He is only 16 but looks good !
Is there a link for this?
I thought the only good things in taupo were geothermal power and Gangs ??
Wonder why the Warriors rejected him, anyway good luck to him hope to see him progress over the next few years
There are probably 10,000 players like him in NZ.
Good fishing his way
about time lowieÂ & theresÂ more out there, get us an up & coming prop & some one who can kick goals from anywhere..
They are well known for not rating kids that end up making it, Matai, Kenny Dowell, Nu'uasala and Blair are 4 that pop straight to mind
and another kid signing SEA Eagles recruitment officer Noel Ã¢Â€ÂœCrusherÃ¢Â€Â Cleal has developed a reputation in recent years for snaring the best junior talent to turn out for the maroon and white. So when he urged the club to sign Craig McMurrich from arch-rivals Norths last year, it is safe to suggest the kid has a big future. The latest Manly Daily Junior Sports Star nominee will lace the boots for ManlyÃ¢Â€Â™s Harold Matthews squad in 2011, and is hopeful of a big year out of dummy half. Ã¢Â€ÂœI was fortunate to be given an opportunity with the Bears and was happy with how things worked out,Ã¢Â€Â he said. Ã¢Â€ÂœAs a lower age player I started seven out of our nine games. Even though we missed the semis, personally I got some good feedback on my performances. More > http://manly-daily.whereilive.com.au/sport/story/he-got-cleals-vote/
Great. Let's train these guys up for three years, get excited about their potential, and then watch Easts poach them.
yeh its all good and well that were signing these young blokes, but we have to retain them !
Ex- norths and future roosters recruit.Â Oh and played for manly in between
You lot have to be joking. Do you suggest that we only offer contracts to teenagers who are prepared to sign for life? How would we like that if some of them didn't make the grade? I'm happy to hear of more young guns coming to the club to complement the local kids coming through. I'm not shedding any tears over the likes of JWH and Tasi.
Anyone remember Dallas Rennie?
Dallas Rennie was hardly 16. I'm actually with SER on this, at least we are getting some potential out of these young guys, they may be good, they may not, and we are hardly paying them millions, we are giving them a shot, its Ball and Mathews, not State of Origin they will be playing.
Anyone remember us signing Hopoate when he was 16 or 17? he didn't go to the roosters....
Hoppa was still 17 this year! Has another two years of 20s to go... Plenty of time to be pinched... (not likely though, of course)
The roosters offered Hoppa jnr $100k to sign with them a couple of years ago and it took manly a long time to come up with a comparable offer at the last minute to keep him.Â
Why not? They are the best two young forwards Manly has groomed in the past two years. And what's the reward? Easts get to win games with them! There is no incentive to cultivate players, Easts proved that by getting to the grand final with one (if you count Anasta) junior. There is no loyalty any more, and the salary cap doesn't dispensate for generating locals. How Easts can afford these players is another issue.Â
