The players and coaching staff are looking for answers, however what we also must produce is action on the field. I know the players are working hard and they just need some consistency in
their performances to turn the corner. ★ ★ ★ ★ CONGRATULATIONS go out to outstanding Colt Richie Skelton, who has been selected for the Queensland under 18 side to play in the main curtain-raiser to Origin II.
