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.
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.
