There's way too much of players wanting these days.
That's one of the things that makes Storm so consistent, is the players who play for each other and are genuinely interested in what's best for the team.
The difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers is that mechanical engineers
design weapons, while civil engineers design targets.

Jacks is 26 next year. He's our veteran half.

Luke Kelly is off contract... Might turn into a decent depth signing if he can apply himself to a solid preseason.

Otherwise I'm hoping Cooper stays on as halves coach and helps the younger lads with their development.

John Sutton apparently is still looking for a new contract so could be a decent signing. Can cover backrow too

On NRL360 they said that Sutton instructed his manager to only deal with Souths and just get a deal done. Apparently not interested in other NRL clubs.

Either way, not someone that would bring a whole lot to our club IMO.

Patrick Kaufusi confirmed by club, just waiting for cooling off period to pass for official announcement.
