Hugely disrespectful to say Offiah had 'just pace' - his speed has been replicated both before and since, what really made him unique was his acceleration and his ability to change direction / body swerve at full speed.



Martin Offiah played in an era when there wasn't as much emphasis on defending the bomb. However, at 6Ft+ and with natural ball skills, I suspect he would have been nowhere as weak as Kevin Penny.

Next season, it looks like Wakefield will have Kevin Penny and Rikki Sheriffe as their wingers. Plenty of excitement, entertainment and gaffes from both so fans will get their money's worth.

Sorry to see Kev go. Really exciting player. Yes gaffs but some fantastic tries. Disappointed witth Smith and especially Lowes (when in charge)for their apparent attitude towards his defensive problems. Lowes dropped several people seemingly for poor defence and in their absence it just got worse. Right to blame the player or the coach? Good luck at Wakey

It will be good news for Penny if he gets regular game-time next year.

But have Wakey signed anyone beyond next year, or is it inevitable that 2011 will be their last season in the top flight?

Yep, Kevin Penny for one.

To make a statement that a player would not have had the same impact against FT players is a complete myth - he wasn't FT at Widnes and many teams were full time whilst he was at Wigan. The guy was a phenomenon and would've been in any era.
He played outside some fantastic centre's too.
Sorry Kevin but i cannot promise that you will receive the same level of service at my beloved 'Wildcats'.
