#2833924 Nixon Returns

Oracle you'd turn down a guy who scored over 30 tries in one season because he had one bad one?

His last 2/3 seasons were poor, just looked disinterested and didn't get involves in games unless the ball was passed/kicked to him directly as he never went looking for it nor scooted from dummy half after a fullback returned a kick to relive pressure off forwards.

Ive never denied he was a good one in the past, just that you cant live off former achievements.

Im happy to be proven wrong, I hope he does have a blinder and sets Craven Park alight again with blistering pace, but until then he will remain, in my opinion, a player who spends more time with hands on hips than with ball in hand

Backwards leap for us (with hands on hips)




#2817308 nico return? ?

Just the sort of encouragement Nico needs eh!!! Not!

But its the truth though, and since this is a public forum people are entitled to their opinions regarding individuals, or are we al meant to follow like sheep and never say anything negative about someone

The last 3 years post injury he lacked confidence, now if a player cant regain it in that type of time frame they never will.

Nico - No thank you. Been a good un in the past, but lost all confidence in his own ability, and spent majority of games walking with hands on hips. Ironic cheers could be heard from the terraces when he caught a high ball, simply cause it meant he had to drive the ball in. Seemed like we were playing with 12 men most of the time, as he never scooted from dummy half.

Sean Ainscough - happy with that, fast, hard running and working, and worth a punt




#2808463 Eddy Pettybourne called up for USA

Posted by Oracle on 16 October 2013 - 01:14 AM

And this time last year we played Rangi Chase and Chris Heighington for England who are in the same boat. Plus players like Widdop and Reed who were born in the Uk but moved overseas when very young - so we're no better.

Oh, and didn't we play Maurie Fassavalu as well for GB a few yrs bk?




#2808435 Asotasi "misses flight"

Posted by Oracle on 15 October 2013 - 10:33 PM

Just shows a total lack of respect for his team mates, coaches and the nation he was chosen to represent after he put his hand up for selection.

The fact that he hasn't even offered an explanation for his absence is disgraceful.




#2794438 Another new signing

Posted by Oracle on 22 September 2013 - 11:33 PM

When they said 2 years for Toal I thought that was a prison sentence ha




#2783173 NEW SIGNINGS ?

Posted by Oracle on 05 September 2013 - 11:43 PM

As these 1 year contracts again?

Surely we need to start locking players contracts down long term rather than this shambles of squad building year in year out




#2781616 Next Season

Posted by Oracle on 04 September 2013 - 12:07 AM

We should start scouring the antipoedian market, pick up a few Fijians like Sheffield did a few yrs back, likes of QLT, Menzie Yere and Taluapapa. Wouldn't cost the earth, but adds a few instant fan favourites to the team due to their hard hitting nature.,

travesty of justice, breaks someones jaw yet walks free. Shows what a farce the British judicial system is.
