Zorba mentioned it today,but it was actually posted on facebook a little while back that Manly have signed Caleb Pese on a 2 year deal.He is not technically a junior kiwi rep,but he was named in their under 18 side(jr kiwis is a different side).He is from the warriors flegg side and has played centre and lock mainly,not sure where we are looking at him playing but will be in our flegg side next year.
NRL.com spoke to Bateman in the nation's capital on Tuesday ahead of this weekend's grand final against the Sydney Roosters, with the Raiders back-rower conceding he was likely to consider his options in the off-season if he was unable to gain an upgrade.
Bateman still has two more years to run on his deal with the Raiders, but recently acquired the services of player manager Isaac Moses.
Bateman's deal with the Raiders is worth between $350,000 and $400,000 – with the 26-year-old likely to attract double that money if he was granted permission to negotiate with rival NRL clubs.
Looks like Solomone Kata has moved to rugby with the brumbies,Jaimin Jolliffe a prop has moved from Sharks to raiders(playing in todays state league final against Burleigh),Kyle Paterson a hooker from Raiders is moving to Sharks and Previously Jack Hetherington who was moving from Panthers to Raiders is staying put.
This is from the NRL official site and can't confirm anything....They have Lachlan Croker as signed through 2021,Cust signed through 2020,Keppie signed through 2021 and Olakau'atu signed through 2021 with a club option for 2022.The rest of the squad contract lengths look spot on so don't know if they have re-signed on quietly or just been updated or just B.S.

A chronic shoulder injury threatens to force @SamBurgess8 to consider premature retirement with his playing future hinging on how he recovers during the off-season. https://t.co/M14hdB3LAZ via @MichaelChammas
Hearing Warriors five-eighth Blake Green may have a had a tour of the Panthers Academy yesterday. Not sure if both parties have mutual interest or not (as he still has a year to run on his Warriors deal), but would be a good back-up half if Penrith were to sign him.
