According to there are currently 23 ex-Leeds/Yorkshire Academy players plying their trade in the Premiership. A Matchday squad!


Highlight's what a good Academy there has been.

What it says about the club's ambition is another matter, these lads should be playing Premiership Rugby for Yorkshire!

Miserati - and Proud to be!

Looks like 20 to me. But my eyesight is not what it was. Still a lot though; sixth best in the country.

Who would you most like to see coming back and playing for us?

Luther Burrell would be nice but personally I would have Swainston or Denman back in a flash.

Hampo without a doubt. In my opinion the best 9 we have had in years. Made things happen, a bloody nightmare for the opposition

We've been through it all together.
