No they are not - Joel Tomkins has never shirked confrontation or a tackle with a player of any size, Bailey has made a cowardly retreat a trademark.

Tomkins is young enough and talented enough to mature into the best British second rower for years to come - he isn't far off at the moment (13 tries and 7 assists in 27 regular season games this season), whereas Bailey will never be the best prop in a Leeds team.


no doubt Tomkins is the better player, but just because he's more prepared to face the music from his actions doesn't make him a less dirty player than Bailey. I've read on the wigan board some fans fear Tomkins may struggle to catch the side if his discipline doesn't improve due to the strenth of your new recruits.

That may benefit him in the long run. If MM has the option of dropping him if his discipline doesn't improve it may concentrate his mind onto playing the game instead.

Look what happened to Tomkins, S & Ganson. Got sent off for descent, but the lesson seems to have stuck, never seen him get done since.

Baily on the other hand is beyond redemption. tongue.gif

Don;t worry about him - he used to have a pop at me and Cas all the time - now he loves me!! ;-)
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.

hoho seems to me we have a guy who supported a team that tasted glory for a few years and then shrank back to the rightful place in the lower ranks were it is to be hoped they stay.
lets hope that halifax claim the super league place up for grabs next time .
by the way i think your refering to syd hynes who certainly never hid when the going got tough and given he never weighed more than 11st always seemed to tough for widnes to handle even when there much vaunted thug forwards were at there peak .

ah a sunday night in front of the telly watching old rugby league games.
does life get any better .
