Great. Thanks. Keep up the good work.

I think it even mentions the 'big unit' from New Zealand that Nahla was talking about.

Luckily I get to see all the U/20s home games.
As I have had dealings with most of these players at junior level, its a real bonus.
Good luck to Payney and his new assistant BJ for the 2017 season.

Mate, know little of Pere. He's not from NQ (Gold Coast, from memory).
Must be OK is he's in QAS squad. He'll no doubt be one of the big boys starting for U/20s this season.

Didn't know where else to put this but Cowboys-contracted Kiwis Caius Faatili (St Thomas of Canterbury College, Hornby Panthers) and Griffin Neame (Greymouth High School, Suburbs) have been selected in the NZRL U16 National High Performance Camp. Former Cowboy David Faiumu is involved with the four day camp, which started today. On the final day the squad will split into two teams and play a trial to select the 16s side.

Mate, I think you've posted again in the right spot.
I love your updates.
As mentioned earlier, I am fortunate to see all the NYC games and love watching these young boys come through and move onto Q-Cup and NRL.
Great to hear that David 'can throw a dummy' Faiumu is involved as well.

Cheers Rudi. Would love to be able to catch some games. The boys will be playing down this way at Cudgen next week, so I'll get to check them out.

The U16 NZRL trial is being streamed here (https://www.youtube.com/c/NZKiwis1/live) if anyone's interested.

Congrats to our NYC boys Logan Bayliss and Sean Mullany who were selected in the Queensland Schoolboys side to compete at the National Championships/Aus Schoolboys trials at St Marys in July. Tom Gilbert and Garrett Smith are two other Cowboys contracted players in the squad.

A late update on this: Caius and Griffin were both selected in the U16 Merit team. Caius was also given the Integrity Award.
