    My mail is they are planning to convert Davies into a "9" as backup for Mahoney in the short-term.

    I don't think we'll be ditching Davies any time soon. Can play hooker and I suspect that's where he'll play in reserve grade for us next season

    Any change to this apart from the departure of Brock Lamb - does that leave 26 Merkins?

    Who will fill the remaining 4 spots and will all the development contracts be utilised?
    Maybe Davies and Schneider will get upgraded to top 30. Presumably Harry Duggan and David Hollis are contracted separately under different arrangements.

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/08/10/nrl-top-30-squads-to-be-published-to-increase-transparency/

    As it stands each outfit must confirm a top 24 roster for 2019 2020 with the NRL as of November 1, the start of rugby league's financial calendar, with 29 players to be signed on when the playing season starts in the first week of March.

    Clubs then have up until the traditional June 30 deadline to sign a final player to fill their top 30 squad, with between three and six players also retained on development contracts.

    So it will be interesting to see who picks up the remaining positions. What is the cap outside of the top 30? Is there separate caps for Matt’s / SG and Flegg and another cap for CC?

    Yeah Pou, what gives ?


    Lamb, 23 later this month, is super keen to get into the "real world".

    "I just want to get into a real life and start my own stuff," Lamb said before joining training on Thursday.

    "I've done the NRL dream. I always wanted to just play a few game and I did that. Maybe in a few years I might go back.

    "I played about 40 odd games in the NRL and I'm stoked about that, I didn't think I'd even get one.

    Lawler said Lamb had never been considered in the club's recruitment plans for 2020, but everyone was thrilled to have him back home.

    "It's a surprise. Obviously we thought Lamby would be playing NRL somewhere. He got the gig at Parramatta and then we got the call saying he wanted to come back here," Lawler said.

    I'm sure he's gone, but I have my journalistic integrity to worry about. Like Claas Relotius.
