Exodus Semau is good but his younger brother Judges will be even better.
Any idea what happend to guys like Aifakou,Dressler and I am sure a few other guys from 20s missing. If someone can do an update it would be great.
Aukafolau’s still there. Dresler is too old for Flegg, as is Michael Tupou.
Are all eligible for Flegg next year but you’d think Brown and Steve Utoikamanu are unlikely.
Think Dressler has had to step away from playing due to a bad injury, Tupou is too old for Flegg, not sure what his status is currently.
FYI, at least 12 of the squad are still eligible for SG Ball, understand its part of the decision to continue to fast track juniors. There are some very handy players, the new structure should benefit them even more so than those before them.
Anyone know what has happened to Brent Barnes?
I think he’s playing Oztag in Carlingford these days.
Don't quote me on it. Herd he went home for what ever reason.!
did this quick spreadsheet. Positions may be different for some players as I could only find info on when they were a lot younger, if I've made any mistakes let me know. Also if anyone has info on the 3 unknown players let me know and I'll update.
p.s some players play multiple positions so just stuck them where they seemed to play the most. Players include: Joe Small (lock, centre), Jack Jordan (lock,second-row, winger ), Peni Tohi (centre, hooker but has played exclusively centre since being in our junior reps), Sam Hughes (middle, edge) Trey Mooney (edge, middle), Michael Cheer (fullback, outside back), Tevita Masima (fullback, half)
Excellent stuff. Cheers OA.
another one of our potential new recruits also has a highlights package
Heard we've signed two qld schoolboy dummy-halfs. One from PBC. Im sure its old news but they were the best in their league in 18
Jed Edwards, the one from PBC, played in our Harold Matts team last year. I believe he's staying up in QLD to finish his schooling. The other is Cameron Bateup, who is in our Jersey Flegg this year.
Did you genuinely hear someone else say this or did you just watch the schoolboys games on Fox where it was stated that Parra had both Edwards and Bateup contracted?
Jed is an interesting one. He was suppose to finish school at the end of this year. Unless he repeated. As QLD finish school the year earlier than us.
I remember that Bateup kid watching him play in the national final v Parra 2016.
We also have Vea still in Flegg plus 2 other hookers.
Will be interesting to see where Schneider plays.
I watched the game
Young halfback Bailey Biondi-Odo has been selected in Mal's emerging Origin 18s team.

Good luck to all the young and talented footballers in action!
In season 2019 the Parramatta Junior league will be launching 'Friday Night Footy' in a new U18's competition.
This new concept is a way to look at keeping things interesting for and age group that can be tough to keep playing sport.
There will be 16 teams across 2 divisions, with the Parramatta Junior League identifiying up to 10 venues that have facilities capable of hosting night games.
Each Friday evening they will utilise 4 of these venues that will each host 2 games, with the first game kicking off at 6:30pm and the second at 7:45pm.
The first round of the Friday Night Footy competition will commence on 5 April 2019.

It would be great to see Parramatta Marist as an elite Rugby League school again. I enjoyed watching them on the Commonwealth Bank Cup. Good colours, tradition, many good eels.
