Just a thread to fill out the off-season (hope it doesn't descend into the usual bickering amongst the same posters)

So with England having a good series win over NZ and there being a bit of a feel good factor regarding England RL, who are the hot prospect players coming through your clubs academy that you're excited about that could pull on an England jersey in future. 3 years away until the WC, be interesting to see if in 3 years time any names on this thread make it. Shame we can't save it and look back in 10 years time and see how accurate (or wide of the mark we were with some of our presictions and what sort of careers they had)

At the Bulls:

Matty Storton - Second-Rower. Made his debut at 18 last year when we had no players. Played his second game towards end of season with about 2 games remaining of the regular season and performed so well he made himself undroppable for the play-offs and final.

Olly Wilson - Prop. Entering his third academy season. Made his first team debut this year and represented England academy. Really runs the ball in hard and didn't appear to have any consideration for his health.

Rowan Milnes - Stand-off. Entering third year in academy. Again represented England academy and made his first team debut. Still plenty of developing left in him, but you can seen the potential.

Kieran Brining - Centre/Wing. Just signed from scholarship and will be in his first academy season next year. But this kid looks good. If he makes it in SL, he will probably be the fastest player in the league and he looks a damn fine rugby player. One to watch.

Hull FC:

Connor Wynne - exciting Full Back has just signed a 3 year deal. Massively rated in the junior set up. Quick, great balance, footwork and strength

Cameron Scott - came from Bradford a couple of years ago, and got a bit of 1st team last year. Looks a natural centre, looking forward to seeing him progress

Jack Brown - very good prop, powerful. Be interesting to see how he develops

Hull KR

Will Oakes(wing) - played a handful of 1st team games but needs to learn from his mistakes.
Elliot Wallis(Wing) - Again played a couple of games for the 1st team, Looks a good prospect
Mikey Lewis(HB) - Along with Connor Wynne at Hull FC, he is an outstanding prospect signed by Hull KR from the joint academy. Him and Wynne were the best 2 players for the Academy.

How does the joint academy work in regards to signing a player? Is it first come first serve sort of thing?

The older ones were ring-fenced to the prospective clubs they had signed for prior to the merger of the academy. I think the 17's now were originally meant to be done as a draft system, but not sure if that has transpired. Connor Wynne was the first player to be signed from the non-ringfenced players and believe me, he is going to be some player. Same with Mikey Lewis, both very talented players

Mikey Lewis is a Hull FC fan signed for Hull KR .

Luke Hooley - A lad I'm really impressed with, played for us in the 19's and then was loaned out to Dewsbury and Oldham where by all accounts ripped it up. Got a bit of pace behind him and can also kick goals, very well rounded already at a very early age.

Excited to see whats to come.

Saints:

Jack Welsby (Stand Off)

Josh Eaves (Hooker)

Two players to watch out for very shortly.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Percival-Lomax--Grace-Thompson-Makinson-Swift-Walmsley, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

You can add Kershaw to that though it would take one hell of an injury crisis fir a winger to get a break at Wakefield these days. Like the look of Yusif Adin but early days.
