Sounds like some ambitious long term plans and with the appointment of Riding and Shenton feels like a bit of extra investment in this area.

I think the investment in to the youth/academy set up by AP since the start of his ownership of the club is now starting to show the benefits of all that work and investment that been done behind the scenes. The appointment of Riding is certainly one that will take it up another level from the work that Danny Wilson has done. I think the way the game has been impacted due to covid clubs that have stuck with investing in the youth and the reserve grade will see an get the rewards compared to clubs that have lacked the foresight to invest in the future.

The futures bright the future is Black & White

he looks really good out of 9

People talked about Balmforth's size when we signed him but he has quickness and pace too.

Can definitely see where the Cunningham comparisons started

For all the bleating about our production line, so far this year we're averaging 7 homegrown in our 17 (can't remember whether Scott is technically ours but still :D ). We've also contributed to other clubs eg Abdull, Litten, Hadley at Rovers, Lyne at Wakefield, think we might have classed Westerman as ours once upon a time, Briscoe at Leeds etc. With Shenton and Pete Riding on board to give fresh impetus maybe we can keep progressing in this area.

Wakefield 6 Scott, Houghton, Fash, Lane, Wynne, Brown
Saints 7 Shaul, Scott, Wynne, Houghton, Fash, Lane, Shaul
Salford 8 Scott, McNamara, Houghton, Lane, Fash, Brown, Bowden, Shaul
Cas 7 Shaul, Wynne, McNamara, Houghton, Lane, Fash, Brown
Leeds 7 Shaul, McNamara, Houghton, Fash, Brown, Cator, Bowden

Will be interesting the decisions around the hooking role for next season. Especially with Houghton out of contract.

With Lovodua looking an absolute find, will he secure the starting hooking spot, and if Balmforths looking ready for a bench spot by the end of this season, we could save a big chunk of cap on Houghton

Interesting to see how Hodgson manages the situation
