Well not so far...
Great watchers, shyte sportsman.
Not sure about the criteria but Timana Tahu went alright
Victorians can scarcely produce a cricketer good enough to play for Australia, let alone a league player.
They should stick to Fumbleball where they don't have to worry about national team selection.
Shane Warne is like the gold in rubble
Not born and trained until the nrl gets serious about investing in grass roots and schools program in the State. It’s a simple numbers game, get five thousand kids playing the game, take the top 100 into an elite program, 20 of them will make nrl first grade, 1 or 2 of them will become a kangaroo,
there’s been 7 players born or developed in Victoria to make rep teams
Timana Tahu is from victoria and represented Australia so to answer the original post, yes.
lol, Tahu the Newy boy.
It is OK they can only produce a cricketer every twenty years or so, they do play that too.
Just shyte at it.
Sandgropers go better.
Hey I would love to see a Storm born and bred playing in the green and gold, I really would.
The only thing "gold" about Warne, was Liz Hurley.the guy is a dead set plunket.
Gary Ablett Jr, 8 time All Australian....
Who did he play against?
f**king amazing cricketer
There is a much higher chance that a player born in Melbourne, going through the Vic Juniors will play for NZ, Tonga or Samoa then Australia.
Partially true but I think even this is overly optimistic.
If there are 5000 victorians kids playing, I still think the standard would be lower than 5000 QLD kids, and thus less chance an elite player coming out of it.
There's decades of "football IQ" built up through generational coaching and viewing that simply doesn't exist yet.
For what it's worth though, the following first grade players played some junior football in Melbourne, asterisk for *all* their junior football.
Young Tonumaipea *
Richie Kennar *
Mahe Fonua *
Drury Low *
Denny Solomona (Super League and England RU)
Has this simple numbers game been proven?
When we implement my rule changes there will be several Victorian born players playing NRL within 2 years and a superstar or 2 within 5 years. You’ve got the T-Boon guarantee on that.
Not sure, the numbers might be different but the point stands, more kids playing the game and high quality elite programs = professional players.
What about the two prossies and inflatable dildo act? You can’t deny him that!
Rather watch Hurley for 1 minute than Warne for a day.
Yup.He sure as hell got my share.Used an inflatable raft once.
Rather watch him play than commentate.
There was a wrestler from Victoria called "Australian Suicide", now that's a catchy name lol
Separate names with a comma.
