Mcauley was a class performer during this year’s competition and featured multiple times in the ‘Team of the Week’ and boasts professionalism and maturity when on the footy field.

Keegan plays for the North Shore Tigers in the Auckland local competition where his development continues as he prepares for the return of the Premier competition in February 2017.

The hard running roving forward was retained by the Premiership side for his slick skills and fast pace and will be a key player for coach Warwick Kain and the Saints forward line.

Nico will once again suit up with his brother and Waitakere Magpies team mate Carlos as the pair look to win the competition for the first time.




Jordan Thompson

Thompson is a strong defender who ensures his opponents work hard for their possessions and with more experience under his belt, he will be one to watch for in 2017.

Thompson has been one of the leaders for his local Manurewa Raiders this season and will bring with him those leadership skills into the new Premiership season.
