Did anyone find it strange that for the first time the NRL are asking where the juniors players parents and Grandparents were born ??
My boys play and I Coach in the Wests Comp in Sydney. They've been asking us that question for the past 2 years Hap. I don't get the relevance of them asking, do you?

I was thinking it might be because they want to make a firm line in the sand about nationalities or possibly to see what nations kids are eligible for World Cups ??

Who knows it is the NRL we are talking about :D

Very Proud Yoss

Yeah I had an inkling last season

A few blokes involved with the Gladstone Raiders had been asking the coach who he was

He doesn't seem to stand up when it is trials , but game time he usually plays well

I recall the question about where the parents and Grand Parents were born was around last year. Unless I'm confusing my kids sports.

And what a great way to start the season with a rep selection before kick off!! Must be in demand that young bloke.

It's EB's first season playing full fields ,scrums , maybe that is why

Anyway just want to wish all the boys and girls of all the Forums Mums and Dads ,Grandparents and Great Grandparents and enjoyable and injury free season

Now we just need to find a pair of boots that are suitable for his ankles and meet his colour requirements :brick:

Was going to ask a few questions as I spoke to our President today and was wondering if other clubs were suffering the same issues

Looks like our juniors will lose 3 sides this year Under 16 ,Under 17's and Under 14's

The Under 14's had 19 players last season and were literally turning kids away as they just couldn't quite fill 2 teams and won the premiership after losing only one game all season

This year they only have 10 players and the parents voted to not amalgamate with Calliope (another club about 20kms west )

In the Under 14's division they will only field 3 teams from the 6 clubs involved

Both the Under 15's and 16's both made the GF last season , they might get a few Under 14's step up to Under 15 to help them out

Yet the Under 6's at our club had over 36 kids and will field 5 teams

Do any other junior clubs across the country have the same issues that they know of ??

The NRL really need to address the junior development. I think they're asleep at the wheel. Certainly are over this way.

First game of the season for the boys against the defending premiers

Gonna be a tough week , we lost our hooker for the season with a shoulder injury and lost 2 forwards in the off season

We might struggle to keep this close

Boys have played 1 trial game which was stinking hot (penrith comp) everything else been washed out. Theyre hoping to sneak in a trial this weekend before the season starts the following week, but more rain predicted Thursday!! Could be one of those years.

This problem has been going on for many years with these age groups. Has some of your key players left to join bigger clubs???

Not sure how to fix the problem, but obviously the hierarchy needs to sit down with all clubs/parents to determine a suitable arrangement.
