According to Velocity Sports, Lachlan Lee has been added to the NRL squad.

Also the Knights have pinched Tavita Fesolai and Thomas McGrady (SG Ball 2016).

*Apologies if posted earlier/or other thread

Whats everyone's thoughts on Jayden Okunbor ?
He looked like the next big thing but he looks rather average after seeing more games.
He doesn't have much pace or agility I thought he looked better playing prop at the back end of the year
From the games iv seen in 20s and previously sgball - cant or wont tackle - maybe that's y he ended up in the forwards - I thinkhe was a Castle pick - get the refugees interested - he also hadthe advantage of training in pre season with nrl squad - still wouldn't tackle in first half of the year - hopefully I'm wrong

I seem to remember that he played mostly Shield and Massey this year. Don't think he even played an U20 game for us. Penrith were not fussed when he left them.

I think we always had a good crop of juniors. Sad part was they never had access to a person who could coach. Patmore and Anderson etc.

Maroske, Montoya, Martin and Tualau

This was taken at the 'monopoly day'. Great promo by the club for a change with interaction between players and fans. Mix of first grade, Intrust and U20's. Wonder how the presents looked after the Morris boys had a go, lol.

Good read and sounds like he has his head screwed on, and some serious drive and ambition to succeed.

He was with us in 2014 for a train and trial it seems.

and has played all over the place (prop/fullback/five eighth).

and he's a Crusher spotted player!

Yeah I think he was a training camp player. I haven't worked out what I'm doing with those lists yet.

I have nothing to do tomorrow night so I'll re-work this thread and make specific NSW Cup, NYC and SG/HM threads etc.

Part of the HPU group we have every year. Morgan Harper is one from the previous years group who's gone through to Holden Cup.
