OK that makes sense. Probably not many players would do that (but most footy players would probably struggle to get a - for the HSC), but if he's got a few brains then it's more than worth his while to focus on school and footy.

A number of the top players have made their debuts in the NRL while still at high school, think Benji and Lawrence just from us, not to mention NYC, so it is interesting that they're pushing a standout junior talent along so slowly.

Maybe also taking him along slowly as we already have a gun fullback in Teddy!!
