First game of the season tonight against Wakey at Stanningley, match being streamed live on Rhinos facebook and youtube.

Strong team named with a potentialy devastating forward pack.

Looking forward to seeing how first years j Burton, Tindall and Delaney get on, all named in the starting side, all very good prospects.

Should be a very exciting season at academy level, cant wait.

Yes that is (should be) a very strong Leeds side. Looking forward to watching this tonight.

I loved the curtain raisers back in the day with burrow, maguire and chev et al coming through, it would be great if they were all curtain raisers again but think the club are doing right by stanningley who get all all the proceeds from the games we play there. Think its a fine balancing act the club are trying to achieve of listening to the fans and bringing a few curtain raisers back but still having a lot of games at stanningley and helping one of our community clubs get a bit of extra income.

This has been a superb performance by our youngsters tonight. Really enjoyable watch and they’ll be tough to beat this season.

McLelland kicking game has been superb. Forwards class.

Can only imagine what Jarrod OConnor and Sam Walters will add to this team.

We’ll have to see whether they get to play in our academy or loaned back to Widnes?
Impressed with the usual suspects tonight. Holroyd and Mustapha very strong. I hope these lads want to stay together now and achieve something together, because there’s some real quality and balance to this side I’ve not seen for a very long time.
I actually thought Wakey looked good in patches and they never gave up.
This U19s compares quite well with the period where the Goldens came through. In fact we’re going to have to make some smart calls on who we retain over the next few years - e.g. full backs with Walker, Golding, Whitton, Stephens. Centres also (especially with Watkins and Hurrell on long-term deals). Especially pleased with the academy pack though - there are a few excellent players at other clubs but we have the majority of the England forwards now. We have size but the lads can also play, which is fantastic.

How was the stream for everyone? Mine was fine for the game but didnt get any aftermatch reaction, just a fuzzy green screen!!

Really enjoyed the game, our forwards and McCllellend were outstanding.

That pack really is very strong. Tommy The Tank and Muizz was both outstanding.

The first 20 mins was sensational. This is a very very good 19s team.

McLelland showed touches of class, Broadbent has Always looked better as a left centre.

Really pleased with the display. Onto Widnes next week now.

Thought McClelland was the real star of the show. Some individuals gave a good account in patches, but McClelland really made it all tick. And Corey fed off it all night to keep the forwards powering.

Walters is an outstanding prospect, i am really excited about what he could become, O’Connor - to be honest, I don’t really understand his signing, he just doesn’t seem to have much about him and with the quality already in the squad it seems a weird one.






You know I've always been a dreamer
