    The guys only young. I cant see why some people whinge about signing young forwards, by the time he is old enough for first grade most of our current team will be long gone.
    If he turns out to be a gun we made the right move getting him early plus he must be alright if he managed to make a news article out of it.

    He may or may not make the steps required to progress to the NRL. But it's good to think we're putting the effort into getting a solid foundation of promising juniors on board once again. I don't recall the names of a lot of the gun juniors we've supposedly picked up, but there have been a few. To dominate as a team you need to have quality depth coming through to cover for injuries and for the inevitable fact that at some stage other teams will poach quality NRL level players. That starts by getting them young and hopefully developing enough good plaayers who stick around.

    Its always good when the club signs a new player. But I am a bit disappointed that some of the younger guys we have have never had a chance in the top grade.
    These fringe players will never excel in the reggies. They need to be given a chance in the top grade to see if they can cut it.
    Cleeland, Okunbar, Saunders, Garlick, etc all have ability. We signed players like Kennar, who was never tested in FG. Shame really.

    The good thing is, that a few more from NZ will be joining him on their journey. A positive, not a negative.

    This kid is not bad seen him play a few times, had a good Secondary school and U18 kiwi performance. He got an opportunity to make his dream come true playing NRL for the bulldogs. All the best!

    Sounds like an exciting prospect when you put it that way. Its never good to get excited about a 17 year old, but I guess if he has played a few u20s games you know he is something special. As long as pay is a good trainer and coach and supports the kid, could be the next rep forward to wear the bulldogs jersey. We are definitely light on quality backrowers.

    Remember when we signed another warriors young gun by the name of Brad Abbey
    How did that work out?
    I like that we are going after good young players, and look forward to seeing how they progress, but we have to keep in perspective that being awesome as a kid, doesn’t exactly mean you have what it takes to be awesome at NRL level
