I assume it means he's only allowed to play for Featherstone Rovers on his current visa!

I don't think it's anything sinister. His visa might just say he can work for Featherstone rovers! The wording may not facilitate a loan agreement. It'll be something in the legalese - not "crusaderesk" in origin!

Yeah noticed the loan deal with him as gone under.

Been honest i cant understnad why the lad has not been given a chance playing for us in the first team.

Yeah his pace as not been as expected butthe lad is stong and can tackle!!

Why they would let him on loan his confusing huh.gif

I expect good things coming from him in the future.

It's not the case of leaving someone out.

He could of been given a chance in the CC for example.

Yeah team is playing verywell as a unit but he must be alot fitter than he was at the start noticed he's been playing very well in the reserves.

His time will come in sure smile.gif

i personally would have played him in the cup, but daryl had to get the team balance correctly. There is a very strong argument for keeping a winning team as much in tact as possible.
With everyone fit, i can't see him displacing anyone currently playing in the first team

Jon Steel has been dropped would have been nice to see Lasen in that slot, isn't he playing more at SR for the ressies these days? maybe he could get a slot on bench for utility value!

Cummins Out.

steel was rested on sunday, and made way for coady at sheffield.
Like i asked, now we are playing back in the league, who are you going to drop to place larsen? Coady is a far better quality player, and steel has pace. The bench is well equipt with 3 forrads for rotation which is seen as a minimum these days and kain. So Who are you dropping?

Cant see anybody getting dropped and squad rotation just doesn't work, feel sorry for him because hes an excellent player.

Cummins Out.

Better let DP know about squad rotation. According to the Express Tonks, Saxton, Field and Allan all play tonight.

Easy saxton although he's playing well he's a full back playing on the wing and it shows
doesn't go for the line like a proper winger unlike steel and runs across the pitch nearly as much as the legend Dave Hartley

saxton!!! no way, he is having one of his best seasons so far!!! always willing to take the ball and seems to take 2 or 3 players to get him down.

And Larsen is a centre! Tommy is having his best season in a rovers shirt in my opinion and has had some outstanding games this season on the wing. I just can't see how Larsen would bring anywhere near what Tommy does to the team playing on the wing. Just my thoughts like.

I agree that he is having his best season but thats not hard because he was appalling last year playing as a fullback playing centre but the question was who would you drop and the concensus of our group who stand behind the sticks it's tommy

Yes, I realise what position it states on his cv. And I believe he will have played wing at some level at some point.

But - He plays at centre in the reserves and has so far shown he has nowhere near the pace for a winger, tho there has been a steady improvement in his game - and certainly doesn't appear as fast or effective as tommy does on the wing - yet!!
