Cronk wasn't a half until the age of 22.
Dedication + coaching = success
He played first grade at 19. By his 21st birthday he'll have played 17 NRL games. Not every first grader achieves that much so young.
Well he only played in the halves because Will Smith has a broken arm.
None of the backs at Wenty are good enough for NRL....
Not every week anyway.
Then why are they always saying, "Greg Lelesi, wow!"?
You could see yesterday the toll it has taken on them. Their first NRL pre-season and for a few of them their first full reserve grade season and for Parry throw in a few first grade games. It's a long season and when it's your first you don't know all the tricks and techniques to get the best out of your body for an entire season, it's why it usually takes 2 full seasons to get a regular first grade spot, unless you're an elite player.
Any good back in 20s?
Lost the under 20s in the final seconds in 2017, now lose the NSW Cup in the final minute of ET. This club can't take a trick.
Yep and that’s why we are playing them in NSW cup at a young age, so when they finally get an NRL start they have already played a season or 2 against “grown” men rather then their own age in the 20’s.
Gee we could have stacked our 20’s side and won the comp but what use wouId that be.....
A grand final team really should have more than 3 players, maybe we just punched above our weight.
Wentworthville Magpies Greg Leleisiauo, Tim Mannah and Rhys Davies have been named in the 2019 Canterbury Cup NSW Team of the Year, following NSWRL’s announcement after the Grand Final at Bankwest Stadium yesterday (September 28).

Our NRL team is pretty much set in stone apart from the reserves. My bench would be Alvaro, Niukore, Kaufusi and Salmon. This being the case, how does our CC Team stack up.
I'd almost guarantee he plays more NRL then NSW cup.
Schneider will be the 9.
You left Gower out. Also Hughes and Hollis may feature on the reveres bench .
Unless Salmon has a killer off season, he’ll start in reggies. Although he likely only needs to prove more useful than Taka, Stone or *shudder* Smith to make bench.
And no way based on last year is Kaufusi ahead of Evans. Early in season he MAY be 5th choice but after that he’ll have to prove himself otherwise Gower and Penis Torpedo are also ahead of him
