I was chatting to a guy tonight at my young blokes footy training. He is from Toowoomba and played with/against Webcke and Steve Price. He was saying that his 11 & 13yo nephews are in the Ipswich area. He reckons that they are in about 4 or 5 different footy teams. Saturday footy, school, zone, state, etc, etc. He reckons that at the moment they are playing footy all the time with all the different carnivals on etc. and that footy is just rampant in Qld. I know we have these sorts of carnivals in NSW but are they to this extent. It sounds like these teenagers just live and breathe it 24/7. I know we are behind the banana benders atm but are we getting further and further behind in regards to development as well??
