Yeah roman was a mistake letting him back in, a few following him over - but that move to Kura ain't for everyone, culture is different; I know i've been over there for a look and many of our juniors playing there still hang around the club telling us, it's for the $. Trustme Roman ran kura down to the ground to us , and 12 months later lol he bargained his way back in.
We are losing some NYC juniors, people in the 20's set up are telling our kids that same line to move to Howick or Papakura to make them grow - what a load of crap, both money clubs that have no decent juniors coming through. Funny that a NYC Junior said those exact words to us this week at training ,why he's leaving for Kura????? I don't think James Taylor developed much when he moved from Northcote over to Kura in 2012 - he was on good coin that year as well.
Hasn't come from the coach more the support staff I hear,about kids moving around to other clubs,so I'll take that back what I said about Jones last year on here,pushing south players to Pt Chev. Maybe James Bell might come to Mangere and grow more as a player????
Did Roman want to be player coach?
What mangere juniors are still at kura? I thought they went back.
Havent seen the 20s squad yet but wouldnt Mangere have 30-40% of the squad already?
But as long as they aren competiting with each other for spots im sure warriors dont care.
Papakura dont have any decent juniors + James Bell, George Edwards both just made 20s lineup.
But not 100% they might be manurewa juniors.
Would be dumb mover to move to Pt Chev = they already have a stacked team.
Moving clubs is good for a change sometimes(for some) especially if you get to learn from Veterans + quality coaches.
Hopefully Mangere can hold onto a few quality old heads for all the young bucks to learn from.
Thats how you win Fox championships
