I am assuming from your post you see quite a lot of our U18 players Cripesginger. Do you really think there is genuine talent in there that will break through to the 1st Team and shine or are they just hard grafters.
No idea why you would make that assumption. have seen most of our 18s games + seen the U18 players who rarely turn out for our 18s. For example Johnson and Aspinall our 2 England academy tourists, Mason who just missed out on the tour and Farrell rarely play 18s but are very good players. I would expect at least 5 of the giants 18s to get a full time contract while a couple or 3 others should be able to have a crack at championship rugby.
Only seen LB 18s live once up at Odsal and they played well against a very good Bulls team.
Ginge you missed what I was trying to say. I was of the belief McMeakin is is still under 18. I'm aware the rest are over 18.
Your right Oscar Thomas & Mike McMeakin can both still play U18s. Because of the squad depth we have at this level they are never needed. It's shown, it's better for their development to play up at U20s.
