Welcome back to the other ball podcast,another episode of the greatest show going around, and we are back today totalk about some more in Erl footy. Another Rugby League episode for youtoday will be reviewing around twenty three previewing round twenty four andmore interestingly. This week we will be discussing the sort of the youthproduction of H, Genral Club, so sort of looking at the NR academy is howmany players, each team producers, who were the major producers for thecompetition. So we've got that to look forward to so yeah normal stuff. Today, gettingstraight into the round twenty three or a few Thursday night, we have the tinesversus a storm. The storm be the times by fourteen points. I was actuallydecent game tins led sixteen to twelve at half time and they were putting in areally really good shift. Jadan Campbell at full backs reallyimpressive. I think he as much as a j Brinson, an incredible player and hasbeen an origin teamed in the past eighteen months. I think JadanCampbell's the future there. I think full back such an important positionand you need someone who is, as involved as possible, is as dangerouswith all their touches and Jadan camell sort of suits the mold, with the otherfull backs in the competition where Brimston sort of I actually think,Grimson's were suited to the five eighth roll, where maybe a half backcan dominate the game like run the game and then Brimston can sort of be afifth tuckle option guy he can produce something every three or four sets andsome piece of magic, linebreak, ing, running speed, good foot work at theline. I just don't think nowadays, the way the full back position is evolved.I don't think Brimo has what it takes to be a full back, especially relativeto Jadan Campbell, who looks absolutely electric with all his touches a so yeah.That's going to be a really interesting one to see the nights the times dealwith in the next. You know six months because I'm pretty sure Jan camel willsee at the rest of the year. Don't I think Brimston is going to come back so yeah, that's going to be a hugedecision to make an o Brinson grew up in the juniors playing in the halves,so I think that would make more sense. There was rumors of him like, forexample, coming to the Tigers to play six, I'm pretty sure. So I'm not sureif he has an interest in that. But to me, if I was a tones, that's the way Iwould go I'd play Cambell one and Romson at six fired at seven or someoneelse is seven. I just think yeah, that's the best move for the team and,ultimately the Storti really well to win. I know they only won by fourteenpoints, but they tied the record for the most consecutive winds in a row. Ithink it's nineteen O of all time in the right National Rabiau well evendating back to nineteen o eight. So that's pretty incredible and the stormrest epay Ers, so pretty Alpha, move from them didn't even play their old,their full strength, side and still in the end, manage to do it prettycomfortably. Although the Times did give them a bit of a scare, so yeah well done of the Times, they'veactually managed to do pretty well and both games against the storm this year.So that's a bit of an interesting match up for them and yeah. Hopefully, if thetimes ki that format they'll easily make top eight and they'll be a bit ofa dangerous side, i'ld have to say if you're getting within, you know two orthree tries at the storm when you play them, because i know there's a lot ofteams that managing right that able to manage that right now and the stormdoes roll on really. As i mentioned, one of full strength and easily knockedoff a team, so yeah that moved us into friday, six o'clock game rates is, isthe sea gals and i have to say this is i think i mentioned in the preview lastweek, but this is turned into one of the better modern day rivalries for me,if we're thinking about robberies, have...

...sort of only started in the last ten tofifteen years. I think this is right up there and i was doing some research and this isactually the fifth game in six years that have been decided by less than twopoints. So they love a golden point. They love a field goal game and that'sexactly what this one was: a the raiders, the fi playing well actually,the last six weeks. I think it's sort of goin on unnoticed they've had areally tough draw and they don't play pretty at all, but they play reallyphysical and they managed to make every game they're in pretty close. So i knowthe manly didn't have turbo, but manly without turbo have put on some prettygood shows this year. Obviously apart from the first month, but since then sothe raid is to almost get the w. That was pretty impressive and fortunatelyit's going to be a pretty costly loss. I think it might have seen their hopes of finals disappear,but are there still a lot of stones that have to be flipped? I guess in terms of the storyof the rest of the season, that a lot of pages have to be turned. So there'sstill got time to turn that around they've just got to win out really fromhere. So that was a good man from manly justto get the job done, then the panthers is the rabbit os.This was the big game of the round. I was really excited for this one and itlifted up to expectation. It was pretty pretty physical. Pretty fast pace waslike finals, for you really and the panthers ended up being too good forthe rabbit os. The rabbino started well and it looked like they would have thepotential to win the game. The first twenty minutes, but ultimately thepencils were just too good for them. The rabbit os couldn't run the distancewith the men. Ye think the panthers sort of showed sorry about that. I think the panthersreally showed the the difference in class that we've sort of seen in thelast eighteen months, but maybe haven't been able to see in the last six weeks,so the rabos are still going to be a good team. It's a loss. I've mentionedlast week. Fever loses this. Their title chances are