Then think about the players I believe will be pushing for a 1st grade spot:-

Chris Trembath
Harry Berryman
Andrew Everingham
Mark Offerdahl
Jeff Robson
Vic Mauro
Jon Grieve
Junior Ahio
Sam Key
Sean Dalton

and co.

Not bad eh peoples?

Plus of coarse there is the fringe players that I have not mentioned, plus other signings we may not know about.

What do you mean. All these players will be playing for The Sea Eagles next year Fro. The top 17 is pretty wekll set in stone. Or are you being negative just to be negative? :roll:

No Ryan I was referring to your prediliction for throwing 4 million names in a list and thinking of it as gospel.

I'll bet money our top 17 is not set in stone, injuries, loss of form, late signings, late leavings. any number of things can happen between Jul 2007 and Feb 2008, and hopefully a premiership is one of them.

Is Grrom staying? Why Deadwood? Surely he will be released now that we have Perry and Rose to come back,

I've seen many of these guys play but it's very tough to get to excited about their play, because few are putting their hand up demanding NRL selection. So when you add these blokes as "Depth next year is awesome" I was looking for the nearest bucket.

But it's a good discussion topic so cheers.

He has only named 3 people (Bani, Wells & Groom) in the 17 that have not played 1st grade before, our depth does look ok based on that.

Ryan then added the other younger ones saying he believes they may be pushing for a 1st grade spot, he didnt say they are 1st in line should injuries arise.

Garts is being fair.

Arent you other blokes being just a tad hard on Ryan? I mean what would the world be like without Yarts?

Inconceivable !

I guess the whole point was that a lot has been said about our lack of depth we "may" have next year, but if you look at it like the above, that may not be the case. I mean a few of:-

George Rose
Mark Bryant
Adam Cuthbertson
Glenn Hall
Luke Williamson
Josh Perry
Jack Afamasaga

are going to have to play Premier League.

Then if you go to the utilities:-

Clint Halden
Aaron Groom
Heath L'estrange

Heath was at my neighbours, and mentioned he was with us next year. Whether that's signed sealed and delivered is beyond me.

I think it's fair to ay (at full strength), and even without new signings (on top of Perry / Le'Strange), we are good for depth.

Disagree Byso. I like the looks of a few of these blokes. Particularly:-

Wells
Trembath
Groom
Offerdahl
Neumann

I also like the way Ballin + Burns + Cuthbertson have recently come along. Gives me a whole lot more respect for the junior system.

WElls has been with us for at least 2 years and could be 3, and has not looked like getting a sniff at NRL.

Draw your own conclusions from that

Wells is next in line for the backrowers Fro. Last year he was far too skinny but this year he is a good size yet still mobile and has been one of PL best..

Ryan, out of your pushing for 1st grade players, 6 have played Flegg this year, and none have been dominating PL in the same way that Ballin and Cuthbo have been over recent years. Out of those Vic Mauro the former flegg captain has looked the best lately and Chris Trembath is finally settling into the faster paced environment. Even so i dont see any of them pushing for a spot, maybe falling into it like Halden but no way pushing. Some cant even keep their spots in PL week to week.

That said i think we have more talented depth by a long way compared to a few years ago and should it get called upon for the odd occasion then those individuals will do ok.

Saw Des on 9 news saying they will be in talks for Cuthbo this week which is good.

Compared to years past we have huge depth. I'm with Ryan 100%. Trembath & Wells will be to next year what Ballin & Cuthbo have been to this year. Jack & Sione can play 1sts, no doubt & Groom is the next big thing.
Halden & Bani have done nothing all year in PL but prove that tey're1st graders.
Like I keep saying, we should forget about buying current, established 1st graders & keep looking for kids in both our own juniors & elsewhere so that this richness of talent can continue to come through the club as it currently is.
Surely the doubters are starting to realise this.

Wells was named on a extended bench either late last year or early this season, he is obviously close to selection.
