    Imo. Its whoever unearths them. Id count Guhterson as one of ours. Manly didn't have that much faith in him and let him go cheap. Same goes for N.Brown, Niakuore,Papalì.....

    I tend to think its whatever club transitions them into NRL level .... Moses is a Tiger, Jnr is an Eel, Mahoney is an Eel ... Matto is a Rooster - he is a libe ball one tho cos he went alost all the way with us - similar with Gutho, he is an Eel cos we got him across the line but line ball Sea Eagle

    When matterson is asked what’s his junior club, he’ll answer Bankstown bulls. Saying he’s our junior has as much merit to saying Inglis is a qld’er. Just because someone has stated a rule of eligibility, it doesn’t mean it’s right.

    klemmers family were associated with a junior club within the parra district, and they always referred to him a parra junior that got poached.

    The Bankstown Bulls aren't an NRL club though, even if they are affiliated with one. It's got nothing to do with eligibility either. Kids are free to sign with whichever NRL club wants to recruit them into their junior system.

    Does that mean Jarryd Hayne was a Wests junior?

    It doesn’t need to be black and white FFS! Surely when we talking about junior development it means over years not one specific point in time? It’s got nothing to do with rep eligibility rules or who the player would declare allegiance to. It’s whether the club played some part in developing them whilst they were a junior.

    Now there’s an argument for level of involvement leading to being an NRL player, so players like Klemmer/Gallen can be discounted but then there’s players like AFB who spent time with a bunch of junior systems. It’d be almost impossible to determine which had the greater impact on development. But then it doesn’t matter which one was the best, just whether any in particular had significant impact I.e. if the player doesn’t spend a year at X club perhaps he doesn’t learn a certain skill that makes him successful when he moves to the next system

    With Flanagan now missing out on the Sharks gig expect him to be linked with our club if we lose again this weekend. His media mates are ready.

    Also it has been reported on social media that his son is very unhappy at the Dogs.
