Good to see us keeping hold of some exciting prospects. Lots of future cover for hooker which would help in future if we have a smaller squad as expected.

Does sound quite final so expect no more will get contracts. Also confirms Donnell and Atkins jr are staying in the academy for 20/21.

Anyone better acquainted with the age group players able to talk more about who we've kept, who may have missed out and who looks like a prospect to join the senior academy next season?

Lads like Marcus Rhodes (8), Joe Keohane (TH) and Rory Morgan (9) probably the ones just missing the cut.

Overall it's a really talented group though. Guys like Haffar and Joseph have real star quality but any of them could make it. Couple of quality wings again as well as the curiosity of having three players who were all playing hooker for their school this year.
