Hooker: Michael Lichaa, he is developing nicely now. Lichaa is still in development stage and has been for the past 10 - 15 years. I am sure he will come good soon

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Harold Matthews and SG Ball teams continued their pre-season preparation on Friday with trial matches against the Manly Sea Eagles at Terry Lamb Complex.
With the junior representative competitions kicking off in February, both sides ramped up their preparations against the Sea Eagles before a final trial against the Parramatta Eels next week.
Both teams gave a number of triallists for both sides plenty of game time and the line-ups were changed throughout the day.
The Harold Matthews game was played across four 20-minute quarters with the Bulldogs claiming a five tries to four victory.
Manly led by three tries to one at halftime, before talented centre Paul Alamoti led a Bulldogs fightback in the second half.
Alamoti grabbed two tries, including a length of the field intercept, while a try right on fulltime gave the Dogs the victory.
The SG Ball fixture was played over three 25-minute intervals in a match that saw Canterbury record a six-tries to five victory.
Manly dominated the opening stages of the match with three early tries, before the Dogs grabbed one at the end of the first interval.
The Sea Eagles extended their lead before young half Joseph Williams crashed over the line to register the Bulldogs second try of the day.
The final 25 minutes was dominated by Canterbury to give the Dogs a six-tries to five victory.
Next week will see both sides play the Eels in a final hit out and give coaches an additional opportunity to see the talented players they have at their disposal before the competition kicks off on February 8.

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are pleased to confirm Jackson Topine has been selected in the 2019 Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League under 18 team.
Topine was named in a 17-man squad that represented NSWCHS at the recent schoolboy carnival held in Canberra that saw Queensland claim a 34-10 victory over NSWCCC in the final.
The 18-year old received his jersey from current Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga with the side set to play a one-off Test against the New Zealand under 19 side in Brisbane on September 22.
A student of Easts Hills Boys High, the hard-working back rower has had a great season to date having claimed the club’s SG Ball Player of the Year, being named captain of the NSW under 18s side and selection in the Bulldogs Jersey Flegg squad.
On top of these achievements on the field, Jackson has re-signed with the club until the end of the 2022 season.

The word 'development' club in its strictest meaning is overrated.. most clubs can develop players once the players are in their system.. the number of clubs that havent been able to develop young talent is minimal if any..
Good scouts is a crucial part of the process.. that saw the club bring over SBW from NZ and Barba & Thurston from North QLD, and theres an endless list of great talent identification weve done over the years..
Brisbane and Penrith identify themselves as 'development' clubs they havent won a comp since 2006.. meanwhile clubs with great recruitment of juniors and also top players have won many more competitions..
In summary Development is necessary for all NRL clubs.. but great talent scouts and great recruitment set the top clubs from the others most seasons..
Melbourne develop very strong players, but they have no local junior base, so they are making many right decisions in identifying and recruiting the right players..Last edited: May 15, 2019
