It's easy when you're a part of Wigan. How many came from your academy?

Is he a local lad?

 

Maybe if Northerners were capable of washing their clothes and cooking dinner without Mummy helping them, more would move down south. All of our homegrown young talent will be taken by Northern clubs this winter, which leaves with only u20s and Aussies, seeing as Northerners don't want to leave and the Northern clubs will vulture our best youngsters. How many local lads at Leigh?

Delighted to see leigh have so far recruited zero overseas after Jeffries pulled out

 

Picking up other clubs' rejects no doubt. Let's see how many have come from your academy....

In spain, things are going forward very fast. The game started from ashes in Valencia, now taking place in Madrid and hopefully in Barcelona. They trashed Belgium with ease. Also Spain could have some Perpignan's players as there's many double nationality (French-Spanish) in there.

Not to mention Josh Cordoba.

 

They've already said they don't want to go down the route of filling the team with Aussies with Spanish heritage and want non-nationals to play in the domestic league to even be considered. They're focusing on developing the sport rather than trying to get an artificial boost up the rankings. A good thing imo. 


In Topic: Commonwealth Games Rugby League 9s

09 August 2014 - 10:32 PM

Many people more knowledgeable on RL matters than me have commented on this board about the standard of competition at this years 9s event, I'm led to believe the Aussies treated it with their normal level of respect for international RL and New Zealand didn't send a team. If I'm wrong I will stand to be corrected.

 

The Australia team was the Sydney Roosters u18s who won the SG Ball and most of whom, will be NRL regulars. The PNG team were all from the local competitions and just shows how the jump from youth RL to senior squad is huge and somewhere along the line, players start to decline. The Hunters set up is hoping to address that. NZ weren't represented as the officials wanted to get a spread of the Commonwealth and PNG and Australia were already representing that part of the world. I have no problem with that.
