If Perham is the gun people are picking then he should be in a development contract for 2 years to get the long term 10% discount in the future.
Just reviewing the team namings - there have been 26 total players named so far this season. The 22 named round 1 https://www.nzwarriors.com/threads/nrl-2018-round-1-warriors-vs-rabbitohs-team-list.60588/
plus Mannering, Vete, Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad and Satae. Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad being the only one of the 26 to not actually make the final 17 so far.
So there's still 4 spots up in the air from a mix of Beale, Ayshford, Lawton, Cherrington, Santo, Perham, Roache, Bell.
My money would be on Beale, Ayshford, Lawton and Roache being the final 4 unless they managed to find out about Roache's injury before confirming him.
Not if he was signed before the injury - Raiders made a big stink of it since they lost Hodgson during the world cup but they still have to count him under the cap for this season.
Pretty sure we got Blake Ayshford for peanuts. Last chance saloon we were. Not sure if he was ever upgraded though? You would think he was part of the full squad.Hard to imagine Blake isn't in there. He's not a star but he's been a solid performer when many others have let us down
Reality is 99.99% of fans don't give a shit. I'll harass Cameron George next time I see him at a game...I know it's not a major thing to the clubs but the interest of transparency for fans... wouldn't it be great if they had to nominate 26 players by the start of the season. 27 and 28 to be confirmed round 6 and the final two before the June deadline. Or something similar. As fans who invest in gear and tickets etc it would be nice to think we would be up to date with this sort of stuff. Shit I'd even be happy if we could some clarification (that's explained in a simple way that even dummies like me can understand) of exactly how the rule works. Appreciate some smarter cookies than me on here will have a better handle on this
I thought I read clubs need to name 29 by now? Saw an article the Titans are stuggling as it is unfair to sign players that are not in their long term plans. One year contracts? Their coach also said its hard for the rural clubs like them and Newcastle. Everyone has a poor me recruitment excuse in this competition.
