I remain puzzled by some of the suggestions on here that these are duds. I was reading my Gillette year book last night only to discover that Hoffman and Lima both played in the 4 Nations LAST YEAR. Unless I picked up the wrong book we seem to have -
in the blue corner McGuire, Australian and Kiwi selectors and in the red corner NE, Lee and BS
It's not easy.
Kiwi's must be short on props then
I've merely offered my opinion that you have equal or better on 2 of the signings, i've conceded that Hoffman could be a good signing for you, therefore allowing you to spend on better quality.
You forgot your very own Hannibal of the red corner list but i think for differing reasons
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.
