the above is already mentioned above, a backline that aint half bad. but what strikes me more at this stage is the backline beneath that again:
 
15. Tomi Lewis
14. Tom Williams
13. Cory Baldwin
12. Paul Asquith
11. Ioan Nicholas
10. Angus OBrien
9. Declan Smith / Kieran Hardy
 
and we still have Tomi Rogers, Ryan Conbeer coming through. Any inside centres coming through likely to be able to step up next season or two? Scott Lloyd?

From all reports I have read this lad Knott from the 18's is going to be some 12 in the future. Be about ready when Hadleigh decides to hang up his boots. 
good to know. look forward to seeing him play. Likely to be in contention to be centre for u23s then in a years time?

Very much so - his colleague playing at 13 Roberts - Joe I think is also pretty tasty as well.

I covered all the recent Wales U18 fixtures and he was by far their best player
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

With so many players coming through, and with current players it will be almost impossible to keep all of them, and some will go, like Josh etc.

Coaching staff's job is to release those who do not quite fit the bill!!!!
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

there is so much talent in wales, hopefully it can be funnelled in the right direction

Yes that is so true. Huge talent which needs to be nurtured. What really excites me is how naturally attacking some of these young lads are. Look at Conbeer - he is probably one of the most talented attacking players of his age. He is a natural try scorer in the mould of Ieuan & Shane.

Of course he can improve defensively both in positioning & technique but that can be taught - what cannot be taught is that ability to finish which comes naturally to some. Young Knott seems to have that extra time on the ball which Gavin had. 

On a purely selfish note I think Pivac & Stevo have realised that we have an abundance of talent coming through behind the scrum. Players like Clayton, Jonny & Fonotia are passing on good professional attitudes to help bring these players into the 1st 23.

On other sites I've seen 'Academy Watch' threads, where there's a list of academy players and where they're playing, how well they play etc. Could be worth a go on here.

Even younger than Knott and Roberts is winger Alex Varney who was amazing in a televised Rygbi Pawb U18 televised match.

Yes Ffidel young Varney looks like another natural try scorer. Was he involved in the under 18's Welsh team in their recent Internationals?

No, he wasn’t, which was very surprising as he looked like the most dangerous attacker in the Scarlets U18s team in the match highlights I saw.

Wales u18s selection is a disgrace. It's disproportionately skewed to the East, even in years like this when the Scarlets have been by far and away the best team.

There were also far more "Exiles" than usual including Carwyn Tuipoloto (excuse my spelling) who is coming back to join us next season. In the game v Ireland U18, that I watched at the Arms Park, he didn't actually come on from the bench, but a busload of Tongan supporters/family had come up to watch him. Carwyn is 6ft 2ins and 18st with no visible bola on him.  Not bad at 17 years of age. He'll be a big boy when he grows up !!!
As for the game, it wasn't of a particularly high standard, and of the 4/5 Exiles on show the best was a big prop who scrummaged and carried well. MOM was the Glantaf  second row.

I wonder if we are going to have another Billy Vunipola on our hands Ffidel. We can but dream. If we do lets hope we can keep him ftiter than Billy.

Bloody hell. He’s a kid. Give him a chance to play the game he loves for a few years before we start comparing him or putting expectations on him please.