gone and look. Ithink they're rabbit os chances. Winning the premiership are very, veryslim like that. If i had, if i had a par chart- and i was breaking down thepercentages of every one winning, i think they would be less than fivepercent, but that's not any sland. I think right now i have the storm atabout seventy percent, so i don't think many teams would have much percentagein my part shop, but i yeah, i wouldn't say i lost as much respect as i thoughti was going to if they lost by thirteen points to the panthers. Here the rabbitis back there just couldn't catch the ball really clearly putting out somespiral bombs. Man saw, i know he got injured, so i don't really want to talkto shit about him, but he can't cut a thing. Johnston even look shaky attimes the trail shirked a couple and they were as they sort of ire on thebig games every time their lack of ability in the ford pack sort of withthe cost like sort of was the end of them, and this is, i have to say, like i don't like being too critical ofplayers, because you know they're, all just people like you and me, but the rabbi o spine. Once again, i didn'tstep up in a big game and i just said the forwards lost the battle and youcan suggest that's why they didn't step up. But for me a ford pack who's so highly talked about as this one,especially the harves walker and reynolds. I think cook does his best. Idon't think he ever dominates a game from start to go, so you can't reallyexpect him to turn a game on its head. He'll produce at odd, run or hit hereor there and then the trail. I actually thought the troubles are right, but thefor me, yeah renan's, kick game. Is goods to kick that magical forty twentythe best for twenty of all time, but cody walk in particular, there's peopletalks of him people saying he's going, to wit the dallyan people saying hisbest play in the game, people playing ship people saying you should play innew self wales, but he never sends up...

...in these big games, and i know it's hard to dominate if yourforward packs, not winning, but if you're a player who talked about inthat that ashalorn, you have to be good enough, even when the tides against youto able to turn a game, produce a line, break the changes, momentum and allthat sort of stuff and yeah. For me, once again, he just went absolutelymissing and it's sort of frustrating because yeah i'm getting a little bitsick, o the media just hyping him up every time. He has a stretch of goodgames, again shit teams, and then he shows us time and time again that he'sjust a solid club player whenever he comes up against a big tent that mostus into saturday. Good in brother panthers, though, moves us intosaturday at rockhampton. This was appreciate game. Obviously, i'm a tybisfan which made it bad, but in just in general the skills are really lie. Nowseventy points were scored, but i didn't think the sharks were eventhat good in the first half and then the tigers were just woeful on thesecond half and the sharks took advantage of that the sharks back,seven, which is too good too fast. I don't know what it is with the tigersthat something madge criticized in the press conference. So i was wondering ifthat was a coaching technique which i was really worried about because itseemed so stupid, but he criticized it and that's the line, speed. If youactually watch the tigers, unlike every time he's ever played drug, be league,we don't actually like so the mark. Let's say it's one: thirty five meterline when our first contact is made it'll either be the thirty five met ohonor. It might be even a couple meters behind that. We don't like meet theattack and that's why i think our defense is so bad is because we're notmeeting them with the momentum, so we're sort of catching them, but ourmomentums or waits on our heels. So they've already run ten meters d beforewe've touched them and then they easily get five to ten meters. Prost contactso you're, giving them fifteen to twenty meters of play so you're justletting them walk out of that, and and that's something i've noticed prettymuch since the middle of the year and i'm really not sure where it standsfrom it's most votable in the. So, if you like, set up at the scrumline on the right side and you do a switch play to the left, even if you'renot like, we don't make you draw and pass we just sort of ease offand you can just run and run and run and even if you don't like, draw andpast get a man through a line you'll easily make twenty meters doing that soyeah the tigers really have to sold that out. I think it's a confidencething. I think they think that as a team they're not going to move up as aline which doesn't make sense because you're with each other at everytraining session, surely- and that's what surely you've done your whole nlcareer but yeah- that's something that needs to be fixed because it reallymakes it hard to win games because you're, letting them run sixty toeighty meters set then you're doing all the tackling, because all the balls upyour end and in the last couple games. That's what's happened to us. I know wehad to win over the cowboys or whatever, but we've done a lot of tackling in thefirst twenty minutes and we've just been bugged by the time it gets likethe sixtieth minute, but the sharks are good here. Look back cuff was reallyreally good. The young star he looks exciting. They've just got some reallyfast place. The shocky. Sadly little tallow k had a really really bad brokenjewel of it. He played really well seoni, catolis, always good on the wingkind of tracy. Any position you put him in he just has a real, hard crack andruns hard into the ball, which it seems easy to do. But if you're a tigers fan,you know that it's not as common as you think and yeah well done to the sharks,give themselves a real chance in the finals hunt. I personally don't reallywant to see them make finals. I don't think they're the most interesting team,but...

