This is what happened.What happened to that anyway. Its like having a cousin no one in the family is proud of, we don't mention him.

I was probably being a bit too subtle with my jab that nothing happened with the relationship and we don't talk about that anymore. The two youngsters I think were from either Leeds or Bradford. The idea of getting youngsters from overseas isn't a bad one. We had success with the 20's around that time. If the club was going to be development club they could of been the place to be for the best young talent. Obviously it didn't work out and the priority should always be the best local talent first but it could of been a good idea.It was a thinly veiled thing when we got Tomkins, we tried a couple of their young guys in the lower grades- not even sure they lasted the season before they got ‘homesick’- oh yeah and we had 1 pre season game before it fizzled out
Blair? Might be why SK gives him so much field time. If he was paid only for whole games, what happens when he’s sin binned?So how many players do u think get whole of game sponsorship? And I wonder what teams they might be in?
I cant imagine any current warrior getting any
ok my point was if the NRL are funding the sponsorship or TPAs for Cooper and Tedesco, and they are both in the same team, how is that not favouritism?
When was this sponsorship given, how much is it, how many players get it and at which clubs. It really flies in the face of a level playing field when 2 players come from one club, but are there more? if it only goes to players in top teams, then isnt it a self fulfilling prophecy?
example. Your a top player in a top team, so here's an NRL sponsorship, which doesnt affect the cap of the club your in, so your top team doesnt need to pay you as much because your wages are getting bumped by the NRL, so the team can afford to pay more for another top player making it a stronger team, making it harder for other teams to compete on a level playing field.
"though Cooper Cronk and James Tedesco benefited from whole of game sponsorship, which wasn’t included." quote from the article.
yet clearly in the example i have given where two players are in the same team, in sydney (surprise, surprise) it does.The arguement that the NRL would use is that these are elite players and they would be paid this extra money no matter what team they played for. So it actually doesn’t favour any team.
They have the potential to be a scarily good, dynasty type team over the next few years. I expect the early '20s to be good for the Broncos for sure.Broncos team looks a lot stronger this season - https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/12/29/brisbane-broncos-2020-round-1-predicted-team/
