#2998707 Travis Burns.

Posted by Viking Warrior on Today, 09:53 AM

How do you rate him mate? Brown has hinted that he could get first team action next year so hopefully he's a pretty good prospect.


Regarding Burns, while £100k might be high (assuming he's cost that much) and 3 years is a pretty long deal for a player of his age, I'm still happy that we've seemingly brought him in. He's a very good player, fills a big whole in our team, and his fiery competitiveness will also be a welcome addition. I think sometimes it's worth giving away a bit more than you'd ideally like to if the alternative is missing out altogether. It's been well reported that Wigan were also chasing him, and IF (the key word until this is confirmed) offering him a longer contract is what swayed things in our favour then so be it.


Welcome to Saints Travis! (I hope...) 



very highly cracking rugby brain and a good kicker, there is also rob fairclough who has just signed academy forms, and is an england international. saints are well off for outstanding young halves in the system

#2990639 Top eight teams

just delighted that we have made the play offs for the first time, just why licensing should never have been scrapped as we have been allowed to build a team rather than a mad rush to sign players just to stay up.

you don't know what you are missing girl the youngsters are superb and some are real talents like rob fairclough, josh eaves and jack unsworth apart from young ganson. and josh is steve gansons lad and is most certainly a sintelliner

wigans bully boy tactics really unsettled the rhinos from the off, when the opposition gives it them back they collapse like a house of cards as they did last friday at widnes, that said the rhinos just weren't at the races in the first 40. one last point when will mcillorum realise that he will never be fit to lace terry newtons boots, terry dished out the biff but he was a tremendous player as well which mcillorum isn't.

Never heard of Widnes?  Paul Simon's "Homeward Bound" was written on Widnes Railway station, at least that's what Paul Simon said.



and there is a brass plaque on the station wall to confirm it
