Warrington throwing cash around at anyone
At the moment. Thats more a reflection of how poor their youth development system is than the actual players they are targeting/Signed .
Pete Riding has a rep for offering the world and delivering nothing . His track record is poor at developing
Young talent.
And theres a lot of kids and parents in the game that can verify that . If you want to take the money then fade out of the game after 3 years hes your man . Any news on the 16s announcements???

Theyv been doing it for years, its a very poor approach imo. I know all clubs do it to a degree if the chance arrises to get a special talent from another clubs scholarship, but it appears to be a clear strategy for warrington, scout the 16's games through the season then throw money at other teams standouts. They'v done it to us, most notably with mickey learmonth and morgan smith, who were both seen as special talents, but didnt live up to the hype, although smith still has time to, and theyv tried to do it to us many more times. They did it with Ben Currie, Will Dagger, a lad from Widnes, theres quite a few more who's names escape me.

Iv heard the argument of there catchment area not being that great which forces there hand, but its a weak argument imo. Wigan have forged good links with siddal and sign quite a few to there scholorship straight from there, despite them being the other side of the pennines, theres nothing stopping warrington doing the same, instead of letting other clubs put time, money and effort into the lads, only to lose them to warringtons £££...As a club, leeds have the resources and talent pool that its not that much of a problem if we lose a couple, teams like wakefield and widnes arnt so fortunate.

Wakefield have the right amateur clubs and a rich local talent pool but everyone scouts the area and picks over the best of them leaving Wakefield to fight hard for their share or take the lads that get passed over.

Didn't Pete move from Cas to Wire this year. I've never met him or those who've worked with/under him, but I know the media saw it as a positive move, However i saw John Joyner on Backchat last week who said Cas hadn't brought anyone through their academy since Daryl Clark :shock: :shock: Always thought is Cas having a great academy but if that is true (and i was trying to work it out) then it's not great reading really.

Wire always seem to struggle to develop players into their first team. Only Ben Currie is the real success.

How can Joyner possibly come out with that? unless you misheard surely?

Right now playing consistently and staring for them, Milner and Holmes each week, both directly through the grades at Cas. Plenty of others getting games, but those two are fixtures, Milner around the same time as Clark and Holmes after wasn't he? Even Eden, top super league try scorer for them last season, started out through their academy and into first team, before coming back.
