SC Daily mentions that Schonig will be coming down after Christmas to train with the Storm.

Found this interesting from the article about Shaun Johnson...
There is speculation Johnson could end up at the Roosters in 2020 with the reigning premiers looking for a replacement for Cooper Cronk when the champion playmaker retires at the end of next year.

The Roosters were linked with a bold play for Storm star Cameron Munster — but the Kangaroos five-eighth has also agreed to terms on a four-year extenstion with the Storm worth $3.6 million, beginning in 2020.

Yep, be nice if that was announced already.

I wonder if we were keen on Johnson at all?

I would like us to make a play for Johnson. He’s one of my favourite players to watch. I don’t know how much cap space we have but you would think we’d have a bit considering we’ve lost a lot of players over the last two years and haven’t really replaced them with much, Cronk and Slater alone would of freed up a couple million and surely we haven’t used all that on upgrades for our younger guys.

Plus it would absolutely suck if he decides to join the Sharks or Roosters, I don’t want players I like playing for teams I hate.

May have been down on him over his Grand Final performance, but that is good news.

Very pumped to have that sorted. The club has made a massive investment in Munster and he now becomes the face of the club... he just needs keep his head on straight, stay focussed on the job at hand and not f*ck it up.

Cam Munster signed until 2023 or until such time as he requests a release for (family reasons)/(homesickness)/(celebrity girlfriend)/(pursuing NFL/NBA/MLB/NHL dream).
The contract situation with NRL players at the moment is a joke: the things aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

Wonder where he sits in the pecking order. Tough positions to get a run in, centre and wing, we have:

Vunivalu
Addo-Carr
Scott
Chambers
Blair
Olam
Seve

At least four and possibly as many as six of these are ahead of him. Depends how Blair, Olam and Seve are viewed against Earl by the coaching staff. I know it's all speculative, but I'd like to know.
