Savage got a 2 year contact. Lonie got 1.
I'm not unhappy with this.
Just want to make sure Lonie uses this chance. And I hope the saints can make a firm decision on his playing future in 12 months. Breakout or get out.

Good to see Savage get 2 more years. Very pleasing and provides depth at the flanker/wing positions.

Guess Lonie will have to impress this year to keep his spot. Hopefully the coaches and himself can ID any issues that are stopping him take the next step. He is too good for the VFL. Players that have been written off do suprise everyone sometimes.

Savage earned the 2 years with his second half of the season. Lonie probably deserves another year as seems to be the next off the rank but unfortunately has to close the gap between good and ordinary performances. Might see a small forward traded still IMO

Quite happy re Savage. 2 years is a huge vote of confidence. Let's hope he deserves his bonus year (one was always a given).

As for Lonie, big mistake.

Gee the hate on this forum for this kid is really something. I hope to hell he has a great 2018, just to stick to the haters.

100% the right decision on both counts...

Geez some of you guys are insufferable when you've cracked the sands. Lonie has blitzed it up all season in the 2s and has gone to jelly when given the chance.

His big issues are maturity and body (combination of strength and tank).

A year is an opportunity to seriously improve on both and if he doesn't show signs then... no major harm is done
