    If Mitchell didn't slip through the cracks given our conversion rate at turning juniors into rep players he'd be playing for the Pumpkin Pickers now.

    That prop we got from Manly - can't remember his name - spent a lot of time volunteering at that hostel - wouldn't surprize me if he got Ramien a start at Manly.

    So I guess to come back "home" was a contributing factor to signing here

    Mitchell is about the only one we lost that I’d defend us on. A 15 year old kid who’s lazy and has a sh*t attitude. What would it say about us if we accomodate that?

    Didn't Cordner get thrown a big contract from the Roosters as a very young junior?

    Tevita Pangai was a lazy sod.
    I used to enjoy watching the Canberra lower grade coaches pulling their hair out trying to get him to live up to his potential.
    Always thought he could be great, but never thought he would be.

    Another great try by Ramien last night. Raged through 3 defenders to score. Can’t wait for him to be running around as a Red and Blue NIB haha

    From the Toohey article in the Herald today, Ramien moved to Newcastle aged 11 and played in the same Hunter Sports High side as Sione and TPJ. I assume he played in the same sides at South Newcastle as well. He moved to the central coast aged 16 and from there went to Manly. He's the same age group as central coast guys like Cogger, Watson and the Saifitis, so probably knows them.

    100% I know for a fact that roosters tried to throw a lot of money at a 15-16 year old Jarrod Mullen

    we probaly never would have gone after pearce if mullen was still around. But how great would have it been to have pearce and mullen in the halves together would be best halves pairing in the comp IMO. Mullen would be a great running five-eight , great kicking game, great passing game and a strong defender.

    What I would do for a Mullen right now! Just without the injuries. That bloke carried our whole team on his shoulders for a decade.

    If you remember, Mullen was set to start 2017 as a bench hooker, with Lamb at 6. The injuries, Brown's youth policy & quest for saving money had him out of favour, he was never going to be re-signed.

    Still sad to see him on the outer, damn shame it went down that way.

    If he gets his hamstring problems sorted and has the will to do it, after a spell in a club side I reckon someone will pick him up on peanuts.

    Could see him slot into a role like Benji did, maybe pick up the odd game as cover with the possibility of redemption. Time will tell
