    Another point to make is that both Hetherington and Wilkinson have both come from a different system, and learning the Dogs approach will take some time. Wilkinson could also make a handy winger.

    Bulldogs beat Balmain 22-16 at Leichhardt Oval.

    Talivakaola, Averillo, Saukuru and Dillon tries. Wakeham 3/4.

    Looking through the team list, 14/17 are Islander kids. That's a massive portion. Might be 15 if Wakeham is aswell.

    Explains a lot - I'm not in the know of internal politics but based on watching games live including trials, and including holden cup, over a number of years I cant understand many of the selection decisions of the last two or three years.

    Tommy and Lachie are Willie's sons and guess who is assistant coach? Yep, Willie. Jacob is Frank's younger brother.

    Dillon and Averillo will get their crack at SG next year again. This year Dorian Yarak and Johnny Ryan (better options in my opinion) missed their chance because we bring Chan with a dicky hammy from Parra at the last minute and decide to promote youth and another assistant coaches nephew! Who said nepotism doesn't rule in rugby league

    How some boys got in the squad of 25 is beyond me. I know injuries occur and some kids are disinterested, but clearly the policy is to pick sides based on something other than talent.

    This is the 25 that should be out there...
    1. Wilkinson 2. Winterstein 3. Timoti 4. Katoa 5. Manu 6. Harding/Hetherington? 7. Wakeham 8. Sua 9. L Talau 10. Faemani 11. Saddler 12. Talivakaola 13. Traino 14. T Talau
    15. Swann 16. Matavesi 17. Moefili 18. Saukuru 19. Yarak 20. J Ryan 21. Pasina 22. Main 23. Averillo 24. Anderson

    Anyone else is either too young or not skilful enough or not tough enough depending upon the position.

    Look, you may be right in the long run, but as I said, they'll get their chance next year. Why develop kids through the system if you don't use them? Yarak for example is the fittest guy in the whole program, he's on contract, is tough and lightning quick and at u17s club level he shines in the premiership winning, star-studded Holy Cross Rhinos. He was Dogs top try scorer in Matt's and deserves his crack now in his age group. You'll see that I didn't have him in the best run on side in my opinion, but at least have him in the mix. Playing Saukuru, Dillon, Chan and now even Ratu ahead of him just doesn't make sense! Why stockpile all these players if you are not going to use them when it's their turn.

    SGBall were good against against North Sydney - given NS not a strong team. Wakeham again was very good. A few changes in the team from previous weeks - don't know if rested or injured - don't wish to be overly critical but Ratu on the wing - anyone else see the game.

    Mate, everyone looks good v Norths. Rested for sure. I'm expecting this side to get to gf now but they dropped off miserably last year around this time so wait and see!
