Yeah I think that’s wishful thinking that either will get released.

What incentive does either club have to release them other than to do the players a favour in helping them get long term deals.

Both players would be outperforming their current bargain contracts that only have one year left.

Panthers in particular just lost their other starting centre (Burton) and back up (Naden). Will only have Crichton left.

I can’t see it happening.
They can have Pompey. They also have Tago and Jenkins who are high regarded

Vodafone Warriors prop Jamayne Taunoa- Brown is leaving the club to continue his NRL career with another club.

The 24-year-old 2020-2021 Indigenous All-Stars front rower was intially signed on a train and trial contract with the club before earning a fulltime deal for the 2020 season.

“Jamayne has asked for a release from his current contract and it has been granted,” said Vodafone Warriors recruitment manager Peter O’Sullivan.

“Unfortunately we were unable to offer him a contract beyond 2022 so, with his best interests in mind, we’ve reluctantly agreed to let him go so he can accept a long-term offer for his future and security. We thank him for his service to the club and wish him well moving forward.”

Awesome!! In POS we trust! Excited to see who we are signing now that we got quite a few spots available
 
So who are our current props? Addin Fonua-Blake, Lodge, Pene and Afoa

We’re yet to hear about Frei and Ale (who is injured for half a year).

That’s looking pretty thin on the ground now, currently with Lodge out for rd 1, we’d be looking at Frei as our 4th prop, someone who’s not currently signed and only has 1 games experience…

Our surplus of backrowers probably means someone like Tohu Harris or Ben Murdoch-Masila are going to spend more time in the middle. Katoa also spent time there in the back end of the year.

remember gus said we signing a forward so hopefully one or a couple more
 
He did well in 2020 when most of our middles were injured. Really regressed this year so 2022 was going to be case of trying to get more out of him. Can understand the clubs position of not rushing to extend him past 2022.

We are seeing a change in how the club goes about things. Previously if you were here already it was likely you would be re-signed and we'd get maybe 1-2 players coming in. They seem to be a bit more reserved it extending guys and wanting to wait to see assess their form.

Hopefully we see a few signings announced soon.
 
Considering we have nobody of any consequence off contract in 2022 I think POS is looking at 2023 as the year.
My main concern with this is after making the finals in 2018 they were talking about having the squad they want and pushing for bigger things in 2020. After 2019 fell apart I Think I then heard 2021 was going to be the year.

Think 2022 was then meant to be the year the squad is where POS wants it.

The mid year signings last year of Walsh, Lodge and Dallin Watene-Zelezniak have helped. We have Johnson and Pene coming in so 2022. Hopefully a few more.

Hopefully with the rumours of us going after a few players from November 1st for 2023 its a case of 2022 big improvement make the finals and 2023 contend for a premiership.

FYI the lyrics in this song were clearly written about POS. Dude gets what he needs when he needs it, then cuts the deadwood and moves on to the next. What a pro.

Most interesting part of that article..

Despite losing Taunoa-Brown, the Vodafone Warriors have a strong core of middle forwards in Tohu Harris, Addin Fonua-Blake, Matt Lodge, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Bunty Afoa, and Aaron Pene plus rookies Tom Ale and Jackson Frei while Bayley Sironen and Josh Curran are also options at loose forward.

Ben Murdoch-Masila is seen as a middle forward..
And we have Frei and Ale in the squad..
And Jazz isn’t mentioned as a loose forward..
