Because you're getting paid and if you're happy enough to take the cash when things are going well you should work for it when things aren't.

What's to say Brett doesn't prove he's worthy of the full back place and Briscoe get moved?

Good squad , good competition in every place with someone looking over you're shoulder = good incentive to play well . This is good news , end of story . No negative here.

Exactly! Your getting paid! Some players don't just think of the money, and think about how good they want to play

cant see carter staying much longer now use have signed briscoe

lets be honest hed rather play stand off or centre in a championship side rather than full back against the likes of hemel and gloucester. brett may not be here next season as he only signed a 1 year deal but dont you think were covering all eventualities. and just because ballard spat the dummy dosent mean brett will. it probably shows ballard couldnt play any other position but brett has plenty of options.

Are you trying to stir it up a bit mate? Just because Briscoe has signed doesn't mean Brett will throw his toys out of the pram and pack in with Town. I think that's just more wishful thinking on your part. I'm sure Brett will play a big part in the remainder of this season, he is a big part of our squad and we all love him up here. 


The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!

Nope not stirring anything up, when he got replaced by Briscoe earlier in the season he wasn't too happy about it, as he put that on twitter. Im not wishful thinking at all, id love carter down at barrow

My thoughts exactly voodoo . Big spoon being brought into the forum here . Not one town fan has had any negative comment to make or tied themselves in knots wondering how things are gonna pan out . You need a squad , and Brett is and will remain a huge part of it in a central position weaving his magic , and getting plenty of game time . He's multi talented and will do what he always does regardless of number . And position is just a starting base for him - he'll pop up anywhere and play his game as he's always done

but if you don't enjoy where your playing then why should they play there?

Players play rugby because they enjoy it and its there hobbie, not because there getting paid, unless your a full timer in super league

Interesting view . I can think of a few we've had getting a handy pay packet for not much return ...and no doubt plenty at other lower league teams to

Very romantic thought but some still choose to play amateur with their mates rather than sign but if your cloud cuckoo land theory stands up there'd never be contract negotiations as everyone would just play regardless of what they earned.

Carter is class and just because Town have signed another full back it doesn't mean that's it. He could play in other positions, Briscoe could play in other positions.

Nice try though. I'd expect comments like that from a Haven fan not a Barrow fan

Aye , and that'll give us a rock solid defender there I guess . Calders will regroup though I'm sure of that , I'm backing him to regain his confidence , he never lacks effort .
