Sean Farrell (Souths), Dave Feao (Sunnybank), Jethro Felemi (GPS), Jack Straker (GPS) and Jack Hardy (Easts) have been confirmed to be returning to Premier Grade in 2021.
Michael Wood (Tahs trial/Shute Shield) and Chris Feauai-Sautia (Oyonnax) the only post-COVID blokes to pick up deals...
Reckon there would be a few more than those.
Reesjan Pasitoa won as a 16yo in 2017, Cayden Matehaere won as a Year 11 with Nudgee in 2008 so may have been 16.
Will put my thinking cap on. It's an interesting question :)
There is zero chance the next GPS "The Season" is at TSS. Absolutely none. Churchie, Terrace and Toowoomba all have a fair shot.
In the meantime, if there are to be games and no crowds, I hope all schools get on board with the streaming. It would suck if there was just one school that refused...

When Henry Speight and Jock Campbell are both on the field, the Reds haven't conceded a backline try.
Small sample size, but there's something special brewing out wide at Ballymore.
I interviewed them both after the Dalby trial. STORY...
Ask and you shall receive. First big player transfer of the 2020 season is Hamish Stewart to Brothers.
Stewart still hasn't fronted up to tell coaches he's leaving yet. Pretty ugly situation all round...
The battle to claim the Queensland Reds kicking tee will be the hottest in years, with seven potential snipers vying for the coveted mantle.
I interviewed Isaac Lucas to discuss who was most likely to take the tee against the Brumbies...
Signing James O'Connor has delivered Jordan Petaia a valuable mentor at the Reds, but not necessarily a centre partner.
The 19-year-old centre is certain he'll be lining up at 13 but said O'Connor's position is less clear...
Nella was back, just started the session on the sidelines with the other returning Wallabies (bar Salakaia-Loto who was right in the thick of it)
ASY graduated from uni yesterday which explains his absence
