  2. Good signing, well done Huddersfield.
  3. Not sure how to feel, really happy with Leeming but dont really want to lose Trout. If it was the only way to get the deal done, then its probably a good deal for both clubs. We get an exciting young 9 with loads of natural ability, who strengthens our first 17 straight away and dosnt use any quota places. Giants get a big, young England academy second row to add to there impressive group of young players, for a player who wanted out. Think they got some cash aswel.
  4. Its not how quickly he got the oppurtunity, its what he done with those oppurtunities, Walkers played well in the biggest club games possible when he was Welsbys age and gone on to play well regularly at superleague level, playing in a poor team. So far, Welsbys an academy star with a few first team games in a well coached team, some good games , some not so. To say he's a better player than Walker at this stage isnt just daft, its ridiculous. Welsbys got serious talent, So has Walker, Walkers got the miles on the clock. Leeds decided they didnt need to sign a fullback because they had an teenage Walker, Saints decided to sign Coote, despite having a teenage Welsby, so once again, its irrelevant how he got his opportunity.
  5. What level are these NSW country teams in the Australian system? Are they the best u16's and U18's NSW has to offer, signed up to NRL clubs? Both have gave Leeds u16's and u18's 30 point beatings at Headingley today.
  6. Its irrelevant how he got his opportunity, daft argument that could be used for any youngster getting a first team chance. he got his chance, and he's played well in the biggest games a club side will play and regularly plays well at superleague level, right now, thats way more than Welsby has done. His development is going fine, he's only turned 20 in August and when fit, which has been an issue for him, he's been good.
  7. Indeed...When it comes to young British players, the more good ones the better. Despite the rivalry between teams, if Saints, Wigan, Giants or whoever...Are producing quality youngsters, then im happpy.
  8. Distribution at Academy level and distribution at first team level are completely different challenges. Time will tell, right now though, il take the lad who's actually done something at first team level. This isnt a knock on Welsby by the way, i think he's a fantastic prospect.
  9. But your convinced by Welsby? Walker was playing, and playing well , in Grand finals and world club championships when he was Welsbys age. Club bias aside, both are very good young players who could be top class.
  10. Delighted he'l be playing in superleague.
  11. Corey Johnson at Leeds is the one tipped for big things, made his debut against Warrington in the last game of last season.
  12. Whats so perilous about that? Its having some fun looking at how you think players are going to progress, its only perilous if your personality cant handle being wrong. In the thread you posted, i stated the team would no doubt be a fair bit different.
  13. I like these kind of threads and usually have a clear idea on my future 17...At present, i wouldnt know where to start, we'v so much exceptional talent between the ages of 15 and 22, the best in Quality and Quantity i can remember. All il predict is that we'l have a very good team in 2025.
  14. Think Ryan Carrs future will be the big one, if he stays, i expect Fev to go close and be a genuine chance of winning the championship next season. Whats happening with him? Im seeing...Back to Oz, Assistant at Leeds and Longo reminding people he's still contracted to Fev. If Carr leaves, iv heard James Webster mentioned, im a bit weary about this, not because he's a bad coach, i havnt got a clue if he's good or bad, i just hope, if it is Webster, he's appointed for the right reasons. He's very close to Agar and my worry is that itl have our fingerprints on it. Our partnership has flourished because its been a partnership, both clubs have helped each other, we'v worked closely, worked well and its been MUTUALLY beneficial, just hope we'v not give webster the big sale to Campbell with a view to how it helps us. I could be way off but its a worry i have. Susino and Minns are very good signings and im pretty sure, apart from Goulding, you'l see the Duel Reg lads nxt season, one or 2 other outstanding prospects you'l see a lot of aswel imo.
