Despite much hope and praise was abysmal in a pre-season friendly against Wakefield, found wanting many times and has been no where near the first team picture since that one and only season appearance despite having first team choice wingers injured

Unsure if been playing in the reserves but will have to really up his game for me hope he is a success for you but may be a baptism of fire on Friday

LMAO at this signing, typical Sir Gary signing this, surprised he has signed for him, he stripped him of ability over 4 years ago at Batley.
Supporting a proper Rugby League club in the Heavy Woollen which is Batley Bulldogs, admire the demise, of the Dewsbury Rams.

Don't wanna sound funny here but haven't players played for some clubs and been totally ###### yet they go on to other clubs and have fantastic seasons don't shoot him down till he's played a few games might be surprised

Plus playing around good players that can rip teams apart help Simon brown and Sam Scott ring any bells

Got the ability back today with 2 tries on his debut against Featherstone. Go away and gibber somewhere else!

Today he was well and truly baptised ! Looks a useful player, knows how to finish a move and he is a good size, would he make a loose forward I ask?

If he can score tries on the wing, then leave him on the wing!

Question was not about try scoring ability more about physicality and where it's best used

Well didnt he make me look a fool

Your second best go forward player after nicholson for me, absolutely outstanding

I can only base my earlier comment on what id seen for my eyes - it makes you think is the problem closer to home and the coaching at Featherstone to blame for turning what appeared yesterday a pretty useful winger into something else while he was at Featherstone
