AyiosYiorgos AyiosYiorgos, above reads that I was unsure of Hutchinsons beginnings. A bananabender eh. He is a good player all the same. But I say the priority has to be local juniors before imports.
No, priority should be whoever is the better player whether they're external juniors or internal juniors shouldn't matter if we are investing money and time in the players, shouldn't matter where they're from, if we decided to let Hutchinson go and he becomes a test player and the guy we kept didnt make it, everyone would be up in arms about it, blaming the club etc

I'm almost disappointed Tigers will be without their 18 year-old 5/8 against us in 2 weeks. If they beat us and he had a blinder, might have forced Flanno to give one or two of our young guns a chance in first grade.

Time for a petition by us fans calling for our club to live stream all our junior rep and Flegg games .NSWRL/TV is a joke, with only one match per round covered.
They should be able to do it, i assume at basically no extra cost to the club, i assume the games are filmed by the coaching staff so they can analyse the following week, so set up a live feed on Facebook and off you go, probably no commentary but i could live with that.

The video's are owned by NSWRL not the club's, same as NRL

The Bunnies are one club that has a live stream service for their fans. Do any others? If they can do it so can our club.
Bunnies media is top class, from their website to YouTube, the have interviews with players, lower grade games, they even show the FG captains run.

Pathways stars to capitalise on Lomax exit​

SAVELIO TAMALE​

NSW Cup – eligible for Jersey Flegg (under-21)
Position: Centre
Tamale, a Waratahs schoolboy star, has not only captured the attention of Shane Flanagan but NRL rivals. Big and powerful, Tamale’s exploits were on full display in last year’s under 19’s State of Origin series, where he made eight tackle busts and scored a try playing on the wing. Tamale is agile despite his size with speed and footwork.

HAYDEN BUCHANAN​

SG Ball: Illawarra Steelers
Position: Centre
A Kiama product, Buchanan has excelled for the Illawarra Steelers in SG Ball this year. The rising centre is building a reputation as a physical, hard running back that isn’t afraid to truck the ball up the field. Plays with plenty of energy and packs plenty of power and strength.

JESSE WILLIAMS​

SG Ball: St George Dragons
Position: Wing
A standout in this year’s SG Ball for St George, the winger is a brilliant finisher and ended the regular season as the competition’s leading try scorer, crossing 13 times in nine games. Williams is tough, resilient, a dogged competitor and the epitome of the modern outside back, willing to make the tough carries. He possesses speed, power and also makes a handy fullback.

SIONE FINAU​

NSW Cup
Position:
Wing
Finau, signed until 2025, earned an NRL debut in round 26 but was soured by an ankle injury. Highly-regarded at the club, Finau has an athletic build, a mean left arm fend, making him a difficult proposition for defenders. The winger’s NSW Cup highlights reel is a masterclass in the intercept, routinely turning defence into a try scoring opportunity.

DAVID AFU​

SG Ball: St George Dragons
Position: Centre
A product of the Penrith system, Afu was recruited into the Dragons system late last year. Packs plenty of speed, power and has a low centre of gravity. The youngster is a hard runner of the ball that can break tackles. Afu has impressed during his first season at the club and has formed a lethal left edge combination with winger Jesse Williams at SG Ball level.

BEN RUMBLE​

Jersey Flegg: Illawarra Steelers
Position: Fullback
An Illawarra pathways player, Rumble has spent most of his junior football at fullback but has the potential to switch into the outside backs at NRL level. Tall and athletic, Rumble has a well developed feel for the game and has a bullet like cut out pass in his arsenal.

TYLER PECKMAN-HARRIS​

SG Ball: St George Dragons
Position: Fullback
Peckham-Harris is a pocket rocket fullback with pace and is described as the kind of player “that does things on the field not many others can do”. A naturally gifted player with plenty of skill, Peckham-Harris was recruited into the Dragons system from Ipswich Jets. Despite his diminutive stature (165 centimetres), Peckham Harris is pound for pound one of the strongest fullbacks coming through the juniors. So versatile, Peckham-Harris can also play at hooker.

ZACHARIAH NACHAR​

SG Ball: St George Dragons
Position: Wing
Nachar is a specialist winger that is playing a year young in the SG Ball system for the Dragons. A Kogarah Cougars junior, Nachar is a stringy winger with speed and the ability to finish an attacking play. His effort and willingness to compete on every play has caught the attention of coaching staff.

Flano will prioritise Bird and imported journeymen anyway.

Usually it's what wingers do anyway.
Yes it is now part of a flankers makeup. Has been one of Lomax's best attributes, so Flanagan will want similar with his replacement. My choice is Finau over Tamale, unless he wants an import, say Blaise Tulagi(sp). I think there is room for one of the first two and the import.

My choice is Tamale in the centres in Bird's place and Finau in the wing, in Zac's place.

Joey Johns thinks we should pursue Eel teen half Ethan Sanders, who partnered Lachlan Galvin in the Aussie Schoolboys side, if memory serves.. Evidently the Eels board either does not rate him, or he is seen as too young to play top grade. Johns says, this may provide the Dragons a chance to step in and poach him. Can you see Flanagan giving this kid a debut before the Eels do.

Mine too. But we have a finicky coach that only wants things done his way and that includes prioritising his personal favorites. Are you aware Tamale is yet to be extended past this year.
