The Ipswich Jets are under siege from media today after questions were raised about their new open grade backline.
Despite the Jets training behind closed doors, The Advocate can exclusively reveal that iconic Queensland Rugby League team has completely revamped it’s fullback, centre and wing stocks.
The new try-scoring operation has a distinctly African flavour with the back five positions now all occupied by Cameroonian nationals, who’s names have been kept from us.
The Jets have refused to publicly comment on the issue, but sources inside the organisation have confirmed that the coaches are over the moon with the recent recruitment drive.
The coaches of the Jets, Shane and Ben Walker, dubbed the most radical coaches in the country, are reportedly said to have recruited the Central African athletes with plans to slot them into their possession obsessed football team.
A club spokesman who was playing the pokies at the Goodna RSL told us that the Walker’s have already got the new backs firing.
“They already look to have surpassed players like Josh Reynolds and Alex Johnston in their ability to run sideways and backwards.”
“The Walker brothers seem to be rock hard at the opportunity to mould these blokes into their dream footy players,” the source said.
Our reporters asked whether the Jets were aware that Border Force may come looking for the new players, and were informed that it’s being taken care of.
“Yeah, the boys are getting the NRL to take some money out of the video leak slush fund and putting it towards getting these blokes visas, so fingers crossed!”
