Surely not?

QRL site lists an Elijah rasmussen winger born in rockhamton in 1999 which would appear to be a different player to the young kiwi/brit forward.

He was listed as 18th man for the dophins at home to toowoomba on 3 June 2023 but did not play and wasnt named again in 2023. Seems unlikely they would name a winger as 18th man.

The same elijah Rasmussen played regulary in the Redcliffe Mal Meninga cup side in 2023 as a prop and scored several times.

What are the odds of something like that happening as Rasmussen is hardly a common name.

Still seems a bit odd to me too. Mal Meninga Cup has age limit of 18.

I am thinking that ‘other’ rasmussen listed on the QRL website is a mistake.

Will the real Elijah Rasmussen please stand up!

Seems to be correct as there is a Elijah Rasmussen(winger) aged 25 named in the dolphins Queensland club squad and another Elijah Rasmussen(prop) currently playing in their mal meninga cup team who’s just signed a development contract with the dolphins 1st grade NRL team from 2025.

Still no Lewis Murphy for the Roosters NSW Cup side this week.

Must still be injured, so hard to find information regarding injuries in reserve grade, would be playing for Glebe in the Ron Massey cup if he had been dropped though. So 99% he is injured.

Pec injury.  Probably out for some time.

I was just looking to see if I could find out more about Elijah Rasmussen.

I couldn't, but I did see that there are two players named Elijah Rasmussen who play for the Radcliffe Dolphins.  That's quite a coincidence.

Remember when both Julian O'Neills played for Wigan?

After being really impressed with Whitehead last week, we saw the worst side of him yesterday.  Competitive turned into niggly and he infringed too often.  Plus he was always in the ear of the ref, even when he had the ball in his hands and slowing his team down.

Midway through the second half he had an exchange with the ref he should have walked for.

I remember one playing for Wigan and one playing for St Helens but never together at the same team.

At Wigan, one had "O'Neill" on his shirt and the other one had "Jules". I think it was only for a season.

What year?

the O’Neill that played for Wigan was a Aussie back from Brisbane broncos and the saints O’Neil was a kiwi prop from the Auckland warriors.

There was Elton Rasmussen who played for St George back in the 1960s and also represented Qld, NSW and Australia. The current Rasmussen(s) could be part of that family.

Over the last couple of years there have been 2 x Jack Williams at Cronulla - much more common name,of course. I think the halfback JW has moved on and the forward is now a regular NRL bench player but they would have played together in NSW Cup for Newtown.

The Titans had 2 x Tyrone Roberts and the lesser-known younger one started using Tyrone Roberts-Davis.

There were 2 x Sione Katoa around a couple of years back. One is the brother of Dolphins HB Isayia and the other one is the Sharks winger.

The youngster at the dolphins appears to be of Māori/Polynesian heritage.

There’s was also 2 Jeremy smith’s and both were kiwis.

Elton Rasmussen was born in 1936. His descendants could be about 80% Polynesian by now and still be named Rasmussen. The current Rasmussen could be his great- or great-great grandchildren.
