    I thought Cogger might miss out because he is in firstgrade.
    I suppose the saifiti's are out because they are Fijian internationals.

    Saifitis have never been asked to represent Nsw which is weird because they were born in john hunter hospital, Fiji is 2nd tier international so they should be eligible for Nsw, got me stuffed why they were not picked. Same goes for players like Latrell Mitchel and Connor Watson from the roosters and Bevan French from Parramatta, all these boys should of been picked

    Probably because all those guys are first-graders now, most of those guys will never play NYC again. It's under-20s Origin, so they pick players that are still playing NYC.

    Not that I saw it, but I've read the Saifiti twins were both about 20kg overweight before they joined the Knights, and even when they started out in NYC they weren't the most mobile guys in the world. I'd say they weren't on the radar at under 18s level because they were far from fit.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Both Cogger and Denniss are a year young for this team, which is a big deal.

    While we are talking about guys who have missed out, this is the year Sione would have been an under 20 rep, if he hadn't already played for Australia. Without looking up the teams, Sione was probably captain of some of these guys at under 16s and under 18s level.

    Sione actually did play in a game of 20s Origin, a few months before his debut. Him & Mamo tore it up.

    Siro's Say - NSW Under-20s Team

    Wed 13th July, 09:15AM
    [FONT=&amp]
    True Blues legend Paul Sironen gives his verdict on each of the NSW u-20s Origin players.

    The NSW U-20s play Queensland in the curtain-raiser before Origin III tonight at ANZ Stadium.

    Catch the stream right here on www.NSWRL.com.au.

    Here are Sironen's thoughts on each of his squad members:

    1. Matt Dufty - St George Illawarra Dragons

    Employment: Community Development Officer-Traineeship

    Education: Cert IV - Fitness

    Matt is super quick, this is his third year of under-20s now, a prolific try-scorer who is very safe under the high ball and a great attacking player.

    2. Brian Kelly - Gold Coast Titans

    Employment: Teacher’s Aide - Mudgeeraba State School

    Education: Cert III - Education

    He is a blockbusting strong winger who was an absolute standout in last year’s game with four tries. He’s had a disrupted season this year with injury but he’s a well known performer at this level.

    3. Cory Denniss - Newcastle Knights

    Employment: Telecommunications Technician - Commworkx

    Meteoric rise to first grade this year, Cory has he’s proved himself capable at NRL level. When he dropped back to this level he’s been very strong.

    4. Curtis Scott - Melbourne Storm

    Employment: Apprentice Carpenter / Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Cert III - Carpentry

    Class player, played NRL but had an injury earlier in the season and is coming back from that, but again he’s a proven match-winner at this level. Very aggressive and great footwork.

    5. Reuben Garrick - St George Illawarra Dragons

    Employment: Building Labourer

    Education: Bachelor of Commerce

    He played in the NSW u-18s Origin side last year; he’s had huge improvement in his physical dimensions. He’s playing with a lot of confidence, but the improvement in his game from the past 12 months is remarkable.

    6. Lachlan Croker - Canberra Raiders

    Employment: Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Bachelor of Sports Science @ UC

    Croker is another one who has played NRL, played Intrust Super Premiership NSW level this year and last year and he’s a proven guy at this level. He’s been here before, battled a few injuries but is a class player, a good organiser, got a good kicking game and will steer us around the park.

    7. Jack Cogger - Newcastle Knights (c)

    Employment: Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Bachelor of Social Science at UN

    Currently playing NRL and has really stood up to the riggers of that. He had a fantastic game against Canberra the other week and handled Josh Papalii for 80 minutes and did a great job, he will be really dominant coming back to this level, and along with Croker will get us around the park. He’s our captain and been with us in this program for the past few years.

    8. Oliver Clarke - Penrith Panthers

    Employment: Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Bachelor of Physiotherapy at WSU

    He played in the NSW u-16s, u-18s and u-20s Origin sides. He played last year and this is his fifth year in the development program, and is a tireless worker, we’ve got big wraps on him. A tradesmen like performer, he does his job, good motor and always ready to go.

