Congratulations to all six lads.

On a separate note

Can anyone explain to me why rugby union clubs always feel the need to tell you what school a new signing used to go to?

I mean, what's it got to do with anything?

It could be an acknowledgement of the school's part in that player's development. Our academy has close ties with many Yorkshire schools. Some of those schools (such as Woodhouse Grove) even host matches for the academy whilst providing some players for said match. Good publicity all round.

Cheers WW. Sounds fair enough to me.
