Not likely, he’s nearly 33 and will be nearly 34 when his ban is up

Catalans could go for him... 😉

Just a reminder, this is due to be Suliasi Vunivalu's last season with Storm before moving on to play Union for a lot of money.

He has a a lucrative Super Rugby deal with the Queensland Reds on the table for him for 2021 and beyond.

He has committed himself to a full on season - he says there'll be no slackening off for him this season.

 He's returning to the code he played as a youngster in Fiji. The hamstring problems he had seemed to settle him on the move which he sees as the best deal for the future of himself and his family. (He signed a deal in late November reportedly worth $1.8 million)

Newcastle Knights have signed Tyronne Roberts-Davis.

The flyer, who joins the Club on a train and trial opportunity in November, has agreed to a one-year-deal.

At the age of 22, Roberts-Davis spent 2019 with Burleigh before joining the Knights on the promise of little more than a chance and he took it with both hands.

Brisbane Broncos have stood down forward Joe Ofahengaue for two NRL games after he pleaded guilty earlier this month to being in charge of a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol level in excess of the legal limit.

The Broncos took the decision to stand down the player after taking into consideration that it was not his first driving offence in recent years.

Newcastle Knights have re-signed centre Enari Tuala for a further season.

Having linked with the Club only three months ago on a 12-month deal, the 21-year-old has wasted little time impressing.

So much so, his hard work and positive attitude has been rewarded with a new contract.

Storm have set their sights on a player rated among the best young centres in England.

Jake Wardle, a powerhouse 21-year-old speedster from the Huddersfield club, has caught the eye of Storm scouts in the UK.

The Storm are believed to be set to make Wardle an attractive offer to join them for 2021.

Kiwi prop Renouf To'omaga is shaping as a bolter to make the Bulldogs' top squad for round one.

To'omaga has played just 13 games in his two years at Belmore but has done the hard yards over the summer and dropped several kilos.

He shone in the Bulldogs' 30-18 win over Cronulla in PNG a couple of weeks ago, scoring one try and setting up another, and was also solid in the loss to the Raiders last weekend.

That looks a fairly weak team to me, probably the weakest Warriors side for some time. I can't see them finishing anywhere but bottom 4. Green, Blair are both past their best. Nikorima is inconsistent. Burr, Egan are average. And that's the spine. They're really relying on RTS again

Maybe this bloke would have helped them. Too late now, Eels have locked him in for another couple of years:

Quote

Parramatta Eels have landed a major signing coup on the eve of the new season with backrower Shaun Lane committing to the club until the end of 2023.

Apparently Lane’s new three-year deal is worth around the $1.3 million mark and ensures the Eels will start 2020 with a settled left edge.

Raiders prop Royce Hunt has signed a one-year deal with the Cronulla Sharks, thus completing their roster for the 2020 season.

Hunt has been training with the Sharks since November as the 24-year old gets another opportunity under John Morris.

He made his debut for the Raiders in 2017 but only notched one first-grade game.

Yes so very sad.

From Gordon Tallis who is full of praise for Carl as a player and a man:

Quote

“It’s really sad. I think it was Sam Burgess’ dad that was the first time I’ve heard about it [MND],” added Tallis.

“On Tuesday Adam Maher, who played for Cronulla, passed away with the same disease. I know all Charlie’s teammates will rally around him.

“We’re trying to do something with the Cowboys, Broncos and Queensland RL. Between those organisations, I hope that we can for Charlie and his family.”

Webb is the latest former athlete to be diagnosed with the condition. South African rugby union player Joost van der Westhuizen passed away with the disease in 2017, while AFL great Neale Daniher and England rugby league international Rob Burrow have also been diagnosed with the condition in recent years.
