....over the years. I would say that we have had a strong leaning towards the Rhinos.

...and signed from us? I'd say Huddersfield tend to like our players.

Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

We traditionally grow our own and feed the rest of rugby league. :D

Apparently Cas are our feeder team and Rovers are our retirement team.

Traditionally, we produced our own.  These days we seem to use Batley and Dewsbury as feeder teams :ph34r:

 

We are starting to see the fruits of our academy set up coming through, long may that continue.

When I was a boy in the 50s early 60s Leeds used to let a few  players sign for Batley and Bramley

Trinity have a feeder club in the semi-feral village of Featherstone, where we pick up players cheapish and listen to their fans moan about it for twenty years after the players have retired.  We tend to get a few released from Leeds, missed by Cas (Elima, Ellis), and pretty much from anywhere else.

 

In truth, whoever a club is pally with agent-wise pretty much dictates where players come from these days.
