Flegg Sharks won 20-10 vs Roosters

Pele played. Jensen didn’t.

Veikoso was 18th man. First time he has been named this year.
William Swann played for the Roosters.

pele played? he made the 19 man squad and jensen didnt

Yep. About 50 minutes. Maybe he’s pencilled in as 18th man. Using a player who already got a game is a good idea.

Jensen is playing for the Jets.

Sikei, Stonestreet and Hosking from SG ball are all included in the 19 for Jersey Flegg this week.

Ieriko is playing for CC

No Dykes, Samrani, Wilson or Rivett named anywhere. Will keep an eye out for them.

Pele and Jenson named in the top 21 but will assume they end up in jets, both played great esp Pele last week against the bears.

Yep, Pele didn't look out of place. Needs to stay there. Flegg isn't going to develop him for first grade. Plus they'll likely call up Finau and some other forwards from SG Ball to Flegg so Pele can stay in NSW cup.

Yep - pretty much following what they did in 2019 with the best of the u20’s. They kept them down until the SG Ball season was done, moved them to the Jets and back-filled their spots with the best kids from SG Ball.

imho Lualua, Jensen and Pele shouldn’t play Flegg again unless the Jets have a bye. I’d like to see Iro up with the Jets more often than not too.

Bloody good effort, 17yos playing against 20 Yo's at Rep Level.

SG Ball is 19’s, so it’s 18/19yo’s playing against 19-21 year old’s. For the most part they are not pushing those guys into the lineup straight away. They push depth players into starting roles and promote the 19’s to depth roles.

E.g. in 2019 Trindall went up to the Jets, Ernst became the starting 7 and Broadhurst became part of the squad (he played a couple of games).

The two recent exceptions I know of for the Sharks are Jack Williams and Bronson Xerri, who both played a full year of 20’s at 17.

Cheers, yep know of only one 17 yo currently pushed up JF 21s, admittedly on the wing.

For the Thunderbolts?

Horses for courses I suppose. Tanah Boyd was playing Qld Cup at 17 an Sualli doesn’t look out of place this year, so I guess the old “if you are good enough you are old enough” adage applies.
