    There ended up being so much news to put into one episode, but that’s why we have two episodes per week during the season. 😁

    As always, thank you gents. I don’t mind Jamayne Isaako but for one year? I’d consider Hayze Perham as an option for one wing. If only so that the forwards don’t need to learn a new name. But I’m cautiously optimistic that whoever ends up taking Haze’s spot will do well. I am looking forward to the NRLW. My prediction is the Blue and Gold will never fold and the women’s team will win the comp inspiring the men to do the same.

      If we don’t recruit then we might have to look at positional switches. The strength of each of the other NRLW teams, or rather the strength of the combinations, is the great unknown

        One requires an appropriate Rosetta Stone to uncover the mystery of Parramatta’s lower grades this season.

          There was a Flegg trial on Sunday last week, and hopefully the three grades can play tomorrow – fingers crossed the weather doesn’t force matches to be cancelled or shifted
