A rocks and diamonds sort of player who had struggled to get some game for the Bulldogs this year. Can be brilliant at times then 2 minutes later come up with schoolboy clangers.

Every club he's been at seem to have questioned his attitude and application even though his talent is not in doubt.

I assume he will not be turning out for Samoa in the 4 Nations then?

Apart from picking the best hooker

Horses for courses mate.

I personally think McIlorum's aggression (and underrated skill) and Clark's pace from dummy half are our best combination to beat Samoa, Australia, and New Zealand.

I wouldn't be too unhappy to see Higham rather than McIlorum though.

A lesson for all clubs here I think. Player power = chaos.

I hope Mick Potter gets the Tigers into the top 8 and triggers the clause in his contract that entitles him to continue as Head Coach next year.

As happened at the Bulls, Potter continues to conduct himself with the utmost professionalism and dignity. If the Tigers do get rid I'd love to see him back in the British game.

Higham rates better as an all round hooker at the moment than Clark IMO. His distribution and game awareness around the ruck is better, but obviously Clark wins hands down on speed and agility.

When Clark is the same age as Higham though, I dare say his career will have easily surpassed Micky's. For the 4 Nations I'd be picking Mcilorum with Daz Clark off the Bench. Nothing to be gained with an ageing Higham in the team for me.
