    A team with five Flegg-eligible players made the grand final, which is pretty good. Another four of them played under 20s for us.

    We paid the price for trying to defend a two point lead for 40 minutes. Newtown was the only side playong attacking football in the second half.

    How would that have helped his development? This is a kid who played a dozen NRL games this year as well, winning seven of them. He can play. He's just not a very good kicker.

    Wasn’t he meant to be some sort of prodigy over in the shire?

    The best players when I've watched WENTY have been the NRL guys. Mckiwrick,Hoffman,GJ,Mannah,Gower,Stone,Terepo.
    Stefano and Kafusi show a bit of promise.
    Salmons been big average
    Parrys been borderline garbage

    Yes they are young but none look like they amount to a lot bar average first graders perhaps. I am not sure Parry is even that.

    What position is he? Certainly not a half.

    His kicking was immaculate in the semi tbh.

    Anyone can see he's a footballer. Now it's just about finding his best position. But he starts next year on the bench in FG for mine

    He is fine at 5/8, if partnering an dominate half.

    Well they were a major part of the Wenty side that has won several in a row to get to the GF.

    So gee if our young players are average, f**k the other NRL clubs depth / back up players must be f**ken horrible ......

    I reckon a lot has to do with

    Mannah
    Gower
    Terepo
    GJ
    Hoffman
    GL

    Kafusi and Stefano may just need an off season and could explode.

    Interesting stat, Salmon as 4 nrl TA this year and raiders halves Wighton / Sezer only have 5 each.

    Additionally Drown only has 5 ( in 15 games / salmon played 12 games).

    So maybe Salmon does have some potential.
