Wow - what an anti climax - is this your major signing?

Youll be lucky to get 10 minutes a half out of him, he was playing when GM had a paper round.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

A good couple of days for you guys with Morton and Aizue signing.

2 players who could have a big impact next season.

Sounds like GM has a plan in place.

well under wozzer, we only ever got ten minutes a half out of georgie boy - he could do a lot of damage in twenty minutes though. ;) We also only used to get twenty minutes out of big jim walker and he could do a lot of ...... OK - bad example. :rolleyes:

Decent signing, I guess. He's experienced and doesn't take a backward step. However, a wrecking-ball? These days, no.
What I'm looking for is someone who can contribute to what England has given to the world: culture, sophistication, genius. A little bit more than an 'ot dog, know what I mean?

A fair assessment. Depends what is expected of him next season. If he's to be used as a starting front line prop, it won't work these days. As an impact player, he takes some looking after for the ten mins a half that he's effective. During that 20 mins he could create some opportunities but these days thats's what he's limited to.Of all the 'experienced' signings that could be made, I'd suggest this is one of the better ones.

Hope you have better luck than you had with nick Fozzard in the ageing prop star signing of the off season.

He may be a wrecking ball but I will never forget Dane Morgan knocking him on his backside when he played for hull kr.

Things are looking up now :D

Good signing for Rams. Wasn't he in talks with Batley too? Apparently he wanted a crazy package and Batley said no.

I now applaud the signing seeing them lot whinge. They really do not back whoever is in charge of them. It seems that Sam Barlow is on his way to Salford too in swap + cash with Wayne Godwin coming the other way.

Think Rooney has signed to have another year at Whithaven.

Aizue is a great signing for us,he will be used as a impact player,a bit like when we had that great rams player Big Frank Watene,when he came on things happen.He might be coming to the end of his career,but he will still do a job.Also helping bring the younger lads to gain more experience.
