As far as I can tell, Jamie has been brought back to do a specific job for the team over the next few weeks, organising and kicking. It's a pretty good call, as both Kain & Moore have been struggling with knocks. I don't think there's anyquestion of the club building a team around Jamie over the next few seasons or anything like that, but on balance I think it's worth a try. Good luck Jamie!

I fully agree Mark. If the injuries are prevelant to those players he is the ideal stand in. I am all for bringing on young players but we need experience in this position. Looking at some players older than him playing in Sl and in the forwards I reckon we could get some good service from him in our kicking game both goals and positional play not forgetting a bit of old head moves.

I think you will find Andy Hay is picking the team now FN as taken his teddy home

well we will have to agree to disagree on this one. I don't have to bring up previous well documented instances under Darryl and Shez in far less important season's than this one.

Might also not harm having an old head with SL experience around in the closing stages of the season, different circumstances as he was brought in as a coach but Sean Long really sparked the team at the end of last season.