...yeah if they wed from here out, they'llprobably get in and they deserve it, but yeah. The tigers reallydisappointing. Don't want to talk too much about thetigers, because this is an nl podcast on a tigers podcast, but i just so i'dgive my opinion on the whole madge dialampei. I would keep him because we've sucked about three coaches downin the last six or seven years and every time we've sucked one it hasn't,really changed the way our club has gone. So you know the saying like if it's notbroken, don't fix it well in this situation, our method is broken and sofix it. So our solutions always been to just suckthe coach. When we feel like it's necessary, which right now it would bein the past, but for me we're doing so poorly. I am happy justgive him another year and see how it goes. My brother reckons we should give himto the halfway mark et next year. I'm happy with that or i'm happy with themjust to say, you've got all the next year. I know the tigers, a criticized blamingivan cleary, but the last of his horrible contract city signed are alldone now. So now just essentially had the full salary cap to build a squallthat he likes and yeah if he can't not necessarily improve on the ladder.I think it's going to be another tough year next year, but if we don't atleast see a direction that the club is going in, that broaden sheens now tooversee the whole football club pretty much, and if we don't start to see adirection or a future, then i think you can move him on. But for me now i justdon't think you get much from sacking him. I think you'd bring in a averagecoach to replace him and you're sort of stuck in the mess you are yet again. Sodo we also go injured in this one, which is really a horrible news, hasbeen the stand out, i'd say of the tiger season, and he s, i think, isactually one of the best five ates in the competition. I think it's reallyoverlooked for being in a poor side, but it looks like he could be up outfor aptor seven months, which danu it's happened at the perfect time of theseason. For us seven months from now is pretty muchround two or three. So if it's as bad as it can be, it's still not horrible,but it's just really bad. Someone. If he's age she's had need problems in thepast, not ideal, and also for him to miss out on a full preseason. It'sgoing to be tough for him to fly next year, which really sucks for the tigers.We do have jackson hastens coming in from england, along with all ofergildart, so they're going to be really interesting players to see. Just evenfrom i would suggest from a neutral point of view, i always like seeingpeople come from the super league and seeing how they go and adapt. But iwatched a lot of super league on the weekend and hastings has a reputationnow and gildart looks like he's. Actually a pretty impressive playoff soreally excited for them to come on a board with ye. For me, marges, you justgot to stick thick with him if anyoneshould go probably just in pasco,he just doesn't seem like he's great at his job, but yeah i'll, just let it maran it. Because at this point, what are you got to lose that moved us into the bordo tonight? Ihave to say this is one of the all time boy super sad to have line up o beerscene. I think five of the bottom six were in play or something like that. Soi wasn't that king going into it and i didn't really miss out anything goodeither. I do much all this game, but the nights one by six points againstthe boar dogs. I know i can boss scored a great tribe. I didn't even see it. Tobe honest, the nights just aren't looking great. I keep thinking, there'sgoing to be a week that just clicks for them and they're going to turn into theshow the potential that they have, but they just really look scrappy. I stillhave them coming seventh i'll, be honest with you, but i'll be honest. Ifthey come up against the roisters or even the eels, i think they might get abit of a whipping in round mine, but i hopefully they can find some formbetween now and then yeah. They just don't look good at all, but well on tothe ballous, i guess for almost...

