Given the lack of senior signings to talk about who do you think might get a gig from our reserves and juniors. None of the young lads let us down last year and showed up some older pros for effort. I would like to see the young centres have a run out and in his brief appearance the young halfback (Woods)showed promise.

Josh Woods? I thought he did OK when he got rushed into the side. He has a decent kicking game too (something we all agree we need), and it'd be nice to see him get a bit more first team game-time. And I think everyone has high hopes for Ganson.

I'm a huge fan of Wells and I'm hoping to see him get more game time. It would be nice to see Jack Higginson get a few games in the World Cup and hopefully give us an extra option next year.

+1.
Also hope that Josh Ganson gets some game time. Unsure on Josh Woods as to me he lacks pace, but saying that, he and Harry Smith were far better than the Cas pair of McLelland and Truman who are very highly rated by many people in the Academy Grand Final.

Shorrocks for me - we need him to get fit and put pressure on the current half-backs because we really, really do need options there. Ganson as well because we need a different option at hooker than we currently have.

Might be a year or so early for Kibula but he has stood out every time I've seen him play. Brilliant hands for a big guy.

Shorrocks, Ganson and Wells are the three I'll have an eye on, though it may make sense to loan Ganson out to a Championship club to get him some game time.

It was interesting to see just how few third years were playing week in week out. Last year we turned some very good sides over with a majority of first years.

There's a first year winger named Nathaniel Marshall who I believe comes from the Bolton area and was signed at U15/16 level as "a project" in that he had never played RL before but was a county standard sprinter.
When I saw his first games his inexperience showed, and I'm being very polite.
However in his first year at U19 level this year he looks a completely different proposition, he has put size on and is still rapid. I really hope the lad does well, there must be hundreds of young athletes around the country who could do well in our game.

I am sure that we have a young lad called Hanley or some sutch comming through. I'm told his father was ok.
