Signing Burns would make a great deal of sense if

a) There's a high probability that Walsh has played his last game for Saints


B) There's an option to bring him in early of KR don't make the playoffs.

Otherwise I'm not sure it's a great move, especially at the price that's being bandied about.

I'm not unhappy with the idea - I'd also  like the SL teams to be the CC winners, the League winners and the GF winners. As for the 2 other Aussie clubs, we need to be realistic. Would we expect the top 3 FA premiership teams to agree to go off to play in Aus? Because that's about the comparable status of the two sports here and over there. What we need to do is make sure we beat who comes over.

A good signing for the Broncos. I always thought he was a bit soft defensively, but he's done a decent job at Wakey this season.

In Topic: best game you ever saw

24 July 2014 - 12:38 PM

Been to some great Wigan v Saints games (not so much recently), and had a surreal out of body experience due to over-excitement at a Cas-Leeds game at Wheldon Road when it looked like Iestyn Harris was about to score a winner (his hat-trick try I think) for Leeds (Cas-Leeds would be my general choice for almost guaranteed entertainment).

But the best would be the 'voluntary tackle' grand final. A good game, a great finish, and made all the better by Jimmy Lowes' massive whinefest.

I can't include the WC semi because it still makes me feel sick to think of it. F'in Sinfield!

I wish I'd been at the 'wide to west' game, that must have been something, although I suspect you had to be watching it on TV to get the full impact of Matt Elliot falling off his seat at the end.

In Topic: James Lowes to be announced as new Bradford Bulls coach....

Well at least the Bradford fans now have the consolation in knowing that even if Cummins had been sacked at Easter it wouldn't have helped anything.
