Tepai v Chricton
Junior stars. One has kicked on, the other has stagnated.
We just can't seem to retain the blokes who can play first grade vs the guys who have the potential to play first grade.
Consistently so for the past 20+ years...
BA happened to Tepai. If he were at a club like the Roosters he would be killing it. At Parra under BA he is a robot with a faulty circuit board.
Imagine if Tep, Manu , Edwards , terepo and and few others had a a coach like Bellamy or Smith ? Coaches who know how to bring up youngsters and be able to help and improve them ? They would be different players but they had a bush coach guiding them .
Yeah Smith .
Other than Bennett has anyone else bred more rep players than Brian Smith since the NRL comp started ? Maybe Bellamy ? SRS question . Tim Sheens maybe ? Although Sheens bought most of his stars and it was before the NRL started if I’m correct .
