    Great win bye the young Knights. Makes me proud to be a Newcastle guy. In all honesty I think we played our worst game of the year but ill take the win no matter how scrappy the game was. No disrespect to anyone but myself & the boys I was with thought the number 10 (Christian) I think his name is was the best player on the field yesterday and deserved man of the match. As you all know u16s footy is u16s and these boys have a lot of growing and development to come. Many boys who are standouts at u16s are not even playing the game u20s. Will be interesting in 2018 to see who get the coaching jobs. Morrisey has been outstanding and his results speak for themselves 2 years coach 2 grand finals and 1 premiership. Gleeso 4 years coaching, 1st year outstanding winning everything, 2nd year coaching matts they finished 3rd last very disappointing. Last year with the same players who he had when they won everything made the semi finals. This year 3rd last again is not a great result.

    Would be interesting to see what boys from this years 2017 Harold matts team go up and play SG Ball a year young with last years 2016 Harold matts grand finalists.

    Under 16s were Best, Jenkins, Croker and Purcell.
    Only one I can remember from the 18s is Matt Croker - there were 2 others.

    Under 18 selections:-

    Brock Gardner, Newcastle Knights

    Mathew Croker, Newcastle Knights

    Phoenix Crossland, Newcastle Knights


    Under 16 selections:-

    Bradman Best, Newcastle Knights

    Harry Croker, Newcastle Knights

    Jaron Purcell, Newcastle Knights

    In the U 16's Illawarra have six representative, Knights and Manly three each, so Illawarra must be twice as good as the GF Winner and Runner uP!

    Sorry guys, I meant the Nsw preliminary origin squads named grand final day. Not the Nsw origin pathway squads. (There is a difference).
    Nsw pathways squads were named back in Feb - March. Nsw origin squads were named directly after the completion of both GF on the weekend.
    There were kids named in Nsw origin squad that were not in the pathways squad & there were kids in the pathways that were not named in the origin squad.

    Pathways squads
    U16s - Purcell - Best - Croker
    U18s - Gardiner - Crossland - Croker -

    Preliminary Origin Squads named GF day ..?
    U16s..?
    u18s..?

    There were no squads named after the Grand Finals that I'm aware of mate

    Last year the 16s were named in late May before Origin 1, The 18s in June before Origin 2 and the 20s in July before Origin 3 same in 2015

    When they are named they will be posted in the Rep forum like last year

    Looking at the articles for the NSW pathways squads and in the 16s and 18s it says:

    The NSWRL has revealed its 2017 NSW under-16s representative squad.

    The 33-player squad will be cut ahead of the side's clash with Queensland in the curtain raiser to Origin I.


    And

    The NSWRL has revealed its 2017 NSW under-18s representative squad.

    The 31-player squad will be cut ahead of the side's clash with Queensland in the curtain raiser to Origin II.

    Guess we will have to wait and see but we should know in the next 2 weeks at any rate

    The boys should be playing the queensland champs next week - unless that game has been cancelled in the last few years.

    Last year they named the preliminary squads after the GF as I was there watching & they did the exact same thing this year as well.
    No 100% Preliminary Origin squads were announced after the Harold Matts & SG Ball games at the weekends grand final.

    Just tried to find out who the Qld champs were, and turns out Qld didn't run an under 16s comp this year, so no national club title game this year.

    Harold matts don't play national final any more. Last year was the last time matts played national final. This year only SG Ball play national final

    Jenkins was in the original squad.
    Buderus was the guy who I thought was unlucky not to make the original squad, so good to see him there.
    Big Christian must not be eligible for NSW.

    http://www.nswrl.com.au/news/2017/05/08/squad_announcement_n_388219985.html

    as for players in u16s the original pathways squad there were only 2 selected. Best & Purcell. Then they added Croker & Jenkins only recently & now Buderus & Achurch & Davies

    Anyways congrats to all selected in both age groups. Fingers crossed we get a few in the final teams
