Thanks. Does anyone know Gulden's actual stats?

No surprises with the changes. Brewer was very lucky to play the games he did and Campbell was always going to get another game.

Having said that, personally I wouldn’t have played Campbell or Gulden in any of the games this year. That’s not a knock on their ability by any means. I know others will disagree but I just think that as 17s they will have their chance next year and there are plenty of 18s who are good enough and should have had an opportunity now, in what is their draft year.

Allies skills are poor. Nice piece from Gulden for a crumb and goal. Nippy and nice kick. Campbell working hard.

Unsure why so many Allies players showing little instinct, holding the ball too long,

About 10 Allies within 10m of the ball for no reason. Looked about like Auskick.

Yeah I don’t like dragging kids but our skills are shizen. (Although this is the first I’ve seen of the Allies so I’m judging purely off this game.)

Gulden looks the goods

Why are they called the Allies?
It’s just a made up name and covers the combined NSW, Qld, NT and Tassie team. The men’s version that played a few State of Origin games were called the same thing and the youth teams followed with that. I don’t think many people like it but until someone comes up with something better this is what we’ve got.

Because the allies coaches do not know how to teach them structure.

Wonder if Errol will get a crack in the Ressies.
I’m sure he will but, frankly, I’d prefer it if he didn’t. Nothing against him personally but there are a heap of U18s who are more than good enough and deserve a chance to play a few games in the Reserves.

He’s already on the Academy red carpet and, consequently, he gets and will continue to get every benefit that the Academy can throw at him. Let others who are good enough and in their draft year get some games.

Fair enough.
