    Options

    Gutherson
    Taka
    Parry
    Hoffman
    W.Smith
    Salmon

    Having a backline like this

    Bevan
    Ferguson
    Mj
    Guth
    Gjennings

    The defense would be very solid with this option. If we have Tepai,Lane,Niakuore,Manu in 2nd row we also have great defense. The only risks will be Jnr in middle and Moses. The rest of the side has no weakness in defense.

    Whats the deal with Salesi Fainga. He trains with the Nrl squad but to old for 20s. Any other guys in same boat as hima.

    Lets see how he goes during the season.

    Sounds a bit like JL saying some one is batting well in the nets, problem is we dont win test matches in the nets.

    Mahoney is also too old for Flegg but not in the top 30. There doesn't appear to be any age restriction on development squad contracts.

    MJ has always been the type when not much to play for he doesnt put in. Why clubs punt him. He was far from terrible.

    He was ranked 12th for tackle breaks of centres. 12/32 in a side who come last.Had he been in the Roosters or Storms side i reckon he would of been top 6.
    Only Kelly,Lalilua and Esan Master had more the MJ from sides outside of top 8.

    I'm sure nobody ever won anything if their players weren't at least performing well at training. It's not everything but it's a requirement, and at this stage of the year it's all we've got.

    It seems odd if Mahoney,Brown and Stefano arent promoted. How many spots free?

    Well there are currently 30 listed in the NRL profiles on the eels website - including Mahoney, Brown & Stefano. Not sure if that is an indication the 3 have been promoted and we now have a full squad. Someone said those 3 were not listed on the profiles page last week, there was only 27 then

    I believe there’s still three spots left.

    They were listed last week. They have profiles because they are the only three with development contracts. All the other kids (Parry, Faingaa et al) are fighting for the remaining development spots. Obviously if Brown or Mahoney are promoted to top 30 it’ll free up more places.

    Think Brown, Mahoney and Stefo are the players on development contracts, and can’t we have 6 development contracts?

    While considering parry, Dunster, Schneider are still
    able to play 20’s this year, they are probably contracted to the club with a 20’s contract. But they are also “trialling” for a development contract,

    It’s appears Faingaa is the only player not contracted and is trialling for a “playing contract”, but probably has some type of contract to enable him to train during the off-season.

    So you can play guys in top 30 and your 3 developments guys? Or just top 30

    It's the NRL? They'll think up the rules some time late July/early August

    Couldn't last year needed dispensation ,

    So if the same this year, if we go into the season with Pritchard as the only recognised hooker and Mahoney in development squad, once Pritchard gets injured I guess we apply for dispensation on account of having no other viable alternative?

    You think they'd go for that during round 1?
