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.

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.
