Been an age , forgot what he looks like !! Certainly a spot there for a good centre but only as good as the quality of pill you're getting . And the more you're out of any team the better a player you get !
But all the best to him .

Who would you drop at centre then for Rooney, La Conner had his best game yesterday, and he kicks goals or Mossop, who can tackle but hasnt offered anything all season, its a area I think we have been struggling with all season since Rooney got injured, never mind half back.

No doubt . Connor and Rooney probably , as Rooney provides the defence Mossop has but gives more in offense . I'd really like to see Connor get a running opportunity , he has a sprinters build . Love to see him get a ball to scoot away with . Been a bit of a struggle to get much chance to shine so far . I think there's plenty there to work with though if he gets the right ball and space . Pretty tough off slow laboured ball though

Aye that's a reminder that all we want is to see is big Dan back sometime and fully fit , regardless of when , because it could so easily have gone the other way . If its any kind of risk we go with what we have and we get a new signing almost for the start of next season

This has come from Charlo mind, not saying your wrong but why would be say that if there's no chance of him playing??

it was only a couple of weeks back when dan said he wouldnt play again this term. but if he can come back that would be fantastic because hes the best centre we have by a mile. he would be 1st choice and let the other 3 fight it out for the other

Didn't Charlo also say he was back in full training?


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
