The Cowboys have confirmed he's leaving.

And on the radio they're saying Huddersfield.

It seems pretty nailed on.

With him alongside Fa'alogo, Mason and Griffin the old days of Huddersfield having a pack that can't mix it with the rough boys are long gone.

That's me.  I'm done.

Off the topic of the thread title i know but speaking of packs, i've heard Bradford have signed Feka, which gives us a potential forward line next year of:

P - Lynch
H - L'Estrange
P - Scruton (replaced after 25 mins by Feka and back on the field after 30mins - repeat for 2nd half)
SR - Hall
SR - Whitehead
LF - Langley

Not a very mobile pack and not one i'm looking forward to watching to be honest (with the potentialexception of Whitehead and Scruton). Also wonder where that leaves the Burgess brothers unless we are planning to release one or both of Sculthorpe or Crossley.

Just back from injury
A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

I wouldn't associate Crabtree and Mason with rough stuff. Fa;alogo, defintiely, but not the former.

Crabtree isn't an "enforcer" type prop. Never has been.

Mason has his moments. It's noticeable that opposition teams muck around a lot less when he's on the field.

That's me.  I'm done.

Yes Crabtree has been injured, but both players IMHO have gone backwards.

Hudds need new powerful players.

O'donnell could prove a good signing for them.

O'Donnell is a very rough, and sometimes vicious player. If any on you have been watching State of Origin this year, you will know what I am talking about.

I suspect that his tactics will not go down well with English playerrs nor with English refereees, and he will be sitting on the sidelines for many SL matches.
