similar to Marshall, Foran & Taumalolo all played for Aussie Schoolboy's. Its a bit like NSW residents and Queensland Resident if you play for a top school over their your eligible, its not who your going to represent in the future.

I think the Aus Secondary Schools RL just likes to boast about producing senior internationals regardless of what country they go on to represent, so they pick the best players even if they arent eligible for Australia. Its stupid.

I actually don't mind it. Those kids are getting the very best coaching, facilities and training of any RL juniors anywhere in the world. Let the Aussies develop our players for us so they turn up for the Kiwis better off...

EJ Toeava is on his 3rd NRL club lol and he hasn't even taken the field yet - To much media around this kid will hurt him if he fails to live up to expectations.

There was quite a bit of media coverage about him when he signed with the Cowboys last year if I recall correctly.

I know, I've seen this kid around the fields last few years, has an attitude IMO, the media coverage didn't help. Just before your news, he had switched to the Storm, I heard this season. His manager is signing up everyone in the local comp in Auckland.

Seen him play as well. He definitely has an attitude problem. Way too cocky. I remember his interview last year when he said "this is why they call me the next Greg Inglis". Unless he has an insane work ethic off the field, I can't really see him going far.
