Victor Radley won't be in the emerging squad for much longer.
"This club means a lot to me and I really love this club, I love playing here, I love playing with all of the boys, it's what I've known for pretty much all of my life and I'm happy to be here." - Luke Brooks.

Really happy for Luke getting picked in the emerging squad.

Then I saw the whole list of players.

Not such a feather in his cap when you see some of the others that got picked.

Good luck anyway.

Moses? Gotta be kidding!
Fittler coached Moses for Lebo World Cup team and the guy played like a champ but I think both he and Luke are too small for origin.

Yeah .. at the World Cup, Twal played his heart of for Lebanon .. who filter coached, and Fittler even said then that Twal is the next big thing prop out there .. how funny one forgets what one says .. maybe its easy just to throw these words out to the press like click bait. ;-)

But hell yeah Twal should be in there for sure .. !!

Maybe because he’s already been in an Origin, and while he didn’t Star, he went ok, and that experience will be handy for him this year.
For his first run, he handled it ok and will have first crack at it again

There was a post here ,that was asking why Cleary was in the emerging group,, that’s what I was answering.

NOt sure where that post is,
I came back here a while back and when I signed in a notice came up saying “this site is not a secure site”
Not sure what was happening

Mattersons being punished for leaving Easts. Similar to how Critchton was rewarded this year.

I still don't get Fitlers love affair with Mitchell Moses.
Me neither! If anyone was NOT made for Origin, it's Moses.

Guys, you want origin quality players, playing in your side that do not get picked, benefits are, cheaper, available all year round, less chance to start fronting up with extra demands.
Disadvantages are they do not get to experience the origin camp and flavour.
This is why Emerging Squads are valuable.

Secondly GCT, N Cleary was named in an extended training squad.
Everyone named in that squad has been part of or been around origin already. This indicates that unless something drastic changes, those 30 odd players are likely the make up of the yearly squad.
Agree re Matterson and Twal. Matterson was picked in Freddy’s City Origin side at Centre after less than half a dozen games whilst playing 5/8. Perhaps Fitler wants to give him time to make the transformation to full time Second Rower. Twal did get very limited minutes by the end of the year and may need to work a bit to build a reputation still.

Emerging squad .....

How many of those blokes have around 100 games

Shouldn't an emerging squad be players of the future , identifying young talent ??

Would be very interesting to know the stats for a halfback being selected in any sort of rep team (even a train on squad) just after they won a wooden spoon.

This may be a first.
