    I just realised that Gower is our only current player who was alive when we won our last premiership. Carry on.

    Does that count as grand final winning experience?

    Mahoney extends:

    2019
    Utility: Gutherson (25), Salmon, Smith, Takairangi (30)
    Fullback: French (23)
    W/C: Ferguson, Hoffman (31), G.Jennings, M.Jennings (31), Leleisiuao (22), Sivo
    Half: Brown (19), Moses (25)
    Hooker: Mahoney, Pritchard (25)
    Edge forward: Davey (28), Gower (34), Lane, Ma'u (31), Moeroa (24), Niukore (23)
    Tight forward: Alvaro (26), Brown, Evans, Kaufusi (20), Mannah (31), Paulo, Stone (22), Terepo, S.Utoikamanu (19)

    2020
    Utility: Salmon (21), Smith (28)
    Fullback: -
    W/C: Ferguson, G. Jennings (27), Sivo (27)
    Half: -
    Hooker: Mahoney (22)
    Edge forward: Lane (26)
    Tight forward: Brown, Evans (28), Paulo, Terepo (29)

    2021
    Utility: -
    Fullback: -
    W/C: Ferguson (31)
    Half: -
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: -
    Tight forward: Brown (28), Paulo

    2022

    So we (officially) have 30 merkins in next year's squad, though Brown and Sutoikamanu are probably on development contracts.

    It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes Brown to agree to an extension. If he wants to play first grade in round one he’ll need to sign a new contract. If the little merkin resists an extension we'll know he’s up to something. Hopefully we don’t have to throw the bank at an 18 year old halfback just to get him to agree to an extra year or two.

    Does this mean that we need to release someone to sign Issac Luke ? Or no if Utoikamanu remains on Development contract ?

    I’m pretty sure Utoikamanu won’t get in the top 30 this year. Probably why his old man was having a sook.

    We may be hoping to get by with our current top 30 stocks for the first half of the year and get Stefano playing against men in NSW Cup. Come 1st July we will hopefully be able to play him in 1st grade despite being on a development contract. It’s a pretty good ploy actually.

    At 19 there’s no reason we would need him to play (which is the case with top 30 players). But yeah, if he’s ready by mid year we can give him a run.

    With the smiles on those two faces do you think Bernie told him, "Righteo, let's go out, I'll shout the blow and hookers!"
