Those lads arent in the reserves, they still with their respective amaateur clubs and only 17 or less.
Karl Olstrum took my eye at a  recent schools game, Small guy but made several good breaks.
Ross Gainford and Darren Seeds are of course nephews of David...so good pedigree's
Heard while back one of the Stainton's  lads at Egremont looked a very good good prospect ??

could be a good game tomorrow Brow v Kells 16's, good test for Olstrum if thatHerbert lad plays against him as he can match him for strength and pace
also like the look of Kells forwards Cunningham and Wilson, the second one good strong runner
Brocklebank would be the best round here BUT lacks the bit of pace to go through the gaps he creates
Pearson from Hensingham also worth a mention as for the two Smith lads surely you cannot pick them above the likes of Fisher and the strong loose forward on the Kells team

all 4 are very good players, the loose forward is a class act, as is fisher, the 2 smiths are very creative at half backs

i think from the players i mentioned before
Mcdonald, Flanagan, Brocklebank, Maxwell, Huby possibly Murray could all go straight into the U21's without any problems. Seeds and George would need to gain some strength but both very good prospects

To be honest i dont rate Olstrum that much he is a decent player who looks really good because there arent that many great players in he's league

Players like Michael Ramsden Gareth Herbert Tony Burns Stevie McMillan Mark Pearson are all worth a look at

He looked good enough against priestly college U18's the other week a side who are i think have never been beaten and most of their lads are on Warringtons books
