Our NSW Cup team is coming 2nd......................................................
Yes, but we have too many players that aren't NRL standard and hinder development of real prospects. Would rather finish the season lower on the ladder and have more juniors getting a run. Hopefully Gus continues to sort this out.

So you would rather have a team finish 8th because the depth would be better than a team finishing 2nd............................

OK.

They have been on fire all season.

Shitty conditions today and a poor game does not make them a bad team.

Just a good NSW Cup team having a bad day.
I'm not saying anything....

I just wish we had more fringe FGers in the side.

The point is they struggle coming into first grade, fullstop.

So do I, but one thing Gus has done is sign more than a few kids with potential.

It will take time but most of them should get there.

At the moment we are struggling through the Des legacy where he ignored out juniors

There are some good NSW cup standard players at the club but there is a lack of depth in terms of first grade ready quality players.

100%

We are really thin in the forwards, we could of used a couple today, would of saved us trying to go around them and failing.

PS I don't think most fans know how badly that **** fucked us....

Definitely.

Hopefully those young props Gus signed mature early and come through the grades at a younger age than most.

And that the recreated pathways will start to produce talent sooner rather than later.

There isn’t much quality in the nsw. Cup team I must say. Dufty is the standout player in that team
