    导出博客文章The NRL clubs have been waving the chequebooks around in the silly season but
    the next big thing may be right under their noses. Mark Ashton explores the most
    likely superstars from all 16 clubs.Brisbane Broncos - Jai ArrowJai Arrow had a
    taste of NRL in 2016 and has been earmarked as the?heir apparent to the retired
    Broncos legend Corey Parker.This expectation comes with a great deal of pressure
    but many good judges, including coach Wayne Bennett, believe the 21-year old
    former Junior Kangaroo has a huge future in front of him.Canterbury-Bankstown
    Bulldogs - Brad AbbeyWhen the Bulldogs lured Brad Abbey from the Warriors at the
    end of 2015 it was seen as a major coup and the electrifying fullback could show
    why in 2017.The young Kiwi could be the big winner from Will Hopoates no-play on
    Sunday decision due to his religious beliefs and once he gets his chance there
    may be no looking back.Canberra Raiders - Kato OttioThe 2016 season was Kato
    Ottios first at Canberra after moving from his native Papua New Guinea and he
    couldnt have made a better impression. Blessed with a devastating combination of
    size and speed, Ottio racked up 29 tries in 23 games for the Raiders feeder club
    Mounties.His season was interrupted by an ACL injury sustained late in the
    season but an NRL debut wont be far away once he returns to the field in
    2017.Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks -?Jayden BraileyMichael Ennis is the only player
    from the Sharks Grand Final-winning team that wont be at the club in 2017 but
    Jayden Brailey represents a ready-made replacement.The local junior represented
    the Australian Schoolboys in 2014, was named in the 2015 NYC Team of the Year
    and could make the No.9 jumper his own for a long time,?Gold Coast Titans -?Greg
    LeleisiuaoGreg Leleisiuao is an explosive runner of the ball - so much so that
    he was compared to Greg Inglis in 2015 when just 18-years-old. The Auckland-born
    speedster is yet to make his NRL debut but gave a clear insight into his
    potential with a number of impressive performances in the 2016 Auckland Nines.As
    a former hip hop dancer,?Leleisiuao is clearly quick on his feet and with the
    Titans losing a number of outside backs such as Nene Macdonald, David Mead,?Josh
    Hoffman and Brian Kelly, 2017 may present him with a golden opportunity to
    establish his NRL career.Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles - Peter SchusterPeter
    Schuster was lured from Australias Rugby Sevens to Manly in 2016 - a major coup
    for the Sea Eagles. Australian-born but with a strong Samoan heritage, Schuster
    is the latest in a rich bloodline of talent that includes his uncle John
    Schuster - a dual international with 10 caps for the All Blacks, three for Samoa
    and two rugby league Tests for Western Samoa.Schuster was discovered by Manly
    great and former Aussie Sevens coach Michael OConnor in 2013 before going on to
    represent the Australian under-19s and Samoa under-20s. He boasts natural flare,
    explosive speed and can play fullback, wing and centre.Melbourne Storm - Curtis
    ScottCurtis Scott is a former bricklayer now building a career in rugby league
    and his glittering resume suggests he has already established a solid foundation
    in which to do so. Born and bred in Sydneys Sutherland shire, Scott made the
    bold move to leave his junior club in 2016 to further his career under the
    guidance of Craig Bellamy at the Storm.The 19-years-old is comfortable at both
    centre and wing and has already impressed many good judges with fine
    performances for the New South Wales and Australian Schoolboys under-18s teams.
