How good was he as a league player? Have watched him a few times for Sarries and he looks ok, but not great, and he is not a regular first team starter

I'll go first, a bloody good player, fast and not a centre.... He ain't a union type player, but his brother is

Great athlete, strong, quick, aggressive. Didn't have great natural rugby skills but could have become an absolute top class second rower. Nice guy as well unless you cross him or his kin on the pitch.

Your first post, what a surprise.

Try putting this question on the "Cross code forum" and you might get a reasonable debate.

Otherwise people might, with some justification, think you're a troll.

I think you need a certain number of posts before you can use the cross code forum.

That rule was probably brought in with some justification, as this thread seems to point out.

It's here for the OP.

If they can't see it from the link, your explanation will tell them why.

I guess tigersfan doesn't support Castleford, then.

And yes, you do need to establish a reputation before you can use the Cross Code Forum.

Be nice about league and don't use the word FACT (capital letters essential) then you'll be fine, whether you're Cas, Leicester, Wests or Cincinnati Bengals.

And yes, I'd welcome Tomkins, Eastmond, Adamson, Farrell, Ashton, Sa and even Myler back to the game. Anymore?!

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Leicester.
Can't seem to get into that forum, so how long does it take to establish a 'reputation'? Will the fact that I prefer union count against me?

No, but the content of your posting might.

A fair few posts. As long as you're not slagging us off, this is a league forum after all, then you'll be fine. Post on AOB if need be!

He was a second row forward at Wigan, pressed into playing centre when we had no be to play there. He is a top player, shame he moved to union when he did, too early, he still learning as a player. Watched him play for Sarries sat, played well, commentators thought so as well. He will play rah rah for England, he has bags of potential. Watch more closely, he is very skillful for a big guy.

Nothing.

league fans are twatsssss and the Yorkshire ones are the worst..... Honest..... You've asked a good and honest question.



It's not as though you've asked what is the difference between east ridings, humberside or east 'ull

I thought he was ok, couple of spilled passes, good defence. To me, he looks more like a flanker, but that takes ages to learn