...upsetting a finals team. Then the eelscowboys once again didn't watch much of this. The eels rops, the als one we knew they were going to win. Theyjust do what they had to do. The cows really disappointing. Ever since themiddle of the season, they've had an awful run home and yeah, just just likeit. The eels that didn't impress me- i'm not, i wouldn't suggest, to anyone,get back on their bandwagon or anything like that. I think they're still in abig spot of bote, then sunday afternoon, forty this was one was at towns fall,so no tanselle to umbar didn't know they didn't even had a stadium there,but it was actually looked like a good day of fun. Forty dragons rostersactually put it on a bit of a show. To be honest, the fist sixty minutes wasreally really good back and forth action. The dragons looked physicalfast, exactly like they did the week before. I think it was against thepanthers and then once again they got gasted out. So this is seriously anissue for the dragons, but the roosters just stormed home got about four triesand fifteen minutes or something to a close out. The game and a teddy had anabsolute another crack, or some of the young guys for the dragons are reallyreally good. So that's a promising sign for them and yeah good win for theroosters. They look like they're going to be an interesting team in finals, tobe honest because with pretty much every week, they have about two orthree outs. So we're never like. I know luke, kirry and stuff like that lisecollins, they're actually out for the year, but we don't really know whatthey're going to be like when their full strength without the players whoare after the season, obviously so yeah. I don't know where to put theroosters right now in terms like a power rankings or something but andthen that led to the game of the week. For me, broncos vis is the warriors.This is an awesome game to be honest, as back and forth all day, refcontroversy, which is like as pucas hate it it's good fun to watch with thehand of god you could call it carabao was in followed, i feel like iwas you and akin in zavy coats and something- and there wasa ball to me. It was ground by coats and they somehow claim that a can putit down. I'm pretty sure, that's what happened, but it was something likethat. The warriors going to try it just wasn't a try, even the the commentates or like what i heard,the bunk of refs, that acan grounded the ball, and i was like what, in therest, like the commentates, didn't hear that part and then, like five secondslater, they saw the tricia d. They were like so confused, but yeah. While sheended up losing the game for the warriors. I hate to put it all on onplayer, but when it comes down to kicking it's pretty easy to pin onsomeone, unfortunately, for race walt, i think it keeps one from five orsomething like that. I think the warriors scored one more trial than thebronchos bronces miss a kick. If i'm not mistaken, norford was really good. I don't wantto put too much pressure on him. I just want him to enjoy his foot. He actuallylooked like he had a lot of fun on sunday was just running around running,plays on the firth chippin and chasing throwing balls to testing you. Theylook like they could be a good combo for the future, but yeah, while in to milford, probably playedhimself into a better contract for next year. So yeah looking forward to see if milfordcan keep that form, because i don't know about you, but my family was up ontheir fewer meal. Forgot the ball on sunday, which is what we love to seefrom him by moving into my top eight, my prediction is stayed. Actually it'schanged a little bit this week and i'm not really sure why i must havepredicted the seagulls to lose to the raid is when i did my ladder predictivebut i've the storm pantses, rabbits, one too three and then i've got manly le frogging the roosters to comeforth. But the root is in a fifth the eels and its six, the night and seventh,and then i've got the titans in at eight, and now i actually have no onemissing out on points difference. I've got everyone full win back soe to me, it's a clearcut top eight. I really do need to look...

...back on my topic prediction. I'minterested. I listen to my tigers prediction. I think i was like one spotoff. I think i said they're like twelve. I think they're going to come likethirteen. So well. Actually i don't know wherethey're goin come, but yeah looks like a good top at manly storm round one if it stays theway it is that's going to be really exciting. Even rushes titans could posea bit of a threat if the eels come sick. The eels nights match, if i have to saythat, could be a bit of a student's first, but who knows hopefully camponcan tear them apart right that moves us into my middle section that i'm doingtoday sort of given a break to the middle sect. Actually, sorry, i need tochat about these super leave robbery round. I've completely forgot that, butthat was actually a big part of my weekend. I watched two of the big gameswatched wig, an versus saint helen's, which was absolutely incredible. If youown fox, sell cao, please go watch that game. It is like actually nothing likei've ever seen before. So i have to say to the super league: it's a really goodproduct, if you, if you as i said before, if you have k or something ilegit recon union, all i do is i check the scores and whenthere's a big game, i may be watch it on a sunday morning or somethingbecause you know you don't want to stay up to a body three and watching her orthat come actually that's what i did for the whole diban free can but don'trecommend it. But yes, i love it. The coverages are awesome,like the statistical analysis they at half time. You know they get up thevideo footage, maks them really really good and analytical points about theplayers and the way the game is going. Ye atossa. The coverage is awesome andalso in general, the league do a great job of promoting a game where, like it's, not that i'm onesport. Well, it's not necessarily non one sport here, but you know it's notas dominant over there and for me, that's probably part of the reason likehere we're a big sport, but we're so folked on. What's wrong with the game,how we can be better, but rather that they just celebrate their game and theythey talk about it in such a positive light. They promote it so well, likethey've got rivalry round, they they're the ones who created the magic round.If you didn't know that they've got one coming up into weeks at the new castlesoccer ground, which should be really exciting, they can get a big crowd intothat. But yeah rivalry round was this week and we gin saint helen's egal the biggestrobbery in english rug, ulea right now, and it was crazy like there's this guycalled willy. I so i don't know much about it ever reallyheard of him. He was an absolute lunatic. Blok tried to get sent offabout three times and yeah man. Man was an absolute cook. Up finally gotsimbing about the fourth time he should like genuinely should have been sentoff like some of the things he was doing. I was like what the hell isgoing on. It was so physical we can didn't, showup, which was disappointing, but yeah. There was a lot of narl players on showand there was some also english talents. I really recommend going and watchingthat one also watch the last twenty minutes of the whole darby. That was anincredible game back and forth the whole time one stan was full of thewhole kafane, all red and white one. The other three stands were full of thewhole of s fense, or what black and yeah it's just a great spectacle,they're singing, there's chanting, which is such a cool thing to see. Iwish we could bring that to our game here, and there was a great finish toit really, so i don't want to spoil it but yeah. I really recommend watchingwigan saint helens and hole versus whole. If you can, maybe you to lightspackage of song on youtube, but if you have watched it or you live in england and follow thesuper league, let me know because i'm really interested to know more reallyenjoying what is going on over there right now. I think there's five roundsand then there's final, so it's a...

