    I don't rate Mason or Proudler.

    How old is Pakau, Levi, Kilian? Surely they'll be all there if eligible along with Boyce, Mamo and Yates. Sione and Tapine will be in the NSW Cup. Will Bowen play next year? I can't remember him playing this season. Barker and Lamb seem to be killing it and will be 17 next year. Didn't you say Walsh and Lamb are our best up and coming halves, Billy?

    Are the 3 halves I named too young still?

    I like De Saxe but Proudler was really bad I thought. I've never seen Widders play

    Cogger and Lamb will be 16 and in their first year of Ball next year, Tyronne Walsh, Jake McNamara and Widders are all old enough next year after playing Ball this year and last year. Jacob Gagai played some 5/8 in Ball this year too.

    I think only one of Proudler and De Saxe is young enough, but i can't remember which.

    Jason Lo Monaco is a really good hooker who could share the spot with Levi.

    Brad Russell is a second row/hooker in the Matt Hilder mould who was used in one game of NYC at the end of the year.

    Roman Fepulea’i is a big Kiwi prop who played Ball this year and looks to be an impact prop with speed and power.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Of course, if it goes the same as last year we will have 20 kids we have never heard of from all over queensland and new zealand - and maybe 2 will be any good.

    If Sione and Tapine do end up playing we're going to have a pretty damn good team, especially if our Ball halves are good enough to make the step up. Don't know about the bench though. There's no doubt we have some extremely talented players coming through our ranks.

    Is Nganagarra Barker any chance of playing NYC next year Billy? The Knights seem to rate him highly

    Barker played under 16s this year - so 16 next year - and he is pretty small - so I don't think NYC is on the cards next year. He is a zippy little guy who can score from anywhere - very like Steven Widders in fact - but he will need to grow 15kg at least in the next 2 or 3 years to make his mark on NYC.

    Wow I didn't know he was that small, for some reason I thought he was a bit of a lanky, bigger kid. This is why you're the expert Billy, thanks for all that info.

    Stephen Widders profile.
    I think his games of NYC this year were mostly as bench hooker, but he was also one of the 7 or 8 guys we used at halfback.

    From what I have seen of De Saxe at the Storm and Knights he hasn't been that good. I'd worry if he was the starting 7 next year.

    Need to find a decent 18/19 year old to guide the ship before the guns below are ready to step upto NYC.

    This article has a photo of our Mathews side.
    Barker is the guy in the back row who is a head shorter than the others.
    Brock Lamb is the guy with black hair kneeling next to the trainer. As you can see, he is a big 5/8 for under 16s.
    I can't pick out Cogger, but he is a bit small too.

    I'd really like to see Brock Lamb sometime this year to play U20's, he seems like a real talent, obviously quite young but I'm sure he could hold his weight.

    I really am not looking forward to seeing how we go without Tapine, Sione and maybe even Clydesdale...
    I'll always love ya Josh Hill :'(
