Confirmed by Donny as leaving for Featherstone Rovers.
There's a clip of him Johnny Hawkins put on facebook. Not as far through as a carrot but bloody hell, this kid is fast.
When our coaching team get their hands on him he's going to score a belly full.

Looking around to find some detail, ah, the joys of google. :lol:

Interesting background, sounds like he could follow Greg's lead in playing all around the backs until finding a settled position.

I prefer these type of signings than some superstar, we have managed to do without SL players comfortably so far, its not as though we are desperate.

Daryl will turn these players into SL players at little cost.

Look at his references Kirkie and then have a look at the clip! Not many at our level that quick!! He'll come at the right price and witht he right coaching could be a right addition to our team. Genuine pace is something we've been short of this year.

Very fast with a stooped running style which makes him able to step off both feet in the blink of an eye and so difficult to tackle and read what he is going to do.
With some coaching and a good pre season this lad could light up the league and be one of those X factor players that rip up the opposition.

19 tries and 51 conversions for him this season, which puts him (just) at the top of our scoring charts. Awesomely quick, and the chasedown of Calderwood (he can be seen crossing the deadball line before turning to chase down) is one of the best things I've seen in a long time (although, the chase of the South Wales winger was just as good, even coming from the opposite wing). Nurtured well, he will rip teams apart.

There is no doubt the kid is fast but to use the clip of him catching Calderwood is misleading as Calderwood was making one of his first matches for some time on returning to semi-pro RL and was knackered after running 30 metres. If you notice the 30 something is like running through treacle and waiting to be tackled and time has caught up with Mark.. To be honest I never noticed the kid again in that match that Town won 45 - 18 after being 18 - nil down!!!!

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Correct, but not so obviously from that match. As I said the kid is fast.

No doubt you will see him again next year, running in our 16th try against Worky :P
