Sooooo, how many games did these guys end up playing for the Broncos?Well do a comparison. Those things were never said about any of those guys, because they did time getting ready and were ready.
Cronk 61 ISC games
Smith 28 ISC games
Munster 46 ISC games
Ponga 44 NYC games
Slater 23 ISC games
All those guys took an average of 40 lower grade games to be NRL ready- some of the best players ever.
The Broncos have four halves that are ready after four games?
That's one hell of quick development over guys that have turned out pretty well.
What faith did we show in these guys?
Their trust that the Broncs would give them a go?
Answer - Sweet **** All
FTR - SOS if I’m not corrected has played a game you might have heard called the NRL
FWIW, these four talented halves would produce with one arm tied behind their backs more than what Kniko has produced playing in the NRL his entire halfback career.
