We have no doubt dropped the ball the last 2 seasons, is this the funding issue cleal and scumdog where talking about. It is certainly not going to get any easier with 2 new teams to enter comp in a few years. It is certainly a new battleground given teams very rarely poach a nrl level but do it at junior level as it costs less example joey lussick. There are scouts in qld, new all through nz and I think soon many will pop up in png and the Pacific Islands. Seems things are back on track with our sg ball, the question I have do any of these kids in the 20s play any footy together before hand? Have to say the appointment of ox on the coaching staff could be a master stoke.
