I can actually totally see the function in bringing in a solid defensive winger who may still have a year of ok attack and can score goals.  He can also coach the youngsters.  It's horses for courses and there will be matches where he could be of a lot of use.  Provided the wages are right.

Surely Catalan can do better than signing a player who is going to be 34 before the season starts. I watched Richards for many years at Wigan and have some great memories of him playing but I just don't see how signing a 34 year old winger for a season is going to help Catalan. Surely they should be looking for younger French players!!

Yes but he and his family fancy a year in the south of France so you have to factor that in...

...as bad as you've seen????you watched much league????.....also where would you put the sneyd incident against this ????

 The reason I think it is so bad is that there doesn't seem to be an overspill of emotion which I think accounts for a lot of foul play.  It looks very calculated, like an attempt to cause serious ligament or bone damage and could clearly leave Thompson unable to play again or less of a player than he was if he comes back.  So for me it's right up there.


The Sneyd one was bad too - I think he was lucky McGuire kept rolling and so limiting the force Sneyd could apply.  The Thompson one looked worse to me.
