So the NRL have released the final team lists for the season and we only have 29 merkins in our 2022 squad. I didn’t think that was permitted. Could we have paid a portion of one of next year’s merkins (eg. Hopgood) this year?



They also have Josh Tuipulotu on the development list so it may not be up to date
