Discussion in 'Parramatta Eels' started by Twizzle, May 14, 2016.
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).
Nope wasn't me. I'm not up with what happens with the juniors
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.
Ah yep. I think I joined in on that conversation (from a schools perspective) once he posted
Delbiy also mentioned that DA didn’t do such a crash hot job when it came to Junior districts either.
And now that Kearney is at the Warriors there are finally decent juniors coming out of New Zealand.
Yeah and Smith but they also took some recruitment guru there to stop the best young juniors going to Aussie clubs
So are Luke and Dion French in the Eels system or did they not work out ?
The one on the right looks like he didn't work out.
The guy on the left is more confident.
Dion might be Dione.
He’s 14 in that pic
Luke didnt work out. Dion staying in Tinga until he finishes school
Look at his guns. He must've worked out a bit.
Which one is which?
Dion is the younger one on the right
