    I REALLY Like the look of this fella!!

    Youngs a tough comp aswell, I mean TOUGH as nails, so at the very least hell be one TOUGH player for us!
    He was playing against men so I think he might even get a game this season...I cant wait to see it what a damn budding superstar! I love that area also very excited to see how he goes, anyone know what comp or grade he will be in with us this season?

    Unless Dufty is paired with Clune in the halves for the CC team, Dufty will be a road block for Schiller as a fullback. Maybe a first stint occupying a wing spot vacated by Pearson's departure will help propel Schiller into a first grade wing spot or maybe even as a centre in first grade.

    I believe Schiller will be a regular member of the SGI 17 in the near future and look forward to seeing him perform at CC level in 2020.

    he has been playing men for a while now.

    Would love to see him in CC ASAP.

    I think you will find these highlights are from Under 19's comp and he will likely be in JF not CC for us at this stage

    Most of it is from 18s, he has played some FG and played union this year. The last try is from union.
    Yep he has been training at FB with the Flegg squad

    He will play JF this year and should transition to the DS next year.

    Another thread about a promising junior. Unless there is significant changes to the coaching structures in the club, they will either flounder or find success elsewhere like so many before.

    Cant wait for him to play 1st grade , score a try, and they belt out that Michael Jackson song (with a few poetic license lyric changes)

    We seem to have a plethora of backs including from number 7 right to number 1. Plus a forward or two. Looking good over the next 2 years. Just have to get the identification of prospective future players right then development that follows. Might be more important we recruit the right coaches (people) who can implement the correct pathway programs.

    Has a good left and right step. Bit of size. Looks promising.

    The question still remains of how we fit all these up and coming youngsters into our 1st grade?

    Schiller, Lomax, Ramsey, Sloane, Sailor and all fullbacks or suggested as such.
    Feagai bros, SSE centres.
    Saab on the wing.
    Sullivan, Wishart as halves
    Have i missed anyone?
    Thats 11 players for 6 positions, so ultimately, some wont make that jump and some we'll loose.
    This will take some very careful planning and retention strategy andxwell as having the right coach to give them the opportunity.
    For what its worth, at this early stage, I would have:
    1. Schiller
    2. Saab
    3. Feagai ( the onecwho plays centre dont know if its Max or Mat)
    4. SSE
    5. Ramsey
    6. Wishart/Sailor
    7. Sullivan

    great kid to and very good family!
    He has a good work ethic and a very good head on his shoulders thanks to his amazing family!
    Hes a natural Fullback through and through and such a specialist we NEED havent had a TRUE FB since Duges left....I can see him working hard and taking Zacs FB spot off him forcing him to centre sooner rather than later...Zacs a natural Centre to me, if we play them ALL in their natural positions to me we WIll win a few GFS when they do come through!
