Will you be covering the trials?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Hopefully a few good ones make the journey from QLD. Some may even come down for the HM season, now that the QRL has canned the CC competition :/

Apparently that is what is happening. Restructuring of the junior set-up. Will only focus on U18 and U20.

Still too early to tell what the hierarchy want to do with the U16 age group. Not sure how the QLD U16 side will be selected [this years side was QAS dominated and not selected on form].

Already confirmed that the QRL Junior State Carnival (U13/U14/U16) is also being restructured in removing U13's.

Some strange things happening...

Zane Wallace signs with Canberra Raiders U18s squad

Hooker Zane Wallace has signed with the Canberra Raiders and will join their under-18s SG Ball side next year. Zane was placed on Canberra’s watch list after former NRL and Logan talent scout Mark Tookey recommended him several years ago.

“He is a tough kid, but he has all the skills to make it,’’ Tookey said. “If he makes it, it would not surprise me. Nothing has been given to him on a platter and he has worked hard.’’

“My dad was sick and ultimately passed away and (Tookey) offered me a lot of good advice — he’s been a good male figure in my life,” Wallace said.

Young rugby league uses Canberra Raiders to inspire junior players

Group Nine Club Young Cherrypickers are helping the Raiders expand their regional reach and inspire the next generation of rugby league players, by incorporating the Raiders logo on their playing apparel.

The initiative came from the Young junior rugby league, with former President of Young junior rugby league Nick Hall wanting the participants of the competition to identify with the Raiders and show some pride in their uniform.

This Steelers team is all over the Raiders at present, they look bigger and stronger, huge breaks up the middle on that set, but they finally make an error. Raiders ball for the first time, essentially.
