    You’d hope Brown learns from that failure of an experiment. Ponga shouldn’t be anywhere near the number 6 jersey for 5 years at least.

    Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow. Led the U18’s comp for tries and then scores 3 in his first U20’s game. Not 18 till September I believe. Moves just like a young GI.

    Sounds like he'll be a great player to watch in future.

    Seems to be a growing trend for NRL clubs to target kids who have received Rugby Union scholarships and had private schooling. Ponga, Watson, Keary, Crichton, Su'a, Croft, Taukamo, Doueihi, Roache, Kata, Milne, Moeroa etc & now Tabuai-Fidow all signing with NRL clubs from private schools. Makes sense I suppose, the clubs seeing the benefits of the private education & regimen/discipline of the boarding school.

    Not sure too many Knights if any have come through Newcastle Grammar School which is our closest fit to any GPS school.

    Farrer school near Tamworth is one of the top Rugby League schools and just out of our area, but for some reason we only get a few lower grade players from there, and none have gone very well.

    I think Hayden Loughrey and Jack Cameron both went to Farrer too, but you're right I can't remember too many that went on after juniors to any great heights.

    Farrer kids generally go back to the family farm and work the land or on to UNE to do an agriculture degree, and footie seems to be a low priority.

    In the 70's and 80's my son played University Shield etc with Armidale High School, and Farrer were always the stumbling block. Big healthy kids from hulking wheat and helping on the farm.

    Being from Tamworth the rivalry between Tamworth High and Farrer was always massive

    Tamworth High had a golden period in the 60s and 70s when they were coached by Roy Masters and then Ron Surtees who was the coach for 30+ years

    Great Rugby League nursery in the North West

    Apparently he's signing with the Raiders. Rapana leaving opens up a spot but I imagine it might be insurance if BJ takes up a longer term deal with the Bulldogs if they don't land Latrell...

    looks like the raiders got him.

    Apparently Angus Crighton is on 1 mil per year to play from the bench at the roosters. I'd be happy to take him on a 4 year deal at 700k if the roosters could chip in for the next year or 2.

    I much prefer the look of:

    Crighton
    Fitzy/Sione/Barnett

    to

    Barnett
    Fitzy/Sione

    Yeah Crichton is really going to want to leave a back-to-back premiership team to come here and Roosters I am sure will be happy to pay for a forward in their prime to come play for us.

    I have every faith in a backrow of Barnett, Fitzy, Glassby, wouldn't mind seeing Ese join the backrow rotation as well, wasted as a battering ram as well when we have the Safiiti's and Klem for mine.

    Crichton looks like he has zero ticker and only wants to do the pretty stuff.

    We have a decent back row now with a few seasons under their belts If they can't manage to go to another level under Obi then it'd be worth looking outside, but I don't think that we're at that point right now. I'm all for signing players who add an X-factor to positions that are already weak, but I reckon we can better spend the cap either in the halves, centre or wing.

    Crichton is a good player, but he looks like a great player in a team like the Roosters (who wouldn't) or in a pack of Burgess boys in their prime.

    Crichton did not look like a $1m a year player at any point during his time with the Roosters this season.
