I am just saying if you're going to talk development you/we/people need to know they lived in Victoria until they were 15 and then moved up here. It's pretty important detail in a development discussion.
Sure, except almost none of those in the list lived in Victoria until they were 15. Exaggerating context is not really a good way to go about a robust discussion is it.
So to provide context:
Jason Akermanis - Lived in Victoria until 9
Aliir Aliir - Lived in Africa until 8
Harris Andrews - Lived in Victoria until the ripe old age of 4
Marcus Ashcroft - Lived in Victoria to that career defining age of 3
Dayne Beams - Lived in Victoria until going grey at the age of 4
Charlie Cameron - Born and Bred in Queensland, moved to WA at the retirement age of 17
Charlie Dixon - Born and raised in Queensland
Jason Dunstall - Born and raised in Queensland
Eric Hipwood - Born in Victoria and moved to Queensland at the already developed age of 3
Mal Michael - Born and bred in PNG, that good ol' AFL heartland, a country in which incidentally is the only one in the world with rugby league as its national sport - moved to Queensland at 15 (so you got this one mate, well done)
Nick Reiwoldt - Lived in Tasmania until 9
Kurt Tippett - Born in the AFL heartland of Sydney and moved to Queensland at the almost dementian age of 2 months old
Michael Voss - Lived in Victoria until 11
Lachie Weller - Born in Tasmania and moved to Queensland at 15 (another one you got, well done to you!)
Dayne Zorko - Born and bred Queenslander
So three players post the age of 11. Enough context for you? How about you provide a list of Victorian rugby league players with the same context.
