Great article with quotes from Kalyn Ponga about the time he spent with the Kiwis just gone.

Looks like the NZRL wants to do this regularly get Aussie youngsters with Kiwi roots to spend time in the Kiwis environment to help get them to commit to the Kiwis which is fantastic.

Would love it they could persuade Jayden Nikorima to spend time in the Kiwis environment alongside his brother, I think it would help get him to change his allegiance to the Kiwis.
 
Some player awards for Kiwi eligible players.

Lesson Ah Mau was named Dragons player of the year.

Ken Tofilau was named Knights NYC player of the year.

Clayton Williams was named Rabbitohs NYC player of the year.

Stoked for ken- good halswell lad.

Well deserved for ah mau too. I've said it before but every time I see him play he just keeps getting better.
It will be interesting to see him reunited in the front row with packer next year. Throw in seb and that dragons forward pack could have a bit of a warriors flavor to it.

I think Ah Mau should have been named in the Kiwis training squad as a recognition for how well he played this season.
 
Hey team, through our website I want to make kiwis aware about the number of youngsters who are being snapped up by NRL clubs as I think it's great. This is the best source for that, so before going hard I though I better get that A-okay from the main posters in this thread - mainly you Selector...

What's your website if I may ask? And to your question I have no problems with you doing that. The intended purpose of why I started this thread was so those fans who are interested could know which players in the NRL are eligible for the Kiwis.

I only ask that you provide a link to this thread and give me some form of credit on your website if that's not too much to ask. Thanks.
