The only think I can see is the clubs reputation for giving youngsters opportunity.
The sharks have shunted Metcalf to reserves; Raider shaft Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad
back to reserves. Meanwhile we keep giving opportunity to Reece, Chanel Harris-Tavita
to develop their game.
We provide opportunity for Kosi
, Lussick and Berry
when there have been safer options. Hopefully 16-20 year old up and comers would take notice!
I hopefully we are going for the long term play and aiming for a reputation for opportunity amongst the best juniors in the game. These sort of ‘backing the development player’ calls may have helped sign the likes of Volkman over other clubs.
