Carr not gonna stay . Far to good at this level .

Not sure, he can have his good moments and even matches but sometimes his brain explodes. e.g. letting the ball bounce off a high bomb two games in a row, which in the Doncaster match resulted in them scoring. Not sure he's quite consistent enough to cut it at an established Championship club.

I'm a bit dismayed by several posts on here in the past week saying things like "far too good for this level" or " he won't stay, he's too good for this level". If all we have in the team are players that are only good enough to play in the Championship, guess where we'll be for the next God knows how many years. You've got it! The Championship! To me an attitude like that suggests a total lack of faith and ambition and I only hope the people doing the recruiting don't have the same level of ambition. I know we haven't got pots of cash but I think it's pretty safe to suggest that  that will apply to practically every team in the Championship and it's up to the club to do the best they can with what they have.

  I know one thing, the last time we were in the Championship, we didn't get out of it by not having players in the side who were "too good for that division". We had several, Esders, Lee, Thorman and Ross spring to mind straight away, not to mention Wayne Reittie and Luke Hardbottle. Roll on next season!

I agree with you there Con. Let's face it , he stepped straight out of reserve grade and into Championship rugby and it showed at times. I'm sure the lad will be a decent player but he isn't there yet in my eyes and at least a year in  Championship 1 should bring him on.

Tom Carr is possibly the most talented player on our books ! Everyone has an occasional blip , but this kid would play prop if asked!

Johnston for me.

and?

 

 

He's a very good player, but some of his mistakes have proved to be quite costly, he still needs time to improve. So therefore, I propose he stays, hones his trade in C1 and come back up with us to SL2 as one of the best FB's in the league.

Tom Carr is a young talented player I think a year in champ 2 wouldn't be a bad thing but the lad has ambitions like any other player and you have to remember at time the lad is only having a couple off hours kip after doing a night shift that has to take a toll at some point only time will tell what player are left and who gt brings in

Relegation has to be looked on positivly as you have to face reality. As an outsider to me you have an opportunity to build on your youth team to develop a TEAM that can bounce back. I remember Fev going down and the nucleous of the team they came back with has won the league 4 times on the bounce. Hunslet fans seem to be imploading

Now where did I leave that pointy thing that bloke Damocles gave me, I've work to do!

If every player we have had this season are to good to play champ1,why did we finish bottom of the the league?Maybe some of the so called better players could stick around next season and help us get us back to the championship and prove to us and themselves that their are better than champ1 players.

As a team we only had four/five players of Championship standard and those will sadly go.

You know me better than that, mate and even if I did this is the last place they'd be bandied about. There will be contract offers flying like confetti at the moment !!
