The untested junior had arguably a better junior cv than Tedesco.
And what would we have lost by cutting Tedesco loose? Answer is nothing. We still have supporters calling him Teddy despite the fact he rewrites history to confirm his long standing love for the club at Bondi which is located at Camden.
Perhaps if we had rid ourselves of him earlier, we may not be trying to find a fullback
So you pick the guy on his junior resume. Teddy had an infinitely better open age CV.
The question still stands, in what world do you let a state rep and national fullback walk to appease a junior who was yet to have played first grade?
