    outstanding, its a matter of when, has it all , great taking of bombs, return of kicks is dynamic, comes into the backline at will, will be a superstar, that much talent. He was in front of me on sideline, big kid already, 190cm and 90 kg plus

    Jarred Hargreaves, THE MOST intimidating player I've ever seen in the club as a junior, miles too good for toyota cup, looks like a man playing with kids! He has got even bigger since last year, massive defence, hits like a steamroller, had players looking for him in most plays, reminded me of Les Boyd, hits the line so hard, give him 10-15 nrl games and then judge him when he gets used to the speed of 1st grade. Will  be a star in 2 years, how long can we hold him back??? maybe till end of year

    Get lost Roosters, Manly cut Hall etc, re-sign Hargreaves or we will regret it!!

    That sounded rougher than I meant it, but refuse to edit.

    Cut Hall now as he has reverted back to his pre Manly standard and put Hargraves in FG.

    I spoke to Jared very briefly after the game about his first grade debut. He said he couldn't believe how fast it was and that was the main thing he noticed, but that he was very excited. I thought he was quite solid in his debut - he dropped the pill twice, but ball security is not something you really see from young fellas.

    I think we should give him a run of four or five games in the top grade - like the Warriors did with Matulino and Packer last year. They give them a run in first grade, let them use up a lot of their energy, let them learn a sh*tload, and then when they hit an inevitable plateau after a few games, you drop them back to Toyota Cup. It does wonders for their development (look at Packer and Matulino this year) and it does wonders for the Toyota Cup team as well.

    I thought our 20s team was good today. Jared was huge, as mentioned. Hoppa was very good, he has nice touches as well - became a good link man a few times in our backline plays, which showed off more maturity than you would expect from a 17 year old...

    Big return from Daly Cherry-Evans as well. He's a classy player. I like his style, has a long way to go before he can convince me he is ready for first grade, but the bones are there.

    I suspect King may have a week or 2 holiday so JWH will get another shot. On todays efforts though there isn't really a slot there at the moment if everyone is fit

    True, especially considering how well George Rose went today... But I'd still like to find a place for him.

    They both played well and will be the future of the Club so they should sign them up now. I also wanted to mention the guy whp played No 14 - Ricardi I think - built like Choc and runs hard - very hard.

    How is the young winger going that we got late last year ? Think his name started with T, and he got 3-4 tries in 1 of Hoppas games last season. Tiopira maybe ? He was impressive when I saw him last season

    Are you sure ? He is only 85kg and he played half back.

    Wouldn't be Tiopira. He's a prop. Going good as well. Very good, runs hard and is tough to bring down. Odd running style though.

    You're probably thinking of Teariki Peneha, he was our top try scorer last year despite only playing nine games. Hasn't played this year though. Not sure what has happened to him?

    King won't even get charged - wasn't even worthy of a penalty.

    Golf handicap of 2, considered Union's SBW when that was a compliment, hadn't played league since 10 or 11 and after one season is legitimately an NRL standard forward whilst eligible to play Under 20s.  And then a 16/17 year-old that might even play top grade this year.  Lookin' good.

    Great news and hopefully he is thinking the same way as Des as I would hate to see JWH play against us and carve us.

    Great too see you posting again about our Juniors Darren, keep it rolling please as all the out of towners who can't make it really appreciate it!! Cheer
