Question - could Liam Farrell be the next superstar loose forward, I like this lad, 22 and has bags of potential.
Great player, good pace, great hands and scores tries...and yeah, creates them.

Thoughts ....

......Not sure.......think he's more of a second row....I always see a LF as a slightly heavier/taller SO

I recall Harry Pinner being one of the best loose forwards at distributing the ball.

He was a very skilful player, great step, and good hands. Hard as well.

Steve Ward, will captain England without doubt and one of the young stars of our game, defo a loose forward and has it all, better than sinfield was at the same age and the next best thing since Hanley at loose IMO of course !

Good call.

Since the descent into ridiculousness with the scrum, do we still have a unique position at 13? Without shoving and toil in a scrummage, I see no difference in second row or loose forward

This laptop keyboard is see-rapp so , first time, I actually typed 'oozed cass'. Spotted it in time, or else it could have caused a major incident.

Without a doubt one of the best loose forwards I've seen. Nickau was another. Pinner had everything, could tackle, read the game, brilliant passer, tactical kicker. I reckon he'd still be able to do it in today's game.
