According to the Hdm Rovers are favourite to sign Mason for 2011 with 3 other SL clubs in the hunt. A big chunk out of the cap whoever signs him.

Will this signal the end of Stuart Fieldens career? laugh.gif

With a strong possibility of Fielden being at the KC next year it would spice up the Derby.

Theres only HKR allowed to be called Rovers apparently





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 assume the NQ Cowboys are quite happy to let Mr Mason go as it will reduce their salary cap a fair way. He is yesterdays man merely living off his reputation. Even with NSW having a pretty bad run and using loads of players this year Willie could get picked. It's a pretty sad sight to see a SL club even vaguely interested in him.
If I was a Featherstone fan I'd be quite relieved he wasn't coming.

Of course with a couple of his former Roosters team mates across the city at the KC, he would have a few mates to keep him company. Not sure if that's good or not though...

Do HKR even run a junior side any more? What is the point of franchising if clubs sign useless fat Aussies to steal a wage ahead of developing home grown talent?

A few days ago I was close to starting a thread with a poll asking which team people thought of when they heard/read 'Rovers'.

Reckoned no ###### would care though!

This could raise Hull KR's profile to glamour status down under, like it did for Wire when Joey signed.

Whatever you think of Mason he is one Aussie that will be known over here to sports fans and put bums on seats.

I always think of Featherstone. Or Blackburn.

One thing that does annoy me is the way Stevo refers to Hull KR as 'the Rovers'. Usually used in a sentence like 'The Rovers need to get the message out...'

Of course they do mate. 'Course they do.
