This for next year I assume BR?

 

Who is he, where does he play?

 

I see your lot are still insistent on bringing the "bad boy" back...

Comparable?

I think he's a really good signing, he brings a big physical presence and at 28 should still have a fair bit left in the tank.

Agree with others.  have seen a fair bit of Weyman and he's a giant of a man, a real handful..  Should go well for Rovers.

Michael Weyman has been a regular for St George this season. He started as interchange in the first 3 weeks this season but had a month out (presumably through injury) before coming back in week 8 (again from the bench). Weyman has started 7 games and has come off the bench in 5.

Cracking signing. Arguably an upgrade on Paea, despite being slightly different types of player.

Also holds the title of ugliest player in the nrl, I'm wondering who in superleague wants to take that challenge on?

It looks like a positive signing for KR. There should be a few years left in him.

Very good sigining. Can see Hull FC picking him up in 4-5 years.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

4-5 months if he's any good.

Good signing for the Robins, due to a lengthy injury he has not reached the top level he was at prior to it! but he will do well in SL especially if he reaches his former powerhouse form!

Certainly seems to be the trend lately they have gone from Hull Gateshead to Hull Robins wasn't it us that got Hull's cast offs? what's your answer to that OF?

Hmmm, a player like this is on the market yet I don't hear a peep from a struggling club called Parramatta?

 

"Shakes head"

 

If he stays injury free, HKR should have a top signing.

:huh: Ooh, is that a question for me?, thanks, I'll take that as a compliment then.  :blush:

 

You're perfectly correct in your comment about Rovers signing Hull "cast offs", as players like Craig Hall, Josh Hodgson and Graeme Horne (via Huddersfield) were no longer wanted at Hull. 

 

However, describing your club captain Ben Galea and Shannon McDonnell as "cast offs" is stretching it a bit. If Rovers finances had been a bit better then I think both those players would still be at your club.

 

(On the Galea front, you could have him back on a free transfer for me.  :rolleyes: )