...really good time to get into it, andthis is like, i think this is. The closest season has been a while thelast few years, saint helen's is sort of just running in home, so but yeah that moves us into my academysection. So what i'm going to do, i'm going togo through sixteen to one the academy, so this is a bit of a tough one. So theway i've done it there's no real perfect way to do this, but the wayi've done it. I didn't want it to take me six days because i do have a life ofsome sort, although in lockdown so for the last five seasons, i've grabbed ateam list from one round, so two thousand and fifteen o two thousand andseventeen to at a cup, and then two thousand and eighteen to two thousandand nineteen. I had the jersey flag for the new south wales competition and ithink it's like the hastings and deering couple something in queen a cupbut they're both like under twenty and twenty one same sort of ball parkthousand twenty got canceled initiating include because yeah and they so whati've done is i just tallied up how many times a player up from so, for example, i'll give you an example: trail fumarino was in the paramour to at a cup team in two thousand and fifteen he'splayed, or than five no games. So i just gave paramotors one and i prettymuch just tallied up and then, whenever a team was tied on the number, i splitit by quality. So there are some teams: we've only produced nine or ten andthey're really high quality, there's others who produced twenty one andtheir sort of what miss. But that's the general gist. There's definitely goingto be some who slip through the crack is on a full proof, method and but yeah. I was just interested to seebecause i'll sing about the tigers and what we've gone what's gone wrong and ifeel like every other team. They you know bring in some young stuff, thebench or something one week and they really exciting. They sort of tear upthe game for five minutes and get fans really hyped up. I sort of like thedragons with talate a moan the other week, amone, where the tigers i feellike i haven't had that in a while. So i was just wondering i'll be producingenough plot talent so that let me down this robit hole and signing in atsixteen speaking of rabbit holes. It's the rabbit, os they've only producednine anrews and the another issue. Sorry i didn't mention that when ifinish my introduction, it's sort of hard to know whether this means theteam of the best scouts, because they've picked up these juniors and putthem into their junior programs, or if this team is actually producing thetalent, you can't really split it to both the good skills, so we're justgoing to credit the teams where the credits de so the rabbit as only nineplayers. Now this sort of makes sense. It's a really small section of sydneythat they're given sort of surrounded by an al teams them and the roosters they haven't produced many big players.Angis criton was one of the biggest cale grain adam. Do ken coloma tell memore recently, but yet they're down the bottom, only producing nine players,manly were next in nine, however, they're produced a lot of quality, sothey have not necessarily seen the best ofall that quality. It they've seen a lot ego tobe's. Obviously the main onemanasseina i know he's had his whole off field saga, but if he does get backon the field, i think it could be a very good player. I don't really wantto talk about people with on going court issues, because i don't want totalk about a guilty person, but they've also got jesse rabian, nico, hinds,brad, parker or the cuarto. So there's a lot of skill there just don't muchvolume, which makes sense once again, man, legs, full area and numberfourteen. I have the bulldogs, they had produced ten players and not manyplayers of note with the greatest spect. I don't that they ten plays with morethan five games, don't think any of them have played more than the thirtygames. So that's any interesting one to note not producing many there out ofthe canebrake the titans were in at thirteen now the titans had a lot ofplayers that sort of jumped around they might have started the times and theteam might have come in then got them.

