    Half: D.Brown, Moses
    Hooker: Mahoney, McIlwrick (28)
    Edge forward: Davey (28), Fainga'a (21), Gower (34), Lane, Ma'u (31), Moeroa (24), Niukore
    Tight forward: Alvaro, N.Brown, Evans, Kaufusi, Mannah (31), Paulo, Stone (22), Terepo, Utoikamanu (19)

    2020
    Utility: Gutherson, Salmon (21), Smith (28)
    Fullback: -
    W/C: Blake, Ferguson, G. Jennings (27), Sivo (27)
    Half: D.Brown (20), Moses
    Hooker: Mahoney (22)
    Edge forward: Lane (26), Niukore (24)
    Tight forward: Alvaro (27)*, N.Brown, Evans (28), Kaufusi (21), Paulo, Terepo (29)

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

    2022
    Utility: Gutherson (28)
    Fullback: -
    W/C: Blake
    Half: Moses (28)
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: -
    Tight forward: Paulo (29)

    2023
    Utility: -
    Fullback: -
    W/C: Blake (29)
    Half: -
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: -
    Tight forward: -

    So we (officially) have 17 merkins in next year's squad, 18 if Alvaro takes up his option.

    And that's 30 roster slots filled this year.

    To leave room for a bolter? Davies was signed into ours quite late in the season.

    100% certain that Utoikamanu signed a 2y deal 19/20 at the end of 2018. He told me that personally.
    There was an article but i cannot find it atm.

    Eels uncover much-needed big man

    Parramatta have been searching desperately for big men - and may have uncovered one right on their doorstep.

    NSW under-18 prop Stefano Utoikamanu has signed a new two-year deal with the Eels and been elevated to the NRL squad for next season.

    Still only 18, Utoikamanu was man of the match for the Blues against Queensland earlier this year and has been playing in the NSW Cup for Wentworthville against grown men - a fair effort for a teenager.

    Big and strong, he’s capable of playing NRL football at some point during 2019.

    French being released means that we have a squad of 29 now ?

    I thought so too but since development players are all available now I figured it didn't matter. I assume one of them (Parry) has been brung into the top 30.

    Honestly I don’t reckon the NRL covered that. We had 30 at June 30 and now I reckon we just have 29 on 29 July
