None of the Brisbane recruits are Queenslanders. If weather plays a part, let’s go to England to recruit?Our recruitment is misplaced. It’s basically raid Brisbane due to Kearney’s link to there. The reality is Auckland is so foreign to Brisbane, weather and lifestyle wise, it is one of the least likely places to pull people from. Of all Aussie, the Queenslands lifestyle is the most removed. Due to their climate they are more relaxed, laid back and easy going than Aucklanders. The only ones we are getting from there are the ones that are heading out the door anyway so would consider anywhere. All their talent are repeatedly dismissing us.
Our recruitment should be more Sydney based as it is ‘more’ similar in weather and lifestyle and would be seen as a more natural fit for the players.
The fact the majority of our recruiting is tied to raiding Kearneys last club highlights some real issues. Is it that we have 0 to offer/ chance of recruiting talent from Sydney?
