Sullivan to stay with the Cherrypickers

Mitchell Sullivan didn’t have the best start to his move to Group Nine but has decided to stay for another season with the Young Cherrypickers.

The New Zealand front rower suffered a nasty ankle injury less than a fortnight after joining the Cherrypickers.

He sustained a sickening compound fracture of the ankle in his second game against Tumut.

Despite the early season setback Sullivan is one of a number of Young players who have committed to the club for the 2017season.

He joins fellow front rowers Aaron Slater and Kyle Richens in re-signing as has fullback Thomas Bush.

Outgoing captain-coach Neil Thorman is yet to decide on his future, with staying on as a player one of his options.

President Robert Bush said the club is not aware of any departures and is hoping to announce some new faces within the next fortnight.
