Printer genuine question who are the official big clubs then is it Saints,Wigan,Leeds,& Wire and maybe Hull fc then, Because i like watching other teams players when we Wakey are playing them and i don't know all there names but Cas have a very good young lad i think called Trueman and another one but don't know is name both exciting prospects , And then there's Hudds who have got some good young players gaining first team experience in a struggling side and then us Wakey we have young Kershaw who is on par with regan grace of saints with is speed only difference is regan is playing first team now where as Kershaw's case he got a so-called player called Tom Johnstone in front of him who was developed by wakey so we are all producing good young players just some get there opportunity before others pending on who there coach is so it's not just the so-called top 5 clubs who are producing better youngsters than the rest of us in my opinion.


How many games has Kershaw played exactly and Johnstone is injured so not in the way and Kershaw still isn’t being picked now. Not saying other clubs can’t name one or two but it’s not as much.

Powell gets along of plaudits for being a top coach, but how many players has he developed from their own academy?




Not many. Of which he has received some criticism .

Some great players, but also some very average ones, their team from 2006 was probably better

If we had a time machine, it would make an excellent game.
There is some real quality in the current Saints line up and I dont see the walkover that you suggest ?

The 2006 team was better.

That said there are plenty of teams over the years from other clubs who would beat the current saints team. Well, certainly from Leeds, Bradford and Wigan. Struggling for other clubs
The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

Say something negative about any other team than theirs - Its an opinion

Say something negative about Leigh and Wakefield - TROLL
