We are looking for you to nominate your three best players and one player who you believe to have the most potential. Please remember that not all Schools or Clubs will have players of this standard, whereas others will have slightly larger numbers to nominate.
The more accurate you are with your nominations, the more accurate we can be with our talent identification.