Brian kelly was one that i wassurprised at didn't know he actually stem from the times, because if youremember, he debut through the manly system max king of the storm, fame, aj,brimston mopolitans, so actually quite a bit of home grown talent on the goalcoast, the number twelve i've got the warriors the warriors. If we did this from twothousand and ten to two thousand and twenty one, the why his legit might befirst, but their production sort of slide down the last couple of years,they have produced twelve players. Maradona core of paramount of fame isone just to vangas a publie harris to vida, elise tola. So a lot of themcoming through the warri system number eleven i have the raiders and theraiders are a twelve team, a twelve player team as well, not much talentcoming out of the raider system. I believe panga played for them at somepoint. Chot rich is from there then they've always ly got rates. Young guns,like halls brass, is shields to moco and lock on croker of manly fame. Thatputs the storm in at ten is surprised by this, not sure if i was expectingthem to be a higher a law. To be honest, i was interested to see where they'llbe because they're great scouts, but a lot of their players, usually a bitolder, that they scout who have sort of flopped a system somewhere, and thenthey pick them up from reserve grade. So not surprised they're, not too high.They had twelve players. Nickel kluck star was one who's been in their system,jack, turpin, jesse, arthurs, josh, ka to know abrown which was interesting, harry grand bran trindle, which wasinteresting, scotty drink water. Then this isn't a pun, but there's so meantto be a joke. I'm a tigers fan, so i don't get a mad, but the tiger at night the times have produced thirteenplayers, a lot of come through kebra park, but yeah, not much talent,papenhagen, obviously, and then, apart from that, there's so many guns tovadit, to tollar, tenyu, tenny, old, paseca and then the rest of like tigers,players like jacob little to tom mc cayley and all that stuff race stonefrom power. That was interesting, but yeah no much quality there at all,which is obviously something that the tigers need to fix up because they usedto be one of the great junior producers. And that's probably, why sheetings hepreen brought back paramount in at eight. They have four teen players:they've got some good players in their mid. Read many dill brown bevan french,for we may one rema smith, so they've got some good ones in there. Dragons inat seventh, the dragons have produced fifteen players, not much quality zack lomax about dufty. That's about it really luciani le loir,so yeah a lot of players not too much quality from the dragons. But i thinkthe next cover union is going to be really exciting. Cowboys are in atsixth, there produce fifteen players. They had a freaking gun team in thetoyota cup, go back to twenty fourteen to two thousand and sixteen look attheir toyota cup teams. I don't really know what rent wrong. I know they had areally good neral team at the time, so the players might ave left thinkingthat opportunities elsewhere, but they had really kick out. Brandon smith,braden, hamlin, nuelly cohen, has callin palmer. I know joram hughes wasin there somewhere. He he didn't count towards this, but i know he played forthem at some point. They war said jake clifford, cory, horsbak dejan as seemore recently, but yeah a that was a really interesting one. I didn't thinki know it's a big area, but i didn't think there would be too much talentfor some reason are the night and it fifth they had sixteen players, but notthe most talent. I know i keep saying that, but when we get to the big teams,you understand what i mean. Are they that syfety twins tom styling and theyare probably the man monte, not right, heading into the top for now ofproducers of talent in the nil sharks? O fourth, which i was very surprised at,i have to say in the last, especially...

