Top 30 2018

Anyone have any idea of which players are in our top 30 for next year and those that aren’t?

Sorry if it has been done to death but nothing came up in a search.

The pressed from NZ match Ivan states when asked about JMK that he is unsigned and tigers like most clubs are sitting back to see what happens in finalising there roster, so that I assume to mean there may still be a few spots up for grabs.

If anyone know please let me know.

I had though we had signed 28 players, (plus 3 development players,) but Justin Pascoe was on twitter saying we have 29 players. So I’m not sure either mate.

1. Tui Lolohea
2. David Nofoaluma
3. Esan Marsters
4. Moses Suli
5. Mahe Fonua
6. Josh Reynolds
7. Luke Brooks
8. Ben Matulino
9. Jacob Liddle
10. Russell Packer
11. Chris McQueen
12. Elijah Taylor
13. Matt Eisenhuth
14. Chris Lawrence
15. Alex Twal
16. Josh Aloiai
17. Tim Grant
18. Sauaso Sue
19. Benji Marshall
20. Malakai Watene-Zelezniak
21. Corey Thompson
22. Taane Milne
23. Kevin Naiqama
24. Tyson Gamble
25. Robbie Rochow
26. JJ Felise
27. Matt McIlwrick
28. Michael Chee-Kam
29.
30.

We still have a couple of spots left. I’d like JMK to get one as I don’t think 2 hookers is enough to have on the books.

Yep that’s what I calculated as well. 2 seats left.

Isn’t Gamble a development player (up to 6 allowed)?

Also isn’t Tatola still under contract for next year

According to Zerotackle we have 28/30 seats filled.

Also, If we were to get to 30 players and then another one came along and we were to sign them, what would happen to the player who drops out of the top 30? What does it mean for them?

Also, of all our off-contract players, they were all announced as being released by the club. Except for Heleta….does anyone know anything more about him?

Wasn’t it mentioned Tony Tali was being offered a top 30 spot?

Remember reading it on here. Can’t remember who posted it though

Looking at that 28, our last 2 spots will surely be props. We’ve got everything else covered.

I tend to agree. Woods hasn’t had many injuries for a prop. If a couple go down we’ll be looking at JJF and State Cup players that weren’t that good this year.

Pascoe has confirmed we’re at 28 of 30 in the Q&A video with Ivan

There are plenty of options for props:

Matulino
Packer
Twal
Grant
Sue
Felise
Rochow
Eisenhuth
