No mention of it being covered so I assume no.

Is it correct to assume the Flegg side playing all home games at Campbelltown this year unless they are on the same time as 1st grade?

They will be if the stars align with the coverage. I’ll use the Sharks as an example, Newtown is their Intrust side and will never play at Shark park because their home ground is Henson park so the Flegg will play beforehand
So there is a chance a game might be televised. The NRL and Fox have dropped the ball with this one!

Is the competition being televised?

In 2018 FOX LEAGUE and Channel 9 are increasing their commitment to the NSWRL’s blue-ribbon competition, the Intrust Super Premiership NSW. At this stage there is no plan to telecast the Jersey Flegg competition but NSWRL.com.au may live stream select matches throughout the season including the finals series.

This looks like a much stronger team than the one that played the Sharks. If those were our backup players then there's no wonder we got smoked.

Halves still the weak spot but at least the backs have some firepower on paper at least!

Mikaele and McIntyre will add muscle to the pack too, hopefully the rest of the pack can shape up around them...

I like his size in the centres. and potential combination with Gibbs will be something to watch out for during the season. Craig WIlson should be able to get the forwards firing and hopefully he can develop young Seyfarth who at 6ft 4 or 5 has a ton of potential.

Pawsandclaws, how do you rate Gibbs?? and can Lemuelu and Gibbs be our first-grade centers in time.

It might, but coach will give his halves first shot and that's fair enough. Lemuelu is a ball player and can create something for any of his team mates. Whether that's putting his winger away or linking up in a more traditional playmaking role we'll have to see.

Depends how the WT see him too. If they see him as an outside back capable of playing NRL in the next year or two then play him where they seem him developing. Don't hinder his development by playing him in a position just to fill a gap.

But then he can play anywhere from 1-6, he's got good size, speed and skills. At this stage i'd have him ahead of Gibbs, but then i've got no idea on how they train. From his interviews Connelly sounds very level headed and determined, but you never know how much of those articles are scripted/coached...

Thanks, Balmain Boy. Just hope he is part of the clubs plans for the future. As he got the skill set and size we need.
