was 3 years ago stopped Latrell Mitchell's debut for the Rorters..Must be 18 yo to play NRL..can play ISP tho..which is a but weird IMO..good enough old enough..

Our very own Jordan Rankin is still the youngest to debut I believe,,
Of the modern era perhaps , thought Ray Stehr was still the youngest from memory
Just looked it up , I am a expert

Jordan Rankin was 3rd youngest

Adam Ritson is also in the top 5

I believe Josh Hannay was the impetus for the rule change - didn't Cowboys attempt to grade him just after he'd turned 16, and the League denied it because he was 15 at the start of that season.

And then Rankin and the NRL changed the rules.

Geoff Starling was the youngest in his time (I believe) about 1973.... :sign:

I doubt he'd have his debut this year.

Seems to have ability, but he looks about 70 kg. The only 18 year olds these days that debut in the NRL are physically as big as current NRL players.

Tommy Talau and Zac Cini both are great prospects with good size.

Some good up and coming talent for sure.

Not just here but elsewhere - Bronson Xerri @ the sharks and Bradman Best @ The knights.

Good luck to em. Xerri looks a weapon.

Next to Mal, he's obviously smaller. But it's not as if he's 5 foot and 50kgs.
Like all young halves he'll need a full off season to bulk up and due to only getting back from the schoolboys tour a few days before Christmas he won't get one this year.
