Under 16's beat wigan 34-14 today. Looks like another strong group coming through, only defeat so far was a game in which we fielded a team of u15's.

very heavy going under foot today but we looked far superior and stronger than wigan imo in all departments and that is the benchmark in academy rugby.

the side have lost 1 game but played a totally u15 side in that loss so things are looking very promising for the future
Brian McDermott paraphrased Peter Fox.

When they persuaded Joe Burton to turn back on Cas and sign, that was a surprise. He will be an international centre.

The halfs are significantly better than last years halfs now in 19’s.

Burton looked sensational today and on a quagmire. The 16s look like a team that will be fantastic if the pitches ever dry out.

Interestingly Ellery Hanleys son played at 6 and full back for Wigan and scored but i don't think he's quite at his daddy's level.

I'd agree from what I've seen, both have great running and passing games

Burton was an excellent fullback as well as centre, and continues to grow. Joe is the equal of Broadbent at same age, who is equally a super player. Both are/were better than Newman at same age, who is also a very good player. Not sure that answers you, but might put a smile on face :D

Seems we are getting back to the days where we are attracting quality players in every year. Excited for this lot of youngsters.
