Welcome on board Callum. The lad is certainly big enough and young enough to learn it's up to him.

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.

Wow he's hugely massive . But it's the oldest truism in rugby that size doesn't make a good player or lack of it a bad one . Got to get stuck in , work hard and earn your spurs . Good luck to him , if he knuckles down he's certainly got a head start with that physique ! Well done to the board again . Good to have a core of quality locals

Worth the risk. Imagine a front row with him and coward in, there wont be any bigger thats for sure. Added a couple of good locals, but now id hope we were in contact with some ex super players to add that bit of experience that weve lost with losing thacks,dowes and briscoe. Richard moore would be a great signing, also looking by the photos of carter in his kilt and town top that he might well be with us next year. Lets hope so.
the futures bright,the futures blue and white

He's got to be the biggest player in professional rugby league! He should have no trouble getting his arms free to offload.

A good big un hopefully, adds some much needed size to our current squad of forwards. Has the oracle haven94 said he`s rubbish yet?

One of the Flimby players says they noticed him when they played Kells(?). He scored a couple of tries and was still going forward with players hanging off him.
Now to do the same at Pro level of course

Think they were playing LMR, or st pats.
