    Not sure if a thread like this would be appropriate but there are those who keep up with the young players and those who have no idea.

    I actually had a question about Matheson Johns, is he related to Joey/Matty?

    Burton has some decent size and pace for a half, that try a couple weeks ago was impressive. Havent seen much of him unfortunately.

    No he’s not, Matthew has 2 boys, Jack plays Reggie’s for Souths and is a plodder, cooper is in the storm system and just got promoted to their top 30, he’s the better of the 2

    Try catch up on some highlights of Burton. He has real potential as a 5/8. Won the man of the match in the SG Ball GF last year (I would've given it to Blore)

    This is the fox game this week. So good chance for those that haven't seen them Burton looks the goods. Hopefully he reaches those heights with us

    Keen to have a look at Staines today, also Billy Burns has impressed the few times I’ve seen him this year. First time I’ll get a look at Burton as well. It’s a very young side today actually, Staines, burton, chricton, lenius all teens, coulda had Shawn Blore in there as well. Even the older blore is only 20.

    It is young but when you think that this side won the national u18's last year. The side they played against had David Fifita who is now playing Origin. So they clearly have talent so no reason to keep them down

    No doubt, I’m glad they are coming through. They might all struggle today but it seems like a decent batch of kids to work with. Unfortunate Shawn got hurt he has the biggest wrap of them all, anyway as you keep saying this is the first batch through the academy which probably borrowed heavily from what Gus knows bout the rosters system so hopefully more of them hit the mark and kick on then we get historically.

    He was influential in both Crichton's tries. The kid oozes class.
