    Could just use terms like:
    - Anglo
    - European
    - Caucasian

    And for others maybe try:
    - Islander
    - Maori
    - Pacific Islander

    Hell, if needed you could dig deep and come up with:
    - Asian
    - Middle Eastern
    - Negro
    - African
    - Indian

    If you knew any non-white people in any significant numbers you'd realise racism isn't a white thing.

    By saying islanders develop muscle and are generally stronger is not in any way putting them down - It is saying they are genetically superior.
    Other guys just have to use different methods to be better then them as aren't as strong and in league you need a mixture of both. It also seems easier to just get a big strong islander to run straight and hard then it is to find a smart skillfull player like say Norman or Foran

    Think you hve hit most of the recruits, Josh Gatt will probably play lock as he is not as tall as others

    Byrd shoe in at fullback as is Field at 7, If Schuster comes back and I understand he wants to, he could possibly end up at 6. He destroyed sides in the U14 Sydney Comp playing there, he is surprisingly quick for a 6 foot 100 kg 15 year old. The Parramatta comp in this age group is particularly strong. Some big boys if used properly on the edges will do well, I won't name the players but Wenty/ Rouse Hill and Hills will make up a fair proportion of those chosen from the locals.

    Dalby played in the centres in the MCS side yesterday, did well as he is s strong , quick runner . Didn't expect him to play that well in that position, may surprise playing there, actually there are a couple of rep standard sprinters that are in the talent squad that will probably play on the wings

    :lol:

    I know plenty of non-white people. I work with half of India and grew up in South West Sydney!

    You are right, other races generally have a specific other race they hate the most for whatever reason.

    I was impressed by Schuster when we played Manly in the prelim finals. He was so big and where they played him I thought he was a prop. He certainly ran like one.

    Well to be honest I didn't see Moanly play this year, saw a fair bit of Schuster last year and he always played around the halves, you can imagine he swamped some of them when he was at 6.

    Field was the 7 and he was at 6 when the Eels played all the other Sydney teams when they won that 2 day comp, some had never seen anyone that big and mobile playing around the back of forwards.

    He probably needs to get a bit more stamina to play there, but if he does come back, wil be interesting positional choice

    Ended up winning 38-14. Bevan played really well in attack and defence. Was told by Burty that the SG Ball players that have moved up are being given a month of "pre-season training" so that they get up to fitness and have to endure what the 20's squad endured in the proper pre-season, so it may be a while before we see any changes.

    Do we even need to make any changes? I suppose we will want to eventually give French, Twal and Fuimaono some time in the NSW Cup.

    Also, from our massively over-the-cap 2014 squad the following players played (or will play tomorrow) NRL this weekend:

    Davis
    Matterson
    Pauli
    Pritchard
    Aloiai
    Moeroa

    Which is not bad considering the oldest of them are only 22 this year. How many of the ones at other clubs would make our current side? None, which is why we let them go.

    I also herd this years successful Parramatta Harold matts team is doing a lap of honour prior to tomorrow nights 1st grade game at Parramatta stadium v Melbourne. Great Initiative shown bye the club to reward these young players with a presentation and lap of honour.

    Yeah Parry and Taufa Afu suffered some pretty bad injuries from what Fieldsy told me today.

    Yeah they used to do that a few years ago when we would comtinually win the district rep finals.

    The main player that I think we'd be looking to promote would be Steve Dresler who I think could easily overtake Kurt De Luis or even Jamie Stowers on the bench. The other one would be Tui Afualo who could easily replace Cerruto at centre but I'm not sure if we'd play him in NYC considering he still has another year of SG Ball available to him.
