Based on nothing but gut feeling I wonder if Qld development suffers because it's junior rep teams ie 16 18 20s are part of qcup team systems whereas junior rep teams in nsw are under nrl club systems. No disrespect to the qcup teams but they are semi pro at best compared to fully funded nrl systems in nsw.Jeez that depth is bad, even considering injuries & resting. What’s going on with the development systems in Queensland? Those numbers seem very low. New Zealand and some of the Pacific Islands would have more eligible players than that.
