.

    Exactly. While the juniors can help you get a bit of cap value in the early years of their NRL career (if you are lucky), a large program can become a complete distraction for an NRL club (and the people who generously donate their time to helping it out).

    However, given that a club has decided to consider offering a deal to player X, introducing a system that causes unnecessary delays in making an offer doesn't have a lot of upside. I guess it depends on what aspects of the system cause those delays and whether they are necessary, and what you do with the resources / time that aren't being devoted to re-signing juniors.

    Don’t know anyone who was against us signing Paulo, Lane and Fergo.............. And after all these years of shit you would hope they finally are.

    Couple of photos of Schneider in the background from today’s session (I think it’s him). He’s not huge but I don’t think he looks small for a hooker. I’m guessing he’ll be our back-up hooker in 2020.

    He's a bit taller than Dyl Brown and probably weighs around 90kgs now.

    Salmon looks a bit like Super Morgs in the first photo. Wondering how far that similarity extends.

    He actually converted to Islam during Ramadan. He's now known as Salman Salmon.

    Parry is the really blurry guy in a different shirt on the right in the first photo. He’s standing next to what looks like a building in the background. That’s actually Hollis’ left leg

    To be honest, we haven't lost too many in these circumstances recently.
