Unless they are paying forward contracts we should have heaps if space left. If we don't have any space and looking at our side, then this club is a lot of trouble. Looking at the roosters in the grand final, we are so far from that level its not funny. Yes we did beat them in round 1. But their defence is ridiculous. We need a couple of stars..

Some of our supporters are a bit hard to please. We've recruited three current Australian Schoolboys reps and a NSW U18s rep. We also got one up on the Panthers sneaking in to sign Zac Cini. He seems like a genuine try scoring talent.

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

You were beating Usain Bolt at 40... :lol:
Well seeing Usain Bolt is at 9.58 no ................ :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick:

Wests Tigers announce 2019 Development Players
Author Dan Talintyre Timestamp Tue 9 Oct 2018, 12:34 PM

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."

Alex Seyfarth was a part of Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg squad in 2017 and 2018, and represented New South Wales in the U/18's State of Origin match against Queensland.

Seyfarth is a tireless forward who is possesses great power in both attack and defence, who was recently named by the club's coaching staff as the Jersey Flegg Player of the Year for 2018.

Australian Schoolboy and New South Wales junior representative playmakers Jock Madden and Tommy Talau will both join Wests Tigers development squad in 2019 — Madden joins the club from the Newcastle Knights while Talau arrives from the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

Wests Tigers fourth development player is Kane Bradley — a dynamic back-rower who stands at 195cm and 102kg and was named in the NSW U/18's squad earlier this year.

In addition to the four Development players, Wests Tigers are pleased to confirm the signing of Australian Schoolboy representative Zac Cini for the next three years. Cini will join the club in 2019 and begin his development contract with Wests Tigers in 2020. All four 2019 Development players will begin full-time pre-season training when the NRL squad returns in November ahead of the 2019 NRL season.

Appears to be a gun himself, I can't recall the last time WTs recruited so many Aust Schoolb0y reps and NSW Under age reps.

so these kids are going to play next year and get us into the top 8, if not there not what we need at this moment, we need class nrl players not kids at present. yes they may be great down the road but we are all sick of waiting and the B.S that we are always rebuilding.

What success did we see from the development players this year?

They didn’t (and can’t) play first grade. Our flegg side ran last and our ISP team limped into the finals before being eliminated early.

The only success was they were promoted to the top 30 because we can’t sign anyone else.

I will happily eat my words if they play a dozen nrl games next year and out perform incumbents.

You can spray paint a turd gold, but don’t expect $1600 an ounce for it.

Pretty much it Harv, just a stepping stone....while we need these recruits, we also need as others have mentioned NRL experienced class fast strong players
Are we serious on the paddock or are we just a business for the NRL?

What success did we see from the development players this year?

They didn’t (and can’t) play first grade. Our flegg side ran last and our ISP team limped into the finals before being eliminated early.

The only success was they were promoted to the top 30 because we can’t sign anyone else.

I will happily eat my words if they play a dozen nrl games next year and out perform incumbents.

You can spray paint a turd gold, but don’t expect $1600 an ounce for it.
What you don't rate Tom Mikaele ?
Injury-free this kid will make his make on the NRL.
Best young forward prospect this club has had since Woods.
And I won't have to eat my words.
