Two of those signings are probably why he is leaving, doesn't show much ambition does it.

If Shenton gets confirmed as a Saints signing I will be a happy happy man.

About time we had some pace in the backline, he isnt too shoddy with his defence either.

I wouldn't say pace is his greatest asset, he's more in the Paul Newlove mould (so should go well at Saints).

This post has astounded me!!

He's very very pacy and defensively outstanding.

massive loss to the club and a great asset for (presumably) Saints - Good luck to him
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

It was an astounding post, wasn't it? The idea that Shenton could be mentioned in the same sentence as Newlove is preposterous.

He's defensively solid. That's about it.

If Shenton signes for Saints i'll be very happy. He's not in the same class as Newlove yet but he has plently of developing to do. I remember when Newy first came to Saints he was brilliant in attack but his defence was somewhat dodgey and it took another couple of years before he became a truly world class player.
Hopefully Shenton will develop the same way.
Saints will have a pretty decent set of backs with Shenton, Soliola, Lomax, Pryce & Eastmond in it next year.

I've never seen what all the fuss is about. Solid player. Cas will bounce back.

This will have been the same developing Newlove who had already scored circa 200 tries in the top flight, played for GB for 6 years and had scored a try in the 33-10 test win at Melbourne in 1992 then? Nice to see how Saints shaped a low-key career. rolleyes.gif

Shenton will be a good signing but is not in the same class as Newlove TBH.

Is Gidley retiring at the end of the season? if he is will be sorry to see the back of him, one of the best imports to play SL i think. Oozes class.

I've never really seen the fuss about Shenton's supposed attacking prowess, has always looked like a poor man's Gary Connolly in my book - better defender than attacker. He'll go well for Saints who have struggled for a pair of centres in recent times, but if he is a straight replacement for Gidley then in my view it is a step down and more based on potential than polish.
