Wigan Warriors have offered deals to eight members of their youth team who have all signed up.

Chris Taylor - stand off or centre, product of Wigan St Pats and Abraham Guest. A powerful tackler with creative abilities. Chris has been on the scholarship for three years, he has also represented England at U'16's recently against France.

Connor Farrell - younger brother of Liam, he is strong running back row forward with an excellent work ethic and attitude. A product of Wigan St Pats and St John Fisher School.

Dominic Manfredi - a tough uncompromising centre, a product of Leigh Miners ARLFC.

Dom Crosby - prop forward who has shown an excellent attitude after a successful trial, has figured in the Under 20's this season.

John O'Donnell - Back Row forward who has joined the Warriors from Wigan St Pats.

Tom Spencer - prop forward who has been with the Club for two years. Played for the GB Community Lions under 19's in a recent tour in South Africa.

Ryan Hilliard - scrum half with good creativity and an excellent kicking game. Has come from Pilkington Recs, another success of the Warriors trialling system.

Jaydon Sandford - full back who has figured in the Under 18's this season, a product of Wigan St Pats.

I believe Tom Spencer is also originally from St Pats.

Went to watch the U18's National Cup final at Blackpool a few weeks back, some cracking talent on display from both Ince Rose Bridge and Wigan St Pats.

I do hope he does well with his RL career

Give him shirt number 99, and play ice cream van music when he scores wink.gif

I'm willing to take the gamble, I don't mind it being unfair.
