Not exactly an exciting game I thought, apart from some big hits and one or two flashes from the french. The young french scrum half had a good game - william somebody or other - he looked a class player, and I for one would love to see him in a Rams shirt .......... oh :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :lol:

Grumpy, he's already played for us! When Wozza was assistant coach to the French team (I think it was at that time) we had him to help develop his first team experience whilst on loan from Catalans, He played one game!

His name is William Barthau.

You dont do irony then CF - thought the rised eyebrows might be a give away. :) I remember in his first game barthau came off the bench at stand off and weaved his way through the opposition. sam tomkins style. I thought then that he was a talent. Of course he played his next match (if memory serves correct) at fullback, and even had a game at centre - everywhere in fact but his favoured position. It does go to show that while it's not possible to make a silk purse out of a pigs @rris, with the right coaching you can make a pigs @rris out of silk purse. :rolleyes:

Wasn't Barthau living with Oliver Elima in his time at Dewsbury?

No, Grumpy, I didn't notice the irony (walked right into that one didn't I!) and I did think he only played the once. Don't do those smiley things either. You probably think now I wouldn't understand an oxymoron if it slapped me in the face. I am though, quite familiar with Spoonerisms.
