A simple press release on the Storm website would have been more than sufficient for the players they have re-signed for one year.

They are all for 23 …I’d say they will use the money for 24 for Munny

This. They're tying up what they need to so they know what can be spent on retaining Munster.

No need to announce it the way they did with those players re-signing

Ok, whoever had this idea needs a good talking to, this much build up for fringe first graders is pretty much guaranteed to irritate people who had every reasonable expectation that a big signing was being announced with that much fan fair.

Does anyone know how many players we have signed in our top 30 for next year?

Well this was certainly a strange exercise. Whilst I'm really pleased that we've locked in these guys, I don't think any of them are in our first choice 17 next year.

As others have said, in the past we would just have a statement on the website for this.

Am getting a bit worried that we haven't heard anything about big Nelson's contract. He's been unbelievable this season.

Great that the club has gotten a bunch of contracts sorted. But man, there's a lot of very disappointed fans due to how they hyped this..... and honestly, that's not fair on the guys we just resigned, they've worked for and earned their extensions, it's not their fault the social media team went OTT.

Did we just sign every player under 6foot tall?
