That is, stars from their academy. Obviously Wigan and Saints are untouchable when it comes to what they produce in the league. But where would everyone else place?

You mean rank them on the ability to steal young players away from their local clubs, because they are so cash rich?

To be fair, Julie Burgess' uterous has produced more elite talent than many of our "hotbed" clubs in recent years.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

This is true ha ha.

The idea that Wakefield and Huddersfield don’t produce many players from their academies because other clubs “steal” their players is a bit of a misnomer. When you consider Bradford continue to produce more quality players than both clubs put together.

The Wakefield Service Area produce far more than Bulls. How many amateur clubs are there in Bradford? 3? 4?

In the Bulls glory days, their academy was stacked with Normanton players.
