  • DT's Rookie Players to watch - Anyone know anything about the prop, Thomas Mikaele?

    SYDNEY ROOSTERS

    Egan Butcher

    Position: Five-eighth/backrow

    Age: 18

    Coach Trent Robinson has added Butcher to his top 30 squad this year but at only 18 it’s unlikely he’ll rush his development into the NRL. The five-eighth turned forward, who is one of hottest teenage prospects, is already physically bigger than his older brother and teammate Nat.

    Thomas Mikaele

    Position: Prop

    Age: 20

    The Keebra Park product stands at 194cm and at 20 years old is still going into his massive frame. He has been promoted into the top 30 roster from the development squad this year edging him a step closer to his first grade debut. Mikaele was named in the Under 20s Emerging Maroons side this year but missed the game through injury.

    Thomas Mikaele plays for the Tigers. It's a typo.

      I'd like to state that's probably the reason, I've not heard of him! Lol

        Whats the name of that giant 18yo Kiwi the Roosters signed earlier this year?
        There was a photo taken of him with Latrell when the Roosters were over in NZ.

        So while most of us were getting excited about the start of the season our resident Junkie Jim the Jailbird, the guy who would like to break into your house and steal your tv and toaster, Mickey Lane is at it again. Here is his latest beauty.

        I tell you guys this is one sick son of a bitch;

                  Thanks. I couldn't find that article, but I see that he is part of the 2019 Jersey Flegg summer squad. It would seem that he is a special talent.

                    just a small part of a bigger article
                    CHOOK SNAFFLE


                    THE Sydney Roosters have won the race for one of the most talented junior players going around.

                    New Zealand schoolboy Christian Tuipulotu is the hottest young property in football after he was headhunted by a host of NRL and Super Rugby teams.

                    The centre/winger was part of the Warriors’ system, having captained the New Zealand under-16s last season.

                        Thanks. I don't know if it's the camera angle, but he looks bigger than Collins now at 17. And he's a centre?
