He blew his cover when we played you at your place last season😂😂😂

Worst defensive effort I have ever seen from a winger, it was obvious he was on your side😂👍

Get your own players then 🙂

I have said it before, but Leeds produce more players than any other club. This also raises questions about how long Saints dominance can continue with so few quality young players coming through compared to Leeds.

Leeds - 8

Wigan - 6

Saints - 2

Warrington - 5

Huddersfield - 4

Leeds Fan creates fantasy team and fills it with Leeds players. SKS then uses fantasy team created by a Leeds fan to try and justify his endless claims that Leeds produce more players 🤣 🤣 🤣

Which young Saints players should have been included that were missed off?

Whilst your right that im a Leeds fan, that its just my opinion and that it certainly means nothing in regards to how each club will fare over the coming years as SKS suggests, i certainly havnt picked Leeds players because they play for Leeds, all the players iv mentioned are in there on merit in comprison to there peers in that age group imo. The only one who i could see why people would think he's there because he's Leeds is Corey Johnson, but he is an exceptional talent at 9, all the other Leeds players have played well in SL and most are in international reckoning, be that Knights or full England, they're getting there recognition off more important judges than me. Saints have no doubt got plenty of excellent young players in there system, but if i havt seen them or know of them, i cant include them. 

 

I know you were replying to SKS comparing clubs, but hopefully this thread dosnt decend into a my club vs your club debate, we should all be excited about the talent coming through at all the British clubs.

Matty English is 24, i capped my selections at 23 and under.

 

Wilson hasnt kicked on as id hoped so far, Ebon Scurr was my last prop selected, he's impressed me more than Wilson from what iv seen, but again, i wont of seen as much of Wilson as you.

Did you miss my list earlier?

Simm, Wingfield, Foster are next in the pipeline. Simm and Wingfield in particular stand a very good chance at making it. Simm should keep his place over Hopoate this week in my opinion, and Wingfield has been keeping Bell out of our 21 man squads, and one of Woolfs favourites. Wingfields biggest problem is Knowles, both being 13s, though that’s a problem over the next few years.

Bennison, Sambou, Martyn, Pemberton, Baxter, Sumner are all next in line. The only difference between Saints and Leeds development is Saints haven’t had to throw them in to the first team because they’re needed, and can develop them at their own pace.

Jack Walker is heading the same way as Jordan Lilley I think. You know when players are going to make it. Tom Johnstone has injuries but when he returns he lights the game up. Walker doesn't seem quick, doesn't dominate in the backline like a full back should and is not exactly a defensive rock at the back. 

Still young Jack Walker though so time on his side.

I hope Saints win tomorrow but id love to see Johnstone get the ball find a gap and sprint away. He really is exciting to watch.
