Huth presses on despite setbacks

He was named the Jersey Flegg Player of the Year for 2019, and now Luke Huth is pushing for a first-grade birth.

This comes despite the 20-year-old rake admitting he has struggled with issues surrounding his life as a type-one diabetic.

Huth’s courageous nature was not lost on Newcastle Herald scribe Barry Toohey, who penned an in-depth article on the Lakes United junior following an intimate one-on-one chat.

"Most diabetics would have four insulin injections a day but while I'm training, I can sometimes have as many as eight and I'm testing myself 15 to 20 times a day which is four or five times the average," Huth said.

“I was close to stopping playing footy altogether, that's how big an effect it had on me for up to two years.

"Every day was trial and error and learning different ways of how to deal with it and cope with it and I hid it a fair bit back then. I didn't want people to know that I even had it.”

Saulo’s defining season

He’s been biding his time for two seasons, but Pasami Saulo knows 2020 could shape as the most important year of his career.

Off-contract in November and with six first grade games to his name, Saulo is keen to fill the void left by James Gavet’s departure to Huddersfield.

With a partner and two young children to support, Saulo is ready to push for a permanent place in Adam O’Brien’s side, with Herald journalist Robert Dillon sitting down with the young prop to discuss his goals for 2020.

 "It's my last year, so I have to work hard to earn another year, or hopefully a few more years," Saulo said.

"It's something to work towards and gives me a bit of motivation.

"Newcastle is my home, and I wouldn't want to leave it."
