Great move. The big question mark at this club is who will take the reigns off Hodgson in 3-4 years time. Developing a good hooker under his wing is by far our biggest priority in the next year or two.

Should have been Paterson. He was in front of Starling on skill.

Pretty much exactly the same background as the guy he replaces.

Not to sure. I think he was signed but with the late arrival of Starling and the lack of game time in cup from a development perspective he was probably questioning his future. Cant blame him going to sharks (only read this) when he goes up the pecking order to sit behind Brayley. Thats the unfortunate side of us not owning our own NSW cup side.

Could not agree with this more. A clear, one stop shop development path. The benefits to training along with our high performance centre make it a must. Would be great for the recruitment of second tier players

That only gets you so far until everyone works out that the so called “pathway” doesn’t exist like other clubs with there own reserve grade. Then try and attract/ purchase the best juniors! You become a dumping ground for second stringers

That's a management/saleman issue for Stick and Mulholland.
I trust those guys to sell the value and development of the club... it's simple here, if you're good enough you're going to go far, and if your not... sadly, youre not

Feels like Stick is going to be the sort of guy who can sell the vision of this club quite well. And our pathway is not different to any other these days... which is sad... but it is what it is.

I guess thats why we will end up as the English branch of the NRL in another 2 years. Thats of course until Isaac Moses takes control and Ricky has not much say. Just a matter of time. Lets see how many of the 20’s from this year push through.... at other clubs

Whilst I would like to see us have our own NSW Cup side too Ronny, the reality is this.

What do the Roosters, Raiders, Storm, Eels, Sea Eagles, Sharks and Broncos have in common? They made the finals in 2019 and none of them had their own NSW or Qld Cup side.

The only team to have their own NSW Cup side and make the finals was Souths who ran their own side in 2019 after many years with North Sydney.

Newcastle, Penrith, Dogs, Dragons, Tigers and Warriors all ran their own NSW Cup teams and didn’t make the finals.

What's wrong with our relationship with the Mounties? Seems to be a cost-effective way of managing our second tier players.

Although I don’t know the ins and outs of the deal it seems good to me as well.

We have full control (as seen in round 25 with Ricky resting players at a huge cost to Mounties).

Other than them not being Raiders I can’t see any problem.

Not disagreeing just see it as a positive. This year we had a very strong 20’s squad with only about 6 players getting an opportunity at mounties and for one game at a time. From a development perspective my opinion is that you should be pushing the better 20’s through and testing them at that level or how do you know what you have. I do also think mounties went into panic mode when they lost 8 or 9 straight but regardless just don’t think the pathway creates an ability to test players. As an example i look at Penrith who have a strong junior base. They played over 50% of there 20’s squad in NSW cup consistently. Yes a few pushed through to grade but how else do you know what to keep and what not to. They where very competitive in NSW cup and i would think have sewn up future potential players on light money as a result. Do i think any of our 20’s could go straight jnto grade early?? Maybe Medlyn Paterson and Smith Shields all as back ups with a good pre season but the others just need a full year jn cup. Not the full squad but the key guys who just need time and there probably 8 of them. Just an opinion.

I think the issue is whether it’s offering the best development and pathway for the players. I’m not sure that spending every weekend, except a few, heading down to south western Sydney to play in a team that has only one training run together... before playing their NSW Cup game is the best arrangement.

And once the Under 20s pass 20 years of age... and miss the top 30/development contract... they either get picked up by Mounties and likely have to move to western Sydney... or leave our system. I think that’s a shame for rugby league in the district. Some might stay in Canberra and play Canberra Raiders Cup... but the best of them head to other clubs.

I’m not sure we’re getting any players out of the Mounties district either. It’s a Parramatta junior zone and there are a heap of clubs in western Sydney picking up the best juniors. It’s not like Souths Logan, where we were getting a lot of good young players coming through... ie there was a real pathway to the Raiders.

Mounties is a good club and they’re good rugby league people there and I will support them while we’re affiliated.

I might be wrong in all that... but it’s just where my head space is at present.

Canberra Raiders sign young North Queensland talent

THEY spearheaded Kirwan’s National Schoolboys Cup title, but next year hooker Adrian Trevilyan and half Brad Schneider will join the Canberra Raiders Under-20s on multi-year contracts. They will be joined by Townsville Blackhawks under-20s player of the year fullback Adam Cook.

Kirwan Bears champion winger Steven Numambo has also been targeted by the Raiders with the club in discussions with the teenager.

Sad fact of the matter is that the NRL offers virtually no incentive to develop talent. Look how successful we have become since moving away from it.

This is a really positive story. Not only have we managed to sign some of the best schoolboy talent in Australia, they are all spine position players (hooker, half and fullback). More importantly they are all from North Queensland and have agreed to leave the clutches of the Cowboys, Broncos and Titans (lol). This is surely a positive sign as to how we are now seen as an NRL Club in terms of attractiveness to go and play for.

I read this as Raiders sign the next Smith, Cronk and Slater trio... :D

I liked Patterson, he looked the goods. However, Hodgo isnt going anywhere anytime soon, and he is probably a yr or 2 too far along in his career to look at being the successor.

Our halves selections for development players hasnt worked out so far, but Westcott looked ok too. Pity he seems to be going too.

The NRL need to be serious about allowing us a pathway for youth and second tier development.
