It's a bit worrying that all these players are playing so soon IMO. Tom Burgess played 50 SL games and then went to Australia and coaches from Souths said he was far from the full finished article and hence put him in the Toyota Cup. I don't think it helps a lot of players development playing so soon.

Where else are they going to play? We have seen the arguments and issues dual-registration causes and have no viable equal to the Aussie lower grades.

Does that stop him being a teenager?

Stops him from playing though doesn't it? Just had a look at the broncos player profiles and it says he's yet to make his super league debut and didn't play yesterday against Catalan. Hence "I thought he was injured."

Spot on there. I think it's called killing the golden goose. There won't be so many kids produced in future as the opportunities won't be there and RU cold well be the winner for that.
