    Not by me merkin. The rumours thread is full of baseless accusations about our juniors and how our club has failed to do this and that. However as many have pointed out, the re-focus on juniors started years ago and the kids who were identified in their 14s are now 17/18/19/20. Rome wasn’t built in a day etc.

    I think there are some more recent concerns regarding the organisation / structure / staffing of our juniors. I think it was @Noise who explained some of this a few weeks ago (I might have the wrong source).

    True. I found it....it was emjaycee talking in the armchair coach / selector thread (April 15) about our reliance on sports high schools and problems arising from that.

    Delbiy also mentioned that DA didn’t do such a crash hot job when it came to Junior districts either.

    Yeah and Smith but they also took some recruitment guru there to stop the best young juniors going to Aussie clubs

    The one on the right looks like he didn't work out.
