Jonathon Rueben and Sitiveni Moceidreke: one's a speed demon - the other a giant winger. Both are on the cusp of NRL - the latter even has one start to his name: https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/n ... 9/3548031/

Never really looked solid enough for an NRL start.

Rennie/Kris is a better centre pairing than Mounties had most of last year.

So at the moment full strength Mounties looks something like this:

1. Brad Abbey
2. Michael Oldfield (Alofi Mataele / Tony Satini)
3. Sebastian Kris
4. Reuben Rennie
5. Andre Niko
6. Ata Hingano (Jack Payne)
7. Brendan O'Hagan
8. Liam Knight
9. ????? (Sam Duggan / Joel Luani)
10. JJ Felise
11. Jack Murchie
12. Makahesi Makatoa
13. Corey Horsburgh

14. Paul Roache
15. Hudson Young (Jarrett Boland)
16. Setefano Hala
17. Royce Hunt

Probably scrape into the finals but they're no longer the force they were in the last few years.
Edit:
Updated to add JJ Felise.

Pretty sure Satini was training with Canberra so he’d be a first stringer.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Still no sight of the draw. Was originally told mid-December but my email went unanswered early Jan. Harold Matthews and SG Ball came out last week.

It is the sure sign of an unprofessional organisation not to release their draws until days before a competition actually starts.

Even the junior reps draw was still not final, it still included TBAs and the competition was a week away.

After that trial and with adding Sam Williams and Starling to their side, Mounties should give it another top 4 tilt this year.
Tony Satini especially looks to have improved a lot and once Simonsson settles down and gets his bearings he should be good too.
