Well done Nic. Quality player.

That second tester will be before the Raiders v Cronulla game. Shapes as a fantastic afternoon of footy.

Very lucky to have been in this team. Dean Blore outplayed Nick in this tournament.

In all seriousness Cotric has been a mainstay of the Raiders under 20s all season. Not many schoolboys would have been picked in NYC round 1.

Clearly the one year less high schooling in Qld has a big effect on this team.

That's very unfair. AXL22 knows his stuff.

Though I don't think selection should depend on one tournament. It's obvious Cotric is a major talent.

TBF Blore was selected in the team just not in the starting line-up.

Correct.

Will remember next time to be a less critical and commend Nick on his selection rather then upset anyone.

Prefer to see him at centre though, and Blore at fullback.

Id rather you just tell it how you see it ALX. I've not got the faintest idea of any of these guys save for Cotric and given you do, id rather know how he really stacks up against his peers rather than you sugar coat your thoughts in fear of upsetting anyone

Congrats Nick - IMO if there's currently one player from our lower grades that can really make it in FG it's him.

Thanks heaps for your comments on the team. Much appreciated.
Obviously you know the players well and equally obviously we do not. Perhaps you could do a small article outlining the strengths etc of each player and where you think they are likely to end up?

Don't think it has to be the exact name to be part of a joke.

As others have said mate, I was just having a joke. For what it is worth I think Nick is better at centre too. One of his great strengths is his big body which is more valuable at centre. Mind you up until a few weeks ago I would have said that about our first grade full back but he is fast making the position his own.

Cotric a real natural rugby league player. Making a big impression in U20's despite being one of the younger squad members. Has at least another 2 years eligibility for that comp.
