Do white guys play rugby league anymore or are they playing AFL and Soccer now?
I’m guessing Arthur, Loizou, Tuipulotu and Russell (Who are all still eligible for ball) are starting the year in Flegg.
It appears they'll be in the Flegg squad along with Sam Loizou and Sean Russell
Is Arthura boy any talent?
Not really. He plays well in a structure. Jim Beam him.
He’s actually better than that, could end up similar to Nathan
Cleary. Still some filling out to do, the kids coming through have decent ability
Yeah I was being a bitch yesterday. I take it back.
Samuel Loizou (Parramatta)
Loizou is a centre who possesses plenty of speed and strike.
The Beaumont Hills junior was the youngest player in the SG Ball Cup competition last season. After a standout 2019 for Parramatta, Sam claimed the team’s best and fairest award before being selected in the NSW Combined Catholic Colleges squad for the Australian Schoolboy Championships. Another impressive showing then saw him earn a spot as the youngest player in the 2019 Australian Schoolboys side.
Sean Russell (Parramatta)
Slippery Eel Russell is another classy outside back who knows how to find the try line while he is solid in defence. This rising Parramatta youngster’s greatest strength is his fleet-footed skills as shown when he scored a cracking try in the Harold Matthews ranks against Cronulla last season. Russell put on two right foot steps and a left before darting away to score.
Myles Martin (Parramatta)
This Bathurst junior is one of the best young forwards in the game.
Myles Martin spent most of last season travelling to Sydney from the bush to play for Parramatta’s Harold Matthews side.
The Eels narrowly missed out on the top eight but Martin impressed with his defence and ability to make metres.
The former Bathurst St Pat’s junior also earned selection in the Australian merit side last year after a man-of-the-match performance for NSW Combined Catholic Colleges in their Australian National Schoolboys final win.
As a junior with St Pat’s he won five premierships while he represented Group 10 and the Western Rams.
Ethan Sanders (Parramatta)
Saunders is a smart and skilful halfback who claimed the Andrew Johns Cup (under 16s) best and fairest award for Parramatta last season.
The Hills Bulls junior also has the ability to play elsewhere in the backline if called upon.

Weird they'd write about Sam Loizou and Sean Russell neither of whom were selected in the SG Ball squad, seems like both are likely to line-up in the Flegg team.
The sg ball squad does seem light in the backs - maybe the likes of Loizou and Russell will return to the squad after the Flegg trials? Either way the article is pretty spot on. I really rate Sean Russell has a lot of skill to his game.
In the Matts team the whole backline is stacked with NSW school reps which should be exciting to watch. Keep an eye out for backrower Josh Alhazim who would have repped NSW as well if not for injury. I believe there will be junior rep trials v Penrith this Thursday night.
See highlights from the recent 2020 Parramatta Eels Apprentice Camp where over 20 participants from the Northern Territory, Country NSW, QLD and NZ visit the Blue & Gold. We caught up with Parramatta Eels Recruitment and Retention Manager Anthony Field, NT Coach Brad Fong and participants Eli Tuli and Tate Roberts to hear about the week long camp.
Anyone have the results from the past 2 night's?
I went dreadful on the punt.
Gary got so sick there were diced carrots in his urine.
Federer got through, but the Williams sisters got bundled out.
The result said I didn’t have coronavirus but that I shouldn’t have had that 2 week old massamun curry. Still felt like I was dying though
EELS GUN COULD BE KNIGHTS BOUND
The Eels are in danger of losing rising back-rower Toni Mataele to Newcastle next season.
The Knights are showing huge interest in the 17-year-old, who is still growing and weighs in at an impressive 105kg.
A Parra junior, Mataele has Tongan heritage and represented NSW under 16s in 2018.
He has met with new Knights coach Adam O'Brien and the pair established an immediate rapport.
Eels gun huh. Moley scraping away at the bottom of his barrel.
Bet you he wrote the article as a favour for a player manager.
a 17 year old who is still growing ? how rare
