I cannot remember a season which has featured so many young players, i think it's been a real positive.

Bradford Bulls - 7

*Vinny Finnigan debuted at 20 but has since turned 21.

Cas Tigers - 8

Richard Owen, Joe Arundal, Jordan Thompson, Joe Westerman, Oliver Holmes, Jon Davies, Jonathon Walker & Adam Milner

Catalan - 3

David Guasch, William Barthou, Tony Gigot

Crusaders - n/a

Quins - 5

Jamie O'Callaghan, Olsi Krasniqi, Martyn Smith, Max Edwards & Ben Bolger.

Huddersfield Giants - 2

*Elliot Hodgson, Keal Carlisle & Josh Griffin all debuted last year aged 18/19

Hull FC - 5

I make that over 60 players, thats fairly encouraging and then there are plenty of National League clubs such as Widnes who have several youngsters in their lineups.

Great to see there is always a silver lining to those dark clouds of injury certain teams have suffered and been forced to bring in youngsters, rather than by choice. The more successful clubs this season have brought in a few but they were arguably ready for it. Thanks for compiling the info, it is great to see the younger lads getting a turn and makes you feel better about the future.

Bulls: Add Tom Olbison = 8

Telegraph & Argus report has Finnigan still down as 20? Says he has been doing his degree for last 2 years which suggests may be bit early for 21? Although I don't have DOB so if you do could you post on here EK? Ta.

Ah forgot about Olbison, thanks for that.

I think Finnigan's birthday is 4/8/89.

Gareth Owen can be added to the Salford list, played yesterday aged 17

If that's the case re Finnigan, you've bragging rights over all the "professionals" who have reported his signing a full-time contract this morning! :D

Paul Johnson made a bow for Saints also, (not the GB international) not sure of his age but it could possibly be another to put on the list!

...And Jamie Ellis last season
