You obviously didn't see Paul wood against the bulldogs tom, you wouldn't have noticed him he was a nonentity, suppose there will be games when he'll step up to the plate but on the evidence of that game I'm sure he's on more money than he's worth and I'm sure carvel will be a similar case nobody really wants him Warrington, hull and cas are proof of that two men living on their reputation
We will see reg time will tell but to single out wood from that friendly performance is a bit OTT IMO as none of them turned up and probably didnt want to be their. Friendlies mean nothing to me you could of won 100-0 and I wouldn't of blinked twice reg. when it matters week in week out I'm sure wood carvell etc will show you otherwise but until the season gets properly underway we don't know anything. One thing I am very confident of though is we will finish at least 4th I'm in no doubt about that and I doubt batley will finish above us so like I say friendlies mean nothing. Look at last season we put wakey and hull right to the sword in friendlies and we didn't win the league by a cantor like most thought we would after those friendlies. I'm not saying wood and carvell are world beaters either but they are in a good team and I'm fairly confident their still too good for championship level but like I say time will tell.