    Scott made two NRL appearances at the start of 2016 before his season was cut
    short with a broken leg in Round 4 - ironically against his former club the
    Sharks.But it would seem a matter of when not if we see him back in the top
    grade and with lingering doubts over Billy Slaters future, he may just become a
    household name in 2017.Newcastle Knights - Ken TofilauKen Tofilau still
    qualified for the Knights NYC side in 2016 but spent most of the season getting
    accustomed to the faster pace of reserve grade. The highly rated Kiwi was the
    named the Knights NYC Player of the Year in 2015, and was equally impressive
    when promoted to NSW Cup where he played a leading role in Newcastles grand
    final win and State Championship match.Blessed with blistering speed and
    mesmerising footwork, Tofilau has represented NZ Residents 16s, NZ Residents 17s
    and New Zealand U18s and Newcastle great and rugby league immortal Andrew Johns
    is one of his biggest fans so a taste of NRL football in 2017 wouldnt come as a
    shock.?New Zealand Warriors -?Mafoaaeata HinganoAta Hingano grew up playing with
    Brad Abbey, the Bulldogs rookie identified earlier, and has already compiled a
    strong resume that includes representing the Kiwis under-16s in 2012, under-18s
    in 2014, the Warriors NYC Grand Final winners in 2015 as well as being named the
    NRL clubs Rookie of the Year in 2016.Hingano made two NRL appearances 2016 and
    while there are sure to be many more to come, however, they may not necessarily
    be at the Warriors. The 19-years-old is a huge talent but with Shaun Johnson at
    seven, the arrival of Kieran Foran to play five-eighth and Issac Luke at hooker,
    his opportunities may be limited at the Warriors and there is speculation that
    his head has been turned by interest from a rival club.North Queensland Cowboys
    - Gideon Gela-MosbyGideon Gela-Mosby is blessed with lightning quick speed and
    covers 100 metres in near-Olympic time of 10.24 seconds - an attribute that
    helped him set a new tryscoring record of 39 tries in 22 games in the under-20s
    competition in 2015.Hes been a regular junior representative player with
    selection for Queensland under-16s and under-18s, Queensland Schoolboys and the
    Australian Schoolboys teams. He quickly grabbed the attention of NRL fans with
    two tries in nine minutes on debut at the 2016 Auckland Nines and similar
    performances for the Cowboys in the regular competition are surely not far
    away.Parramatta Eels -?Marata NiukoreMarata Niukore joined Parramatta from the
    Warriors at the end of 2016 and the promising youngster threatens to be yet
    another young star that managed to slip away from the Kiwi club.?Standing at 188
    cms and weighing in at 102 kgs, the 21-year-old is comfortable playing in the
    centres or the back-row and after a strong apprenticeship in the Warriors
    highly-rated NYC team and two years with the Junior Kiwis, he is now considered
    a strong contender to push for an NRL debut in 2017.Penrith Panthers - Oliver
    ClarkPenrith is famous for its rugby league nursery and local junior Oliver
    Clark looms as the next promising star off the production line.At 20-years-old,
    the 2014 Australian Schoolboys prop stands at a towering 190cms and weighs in at
    106kgs and was also a leading figure in the Panthers NYC side which won the 2015
    Holden Cup Premiership.South Sydney Rabbitohs -?Tyrell FuimaonoTyrell Fuimaono
    was one of Parramattas most promising forwards after a breakout season in the
    NYC in 2016 but South Sydney snuck under the Eels guard to lure him to
    Redfern.The 20-year-old will give the Rabbitohs some versatility with his size
    and speed enabling him to play as an edge backrower or in the centres. The
    Bunnies have parted company with a number of outside backs including Joe
    Burgess, Kirisome Auvaa and Michael Oldfield so the former Junior Kangaroo and
    Australian Schoolboy might just get a chance to make his NRL debut in 2017.St.
    George Illawarra Dragons -?Luciano LeiluaHe made just four NRL appearances in
    2016 but Luciano Leilua is possibly the hottest young commodity in the game. He
    represented the Australian Schoolboys and NSW under-18s in 2014 but his
    late-season NRL cameo has several rival clubs lining up for his signature.At
    just 20-years-old, Leilua is already a monsterous 186 cms and 112 kgs and the
    young backrower has the potential to establish himself as one of the Dragons
    most destructive forwards.Sydney Roosters - Liam KnightLiam Knight is a player
    with huge potential but he does come with some baggage. A serious off-field
    indiscretion has over-shadowed his on-field performances to date and while he
    represents a risk for the Roosters, he is definitely a risk worth taking.Knight
    is long-striding forward who can play lock, second row and front row - he is
    blessed with an off-load, a good turn of speed for a big man and is bruising in
    defence. The Alice Springs-born Knight turns 22 in 2017 and after making his NRL
    debut with Manly in 2016, it wouldnt come as a major surprise to see him cement
    a regular place in the Roosters forward pack over the next 12 months.?Wests
    Tigers -?Jacob LiddleThe Tigers have a number of promising young cubs in their
    ranks - forwards JJ Felise and Esan Marsters will all push for promotion but
    with Robbie Farah moving on, it would appear that the best opportunity may well
    fall for hooker Jacob Liddle.The 20-year-old is gifted with his great speed and
    vision and after having a taste of NRL against the Bulldogs in 2016, the 2014
