Thats true maybe a recruiting ground as Otley have 2 teams and a good academy system we play starting with their 2nd team vs their under 11s

More telling is they have us listed as Leeds Carnegie - something we don't know about winking smiley

Should our pre season games be a bit stronger to test how good the squad is. Remember the begining of last season being savaged by London scottish

I agree with that, wouldnt harm playing Bath or similar again to test the players.

Comes up most years this.

A couple of seasons ago Bryan Redpath, I think?, arranged a couple of friendlies against Premiership opposition and we got beat.

Some people on here didn't like that and thought we should be playing teams we can beat easily so we can pretend it's all good.

Personally, I'd start with one or two easy ones to test the plays/partnerships out then put it to the test with a final friendly against high profile opposition at Headingley.

I would agree with this, and I think we would get a decent premiership team over. Given the back line they have now got - Sale would be a good draw, especially as I bet you would get a few of their fines making the short trip (yes I am slightly biased in this view as I grew up over that way following them!)