...on a shame. Flanagan and recently iguess they do. You know two or three young guns get blood of the year andthey usually pretty good, but i didn't know that they would have this sort ofvolume, a a card, germana saco kind of tracy, the brailey brothers mortale trendle, will kennedy, jesse,ramia, call, flatting and so yeah they've produced a lot of good playersactually and they're produced eighteen. So whoever is in charge of the junior mencrinal, absolutely killing it. I think people should go, have a look at what'shappening there, because i don't think: look i'm from albun never lived insydney, but to me crenel is not like the biggest area when you compared tolike brucine pen worth, and i think it's a pretty affane area. So i didn'tthink there would be that many like families, but i could be completelywrong. I'm just going of what i sort of understand about the geography ofsydney cancers in its third. Obviously, a lot of their current team has comethrough their own system, so they i knew they were going to be at the top.They have twenty players: brannad and moses leota dylan, edwardsnathan, cleary drome, lui, quarry wade, calvain brian tire, it's pretty much astheir whole team right now, plus a few others who have not been god enough tomake the team and look seek elsewhere for game time, dan larry, so yeahpenrith in it. Third, the broncos are in a second not really surprising.There towards the top, obviously got probably the biggest in our real marketin terms of participation per team. If we're going to say that, so they havean access to a lot of good player. Still can't keep sam walk up anyway, out tail jo offer. Hang gali, jen seadry arrow to eat a pengo attorney. Stags paint has jorn ricky tenebo, soyeah twenty players, some good players, not the most quality, but a lot of themstill got time to sprout, as this hoist does and then this one shot be the most. The roost is a number one and i thoughtthe roosters would be really along this list. Obviously, a really small sectionof sydney, not many families there so and obviously eastern suburbs rib unionheavy. They produced twenty one players. So i think a lot of this can go down toscouting, but that is still a very good skill to have as a club so yeah. I gaina lot of respect for the roosters doing this research, their best players withthe tre mitchell, joe mane, conon watson, mama, rosky, vick radley sentberyls catilus, preneur jackson, hastings, so yeah they've produced alot of players and a lot of them have gone on to play for them, which isalways good to see and they produced a lot of good players. So yeah rush isnumber one. So that's just a little insight into the youth production ofplayers in the nil who, which teams a batting above the average which teamsas sort of stealing other teams players prettymuch, but i like it's still skilled to scout players from other systems andall that, but i just want to be interesting to check that out so yeahwell on to the roosters prong case pantes. I guess the main top three that interested to see if the tigers canmove up that scales a fan in the next couple of years. They are time foraround twenty four preview, the penultimate round at the regular season.At this point, i'm going to be honest, don't know about you guys, i'm sick ofthe regular sea, so i just want to get into finals. Might because i'm atiger's fan, but honestly, i'm just happy with the top a right. Now, an wejust called off call the day that but all jokes, a sin. I do think the seasonis a couple weeks too long. I think the gap between origin, three and financeweek. One is too long because you get time to pick up themomentum again and then it's sort of like it's hard to maintain it intofinals. For me, it should be like twenty two rounds. Origin finishes,maybe around eighteen. You get a good month to really build back into theseason and then finals bang your pumped. So i don't know, that's just what ireckon so thursday night we've got the night versus o titan is is a huge gamein terms of this season. If the times...

...loses, they could be in danger ofmissing out and the night secure finals and pretty sure, and if the times winthis, i don't think it affects the nights too much, but it'll reallybroost in their chances. So the main in enounce froze in clamis suspended pg'splaying six tales out. There wasn't a reason there, so he might have beendropped. My bince mo pot away commit train and fill sat, philip sammy returnfor the nut titans and i'm actually tipping the titans this week. Thefavorites are the nights, the lines one and a half, so i'm actually going totake the nights. I'm actually taking the times at the line and had to head.I know the time having been winning too much recently, but i think they've hada lot of honorable losses against a lot of good teams and yeah. What i saw onthursday night against the storm to me was a lot better than what the nightsput up in the last couple weeks. So i know the nights probably have the star,how a beat the titans, but for me the titans all day six o'clock in mccurry versus raiders,another really good game, similar position on the ladder, tough one totip. I think i'm going to go the raiders, the last six and a half in therads favors. So i might go. The war is the line and i think we're going to gothe rades head to head. I know the worries, a really good form, but the rat is actually, as i mentioned inthe review before i actually think they're going on to the rendar a littlebit. They obviously should be doing better than they are not saying they'redoing well, but they've been competitive in a lot ofgames and i think, that's sort of being unnoticed because they're not gettingthe results, so i think if they bring that physicality that they have in thelast month to this game, i think they'll be too strong for the warriorsand i think the warriors were back down an think they're the biggest fan of aphysical fight that we've got the old darby, the ruches resse the rabbit os,the two foundation- clubs, i guess belmaine- would have something to sayabout that and i'm sure a few others. But you know what i mean karen and natbutcher injured, lockland lamb to play center. I didn't read the internats forthe warriors raiders, but at this time actually do mention them. Sono salvanin for harris to beta, which is really weird, so harris to beta dropped,chattans a roommate to the team, except he has not won a game for the warriorsyeah. I didn't get that nickerin back on the bench: mat lodgin for javan tonor brown nickel cluk star on the bench again. Horsbak returns from its bulldogloan to be on the bench. Sorry about that, a lucky lamb to play center eganbutcher play back row, kam kloane out for two weeks, suspension mantal seasonlikely over unfortunately jackson polo to replace him for the rest of the year.Rabidosque is twelve and a half. This is, i think the rush is the mostunpredict team of this. At the moment like i have no idea how good they are,i'm going to have to tip the rabbit os, but i'm probably going to take theroosters out the one i think twelve and a half pre generous to a team that justgot beaten comfortably by the panthers, but i will be kipping the rabbit os. Ithink their forms too good and the roosters, like they've, got a lot of players intheir team who are pretty inexperienced. Some are playing out of position, so ithink the rabbits get a job done. Dragon testis cowboys saturdayafternoon in rock hampton, which was an interesting grass i'll say that muchlike i probably should have been trimmed a little bit more before kickoff last week, but tyras slown replacement dufty, like laura returns,jan salvan, to play nine freddy lassa, i believe on the bench asa loan player for the dragons tamalo felt into a long return for the cowboyshomes, moves to sent up griffin, name back on the bench from suspension.Dragons favorites line tore an a half. This is another tough one. This couldbe a great ground and, frankly, league. Actually, my initial flaw was to tipthe dragons seeing those cowboys in inns. I am tempted, and they are you,that's all i'll, say the dragons a look...

