Stop putting words in my mouth. Wanna be boxing expert. Fail. Wanna be league expert. Fail again.

Broncos sign up any promising junior. They didnt see anything in Smith cause he never made any rep teams. If they offered Smith a contract he would have signed it. So he was not wanted by the Broncos.

3 nuffies as Teke likes to put it winning the premiership 3 times in 6 years. Suck it up princess.

lol@south$ 40 year old virgins.




How do you know if he'd have signed a contract or not??

You have no idea about any rep teams he made or didnt make, he was playing SOO at 20

Because he said so? That Broncos were not interested in him and didnt offer him a contract unlike many others.

He made the Area Rep teams, being Innisfail who played agains the other Far North teams ie Cairns, Mt Isa, Townsville etc. So he did play rep footy. He then played with Smith as Schoolboys in rep. Played together since they were 14-15 I believe.

Mate you are such a johnny-come-lately pseudo footy fan, it's blatantly obvious with the way you keep going "I didn't know about..." all the stuff about the Storm that everyone else here keeps filling you in on

you dont get it do you??

there wasnt a national Rugby League back then, plenty of Bush players stayed in the bush or stayed in QLD, there wasnt much money for players in Sydney & some large country towns payed about as much as Sydney if they had some decent industry & decent sponsorship

The only way Bush players would play for Australia was if they had blinders against visiting overseas teams or played well in City VS Country or QLD vs NSW ( which wasnt state of origin back then)

A player like Slaters old man ( whom i've never seen or heard of) would have been near invisible playing up there, there werent really as many opportunities to compare players in massive areas like QLD, players had to work real jobs through the week etc so they had few precious oportunities to travel to play against other areas / districts/ cities/ states etc


So there ya go kid, i taught you something for nothing

They played together for Norths Devils.

Cronk attended St. Laurence's College, South Brisbane from 19942001, where he represented the Schools the 1st XV rugby union side for number of years.[citation needed]
In 2001, he was selected to play in the Queensland and Australian Schoolboys teams.

As a youth Smith was hooker for the Logan Brothers Junior Rugby League Club, Logan City, Queensland. There he attended Marsden State High School.[1] After scoring 188 points for the Norths Devils in the Queensland Cup[2] he moved up to the NRL with the Melbourne Storm club.

Slater began playing rugby league for the Brothers club in Innisfail, Queensland at only four years old.He attended upper coomera state college, A North Queensland Cowboys fan growing up, he continued to make the Innisfail representative side every season until his final year with the club.

The only who made rep teams was Cronk. You cannot really call playing for innisfail a representative honour.

Yeah playing for Innisfail is a great honour where all agents come looking for your signature after the game.

Well even to this day, scouting in regional QLD is very limited.

Thats besides the point I was making. The Storm made these players. They didnt come to us as world class players. This is the result of 10 years of hard work. Not simply an open cheque book.

How many world class players have souths developed from schoolboys?
Lets see:

Inglis: bought from Melbourne
Crocker: bought from Melbourne
Burgess bros: bought from UK
Asotasi: bought from Bulldogs
King: bought from Melb via UK
Taylor: bought from Brisbane

Adam Reynolds and Isaac Luke are probably the only homegrown stars.

The last time melbourne bought an experieced star was Crocker and that was after he couldnt get a contract elsewhere due to his bad boy image.

4 time premiers baby. lol@south$. 40 year old virgins.

No cause it wasnt 14 nuffies in 06-09

It was 11 internationals and the rest Rep players but of course you would know that being a league fan and all

No it was because of the open cheque book.

You ever wondered why there has been no back to back premierships in the NRL? I dont think you have.

you're as dumb as dogshit

the more appropriate question would be how many juniors are in the storm team??? i think they finally have one in the 17

Now how many local juniors do Souths have?? & i'll give you a hint, Issac luke isnt one you deadshit

How many internationals have souths graded over the years?? i'd be here all day you stupid prick

But thats pretty standard for the storm, they've raped & pillaged all of QLD & NSW with news limited money in a open cheque book, using a now disgraced recruitment officer to lure them to bleak city
