    At last another 3N rugby union nation to suffer poaching by the NRL.

    Welcome to the club.

    Yep, once the Roosters have his visa in order. I figured there was a good reason for NSWRU and Sydney Roosters to have adjacent HQ buildings.
    Tahs have a carrot of annual tips to SA to meet up with friends and family

    i was speaking to a saffa friend the other day who still has strong links to rugby in RSA, im not sure exactly how true what he was saying, but he said that the QRU and RugbyWA have been quite active in RSA attracting juniors to Australia.

    Whole families are moving over to Australia he seems to think.

    Ja have said it a few times via Ruaan Smith, they are quite active this side of the ditch but this kid is quite unique. He will play Craven Week for WP in a few weeks time and surprise the WP lot let him play. He'll play with Lanes boy in SA's premier schoolboy competition. Words have it there is more kids to follow him.

    Yes, but can the lad bend the elbow and trash the confines of an inner city establishment.
    The Roosters are a club with a (proud ???) tradition to uphold.

    What's that Nate ?
    No this is the hallway son, and Jake be a friend, take the bus home please.
    By the way has anyone seen Freddy ?

    Uggghhhh . I hope the money's good !

    Hey PB,
    It's a reference to the off-field trouble that NRL club the Sydney Roosters are in this week, one of their players (Nate Myles) was found in the middle of the night naked in his hotel corridor having taken a dump on their carpet.
    Freddy is the Roosters coach, a few months ago he was forced to fine himself $10,000 for wandering into some other hotel guests room blind drunk. a fine example for his players.
    They're also into "bending the elbow", which is code for getting your old fella out with 10 or so teammates and having a play with yourselves while one of your mates bangs a chick.
    A dubious environment to nurture this young saffa talent, as Brittany says, I hope the money's good !

    Since it's the Roosters and not the Sharks you're probably right.. they've more of a paraletic drinking culture than a circle-jerking culure in the eastern suburbs..

    I'm sure a fair bit of it will come down to the quality of the individual, it will depend on how easily swayed he is as to the kind of man he turns into. Regardless, he'll still be welcome at the Tahs.

    Moses, you forgot Roosters hooker Jake Friend punching a reporter's neice in the face at a nightclub. Or was that mentioned further up? Can't be bothered to check.

    Translation please PB.

    Saw Farrell play his first senior match for Saracens against the Western Force. He was on the bench with his dad. Was entertaining them warm up together. Looked like he had more than a fair share of talent.

    OK will try my best.

    JP had a dad crises because everybody thought he was Carel Doep, the prince of wings kid. He grow up in the Free State at Reitz Prymary (Doc Craven also root from there) and played flanker, his dad coach him (his dad was Carels team mate for the Gazelles in the isolation years) and is involved with the Golden Lions at the moment.

    The bolded part is that he will be a Aussie the next three years with the league lot and will study marketing.
