Its the number 6 from the u16 that plays for England.


His name is Joe Keyes, also Cameron Pierce-Paul (Junior Pauls son) plays for England too. Cameron played for the U15s at centre.

Good try. Has a good sidestep as well. Good luck to him.

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.

Someone mentioned yesterday that the 6 in the 18's plays for Eng.

There wasn't to many standout players yesterday. Hudds dominated a large % of the game. We chased them back in the last 25 before Hudds scored and took the game away.

Lets not lose sight that Sargy, Dixon, Channing, Caro, Oscar, McMeakin (Still could be in the 18's) plus many others have all moved up in the last year or so.


Do lose sight of it. Players who are 19, 20 and 22 are not under 18s. Some of those guys do not qualify. Good young players yes, but not academy players.

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.

i got it this time. You've produced plenty of good players + others with real potential. This success of LB is rarely acknowledged.
