Looks like a complete overhaul of players coming and going, new players bring more energy and an air of high expectation for most teams. Really think the Blacktown boys are semi bound once again in 2024.

Throw in the likes of James , Condon , Sykes , Dias . Also no doubt a couple of other high profile forwards if not required for i st grade at any set time .
Tui[ maybe ] , Ray Ray , Faulalo , Arthur in the backs . Matterson .
Certainly has the makings of a quite competitive reserve grade line up .
Just also naturally hope that this good depth factor is not going to be or have to be overutilized with a very serious injury toll factor again .

Don't forget Woods and Fulton who won't see 1st grade unless major injury toll.

Dias and Sykes would probably offer a bit more get up and go then Arron [ Woods ] though of course Arron can still offer good value to the club in other areas , if not on the field when needed .
Certainly some interest with the likes of Hodgson and Wakeham on the scene now , not sure if centre is the best position for Faulalo to show his real ability , maybe full back and Abbey is quite versatile . Ferris was not a bad finisher as well but looks like he has moved on .
Hank [ Parker ] would surely have to be in the starting side either at centre or edge if Burbo gets the jump on him initially in i st grade

And Jakob Arthur.

Sipley would be unlucky to miss out on the nrl 17. He was playing well at the end of last season. I guess paseka, lodge, Jake, brown, aloiai, bully.
