Did well for a 10 year old.

Players like Morley or Sonny Bill Williams are few, and no question would you make an exception for fitness professionals like those guys.
Even so, we still got Morley going on 29, which is close enough to a 27/28 age guide.

By and large a 27/28 year signing is going to give you 3+ years of worthy investment, so when they reach 31/32 you’d be thinking about the worth of an extension or not.

We don’t want to be signing the likes of Kasiano and Dudson again.

Has Abe heard anything about Drinkwater joining FC on loan for the rest of the season?


Hull made an approach, but it's been knocked back.

Especially as props don't usually reach their peak until about 11.

Focus certainly seems to be on youth - it’s a nice refreshing change.

From 2012 to 2022 we have had only Currie. Philbin, King, Thewliss and Wrench through the academy system that seem to have embedded themselves in the 1st team squad. That's really poor, and I know that we seem to have finally understood just how important home grown players are to our future success. But.... even allowing for the focus on player development and apparent success, I really hope we are going to see a balanced approach to the external and internal channels of squad recruitment. That may seem strange coming from me as I have been banging on about youth development for years, but I really hope this doesn't swing in the other direction and we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

Hopefully it means agents will use other teams as stalking horses when trying to get their NRL players better terms.
