According to the main totalrl website Keith Mason has been released by Huddersfield. He would do a good job for us.

Heard on Radio Cumbia that we've brought Mike Whitehead out of retirement as cover for injured props McGoff and Butler. Really hope this isnt true and that its a wind up. Cant see how this is of any benefit to us as a club, an overweight lazy has-been who wasnt that good in his prime. Then again, being the coach's best mate certainly helps.

bloody hell mate thats a bit harsh...thought Mike played excellent against us up at Derwent Park in August and was one of the better players in their televised defeat at Donny.

If he was to sign on on a pay as you play deal to cover injuries...as we have already, I can understand it even if he is Holtys best mate :)

Whiteheads greatest achievement was scoring the try that cost us the CC1 leaue leaders crown!

I think if we had signed him last season people's attitude would be different. He in my opinion, can still do a job at championship level and on a pay as you play deal its a no brainer to me....

About 4 seasons ago we were unexpectedly beaten at blackpool. When asked about it, after the game whitehead told a barrow supporter
" i couldnt be arsed myself ". Thats when i lost all respect for the guy, what an attitude.

mike gives it his all but I'm just not sure thats good enough for the championship. he had his sticky spells with town like sticking 2 fingers up at town fans. but when he moved on from that he gave a good service to town and is very solid in defence just not so great in attack
the futures bright,the futures blue and white

I think the signing of whitehead should be under the topic called joke. I'm sorry but this is a guy who was past it 4 years ago. Big lazy and a big mate of the coach. Strange signing. I hope this next signing is a prop who is going to take us forward rather than for a ride on the wage train such as bracek did all last season and l will be very surprised if whitehead is pay as you play.

Noone was a good player and your criticism of him was harsh.

Noone did ok for us but did very little at Oldham which makes me think he is passed it. Why not put the effort into someone like Danny morrow or James Gordon rather that offer an out of towner a good deal. Give this to a deserving local