...decent in the last couple of weeks. Forabout sixty minutes. I, like that they're playing the youth. I think theyouth the few well obviously the future ofthe club that anomia statement. However cowboys you lot of ends, i'm actuallygoing to go. The cowboys could be gun because the dragons arealso ju brut. Who cares at this point in season? Shacko, bronco's satday?Second game tom anim for the sharki gamble, sadly ruled out for the. If ofthe broncos, that's about all the news. There, sharks, favorites lines, fiveand a half got to tap the sharki. Unfortunately, there in the finals hunt.So i think they've got more to play for broncos are good on sunday, but it was they described to victory really and iit was of verisas what race walshes kicking. They wouldn't have got the jobdone: storm messes eels, prime time, saturdaynight you got to tip the storm, a line.Twenty two and a half the few team changes, brandis beth, just in alm,dram hues, return, hind shifted to the bench. Interestingly, george jenningsout again same injury, dean army returns. Vergo replaces sebo for theeels. I actually don't think they're going to win by that much. I think eelswill keep it tight, not like six points or anything, but i don't think they'regoing to lose by twenty two and a half. I didn't think the game is going to be like. I don't think we're ever going tothink the ell's going to win and i'm going to go. The storm still becomfortable ven, not quite twenty two and a half, then sunday, we've got adouble header at relude, which i'm really excited for, while actually i'vejust remembered the second half of it not excited for that, but did enjoy redcliff footy the other weekend seagle. This is bodos turbos back by parkersback there's about sixty eight changes for the dogs. Don't come to read themout the line. Twenty nine and a half full manly got a tip manly head to head,but i'll probably take baldos of the line. I know their teams or in prettyatrocious right now, but well, look i swear. Bulldogs, don't getblown out could be wrong. Manly could bon by eighty but yeah, obviously manlyhad to head and then sadly, the ultimate the culmination of the roundpanthers tigers, a red cliff. Look, i'm a tigers fan and i'm not excitedfor this. We looked also we we look so bad onsaturday and the pantes look like they just hit form again fisher harris andto overturn just our like dilla edwards named, don't mind that actually do weout for the year. Mention that before horrible news, jock batton picked toplay six happy with that. It might be a tough game for him, butgive the given the young man a chance, jacob little returns at nine simpkin.The bench definitely enjoy having two hookers. I don't think either of themare good enough or fit enough to play. Eighty minutes on their own yet say farback on the bench really happy for him was worried about his injury when joshalwy really dangerously came late for men,an no i forget, there's a name for it is a cannibal tackle. I do know itsounded, like i just said cannibal, but i mean cannon ball, say far back on thebench happy for that to a longing simpkins walters dropped, i thinkpretty stiff on to a long eat. Simics and walters deserved a horrible defensein the middle on the weekend, panthers the favorite lines, twenty eight and ahalf i'm taking the ties of the line, not sure why don't see us gettingwhipped could be mistaken because we are looking shot at the moment. I thinkthe two wins against the bullos in the cowboys was very disguising of our actual form. The head to head pretty life savings onit, i'm happy to jink suit, because i'm a tigers fan putt your life savings onit. The line might take the tiges of the line. Honestly, i know twenty eightand a half, it's quite a big amount of points could see it being you knowforty to actually that's twenty eight...

...hal could say being at thirty eight totwelve. They go. That's not twenty eight, a half, but that is the end ofmy round twenty four preview. I only got one more regular season preview,which is really exciting, so pump for finals wish they were this weekend tobe honest, but hopefully we get crowds in for finalsbut actually are pretty sure the whole season in brisbin anyway, but yeah, that's so all for today.
