With the Blues struggling to make any impact on the Blues’ premiership, it was a chance to make the big move.
The Blues made the move and it paid off as they went on to win the Grand Final with a record of 36-7.
The young, promising Blues have been linked with a move to Louis Vuifors, the luxury goods company behind the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuits, Gucci and the famous ‘V’ logo.
The Blues have made the switch to Louis and it has not gone unnoticed.
Key points:David Gallop said it was good to be at the Blues to be able to play at the same level as the Blues.
“I think we’ve got a lot of young players who’ve done really well for us and who are really keen to continue their development,” Gallop told News Corp Australia.
“So the key is getting that next level of performance, which we haven’t got that yet.”
The Blues were keen to bring in young players, particularly the Blues stars and Gallop was confident the players would make the right choice.
“We’ve got some very young players in the team that are going to take the next step in their careers,” Gallopp said.
“They’re going to play some really good footy, they’re going the right way, they’ve got all the qualities that are required for success.”
The young Blues are ready to prove their worth at the next level.
“The kids have a lot to prove to us, it’ll be interesting to see where they’re at at the end of the year and the season,” Gallops said.
The team is also in a position to showcase some of the younger players, and the Blues hope that will help them develop as players.
“It’s great to be here, it gives us a chance of seeing what these young players are about and how they can grow and become even better players,” Gallopers said.
Injuries to the Blues had a major impact on their premiership campaign, but they bounced back and are now the favourites for a finals spot.
David Gallops, Luke Williams and Jack Viney have all been fit to play for the Blues this season.
