    Too slow. How about Israel Folau?

    Anyway, he debuted at 17 years of age, making him the exception that proves the rule.

    You would think there would be a random player that would have. Sam Burgess is probably an example.

    Isreal Folau isnt a very good example, because after all he played first grade prior to the commencement of the NYC competition. It would have been highly probable that he would have played in the NYC before playing in the NRL, had the NYC competition been in place.

    Just watched the Souths v Titans game and a young 21 year old reserve halfback (Luke Keary) scored 2 tries - it was announced that he was a Parramatta junior from the Hills Bulls.

    Does anyone know his background re: rep teams?

    Is this another quality junior that was overlooked or slipped the net?

    By Poo(f)man's definition of the modern footballer he probably doesn't fit the bill, being about 170cm and about 80kgs; but he has very good natural football talent.

    If we didn't sign him why isn't he playing A grade for Hills?

    Do you reckon maybe other clubs also scout the Parramatta district?
