I was at the open trials . . it wasnt a great standard.
Good in bursts.
just kept putting his hand for further minutes/games to make up numbers like many keen boys do.
Good on him.
But if he makes the final squad . .. "i'll eat my hat" lol.
But if your looking at half/utilities here are some 18/19 year old playing for the top fox clubs .. who have genuine ability
Just a few blokes who would have been much better.
Charles Gabriel - Mt Albert - clever half back / former development player
Pariti Matiu - Bay Roskill - clever hooker/half - bays player of the year
dion stevens - Papakura - Fullback/halve - super quick/mean footwork
Never mind youngsters going around and other around the country.
Verney the kid from Taranaki Prems rep team is a decent half too.
It is good to see halves getting opportunities at other clubs if not wanted by Warriors. I see Regan Verney is with the bulldogs NYC and think it his younger brother Jared with the Bulldogs SG Ball. Kauri Apouri from wellington was named in the roosters SG ball and Carlos Hotene may feature with Sharks NYC
