    Happened to come across a post on reddit with a link to an article about Keebra Park aligning with Easts Tigers in the QCup. We got nothing from McDonnell and that school basically...

    Looks like the Titans have moved in.

    The Easts Tigers thing is only sponsorship.

    No use throwing money at them if they're still funneling talent towards the Queensland clubs. Will have to see how the country NSW connections go. Seems like they've put some thought into how it might work better with the kids being able to finish school at home before moving to Belmore or nearby.

    If devontai can become a regular firstgrader in the future, we can say we got something out of it.

    I’m not sure it was that much use anyway the Broncos still got the cream of the crop compared to the Tigers and us. Least we haven’t sat on our hands and set up the connections in northern NSW.

    So true. A very weak connection and not worth pursuing. Fifita shoulda been ours lol

    How is Devontai coming along, he seems big, faster and stronger than most of the opposition but that can sometimes affect the development of young players as they rely on their strength too much without developing the rest of their game.

    He played alongside Fifita and was supposedly as highly rated. Fifita is playing NRL while Devontai is still in Flegg and only played 1 game in CCup....will be interesting to see how he is coming along.

    Don't worry the Bulldogs still love scouting on the Sunny Coast. Storm can't sign all the talent here as some repeatedly fall through the cracks.
