2024 l Academy, Scholarship & Reserves News : Sun Mar 19, 2023 9:09 am  
Two good wins to start the Reserves season 48 - 0 vs Bradford and 46 - 10 vs Cas, played some good rugby and scored some cracking trys. Plenty of the players still eligible for the Academy aswel. Always interested to see how the younger players are developing physically at the start of a season and we certainly look a big athletic team right across the park with 7 or 8 players somewhere between 6 ft 2 and 6 ft 6.

The Academy season starts this week after a cancellation to the opening round fixture.

Good promising start to Tony Smiths tenure.

The ever impressive Mark Butterill has a good set of players to work with this season, the U16's especially are a great intake, which more or less sweeped up all the best players in the Yorkshire league. Theres other good players in the group but the Names to watch out for imo:

Harry Smith - HB
Pressley Cassell - 13
Harley Thomas - FB/C
Callum Webster - BR/C
Joe Butterfield - Prop
Dylan Hutchinson - HB/FB
Marcus QareQare - FB/W
Jermaine Oladipupo - Prop
Jacob Stead - BR

The U15's intake missed a few players who are heading over to Lancashire, 2 going Saints, 1 warrington and Cas kept a couple in Yorkshire, but still a good intake, led by Zak Lloyd from Siddal, who's the best U15 in Yorkshire, and from what iv seen, in the country imo, big, fast, skillfull, intelligent. He can play anywhere, FB, 6, 13, Centre, SR...And he's excellent in all of them, interested to see where the club play him.
Sounds like the production line is still working - thanks for the update.

Wasn’t our QareQare supposed to be the better brother..?

Too early to say with ours being so young, he's certainly a classy player with great feet though, the potentials there.

I didnt see much of Jason at the same age so cant even compare on that front.

Buterill will be a massive loss to the club.
