    Looks like the NYC will be a complete new crop, looking forward to 2014 and hopefully a big improvement on previous years

    Probably should clarify in relation to Hawkes, his best position is 5/8, but he can also play centre at a high level. Switched between both at South Sydney last year.

    Awesome. Still more to be added as well for NYC, much more.

    Assuming everyone is available, expect Shaun Hudson (long term injury) my side would be something like:

    Jahrome Hughes
    Tevita Folau
    Rory Humpheries
    Connor Broadhurst
    Brian Kelly
    Christian Hazard
    Kane Elgey
    Oshea Tuiasua
    Jennan Parrish
    Mitch Sharp
    Sa Fifita
    Caleb Morehu
    Anthony Cloemen

    Interchange
    James Iodice
    Vili Tuli
    Jackson Clarke
    Nathan Wilson/Deacon Fletcher (aagghh really tied to fit both in the side, they are both too good not to be)

    I would start the guys still eligible for U18's such as Sam Swift, Shane Wright, Pelo (x2), Harrison Hughes in either MM or ideally QCup colts just to blood them, but when you see the likes in Jennan, Sam Swift etc you will have a smile about how good they are. Sam Swift is the best young player I have ever seen, a real class act on and off the field

    Probably very unfair my comment about Sam Swift, Jennan is not far behind at all nor is Ethan Paikea, Sean Garner etc. We are lucky to have such grounded young men contracted to us. Keep an eye out for Rory Humphery's a very talented outside back, as is Brian Kelly,

    Any comments about these Keebra lads listed for West Tigers? Marion Seve, Lamar Manuel-Liolevave, Watson Heleta, Hala Masila, TeMaire Martin, Sione Alofi.

    Seve (who we had in development squads) and Liolevave were hands down the best players in the GIO cup last year. We blew it by missing out on both, but certainly Seve, he was with us!

    You would think that they would have a better pathway at the Titans, particularly as compared to the unholy merger, so what are we doing wrong, mdrew? Is it because their mates are all down or going down there? Or because they are getting a better package? Or are we so inept?

    Mate we are inept, we assume that guys want to play with us because they are from the region. The number of players we have lost and will lose is unbelievable. The Bronco's have five or six of the better juniors on the coast already locked up and the Bronco's rarely lose players they want to keep. We have an amazing group of young players at the U13 to U16 age groups, but history says a number will end up starring at other clubs because we will be complacent. Woolf should make a difference to keeping these boys on the Coast. We also have made massive gains around the Armidale area with a number of very talented young boys signed. Hopefully better days ahead. In saying all of that we have managed to retain and attract some talented players for the 2014 NYC squad. Players still eligible for U18 such as Jennan Parrish, Sam Swift and the Pelo boys will be a pleasant surprise for people who get to the NYC games. Humpheries should also be a pleasure to watch in the centres. I think that we will be better in the NYC than previous years. In short we have struggled with keeping players because in the past we have been complacent and the junior development area has been very insular, hopefully with the recent changes they may listen and utlise others to assist, including people from this forum

    I agree mate, he is a chance, a real class act, we had him in our development squads from 13 years old, and now.... sigh

    Thanks again for the insight. It is so difficult to get a handle on what's going on at home from so far away.
