    Given Smith's announced re-signing and the rumours of Brown's extension I had a feeling we might be about to see a string of one a day retention announcements. Alvaro tomorrow? King? Either way, you know I'll be the last merkin to find out about it.

    Nathan Brown from Chinatown:

    Fullback: French
    W/C: Aukafolau (21), Auva'a (26), Davis (23), Hoffman, G.Jennings (25), M.Jennings, Leleisiuao (21)
    Half: Moses, Norman
    Hooker: King (27), Mahoney (20), K. Pritchard (24)

    2019
    Utility: Gutherson (25), Salmon, Smith, Takairangi (30)
    Fullback: French (23)
    W/C: Hoffman (31), M.Jennings (31)
    Half: Moses (25), Norman (28)
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: Edwards (30), Ma'u (31), Moeroa (24)
    Tight forward: Brown, Evans, Mannah (31)

    2020
    Utility: Salmon (21), Smith (28)
    Fullback: -
    W/C: -
    Half: -
    Hooker: -
    Edge forward: -
    Tight forward: Brown, Evans (28)

    2021
    Utility: -
    Fullback: -
    W/C: -
    Half: -

    So we (officially) have at least 15 merkins in next year's squad. But only four players for 2020 FFS! And it's looking like we will have to forfeit every game in 2021.

    2021 is an option. Doesn't say whether it's a club or player option. If it's both then it's not any different from being uncontracted (or off contract in 2020).

    You may need to bring in a system to track options as well. Colour coding perhaps? Blue for player option year, gold for club option year?

    FFS why do I need to tell how to do your f**king job

    Just like how the financial year starts in July, the contract year starts in the previous November. It's not rocket surgery FFS!
