I wouldn't be surprised if he's had better coaching in skills in RU than he would have if he'd stayed in RL. We used to be way ahead in basic skills as a sport, now I'm not so sure.

He learnt his basic skills in mini junior RU then joined Lock Lane around 13 and then Cas Academy. In RU the fly half is the key pivotal position so he will have good experience of game management. We needed cover at halfback and this lad can develop into a star of the near future

When you talk about junior RU though, it really doesn’t teach that great, more about togetherness. When you talk about someone only looking good at juniors because they are big, never is this more true than union juniors. They play out of their own age groups, and can actually play and do, below age.

That said this kid got his skills somewhere, because skills wise he is quite an exciting player, with a good brain.

Have to disagree with you. Union mini and junior development is usually well planned and structured and concentrates on basic skills with no contact in the early years. It is well financed and brings large numbers of kids into the world of rugby. Of course it is not without its faults but in my experience age groups are well policed at least in England.

I do agree with you about this youngster who looks to have the class to make it to the top and would not be out of place in our first team right now.

I believe so yes, can McLelland still play academy rugby? If not we’d better hope Featherstone will play him or he’s going to be unable to play any Rugby League.

I have a hunch that Lolohea will start at full back
