The NSWRL, unlike the QRL is notoriously bad at announcing squad listings and gains and losses for Cup teams.

A few teams have already listed their squads on their websites, when/are we likely to see a squad listing for the Mounties?

Mounties used to be quite good in using Facebook and Twitter to get the news out... but no longer. They have no active Twitter account any longer, and their Facebook page could be much better.

When does our affiliation end? Is there any interest in Canberra to have our own team?

They’re good rugby league people, but I don’t see that district as a good fit with our own. We don’t seem to get much strong local talent from it, the area is tied up by the Eels, Dogs or Tigers. I hope we transition to our own team, based in Canberra. But while we’re affiliated, I will support the joint arrangement.

Looks like I rubbished the NSWRL too early. They've posted our squad:

Mounties

Mitch Cahalane
Riley Cheshire
Kamren Cryer
Sam Duggan
Atini afa
Elijah Hunt
Roman Ioelu
Paula Kaufusi
Daniel Kier
Anthony Layoun
Harry Leddy
Falakiko Manu
Willie Mataka
Dean Matterson
Kane McGuiggan
Jack Miller
Latia Moceidreke
Liam Mock
Kieren Moss
Alex Poitfara
Paea Pua
Reubenn Rennie
Vincent Rennie
Daniel Roberts
Tom Robertson
Tony Satini
Rydge Smith
Joshjua Tangitau
Steven Tavita
John Tohi
Lazarus Vaalepu
Jake Walsh
Matthew Whitehouse
Luke Williams
Jamin Williams
Jamon Wormleaton
Jacob Wright

Probably a preliminary training squad given the amount of players. Kieren Moss is a good pick up from Norths.

Good to see Robertson around there. Pretty surprised no one's picked him up. Looks like the prototype modern forward.

To be honest from what i watched last year he went well against bad sides. Big unit though. Might be missing one piece
