So much for that old chestnut that Wigan are only interested in signing over the hill antipodans...

Good news mate.

Hopefully sometime soon the RFL will come down hard on clubs like Hull KR for their approach of trying to shoehorn as many pseudo-brits into their side as possible.

When my own club get to SL, hopefully our awesome u16 and u18 sides will provide us with a nice backbone too. Both are in the upper echelons of leagues where it is us against the SL clubs youth setups.

Yet another result against the best SL has to offer this weekend. Widnes 27 Saints 26 in the u18 academy. Widnes are killing it at youth level just now.

9 born in the fair city of leeds, lee smith, ryan hall, danny mguire, jamie peacock, ryan bailey, carl ablett, paul mcshane, clarkson and jamie jones buchanan. I'd challenge any club to beat that this season. Winning three in a row with lads born in your own city makes it so much sweeter.

Ah yes, someone from Leeds would know all about long times between winning trophies, it being their speciality for over 100 years.

great news from wigan, yet more quality players to come through and then move to widnes wink.gif wink.gif seriously though i can only applaud any club which brings through their own junior players.
