Cas obviously have a decent enough crop at this level. They turned Wigan over a couple of weeks ago too. Very obviously Leeds are leading with a young side in the academy, and preferring reserves for the second years.

Second part is incorrect, there are no second years playing for the reserves and missing Academy, they arnt good enough, the best 2 second years are McCormack and Corbett and they play for both
The doom and gloom continues. We only beat Cas by 24 points last night!!
That was Scholarship, which always recieves the praise it deserves

You should probably read the thread before posting
Extremely poor, error filled, performance from the reserves today in defeat to Warrington
Edgell and Littlewood played pretty well, as did Aliyu, Warren, Robinson, Smart, Campbell. Lumb had some errors but once he strengthens up he is tall and fast and evasive.

Boys against men at times but just like first grade, slack errors and penalties killed us.
Error after Error, dumb play after dumb play and penalty after penalty, very much like the first team, that is the story of our reserves and Academys season to date during their combined 1 win with 4 defeats.

But ’we'l learn from that' and 'we'l take plenty of positives away'

Problem is, they seem to take too many positives and not enough learning.

Another coach named Smith who should be firmly on the hot seat
Rohan smith, grix, walker and T Smith just inspire zero confidence as a coaching team it just all looks amateur.

Clubs usually have structures plays and calls that are consistent throughout the age groups and various teams, I shudder to imagine what that looks like for Leeds.
I thought Jack Sinfield looked more robust than last season, he has worked on his physicality.

Generally Wira looked physically more mature - but again when you’re playing opposition like that, you have to out-skill them and we failed to.

The ref allowed Warrington to lie on at the ruck to a ridiculous level too, it was embarrassing.

How are the games looking under the new rules?

I couldn’t see much evidence they’ve been applied mate. Night and day from last year, common sense may just have prevailed.

I was more bothered about the ref allowing Wire to lay on literally 5 seconds per ruck at times.
