There are some really good players in the Academy team but he stands out with Welsby.
    Another one to watch for me is centre NICO RIZZELLI has been really eye catching.
    NICO has had a pretty decent season this year him and Simms should be challenging Costello for that back up centre spot.

    Lewis Dodd is another one to challenge, he is very similar to Richardson though but perhaps doesn’t have that physicality yet for Superleague. He needs to be introduced correctly though otherwise we will have another Richardson Scenario where Holbrook didn’t take him out of the firing line last season for a short spell instead of him losing progression whilst under pressure.

    I really like Nico, very talented, not sure what saints plans are for him though, if they cannot get him near the first team there would be other clubs circulating I imagine

    Lewis Dodd is imo far better talent than DR. I like DR and think he is s very good solid player, worthy of a SL spot, but Lewis Dodd is very talented, has a great attitude and with everyone's support will be a great addition to the first team

    My preference for young players is for them to be brought through slowly, some will settle into first team more quickly than others, it's not a race, if he's 18 or 22 before he is ready then so be it, he is very good and our backing is key to helping him and the others

    Quite a few of the highly talented academy lads will be stepping up into the reserves comp next season.

    It helps teams retain their talent, but you also have the attraction of first team footy at another club, it's better for players also as it gives them opportunities to showcase their talent and try to get a better deal

    Good luck to them

    Suppose we’ll have to see how Smith gets on next year but he’s got a long way to go yet if he wants to replace Roby IMO.

    As do all other hookers in our game to be honest

    We do need s very good hooker, it's so important to have a good player in that position, smith is good but not sure he is good enough for siants yet, which I guess was your point
