    Kudos to Peter Nolan and Kearney - It looks like the academy is doing fine!

    Just want to point out that most of the junior recruitment has been handled by Anthony Field, even when Nolan was here. He is still out and about and I am hearing that the current crop are even better, with some astute senior signings we have the juniors coming through to really do well in the next 4/5 years

    I will be going to the talent squad trails in the next couple of weeks, that's from U14 to NYC! Should be good

    Good point. Kearney and Nolan really knew how to assemble a good team to make this academy work. Anthony Field has certainly been a great asset to our club and I was so happy to see him stay on after Nolan left.
    I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes at the trials. Keep us posted mate.

    Matts will be very strong, the club has put over 30 of these boys on contract as they don't want to lose any of these U16 talents. Names to watch out for in Matts - Oregon Kaufusi, front row, Kytak Chan - wing/centre of Chinese origin , Jesse Cronin , prop and Alex Seve , half back. Lots of family names you will recognise

    I will check the Ball players and see if I can come back with some suggestions

    Excellent stuff. Ta Dells. Hopefully Peter Sharp supports the process and particularly Anthony Field.

    Kelepi is going to be a loss. Anyone who says he's a dud does not know footy. He was brilliant against the Broncos. If it hadn't been for injury he would of played first grade for sure this season. Dumb decision to let him go!

    If this Kytak goes well, he's gonna make a bucket load.

    $1 billion 3rd party sponsorships from china. $$ from Nike to promote it to the chinese. Free phone from Huawei. Realestate.com.au face of Australia to promote to china.

    BTW, was Alex Chan chinese?

    Nobody thinks Tanginoa's a dud. But judging him based on his efforts in under 20s is a bit premature as well.

    He Was injured in preseason and had a disrupted year. A few people on here questioned his attitude but that was totally incorrect!

    How do you know he doesn't have a poor attitude? Because he runs over the top of a bunch of teenagers?
