Sorry if this is in post but just letting you all know we have signed a player from Beerwah Bulldogs, Aiden Young 18 years old a tall winger with a bit of pace. Played A grade this year.
Sunnycoast , sounds like you know a bit about the kid

He's not Arthur Young's boy is he ??

If he is , we got a good un , if he has the same work ethics as his Dad , we are on a winner

Before someone says there are a million Youngs on the planet , when we were down at my Mum's read an article about this young kid and they had his Dad picture as well and I recognised him .....

If he has his old man's speed we are laughing as well , Arthur was around a 10.7 for the 100 m runner , worked his butt off , gave 150 % every time , utilized every single bit of his talent and a top bloke to boot
I don't know him personally just what my mate has told me. This kid is a natural talent 6 foot 4 tall at 90kg does the 100m in under 12 seconds. He had his first year of A grade at 18 and topped the try scoring in the league this year. Very lean and strong in attack and defence. If he gives it a good shot he will be playing NRL in 2 years. Just what my mate has past onto me, I think he may know the coach or something like that. Will ask about his old man.

Sounds all good until you said he does under 12 for the hundred :lol:

I reckon I may have still done around 12 flat for the 100 as a 40 year old :roll

THEY GOT TO BE KIDDING, the 3 of them really didnt set the isp on fire, come to think of it they were very ordinary, and this is what the club dishes up as major signings, we deserve every thing we get, which is nothing.

What a joke. We need decent players, not development players. That matters on looks good and can take a 2nd row but we still don't have a legit centre, any pace in the back line, a aggressive prop on our rotation as well as wingers who are average. Also we need to resign brooks asap. Oh well there is always 2020 haha...

Mikaele was pretty impressive actually, he also looked good in the 1st grade trial v the cowboys this year. Wouldnt surprise if he nails a bench spot early in the year. His aggression in a short 15-20 min stint would be great.

Not convinced on McIntyre, although he got shafted around when we ran out of backs. A full pre season and a proper move to the backrow will give us more of an indication in 2019. Is very fit and quick for a forward. Apparently he is the one who most impressed Cleary in the transition to full time training.

Smith seems a waste in the top 30. I think he looks promising but is unlikley to be anywhere near ready for first grade next year. Is purly a fullback so not even a wing/center option is injuries hit

The development players for next year are a higher rated bunch then the ones we had this year.

All the development players were signed on two year contracts , that's how it works ........... :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick:

You need to watch Mikaele more closely

Wests Tigers have today confirmed the club's development players for 2019.

The club is pleased to announce the signing of Jock Madden, Tommy Talau and Kane Bradley, as well as the promotion of Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg player Alex Seyfarth.

The NRL initiative allows clubs to sign a maximum of six development players each year; the players train full-time with the NRL squad but are not eligible to play first-grade.

Wests Tigers Recruitment Manager David Warwick said the club was looking forward to watching the players take the next step in their rugby league careers at Wests Tigers.


"All of these young men possess excellent talent and we're delighted to have them join the club," Warwick said. "Training full-time for the year is a great challenge, but it will certainly see them progress a long way as a result of being around the senior squad.

"As we saw with the success of our Development players this year, having that time with the NRL squad is greatly beneficial to their growth on and off the field, and we're excited to see how this year's group progresses throughout the 2019 season and beyond."
