do you really think so Rob???
The fact that the coach identified the need to sign him might suggest he doesn't share your point of view.

I don't dislike Jack. He's an honest lad who puts the graft in, and is very strong near the opposition line. But Ben Kaye offered the team a whole different aspect. Class player.

Yes. I think it's swings and roundabouts, you wouldn't see Kaye burrowing his over the line with four defenders. But kayes distribution and brain I think is quicker. If either player had both they'd be playing regulurly in super league.

Jack's a good lad rob. I don't want it to appear that i'm being critical of him, but ben is that class above. He was, for a month the best hooker in our league. IMO, jack isn't anywhere near sl class. But a reasonable honest grafter at our level.
There's been no coincidence our style of play , movement around the pitch and most importantly results have improved no end since ben's arrival.
Jack now has an opportunity to reinforce his case.

I guess the first question has to be does Kaye want to come back?

answer to that is most def yes phil. He's quickly got on wi the rest of the lads.
However it's never that simple when dealing with a contracted player!

this thread will no doubt do jacks confidence the world of good if he reads it dry.gif I dont think he does bad for a 'fat' bloke.....he gives his all when he comes on and thats all you can ask for. It would be good for the squad strength wise if kaye came back but I'm sure jack wont let us down in the meantime

TeT opinions are fine but personal insults against your own players are not on.

Ben Kaye is a very good player and it was noticable that the service today was slightly slower, mainly because Aaron Dobek, in particular, needs to pass the ball immediately rather than taking two steps first.

That's the time needed for the halves to have the space to make breaks rather than have the opposition defence in their faces.
