Re your third point, whilst bringing academy players into the first team would certainly help their development, surely that would increase the risk of injury, particularly in high contact positions like the front row? An academy prop playing against a seasoned veteran is surely at higher risk? We've certainly seen games where due to injury, academy players are brought in to cover, and can get injured as a result.
