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.

Yes, that is good news for Widnes and Leigh.

:rolleyes:

Now then, how many of your favourite Leeds players were actually from Leeds?

The majority are though our academy system.

Plus 3 GF's in a row to show for it.

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.

11 years of magnanimity, as Wigan let the little teams win for a change. ;)

Long time ago.

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

Ringpiece getting a bit twitchy is it?

Worried that your brains might spill out into your trolleys?

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