    Imagine if him and Junior Sau got married!

    He'd be Keith Sau.

    A good mate of mines uncle was the Aust Schoolboys team manager from the mid 80's until a few years back & he rated Lance Thompson as the best junior he had seen, alongside Brad Fittler.

    Another who springs t mind would be Greg Alexander. He was a champion by he time he was 20.

    That's pretty young. Maybe his name should be Junior as well.

    the best junior player i actually saw would probably be Jarryd Anderson funnily enough, yeah he played in my district, as did Brebt sherwin, Riddell etc, but he was a far and away standout.

    I can't believe Ronny didn't nominate himself.

    In the modern, post Golden age era (1987 onwards), the kids that most impressed me were:

    Simon Scanlon - (from memory a spine injury cut his career way too short)
    Jaime Lyon - (totally dominated players his own age and made Meaghen look like his less talented younger brother.
    Danny Sullivan - (as noted, such a shame he had a bad knee injury that got a golden staph infection).

    My younger brother played against Eric when he was playing for Eagle Vale in a trial against Chester Hill Hornets (My little brother's team). I can honestly say that my brother was quicker at age 15 or so then Eric Grothe Jr.

    The best junior player I`ve ever seen was Robert Foster. He played five-eight for Parramatta East Primary School in the late 1960`s. Anyone ever heard of him? Nah, I guess not. I played half-back ........ and no one`s ever heard of me.

    Yeah I remember that 5/8. I only remember him because the halfback was such a gun.

    Hey Lingard you may get a call up ;-) Might be a bit young with our recruitment policy though.
