It might take a couple of years for all of them to come through (though personally I'd be accelerating some of them straight past the Select team into the first XV) and not all of them will make it, but find it very encouraging that 9 of the starting Wales U20 team yesterday were from the Blues, crucially including the whole front row, two of the back row, the half backs and tweeting o of the outside backs. A further two of the starting XV are from the Blues region and there was another Blue on the bench.
That's pretty good going. Certainly reflects will on our development system. I remember years ago when Wales U20s/U21s was largely made up of Llanelli players and Llanelli benefited massively and went on to have a few good years.