    9. Grant Garvey - Sydney Roosters

    Employment: Gym Assistant

    Education: Cert III - Sport and Recreation

    Grant is another one who played last year because he’s a good aggressive player, gets a lot of good touches out of dummy half and will have a good combination with the halves pairing.

    10. Alex Twal - Parramatta Eels

    Employment: Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Bachelor of Business & Commerce @ ACU

    This is the second year of u-20s for Alex, and played u-18s too so he’s a guy that’s been in the program for several years. He’s very similar to Oliver Clark, a good motor and will just keep going.

    11. Tyrell Fuimaono - Parramatta Eels

    Employment: Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Bachelor of Business & Commerce at WSU

    Tyrell was one of our best last year in the u-20s, was definitely in the top three players. He’s a classy centre/back rower, strong on the edges; he’s another kid that’s played u-16s, u-18s and u-20s for NSW. Great footwork, strong fend, good ball-carrier and a strong aggressive defender.

    12. Bayley Sironen - Wests Tigers

    Employment: Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Bachelor of Marketing & Business at ACU

    Bayley will do his job on that edge, he’s been pretty good for the Wests Tigers. He’s another one with a good engine, he will make his tackles and do his job, and will look to link with his outside backs as well.

    13. Nat Butcher - Sydney Roosters

    Employment: Fulltime NRL Squad

    Education: Diploma of Financial Planning

    If you haven’t seen his stats, look them up. Butch has a great motor, leading the NYC in a lot of areas, he’s just a work-a-holic, a great kid with a massive future in the game.

    14. Zac Woolford - Canberra Raiders

    Employment: Cleaner

    Education: University Foundation Course at UC

    Second year in u-20s and is a big improver, he’ll get out of dummy half and gets the forwards coming onto the ball. He’s a great talker, very aggressive, and good to have around camp too, he’s very chirpy, a bit like his old man.

    15. Taniela Paseka - Wests Tigers

    Employment: Factory Labourer

    Education: Diploma of Business

    Big Taniela has probably been the find of the past couple of months in the NYC. He’s got a huge frame and is a powerful runner of the ball, and he’s devastating in defence when he gets a hold of guys. He’s a kid who is only 18 that will be training full time with the Wests Tigers next year and they have earmarked him for big things.

    16. Max Elliott - Brisbane Broncos

    Employment: Warehouse Administator

    Education: Bach of Sport and Exercise Science at ACU

    Max is a product of Lismore, very similar to Oliver Clark and Alex Twat in terms of his big engine and a good work ethic. He moved from the Gold Coast up to the Broncos. Just a tradesmen-like front-rower, he will carry the ball for you all day, poke his nose through the defence and get a good play the ball, and he’ll wrap up the middle too.

    17. Tevita Cottrell - South Sydney Rabbitohs

    Education and Employment: Landscape Gardener

    Education: Bachelor of Sports Science @ ACU

    Tevita could play centre or in the back-row, a product of the South Sydney system who has been here before in the u-16s and u-18s. He knows what’s expected of him, and when he’s given his chance he’ll come on and fill a couple of spots in the side. A devastating ball runner and a strong defender.

    Cogger has hardly seen the ball since Woolford went on. He only seems capable of passing to Croker.

    NSW would be miles in front if they had finished a bit better.

    Typical under 20s. Great attack, defence a bit suspect.
    Cogger had a very good game. He might have been better if he'd seen some more ball. I think he scored a try (the commentators couldn't identify the scorer, but looked like Cogger to me).
    Denniss had a few good runs, but wasn't one of the better players.

    NSW 36-22 Qld I think was the final score - something like that.
    Qld got a few late tries to make it look more respectable, but they got smashed.

    Cogger was going great till Woolford came off the bench as hooker. Woolford had a great game, but he only wanted to link with Croker. Despite that Cogger came into the game a bit more later in the second half and was one of NSWs best. Cogger was very strong in defence for a little guy.
    Denniss was on the side where Qld scored most of their tries, but it didn't seem to be his fault so much as Croker and Kelly. He had some strong runs, but he didn't stand out.
