Are 'super academies' the future?

With the news Hull FC and Hull KR will pool resources to form a new 'super academy' to represent the city in junior rugby league from 2016, the academy system is the focus for BBC Super League Show pundits Jamie Peacock and Michael Shenton.

Cumbria and the North East currently operate as county-wide sides in the under-19 competition and Hull will join them - a prospect that has been met with mixed reviews.

Presenter Tanya Arnold, Leeds prop Peacock and Castleford centre Shenton discuss the pros and cons of the merger, and the future for growing rugby league talent throughout the British game.

You can see all the tries from every round of games on the Super League Show.
