I'm very cautious on our youngsters because we've played this game too often for no result, but if we can develop Ale and Tamarua on both sides of the ball we'll have a really strong back row in future.

Hopefully it's also Kearney free.

Taniela Otukolo's rise has been something. Started ahead of Temple Kalepo today. Out of all the flegg players out there today he looks likes the safest bet to kick on. Only just 17.

Ale, Kosi and Vagana all have bright futures.

Brody Tamarua could be a Tohu Harris like player, extremely skilled.

Eliesa Katoa is starting to deliver on the hype, I like him as prop in a couple years. Him and Isaiah Vagana have absolutely monster frames, they just need to full out and put some size on.

Otukolo is very sound defensively. Got through a lot of work today. Also looks good out of dummy half. Kelepo has just come back from school rugby but also has a bright future. A lot of them are promising but of the lot maybe Ale and Kosi Would have the best chance of playing first grade next year

Otukolo's very polished for a 17 year old. Him and Kalepo are amazing prospects. Those two along with Roache at the same age are the best hooker prospects I've seen come through our system. Yes agree, Ale and Kosi are definites for first grade at some point in the next couple years. We should make up a large portion of the junior kiwis team this years also with Edward Kosi, Hayze Perham, Paul Turner, Phillip Makatoa, Tyler Slade, Tom Ale, Sean Mullany all locks and maybe some bolters like Otukolo/Kalepo and Katoa/Tamarua.

Sounds promising.
I hope we don't shit the bed further next year and cause the quality juniors to look for the first ticket outta here.

I’m guessing he made his debut late in the season due to his age?
Preston Riki is another who could make JKs if still eligible.
Pretty sad to see the last ever game for the juniors. I always enjoyed watching 3 games back to back on a Sunday. Im guessing most of them will pop up from time to time next year in Canterbury cup

Yes correct and Preston is a '98 kid so not eligible.
An end of an era really. Players like Otukolo and Sione Moala will still be SG Ball eligible next year. However, a lot will still be Flegg eligible but will have to play Fox.

We need to affiliate ourselves with a QLD Cup side so we can keep more guys on the books and give them a higher standard of competition, even if it means sending them to QLD.

I know, too expensive to actually happen, and once we stop investing time in them most will probably head to NSW/QLD Cup anyway if they want to continue. There's a ton of ex-warriors playing for other clubs in ISP.

Getting rid of Flegg is not going to help us. SG Ball is good, but now there's a vacuum between Ball and ISP where we'll lose a few.

Absolutely no doubt about that. Players that graduate SG Ball and are not immediately put on a development contract or getting ISP game time are going to sign in Australia and we will lose them for good.

The only thing this front office has been talking about is improving development pathways. They have just majorly fucked it up.
If they are too strapped for cash to operate two junior teams then thats a different issue but I can't see this ending well.
