    Love this breakdown mate.

    In your opinion, which position group is our strongest at each age group?

    For the U18 cohort I think that strength and depth wise it is tough to go past the halves, there are some seriously good play makers in that group. But is saying that, you look at players like Sam Stephenson, Cooper Bai, Taylan To'o and Corey Pearce amongst others and the Titans have done very well in have most positions convered.

    For the above U18's in 2024 you have some serious forward depth such as Seth Nikotemo, Arama Hau and Alex Leapai.

    The 2024 U16 cohert also has some significant forward strength and I will put a run down of that cohort soon.

    Ryder Williams will be doing the entire pre-season and 2024 season mate and no doubt others will likely in involved in some format.
