When being a member of the State team does not rely on the ability to pay, then maybe the most talented players will get selected.

Re: New Junior Structure 2014

I'm glad they've postponed it. IMO all players (juniors especially) benefit from playing against players of equal or slightly better ability, that's why we have a PL and SL, you derive very little benefit or pleasure from losing 10-0 or winning 10-0. So why would we force juniors to do anything dif...
