Yes, I am concerned. I don't agree with the strategy of not signing players until February.

The only players I am aware that the Bears have signed is Tom Freebairn and Jackson Williams. It does not inspire much hope.

Says more about the contract arrangements

With Souths signing 36 players now rather than 25

That almost a full RG squad

Plus how many U20s were on more than 2 year arrangements

From recollection Souths signed full time 31 players for the NRL squad in 2017.

In 2018, it will be 30 full time players plus 6 development players who essentially U20s players, so it will be similar to 2017.

What concerns me, is that Norths will need to sign at least 10 players to fill the NSW Cup team, but we have not got any quality players on our books at the moment.

If Norths don't sign enough quality players for NSW Cup, then the U20s will need to step up and it is likely that they will not be up to it in an open age competition (see Adam Doueihi's 2017 season), and at the same time weaken the U20s team which has a good change of being successful.

Jalen Reweti (wing) from Souths u20s will be in the 2018 ISP squad.

Keaon Koloamatangi (2nd row) from Souths u20s will be in the JF squad.
