JACK RYAN is the shadow recruiting office, which recruits for the Queensland Reds.
Jack is a former player and current AFL player, with his first club, the Gold Coast, in the mid 2000s.
He has also played for the Western Bulldogs, the Western Coast Eagles and the Brisbane Lions.
Jack says recruiting is one of the hardest jobs in the game.
“There’s a lot of things that you need to do in the recruiting office that’s different to what you would normally do, especially at the footy level,” Jack said.
“It’s a great job but it’s also a big commitment, and it’s hard to get out of it.
If you go to the office in Brisbane you’ll probably meet people from all over the world, you’ll have some mates that live in Brisbane, you may get to meet people that play football in Brisbane.”
The recruitment office is in the corner of the city’s main shopping precinct, the Kings Park Shopping Centre.
There is also an office for AFL players, as well as staff who look after the AFL’s new recruit training program.
When it comes to recruiting players, the Reds are a very small side in the competition, but the Reds have been in the top eight in the league since 2011, having won two premierships and the 2011 grand final.
The Queensland Reds have the largest contingent of players in the AFL, with more than 40 players on the list, with most of the players coming from the Queensland City Football League, which has been in existence since the 1920s.
With the AFL in a state of upheaval, the Queensland football authorities have been looking to attract talent.
Rams coach Paul Green said recruiting for the Reds had been “the hardest job in the entire game” and that it had been a very tough year for the club.
“(Recruiting is) an incredible job,” Green said.
“You get to talk to players from around the country and around the world.
It’s just really challenging, a big job.
It’s the hardest job you’ll ever have.”
There’s no way around it, and the Reds know it.
They’ve got a lot to look forward to.
I think they’re really confident in the talent they’ve got, but I think they also know they have a huge responsibility.
“While there is a huge amount of talent in the state of Queensland, the recruitment office in Townsville has been a major focus for the region for a number of years, due to the huge amount in recruitment for the local football league.
Its recruitment office has been on the ground in the suburb since it opened in the late 1990s, and has grown from just 10 employees to over 40 now.
As well as recruiting players from across the state, the offices also have a number jobs that they do for local businesses, including marketing, merchandising and branding.
Recruited players are also often sent to training camps across the region, which can last up to three weeks.
According to Jack, recruiting is a lot harder than you might think, especially in Townsland.
He said it was tough to get into the office and he was disappointed to hear the comments that the staff made.
At first, he was a little disappointed that the comment was made, but he said that his first reaction was to tell them to relax, because it’s a tough job.”
It doesn’t take much of a stretch to see the comments made on the floor,” he said.”
I was pretty disappointed that they made those comments.
But you never know what they’ll say later in the day.
They’ve been there for a long time, they’ve seen how the club’s run and how many players have come through the door and the impact that they’ve had on the game in the region.
In Townsville, Jack says it’s tough to recruit players, especially when you’re looking at the AFL as a whole.
That’s why he is working to make sure the recruitment of players isn’t compromised.

And Jack says there is always someone looking to get them to play football at Townsville.
While Jack is the Shadow Recruitment Office, he is not the only one working on the recruitment front.
Former Brisbane Lions and Richmond players Ryan O’Hanlon and Matt Priddis are working on a new program to bring players to the Reds.
