Any views on Jansin Turgut?  This kid should have a big future at Hull FC by all acounts.

Their academy is a moot point. Same with Hull FC.



Is that the Hull FC Academy with 4 players in the England academy team playing tomorrow at Leigh?

Of course.


And if Kelly goes well he'll also be off after a year.


This is the way our system works so I don't really understand your point. Are you saying Rovers should have kept those players? Or that they weren't dragged kicking and screaming from them? Some clarification please.


No, I'm suggesting HKR have their sights set on mediocrity and are going all out once again to achieve it!

It's a shame they have taken so long to get any form of academy going - perhaps in a few years they might have more youngsters coming through, although it seems the better youngsters seem to prefer the club with name you don't like and meanwhile HKR pick up the cast offs.


Until the homegrown youngsters start coming through HKR will always have to look in the bargain basement and balance the books by selling on at a profit.

Some of HKR's signings have been very good indeed - Green, Burns and Patterson spring instantly to mind. The reality is that SL can only sign decent Aussies who have risks associated with them, so on that score I can't see what other option HKR have here...


Green, Burns and Patterson    -  All sold after 1 season!

The noise is usually the sound of breaking glass at back doors!


tbh I've lost count of the number of rumours going around who KR are supposed to be signing.

It seems like panic buying to me - lets face it is anyone convinced that the 2 from Gold Coast wasn't a quick opportune rush as they basically only had the academy halves up until a few weeks ago?


If Myler did go to KR I think that would be a good move for him and KR
