    I think you're right. He probably will get bigger, he has such a naturally large looking frame. However, diminishing returns eventually set in and being too big can start to become a problem/hindrance. I am also sure there will be many of the lesser known forwards putting in a lot of effort in the off-season so size will become less of a deciding factor. I am really hoping that the lad does well into colts but I do not think his future is as a prop.

    This may sound stupid but anyone think he would be any good @ playing 8?

    He played at 6 his whole career up until this year so he will probably make his move back to that position

    excuse me champ but if you going to make up your own facts to back up your so called 'judgement' of these players, let's all remind ourselves who won the GPS premierships and those 15 boys that achieved it.

    Speaking of big units, anyone from New know the size of Tyrone Taukomo and what position he plays? I've heard he's only 13 but tipping the scales close to over 90kg on top of which he seems to have some speed.

    He won the GPS 100m, so yes has some speed.

    Having seen him next to some boys I know are about 75kg, I'd guess he's around 100, sounds crazy for a 13 year old but he's tall and he's very heavily built. Anyway, he's too heavy for 13's. And Bradley's not far behind him. The rumour on the sidelines was that Tyrone was hitting the weight limit for 14's and was about to be forced up to playing 15's, though I'm not sure what the weight restrictions are, if they exist.

    There are no weight restrictions. And whilst he is enormous now he will struggle as he gets older as he developed nearly to his full potential in primary school. He is too used to running over the top of people and now that everyone is catching up to him he really is finding it difficult

    Nicely lowering the tone there DM. No good ones @ Stanmore? :)

    Totally agree Sydneybra. I noticed the same thing as well, he wasn't anywhere near as dominant this season now that the other boys skills, speed and size are catching up.

    Looks like Jason Reilly is also a successful rugby master. Canberra Grammar won the ACT U18 Premiership this year and the 2nd time in 70 years!

    Came from 6 to front row, so speed is the dominant factor, which therein effects workrate on the ground etc. So whilst your question may sound stupid to you, believe me its not. I think Tim Rapp had to do something this year. It paid off. As man others have said Prior is a good schoolboy player, the mark of him is will it translate to seniors?

    Are you saying there's 13 year olds that are 75kg as well as manboys like Tyrone and Bradley? It wasn't that long ago that kids wouldn't hit this size until 15 or 16 (ie 75kgs). Perhaps they should bring in weight restrictions like they do in the suburban comps. I was a winger weighing in 55kgs/181cm when I was in that age group. Even the forwards in my age group then were no bigger than 70kgs or 75kgs maximum. Hate to be playing in this age group now.

    75kg's is seen as lightweight in U15's competition IMO, as a forward

    No I was referring to under 13s (ie year 7/8).

    Tyrone plays up in the 14's.

    Plenty of boys in that age group are 5'8" to 5'10" and I'd guess one or two in most teams are nearing 6 foot. And yes in the A's and B's 75kgs wouldn't be unusual for the taller boys.

    Not that amazing. last year the two Randwick U14's 2nd rowers were 6'2 or 3 and both in excess of 90kg's
