No not him Watto, was it Reece Pritchard? He was an outside back/winger...

It was pritchard. Was unstoppable try machine in State cup, went to the roosters got a few games, and was actually doing well but then got injured which led to the roosters moving in another direction.

Always thought Josh Davis and Nu should have been given a chance at least, but no longer watch state cup to offer up any suggestions of current players.

Sheens was a Tool. he had so much talent in the likes of Nu Akepira. Rhys Pritchard Josh Davis and Andrew Everingham ,just to name a few but because all 4 played for Wests and not Balmain they never got a look in and that's the truth of it.!!!! he instead wasted time in Balmain players like Meany, Lazarus and latu ....'

Think you are wrong about that one. Josh Davies was 18th man several times while running around for the Mighty Magpies as well

It is a funny old comp NSW cup, the standard is pretty good, but the introduction of professional football has meant the gap is huge between NRL and NSW cup.

NSW cup is made up of fringe first graders, aspiring kids, some of which will go on to make it, many wont and a heap of blokes that are good footballers but are not NRL players. And it is a harsh reality, barring a miracle, no one outside the full time squad is likely to get a call up, regardless of how well they play.

There are so many blokes that are pretty good at NSW cup year on year, for us blokes like Meeney, Waters, Davis and Farlow seem to be pretty good year on year with not much chance of parlaying that into an NRL career.

The biggest thing is size and fitness IMO

It's so hard for guys in state cup who work all week to get to their body to the same size, shape and fitness of a full time nrl player. You can tell just by looking at a guy like Sean spence compared to say Matt bell.

Very similar players but bell looks miles ahead as he gets a chance to be that guy
