    They all want to be backs. So do we go to the Islands to find some forwards with thump and speed and vision.
    They all look good though.
    PS Did we loss to the Knights today or just lose the plot.

    We have a lot of young back to shuffle around we wont keep them all.
    Yeah forwards are very skinny only Gale looking the goods.

    Unfortunately we can’t keep them all, I guess it softens the Saab blow a bit though.

    Tyrell won all time trials yesterday.
    Hook was really impressed with him.
    The kid is a freak and I think could be something very special.

    He looks great what I’ve seen of him, looks like Dave Peachey. Even more reason to not buy anymore backs.

    Great to hear, another young gun coming through. But where are the forwards? Which clubs have they all joined?

    Tyrell has been on Freddy's radar as a future NSW Blue.

    Joshua Coric, a prop was recently signed from the juniors to the Dragons future development squad.

    I'd say if he likes five-eighth then develop him as a 6. He can replace Bird when his two year contract is up. So many young backs coming through.

    He definitely looks the goods and then to have the added bonus of seeing the original post was 2019 and he is a year older. Great to hear he has progressed.

    Great news but it takes so long to develop forwards. Let's hope that Kerr and Blacker fire up in 2021. If Fa'amausili turns out well then a rotation of:
    Vaughan
    Kerr
    Fa'amausili
    Blacker
    would be something special. It all depends on what Griffin and his staff can do with these youngsters.

    I'd say you are right. The best way to go would be to host a few young big boppers, play them in our junior sides and then bring them through. Should have been done years ago.

    You would think that pathways would see that we are short on forwards.

    Could Sloane partner Sullivan in the halves?

    You are forgetting the prop that carried them last year. Blake LAWRIE

    I'm sorry but it is my view that Lawrie has not developed into a first grade prop. Lawrie, K Sims and Merrin will end up in CC as backup forwards.

    Unless there is an emergency, like Ramsey, Schiller will make his NRL debut on the wing and most probably so will Soane. But if Sloane follows the five-eighth development path, he may just be ready as Bird completes his contract with the Dragons.

    In the video that George posted he was playing fullback and five eight for most of it.
