They certainly wont all make it, some are already making it, but these are the handful of players from each age group i really like the look of

Finished 19's eligibility at end of last season - M Oledzki, J Walker, C Smith, D Wait Pullan

3rd Year 19's - C McCllelland, H Newman, Muizz, O Trout, T Dupree, L McConnell

2nd year 19's - T Holroyd, J Broadbent, S Walters, C Johnson, B Martin, S Moorhouse

1st year 19's - L Delaney, J Mallison, H Anderson, R Rowley, O Burton, J Burton, L Tindall, I Stephens

Scholarship u16s - T Nicholas Wattern, A Wallace, S Little, L Atkinson, J Gibbons, O Field

Scholarship u15s - L Edwards, M Gannon, K Morgan, A Edghill, H Oldroyd

7 or 8 year ago id of struggled to name ten players in our whole system who i was excited about for there future prospects, good to see the club has got its eye back on the ball. From the 16's up, every one of them apart from Mallison, Moorhouse and Wait Pullan have gained representative recognition, be it England Youth, England Academy, Yorkshire, Lancashire or England Knights.

Marty, Gotcha, many thanks both.

Interesting thoughts. Stephens does have something, but whether that's at wing or FB in the modern game I'm not sure. He does have great footwork.

I see what you mean Gotcha about Dupree. He is big and mobile, but I don't see the X-factor that Holroyd has. For his size he should be very dominant. When Holroyd played against the Aussies he stepped up and monstered them, that's the difference.

Walters looks great going forward, but I thought he had a shocker in defence against was it Huddersfield? Not sure whether due to injury.

What happened to that Wetherby fullback, was is Sam Little?

Agree Dupree isnt the talent Holroyd is, but when he played for Yorkishire against the Aussies, Dupree had a good game against them aswel, think he's more a work in progress than Tom, but he's got what you cant teach, size and Athleticism. Dupree reminds me of Rob Mulhern when he was coming through, though id say Duprees better than Rob was at the same stage personally.

It’ll be interest to see where this goes with the academy dropping back to under 18s next season and the reserves returning.

Traditionally we’ve not done well for props from our academy. I remember watching Luke Burgess, Nick Scruton, Bailey, Danny Ward coming through. Can’t honestly think of many then until Oledski, other than Singleton who for me has gone backwards over the last season or two.

We seem to have a few prospects now. I would love to see a dominant, home-grown Leeds pack. I reckon 2-3 years could see it.

What I will say is that we have lads with the talent in this crop, it really is down to attitude now. I guess that’s the thing among the lads though. There is a clear path for them to create a new Leeds legacy together right through.

Weve also got an outstanding youngster signed despite very strong interest from Saints, Warrington and Wigan but that is a couple of months off being announced

I’ll look out for that one. I keep banging on about him but Levi Edwards could be anything in the game, looked the best player on the pitch every time I’ve seen him play and has a very complete game for such a young lad. Be interesting which age group he plays next year.

Singleton always lacked the natural size to me, just dosnt pack enough punch. One thing about our current crop coming through, theyr all giants and athletic. Oledzki, Holroyd, Moorehouse, Dupree will all be around 18st when they stop growing. Nicholas Wattern in the 16's is another who's a big lad, he's got really good skills aswel.

Rolling over Warrington here. Warrington can't handle the physicality of the Leeds pack.
