Would be nice but doubt it.

So far we know 5/6 players are joining Loughborough partnership program and that Phoenix Laulu-Togagae Is one of them.

Or 5/6 players have gotten academy contracts and it was Mia worded in the interview.

England posted a video on twitter from their recent U-18 training camp.

Could recognise Lewis Chessum, Tim Hoyt and Simon Koroiyadi in the video, no doubt there were others.
Goooooodeeeeeyyyyy!

The academy squad appears to have been reduced based on the profiles on the website. Can’t quite see who exactly has been removed from the website, but on first glance it appears Sterland and Tobeyaweni are among those no longer listed.

Not sure what this means exactly, just interesting to note.

Edit:

On second viewing these are the players no longer listed:
Archie Benford - lock
Cormac Calnan - centre
Dan Clements - prop
Tom Coton - hooker
Jay Ecclesfield - back row
Henry Joule - centre/full back
Noah Leo - flanker
Felix Martin - centre
Danny Meredith - wing
Callum Oakden - lock
Joe Plunkett - hooker
Roman Priestley-Nangle - wing
Harry Read - fly half/centre
Ollie Royer - scrum half
Jake Sterland - wing
Philippe Tandoh - lock/flanker
Jack Taylor - Full back
Tom Taylor - fly half
Saimone Tobeyaweni - centre

So using that thought train
Chessum (Lock)
Coton (Tighthead)
Cusick (Centre)
Gelderbloom (Scrum Half)
Hoyt (Tighthead)
Laulu-Togagae (Full Back)
Smith (Loosehead)
Vernum (Fly Half)
May have gotten contracts?

Suspect personally that isn't the case though.
Sterland would be a bizarre one not to give a contract too.

I don’t know a huge amount about the academy players, but I did think that there were some odd ones to be removed from the website given what I’ve heard, assuming that this does suggest they’re no longer part of the programme (Sterland being one of those).

I could be putting 2 + 2 together and making 5 of course - just thought it was interesting to see some changes on the website.

Could be one of a number of reasons.
1. Removed because they’ve been released.
2. Removed because they’ve been promoted but not yet updated development pictures.
3. Could be something in this rumoured tie in with Loughborough, not officially still with the club, but still semi retained. eg Laulu-Togagae has already been stated as joining a RL team until he goes to Loughborough.

Sterland for me would be the only real odd omission

First academy team up.

Tigers XV v Gloucester
O - Phoenix Laulu Togaga'e
N - Ben Moore
M - George Loose
L - Joe Woodward
K - Sam Jacques
J - Jack Vernum
I - Jed Gelderbloom
A - Seb Smith
B - Charlie Barraclough
C - Tim Hoyt
D - Finn Carnduff
E - Rob Carmichael
F - Josh Manz
H - Kip Horton
G - Ant Pedlar

Replacements:
Max Nolan
Jack Hurst
Jacob Odams
Dan Ormerod
Simon Koroiyadi
Fergus Makepeace
Morgan Meredith
Oscar Van Deventer
Ollie Arnold
Callum Richardson
Max Fairlie

Heard good things about the centres although will be interesting as both play 10 as well.
Only Smith, Hoyt, Gelderbloom and Vernum are players who regularly played last season I think so very new squad.
