i heard he was a lazy trainer BEFORE he went to AFL. i still believe he has better AFL skills than hunt. but hunt has a go. folau is lazy.

its a good example for young blokes looking to do well as a senior. folau has all the advantages over hunt; height, weight, speed, marking ability, talent, etc. hunt just tries harder. he pushes himself. he dedicates himself.

i thought hunt was too much of a meathead to become an AFL 'sophisticate'. he proved me wrong. i thought izzy might find a role that didnt include running too much, but obviously ive misjudged the game of AFL.

but i cant say im sorry that one of the PI experiments failed. AFL matches the australian demographic. NRL now has over 45% of pacific island kids in their under 20s comp. the NRL is flooded with big, talented PI men. i dont begrudge them their talent or opportunity. but NRL could turn it round a bit with less interchange...which they refuse to do.it will kill the game from the bottom up. juniors parents dont want their kids playing monsters.

but the change for interchange is something that is inevitable in AFL. the interchange will be slashed to make athletes run more. that will keep AFL 'australian'. and free of a small population of 'explosive' athletes. it will also keep the demographic picture of the australian population reflected in AFL. not the NRL.

that, is a winner. the AFL over the next 20 years are going to domminate QLD and NSW if the NRL dont address their image to parents. it looks, and is brutal. parents care for their kids. they dont want them monstered. the NRL is going the way of americas NFL. gridiron can get away with it. its americas game, but it has no competition. but NRL has a compeditor that the american game doesnt. australia has its own game that reflects its demographics more evenly. that game is AFL. AFL is going to slaughter the NRL in the next 20 years in QLD and NSW...

So let me get this straight.... Parra is going to have, Folau, Bird, Hayne, Hopoate and Mead inside of 2 seasons... We are going to finally get more than 12 points for a season!!

In saying that, Sandow should never have been picked to play for any NRL or NSW Cup. He wasn't even in the top 10 halves in the local comps.

Allegedly Shackleton and Reddy believed the reason they were not given a go under Kearney is because they weren't 'dark enough'.

Parra is certainly banking on genetics with regards to our junior ranks - we've got all the Hoppa's, Folau's and Marmin Barba.

I hope these blokes make the grade. But speaking of islander families they can piss of the Tonga bros.

Sandow's a perfect example of a player that would have reached good heights in an older era. He absolutely blitzed it in the Toyota cup, and was far more dominant in toyota cup than Reynolds was. Reynolds just had the more adaptable style to step up to the nrl, while sandow got lost and found out with the more structured nrl competition.
