In today's rugby paper we have been graded a 4 (weak) on our Academy set up.

With this been the worst score does anyone know how it is graded and what we are doing wrong as there seems to be alot of effort put in the academy set up

I'm not too worried to be honest as we have got one of the best blokes in rugby league where academies are concerned coming in. In bastian he will get the academy sorted out. If the rumours are true then theirs no wonder we got a 4 (weak).

What rumours?

 

As someone who doesn't get the opportunity to watch the reserves & academy sides, the main issue I can see would appear to be the player pathway: whilst we supposedly have or had some good young talents at the club, how many have actually stepped up to the 1st team? I'm not saying I would expect them all to, but perhaps more than actually have.

 

I'm sure it will continue to improve anyway, as that is something the BOD seem keen to develop.

I'm not going into detail gaz as its just rumours and no substance to it as far as i know. (More than likely cobblers). But I heard it had sumat to do with our last head coach.

Wasn't Lee Crookes brought in to do some work on the Academy and get the players into education but later was released from his duties ?
