I don’t know how much it matters right now but with Harry Grant now signed with the West’s Tigers and Paul Momorvski signing with the storm I’ve now heard Storm just signed Aaron Booth as cover for the 9 position

Apparently we have agreed to terms with Justin Olam for a two year extension.

Well deserved. JO has developed nicely and is now a solid threat with the ball in hand, and without. Really proud to see him get to this point.

Like the rest of the young guys though, some regular games would be ideal to continue that development.

Good, positive news in a time of uncertainty.

Jussie has been a powerhouse for a while now in both offense and defense.

That's not to say there aren't areas of his game that need improvement...but yeah, regular game time will definitely help.

I think he's got the chance to peak as the best centre in the comp. His development over the back end of last season was nothing short of incredible.

If this is true it is very interesting, maybe a result of the, from what I'm hearing, the dire financial problems of the ARU?

The ARU were in massive trouble before the COVID-19 issue even started. Anyone about to commence a contract with them would be (and should be) extremely nervous.

Actually so annoyed at this ...I really thought he and storm would be loyal and sign him

Good luck to him and I hope he does well

Also how cool is it a North West Wolves and Northern Thunder players are now playing together (in this case just training) at the titans

I believe our salary cap is tight. Also, Chambers is back because of the closure Japan Rugby League. He has been at Aami Park. Rapana is back the raiders because of the closure. Wonder what will happen will Chambers.

I think many will share my thoughts on Young T, he has his head screwed on properly and is a great role model.. but even pre-mission he was borderline FG quality when compared to the rest of the Storm squad.

Now we have Sandor Earl who fills Young's role in the squad. Again, another great player to have around from a morale point of view but probably not quite up to the rest of the squad's standards. Although currently the standard of our backline is slightly lower than previous years which gives him the edge.
