Bit disappointed Wakefield didn't come in with a last minute bid, I've got "Wakey sign" bookmarked on my pc.

I'm a bit under-whelmed by this signing, but he will make up the squad numbers and will be relatively cheap. If everyone is fit, he won't make the side, but when is everyone ever fit?

Agar needs to find a new scapegoat in time for next season.

Another FC reject goes to Rovers.

If he's not missing tackles, he's dropping balls. Very average player at best, who had a few decent games but one hell of a lot more shockers.

I am delighted by this signing...particuarly when I heard the figures involved!

Craig Hall has all the attacking potential in the world and, with the right coaching, would have been an automatic selection for England by now.

The defensive deficiances in his game are by no means insurmountable for a coach of Justin Morgan's calibre and, with time on his side, he could go on to enjoy a long, illustrious career at his 'spiritual home'!

Craig Hall joins Richard Horne, Paul King, Paul Cooke, Richard Fletcher, Kirk Yeaman, Danny Washbrook, Tommy Lee...all prodigiously talented youngsters, who have failed to fulfill anything like their potential whilst at Hull FC!

Am interested to see how he goes in a new setup. It is good to see that the likes of him and Penny are given a chance at other SL clubs rather than being thrown on the scrapheap.

We have seen a few times that players can go on and thrive in another club working under a different coach.

I look forward to the Messiah turning Hall into an England regular by the time the WC comes around rolleyes.gif

I see Kirk Yeaman's pulled out of the England train on squad.

Once Justin's worked his magic on Craig Hall, we'll have an automatic replacement.

Even Wakefield have a standard which they won't drop below.

Good point, I hadn't thought of that.

Good signing. Young lad with very good pace and footwork, can play at and through the defensive line. Will add to our team with something we don't have. Yes he has problems with his game, but these can be worked on. What you can't coach someone is how to run a great deal faster. He will also benefit if he can be given on position and can play that all the time.

I don't normally slag off our cross city rivals but in this case they deserve a total kicking. The treatment of this lad ever since he broke into the 1st team has been shocking, from the ex coach Peter Sharp blaming him for losing a game at Quins (i think) on his Super League debut (2nd 1st team game) on Radio Humberside, the interviewer said "your not blaming the young lad are you?" "Yes I am" says Peter not so! And so it has continued with Agar. As soon as he got out of there (Widnes) he starts to find form and confidence. Goes back to Hull and looks great against us in a Derby at Craven Park, 2 games later out of the team confidence gone again after another blame session on air from the coach.

Good luck to you Craig and welcome to the club you were born to play for!

Because your obviously a touch mentally challenged I will explain it to you.

Craig's Father is a Rovers legend, having a long and distinguised career winning many honours and trophys therefore he was born to play for Hull KR.

Do try and keep up little one.

Hall is well worth taking a chance on. Anyone who's seen him play knows he has great attacking prowess. His defensive deficiencies and perhaps physique could be worked on and improved by a good coach - something he's never had at Hull.

How long have you been watching Rovers? A legend laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif A good player yes but not to rank alongside players like Millward, Lowe or Beetson.
