4 of the likely 17 in next week's World Cup Final will have come from that academy.

I honestly believe we have the best academy in the world.

Our academy? It is a shining light and it makes me very proud.


That's a very fair point Billy, though I can's see that, logistically, Toronto would be able to utilise it for Canadian youngsters and nor would we be particularly keen on losing our best young players to them before we've even had a couple of years out them for ourselves. Particularly over the next year when Toronto will be in the Championship, as they will be competing for exactly the same lads as ourselves. Going forward a couple of years and Noble's side may well be in SL so the dynamics would obviously change.

I'm trying not to be too negative about our chances, but I suspect Toronto may well have bought themselves into SL within the next two years or so, whilst we, if we ever do get back, will be some considerable time afterwards, which, again, would put us on the backburner for recruiting our own academy lads to actually play for the Bulls. Whilst I'd fully expect Nobby to do the logical thing and set up his own academy, in Canada, for Canadian talent (and wouldn't the RFL expect the same?), I hope our academy is nothing to do with the deal, to be honest.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

Looks to translate as "Bradford Bulls will DR with TWP" to me.....

TWP can’t dual reg players as far as i’m aware, due to them being on Canadian work visa’s. Hence them signing a load of trialists last season then getting shut of them early in the year because they were never going to get a game.
