So I'm looking through information to complete the datasets on the main page for previous players, and I thought this seemed very much thread worthy, given Pay.

Let me use the example of the 2014 SG Ball Season.. and in particular a game between Dogs and Roosters (which we lost 30-6).

Bulldogs side: 0 currently in NRL (Okunbor the only player still technically in NRL).
Roosters side: 6 currently in NRL - Paul Momirovski, Joseph Manu, Jack Murchie, Connor Watson, Poasa Faamausili (including Angus Crichton was out that game).

Roosters Coach: Trent Robinson at the time. 6 years on and 3 of those players are at the Roosters still.

They identify, and pay, to get the best juniors as well as bring them on.

Dont feel that confident that we nurture talent.

Sure Des has some part to play in this, yet so does past and equally the current board hold responsibility for this abysmal statistic.
So much for building up our juniors.
Maybe they meant junior cheerleaders?
