    I think they allowed D6 players to play from the restart of the competition with no dispensation needed

    Good on Sam for working hard to get that spot. I know it was only trials and 1 game but he was head and shoulders above his team and the competition in the Flegg games he played. Has really turned his confidence around and will hopefully be able to show what his 195cm 110kg frame can do in first grade.

    He won't play again I don't think, however that doesn't mean he has been released.

    I know some of you know his situation and aren't at liberty to say, and I know we all put shit on him a fair bit, but I wish him well, it doesn't seem like he will end his career in a way that he would have wanted. I hope he is OK.

    From what I know he will be ok... just that elite level rugby league is probably no longer an option for him.

    Jake is now A 6 foot tall half back, And probably the most natural and talented half across all junior programs.His addition to development is for his skill , but don’t let that get in the way of people who have never seen him play.

    Thanks for that JE. Probably one of the better BA interviews I've heard. They asked some good questions and BA handled them well. Good stuff.
    Cheers.