    Australian Schoolboy could establish himself as a regular member of the NRL
    team. Wholesale Phillies

    after witnessing an emotional senior day that Canadian Andrew Wiggins was
    considering Kansas, even if the Jayhawks coach was in the dark like everyone
    else while the superstar recruit made certain of his future. For one thing,
    Wiggins saw on that visit in March just how beloved players are at Kansas, where
    icons such as James Naismith and Phog Allen have become deified. The
    six-foot-eight Vaughan, Ont., native also saw just how many players were
    departing. Four senior starters delivered farewell addresses that night. A few
    weeks later, star freshman Ben McLemore announced he would be declaring for the
    NBA draft, leaving the nine-time defending Big 12 champions looking for a bunch
    of guys to plug into the lineup next season. Undoubtedly, Wiggins saw in Kansas
    a place where he could shine. "I just felt like that was the place for me," the
    consensus No. 1-ranked recruit said after announcing his college intentions
    Tuesday in Huntington, W.Va. "Going to college will get me better mentally and
    physically in the game of basketball." Wiggins chose the Jayhawks over overtures
    from Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State, where both of his parents
    attended and one of his teammates will be playing next season. "I felt like
    there was a connection," Self said, "but basically, he picked a good night to
    visit. He visited on senior day and kind of saw what this was all about, a game
    that wasnt a huge high-intensity game, but a game he was able to see how players
    are beloved here." Widely considered the next LeBron James -- though Self
    compared him more closely to Tracy McGrady -- Wiggins initially was part of the
    2014 class, but was immediately raised to the top of this years recruiting
    market when he decided to reclassify. Wiggins averaged more than 23 points and
    11 rebounds while leading Huntington Prep School in West Virginia to a 30-3
    record last season. He also dazzled scouts, most of which knew they had no
    chance of landing him, at the McDonalds All-American Game and Jordan Brand
    Classic. The entire recruitment of Wiggins was unlike anything college
    basketball has seen. Sure, hes the kind of transcendent talent that in bygone
    days could have jumped straight to the NBA, and that alone makes him unique. But
    by nature, hes a soft-spoken kid who cares little for the spotlight. So while
    other top recruits string along the public before making their college decision,
    Wiggins kept his thoughts largely to himself throughout the process. Self said
    he texted Wiggins on Tuesday morning to wish him luck, and received a text back
    from the small forward saying, "Thank you." But besides that, Self had barely
    spoken with Wiggins in the final tense days of his recruitment.dddddddddddd
    Wiggins revealed his choice at a small ceremony at his prep school. Self didnt
    even know hed won the recruiting derby until he received a phone call from a
    reporter. "There wasnt jubilation like youd think," Self said. "It was kind of a
    surreal feeling. I was so happy, but at the same time, it was almost a humble
    happiness, and so proud we were able to land Andrew to go with whats already a
    terrific recruiting class." Along with losing McLemore, whos expected to be an
    NBA lottery pick, the Jayhawks are also losing star centre Jeff Withey, forward
    Kevin Young and veteran guards Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford, who have
    never known anything but winning conference championships. Kansas has a few
    reserves returning, including junior guard Naadir Tharpe and sophomore forward
    Perry Ellis, a five-star prospect that finally caught on late last season. But
    the Jayhawks will be dominated by newcomers as they chase their 10th straight
    Big 12 championship next year. Wiggins is the headliner, but 6-5 Wayne Seldon
    from Tilton (N.H.) School is the second-rated shooting guard in the country.
    Seven-footer Joel Embiid from The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla., is the
    third-rated centre. Guards Connor Frankamp from Wichita, Kan., and Brannen
    Greene from Tifton, Ga., are in the top 10 at their positions, and point guard
    Frank Mason from Massanutten Military Academy in Woodstock, Va., has steadily
    climbed into the nations top 100 recruits. "If anything," Self said, "it gets me
    excited to go to work." Wiggins said the most difficult part of his decision was
    informing the three other finalists that hed be going elsewhere. As for why he
    chose Kansas, well, hes keeping most of those reasons private, though he did say
    having his older brother Nick Wiggins at Wichita State was nice. His father,
    former NBA player Mitchell Wiggins, said fit was also a big part of it. "He
    liked their system. A lot of pro offence, the pick and roll," the elder Wiggins
    said. "The system is probably the biggest thing, and Coach Self is a pretty good
    coach." Self is the first to admit he wouldnt be nearly as successful if it
    wasnt for his players -- thats where it all starts, of course. But in luring
    Wiggins to Kansas, even Self acknowledged hes never coached another player like
    him. "He doesnt really fit the mould of some of the guys weve had in the past,"
    Self said. "Hes a tremendous talent and a terrific kid. Probably an even better
    kid than he is a talent. We think he has a chance to be about as good a prospect
    as weve ever had." Cheap
