Buying sbw and Cronk got them premiershipsRoosters and Storm both scout their juniors. Panthers do it too, even though we get a good proportion from the local areas. You do need to do this or else you are paying overs.
Roosters in particular also buy (poach) superstars. It's worked so far but I'm not convinced they'll remain one of the most successful clubs of the modern era without bringing juniors up at less than their true value.
I doubt getting smith will. He’s lost his discipline and cares more about social media stuff
the roosters are falling behind Penrith.
