    Our club currently seems to have a sense of direction and astute leadership we haven’t seen in god knows when, if ever. Long may it continue. No point pissing and moaning over nothing, enjoy it.

    I knew he wouldn’t be going anywhere. Well done to our club.

    I wonder where he will be in 7 years. Captain of our club or a distant memory like Tim Smith ?

    Tim Smith couldn't tackle and he had no running game at all. Was only a matter of time till teams watched footage and worked him out.

    Great news for the club! We have a potent halves pairing.

    In a position to have a good crack at the Premiership for 2020. BankWest will be a fortress.
    Shame to lose so many juniors recently but I am sure Anthony Fields will have already signed a few here and there. How relevant is being successful in Matt’s and Ball anyway. It will be interesting to see how Flegg and Canterbury Cup side go but at the end of the day it’s the top 17. We can have a good go next year.

    Barring major injury, 650k in 2023 will look that cheap for the kid that we'll be upgrading his contract well beforehand if we have any intention of re-singing him for 2024 and beyond.

    The kid has the fundamentals of the game down pat, there are no flaws I can see and he will only improve with more experience and confidence in his game.

    His back is his only weakness atm, and he’s just 19. 650k will be huge unders by 2023.

    At the least with his back the club should be really aware of exactly where it's at, so whilst shit happens, there should be no surprises there.

    When was the last time Parramatta has not 1 but two gun halves? Would 01 count?

    He is ok. Unsure about terrific.
    Started to kick a little more which was a good sign. But I mainly see a guy who passes and has a crisp pass but rarely runs or darts from dummy half.
    Makes a lot of tackles and is a pest but close to the line gets pushed off a little to easy.
    I reckon 250k- 300k MAX is about his worth.
    Never seen this Schneider kid. But if he is decent he make take Mahoneys spot by 2021

    What is John's actual role?
    Is it a once a week at training gig with halves for an hour or two or is he part of the attacking coach role and will be there on game days?

    I doubt he'd do game days, what with his media commitments.
