    The Croker brothers, Mat and Harry, both tick a lot of boxes.
    They both play long minutes, make very few mistakes, always do more than their share of the work.
    They aren't guys who stand out a lot, but they get through a mountain of quality work during a game.

    NYC doesn't exist, but at this stage I think a state based under 20s will happen.

    How doesn't the coach who took the Knights Harold Matthews cup Grandfinals the last 2 years get a gig. Poor Moz.
    Knights are a complete joke. Disgraceful how they have treated him. No wonder some of there best juniors have left.

    We haven't seen the full details yet, but Wests have indicated that they are expanding the high performance program and that Dureau and Kostjaysyn will be also working as skills coaches too, so you would think they will be fulltime employees. I'd imagine they will also have assistant coaches.
    Anyway you look at it, it looks like more money is getting spent on fulltime coaches for the Mathews and Ball squads, so I don't know how that's a bad thing.

    As they said in the Sunday paper a few weeks ago - having Kosjaysyn, Dureau, Lowrie, Woolford and Brown as our coaches means we have recent NRL experience in the coaches of all 5 grades.

    There was an interesting article in the Sydney Herald last week about Manly raiding Western Sydney for juniors. They pointed out that many of the players in the under 16s side we beat in the grandfinal were being bussed in for training. They used the term "they are fishing where the fish are". I think they said Manly have never won the under 16s, or maybe they said they haven't won for decades.
    We have made 3 of the last 4 grandfinals, and won 2 of them.
