    My mate bought up the same thing. Of the lot Pauli is perhaps the only one that may get some bench time and with JNR going would of been nice to still have.
    I guess the question is would of we been better keeping Davis over say Toutai or Falou?

    At the moment our biggest need is Front row - Hooker - Fullback.
    We have Bevan - Kaysa who both may be able to take those roles. Twal -fuimanno may be able to add depth to forwards.

    Who else is worth opening a spot for in Wenty next year? And who do we let go? Guys like Hasson - Obrien - Moss - ?

    Davis is doing pretty well at the Titans but he was ordinary last year for us and if he trained like he played I have no issue with them letting him go.

    I call bullcrap. When my son played U6/7/8 in Roosters comp parents or coach refereed. Zero problems.

    Additionally Docker-clay, Kelepi, Li, Falou, lussick, Goodall, Lavaka still have NRL contracts with several already making their NRL debut.

    Interesting Twal / Fuimaono were also part of that squad.

    Just a reminder that we have 4 players in the 17 for NSW on Wednesday night. Nohra playing fullback, LeAeatoa and Kei on the wings (how the top try-scorer in the HM is played out of position I'll never know), and Schneider playing dummy half.

    Is he playing out of position? Kids footy teams struggle to exploit weak opposition wingers, and likewise have trouble getting the ball to their own wingers. For this reason most quality youngsters who are best suited to the wing either play centre or fullback right up until they hit seniors.

    Plus some teams just don't have enough fast kids who can tackle, so the ones that can have to play centre, even if they're better on the wing.

    Yeah he's playing out of his best position. He's a centre, and was easily the best one in the Harold Matthews competition this year. Parramatta didn't have any problems getting the ball to their wingers.

    Well I saw he scored heaps of tries from left centre, but maybe that was just because he got the ball a bit earlier on shift plays. Running always beats passing in kids footy.

    What would you say his strengths are? What are his weaknesses? There must be a reason he was picked on the wing for this game.

    My mistake. NYC is on tomorrow.

    Maybe it's just interstate teams that don't play on Mondays? Or maybe just teams full of Mormons?
