    LUKE SAMOA is born 1988. Ex Wavell boy & Norths St Josephs junior. He played some Q Cup for Norths last year but mainly Colts U19. He was on a Storm contract but let go by them. I am told that he & Kevin Carmichael did not get along.

    Panapa is a big, agile kid who is good on his feet but is more likely to play in the second row or at lock. He isn't really a 5/8 but has the skills to play there if need be. He was probably the best colt for Wynnum in the FOGS colts competition last season. Dodds is a prop or second rower and went well last season in colts for Wynnum along with Guy Ford, who came down from St Brendans Yeppoon I believe. Cotter has had a few seasons in colts now and is deceptively quick and quite strong, although he doesn't look very big.

    What happened to Rodney Davies? Got picked for the FG trials last season and QLD u19s. Pretty sure he was a regular scorer for Aspley till he got injured...

    So I take it Brisbane aren't too interested in the U20's and prefer the talent to develop in the QLD Cup? Kind of funny to see RU officials crying over players they never really 'owned' ie Davies and Hunt both on RL scholarships.

    He is not even close to top 25. (Probably never will in my opinion)

    The Broncos are probably playing him in Q Cup. Players who they rate are within a year of possibly playing NRL are being placed in Q cup & won't play NYC.

    Troyden Edwards & Jacob Fauid are two that I know who have been told that they won't play NYC. If David Taylor loses form he won't play NYC either. The Broncos will have a lot of 18yos playing NYC.
