Jamahl Lolesi: Let's finish the year in style

Junior development is the key behind success and if you ask any successful coach he will tell you that youth and experience is the way to get there fastest.
In the coming years, with the youth system the Giants have set-up, we are set to reap the rewards, with some real exciting rookies coming through in the Under 16s and Under 18s.
I have personally worked with the Giants Academy Under 15s, and what a great bunch they are! They’re a really talented group of young men who are so dedicated and hungry to make it.
I also saw first-hand the Under 16s and was really taken aback by the skill, size and pace of the these kids, and I hear very good reports of their current trip to Australia.
Watch this space for these young kids who could be up training with the first team in no time at all.
IT was exciting to hear the news we have signed Test lock and State of Origin player Luke O’Donnell from North Queensland Cowboys.
This time last year I was writing about the major coup in nabbing Dave Fa’alogo, and the club just keeps getting bigger by signing big players every year and we are now regularly linked with big-name stars of the Australian NRL.
This guy is a beast and the thought of him running around the field with Dave Fa’alogo frightens me to death – and I’ll be on the same side as them!
I can certainly imagine them working as a team of tigers hunting their prey. Look out 2011!
