What's youre view of Johnsons skillset? Is he likely to make the step up in your opinion?

Any other of the academy you particularly think will make the grade?

I have said on here since he was 15 Johnson would make the grade and be a star. He has always had the x factor. That said, I do think he hasn't progressed as quickly as he should have this year, but I am convinced that is down to the standard of rugby he has mainly played at (under 19's, and he is above that level). He needs to be playing at a higher level. I was at the Yorkshire v Lancashire academy game a few weeks back, the decider. He and Walters for Lancashire were head and shoulders above everyone else on the pitch. He actually got moved in that game to stand off, and looked the real deal. What I do know is that playing second fiddle to Dwyer will not enhance his progression. It really needs to be a big star hooker, with Corey as his deputy.

Of the others, I already said previously about Broadbent, and for me the top one of the lot is Walters. Anybody who doesn't develop Walters into a top class player shouldn't be involved in player development. He has everything.

Johnson makes tackles but has an issue of inching backwards before contact and riding the tackle but losing collision. It's an issue that needs resolving. He leads the line, gets braced for contact and then edges backwards a few inch.

Quality and clever around the ruck tho. Really good.

If his conract improves hes got massive potential.

As Gotcha says Walters looks the real deal but again at times his defence needs to improve but it will I'm sure. He needs to fill out and hes a real stud in the making. Money well spent on him.
