Frustrating that Schuster is no longer listed in the 'Top 30' on the Manly Website. Who makes such a mistake? Has he signed or not? I have message the club about it on Facebook.... I assume they wouldn't reply to such a message, but I really want to know the details with Schuster. He is a player that we can't lose.

Relax people .... there is 4 months to go before we have to name a top squad .... I am sure Dessie is still wrestling with about 10 possibles V probables .....

A part from a list of contracted players .... why would you be making decisions on your top 30 ... 4 months before you had to ....

Fukken millenials and your instant gratification worldview .... the club will announce their top squad when they want to ....

mumble mumble moan piss ... bloody numbnuts !

I hear you, but why is it even a requirement of the NRL that teams name anyone right now?

I don't think it is .... I thought the first time a club had to name a squad of 28 was in late Feb or March ..... @HappilyManly and her cheerful team of nubile researchers will know for sure and certain .....

Good news.
It really is a little poor of the club though. Naming him in the squad then removing him. Amateur hour.

Each club must name a squad of minimum 24 now as the 1st of Nov starts the new NRL year.
Clubs then have until March 1 to register 29 players before top 30 squads are locked in at the end of June next year.

Whoever decided to withhold all this signing news and then allow leaks to get into the media needs to rethink the process a little.

November 1 signals the start of rugby league's new financial year with each club confirming a minimum of 24 contracted players for next season.

Thanks Happily .... confirms what I thought .... I think there is a strong distinction between "contracted" players ... and who is in the top squad ......

Development players and some juniors are contracted to the club but that doesn't mean they are in the top 30 ..... pretty sure we won't know for sure who is in the top squad until late Feb ....

I find it extremely interesting how short we are on hookers in our squad. Apart from Fainu we have no recognised hooker on our books and again No Zac Docker Clay or Eddie PNG in our development squad. As we seen last year though we can call upon Blacktown players ahead of top 30 contacted players if we have no one available in certain positions. I feel there must be a reason to have ZDC and possibly Eddie PNG in Blacktown instead of development squad. Seems like it could be a smart strategic play by Des and the boys. We have 1 spot to fill in our 30, that spot MUST go to a hooker (Granville or Levi) are a must!

Top 30 doesn't have to be finalised for months - even then you can cut players after the March 1 top 29 deadline. So what they name now can and will change

I feel reassured by Des and Crusher being on the job that a solution is in the pipe line.
