    Ben Trbojevic isn't even the best young back at Manly.
    I didn't really follow his brothers in the 16s and 18s, and maybe they didn't develop till they were 18 either, but Bradman Best was miles and miles better than Ben Trbojevic at 17.

    Val Holmes to Cowboys confirmed for 6 seasons. Parr also said that doesn’t rule out chasing Latrell

    Another elite young outside back that will help transform one of the worst back lines for season 2019 to one of the best if not the best backline on paper in 2020?

    We’ll see. It seems to me that Latrell has issues which are affecting his performance.
