When do the they arrive and what type of pre-season camp does Baz run? Hoping its similar to the Panthers or the Storms.... A lot of our players were unfit. Can't wait to see JAC in our colors.

Younger players start back in 1st November and older players get an extra few weeks off depending on age/experience. Ferris said in a video that the preseason will be similar to this years.

A few details in the second half of this video:

It'll be staggered. I'd like to see them make a stance and not give the guys who were in teams that didn't make the 8 time off just because they are more senior.

1st batch - Asiata, Dufty, Vaughan, Mavoni Tuifua
2nd - Josh Cook (not sure if he is in the bubble with Souths), Naden, Burton, JAC, TPJ

Contracts expire 31 October annually, so new signings will be on our books from November 1.

The RLPA agreement states players must have a specific period of break/holiday between season and pre-season training starts back up. So it depends on when they last played too. Players that didn't partipate in the last rounds will come back first, then players that did, then the last will be the GF team players. Previous years it is also affected by end of season rep games too. Vaughny could be one of the first back...
