#3252578 Featherstone Rhinohawks

Posted by TheTerminator on 30 December 2015 - 05:41 PM

Surprised at this, as Featherstone look to have a very decent squad on paper. They've also spent hundreds of thousands developing their youth set-up, and as a result have some very promising young players on their books who need game-time in order to fulfil their potential.

Isn't there a huge paradox in them engaging with a system which is primarily aimed at developing players for another club?


#3251052 Where are they now?

Posted by TheTerminator on 24 December 2015 - 11:18 PM

all true fans.

I'm not sure why you've listed about 10 ex-players who are still well-known, high-profile figures in either RL or RU.

The point of interest around these 'where are they now?' articles is when you find out that a beloved former player owns a string of sex shops, or is banged up in a Thai jail for acting as a drugs mule.

Good for him. He didn't look out of place when I saw him play for Salford and deserved more opportunities in their first team.


#3243467 Lee Smith to play for nowt?....

Posted by TheTerminator on 05 December 2015 - 04:10 PM

Is Lee Smith really that bad? He did a decent job for Wakefield at the back end of last season and offers good cover in all the backline positions. Admittedly, his career has taken a downturn since leaving Leeds, but he's surely worth a years contract as a squad player.


#3240488 Sheffields new home

Posted by TheTerminator on 28 November 2015 - 01:41 PM

If Sheffield weren't successful, would anyone be that bothered about where they play?


#3233446 2016 Recruitment

Posted by TheTerminator on 13 November 2015 - 10:33 PM

That's a good signing. If the Visa application is successful he'll give us a real cutting edge. Having seen him play last season - both against us and for us, I'm not sure why Lowes pushed him out of the picture so quickly at Bradford.

'Cheap' and 'Attractive' don't actually have to go hand-in-hand when it comes to season ticket offers.


#3231714 Lee mitchell

Shouldn't this have its own thread, rather than hijacking this one ??

Correct. The moderators of this forum leave a lot to be desired.


#3231184 Half backs 2016

Posted by TheTerminator on 09 November 2015 - 10:17 PM

Having seen Glover in action for you on various occasions last season, I think he's a top prospect.


#3230514 Half backs 2016

Posted by TheTerminator on 08 November 2015 - 09:03 PM

Ben Reynolds was league ones player of the year before he signed for Leigh.
Leigh also offered him a new two year deal, and they have seen him the most, be that mostly on the training ground rather than field. You've seen him probably play once or twice. Says more about you than him if you don't know much about the lad.

There is no way I'd have Brambani over him. Half of that is because I'm being a supporter of my club and trust GM and co in their decisions and another is because if we want to be better, we need to attract players from bigger clubs. Rather than having Sheffields cast offs. It's testament that Leigh have give us him really.

More spin on this post than a Shane Warne googly.


#3225018 2016 Recruitment

Posted by TheTerminator on 01 November 2015 - 02:58 PM

he hasn't got the game knowledge for me after what i saw at workington when he ran into faal at marker nearly cost us a try

Absolutely agree with this. A huge lad who had potential, but he just didn't have any game awareness. Dropping the ball in the collision was also a massive problem for him.


#3222048 2016 wish list and rumour mill

Posted by TheTerminator on 27 October 2015 - 10:59 PM

Sheffield will be successful in 2016. Aston is probably the shrewdest coach in the game and will have meticulously scouted any new faces.

I was a little surprised that he'd signed Matt Fozard. He looked very average for us. However, I'll wager that he'll do a job for The Eagles.


#3219870 2016 Recruitment

Posted by TheTerminator on 24 October 2015 - 07:39 AM

Quite honestly, I wouldn't break the bank for Brown. Yes, I rate him and he always delivers for us. However, I've no doubt that his agent will ask for the usual 'full time' or 'Super League' release clauses in his contract.

We shouldn't allow ourselves to be used as a one/half a season stepping stone or a safety net again.


#3219792 Bulldogs marketing

Posted by TheTerminator on 23 October 2015 - 10:24 PM

This is very pleasing to hear. It appears that the club has listened to the fans. We need to be a partnership. Criticism is not always personal, it can often be very constructive.


#3218071 New signing

Posted by TheTerminator on 20 October 2015 - 08:46 PM

Yet every time someone has that opinion it's the same 2 or 3 on here who claim otherwise. Similar to the Kear out poll that was by far in favour of keeping Kear at batley.

I was in favour of keeping Kear - very much so, in fact.
However, I was still critical of the club's management and the lack of enterprise displayed in a number of areas. So were many,
many more.

As I said, the critics are not restricted to two or three people who all post on this forum - far from it.
