Although reported as the Yorkshire Carnegie academy-itís technically not been that for a year (Leeds based probably the most accurate description)

Probably inevitable given the RFU financial straits but a very sad day. Feel very sorry for the coaches after all they went through last year for it to end like this.

Many many good players who are plying their trade all over came through that academy. For those following in their footsteps now it just got a whole load harder.

Agreed, sad day for Yorkshire rugby.

One of the most productive academies in the country. Not only of players but of coaches including a National team coach! Sad indeed. Rugby Union in Leeds appears to be sinking fast. A straw anyone?
