    For Manly to beat the Dragons in the Ball give us hope for the future, traditionally St George is very strong at junior level so well done to the young blokes.

    For a dose of reality it is worth nothing that St G and Illawarra have reverted to separate under age teams after having combined teams for a few years!!!!

    Saints and Illawarra have never merged their Matthews and Ball sides.
    A young kid i coach named Chris Ayoub is in the Mathews cup side for Saints at prop. Remember that name. He works too hard, pays too much attention to coaching and is too blessed with the physical tools required not to be a sucess. Also Saints have a great track record when it comes to producing props.

    Talking to Dennis Moore last year he made comment i=on the amount of money the Dragons & parra spend on their junior sides (paying school kids) in comparison to Manly so I still think it is a good result

    I can tell you for sure that no one in Matthews cup gets anything other than their footy gear. They dont even get boots. And no players are brought in from outside the district. They are all bonafide Saints juniors. When they get to sg ball Saints are prepared to bring in country players or kids from other junior leagues that have been identified. There might be a very small retainer for these players but i dont think saints do any more than look sfter the schooling of the sg ball players. eg get them into Endevour high which is a sports targeted school and has a very strong football program.
