  1. Luke Gales hair

    One question I have is what happens when the rest of Luke’s hair disappears around his crown due to male pattern baldness? I think he needs to take a vow of silence and brush up on his handwriting and beer/ wine making skills ASAP. Anyways, I’ve been there, got the T shirt and now sport a rather suave No. 1. I’ve also got a cracking collection of woolly hats for this time of year with pride of place going to my Giants hat. Happy New Year Luke and I hope 2018 is a confident and prosperous year for you (apart from when Tigers play Giants).
  2. Yeah, there's some right mingers in that Fartown team.
  3. Keeping a low profile. Coming in under the radar and all that.
  4. I thought that too. Pity, as it would have been the try of the match. Mamo is a breath of fresh air just for his enthusiasm. Rick Stone has already said his anticipation / quick thinking is exceptional. He has been in the right place at the right time a few times this season and at 22 can only get better. He spends plenty of time after games with the fans taking photos, signing autographs etc. so is already a fans favourite.
  5. I spoke to a Wire fan after the game and he's convinced there are plenty of problems behind the scenes and he's already looking forward to going to Toronto, Toulouse and London (I'm presuming he thinks Hull KR will replace Wire in SL). It was one of the worst Wire performances I've seen in a long time (not taking too much away from the Giants). Confidence seems to be shot to pieces.
  6. Indeed. Some very odd results this season. Giants need to win next 3 v Wire, Catalans and Saints if they want to avoid middle 8's. Hope Jordan Turner gives us a bit of a boost and Danny behaves himself.
  7. Another factor may have been that moving it gave the opportunity to rip the pitch up and relay it a bit earlier than expected giving it chance to recover before the Wie game. Not saying that's a good reason but it may have had an influence in the decision to move the game.
  8. I loved that kick where the Leeds fans started cheering as it looked like the ball was going dead. Suddenly the ball seemed to have a mind of it's own, did a lovely pirouette and gently stopped 6 inches from the line. The only downside was that Jack Walker did well avoiding a couple of our players to get the ball back to the 20 metre line.
  9. Although we have our first choice fullback and whole back row out we have still named a very decent squad. Should be a good competitive game and I'm hoping the Giants want to put last season's Middle 8 game to bed. They've spoken plenty of times about not wanting to be in that situation again so we'll have to see if they can back up the talk.
  10. Back in squad are McGillvary, Cudjoe, Gaskell, Murphy and Ta'ai. Mamo a bit behind as his ankle is taking longer to loosen up than anticipated. Current injured are Mamo, Symonds, Lawrence, Ferguson, Simpson and O'Brien.
  11. Michael Lawrence needs knee microfracture surgery. His knee is currently infected therefore that needs sorting before he can have the op. Tom Symonds is 3-4 weeks away and Jerry is in the Leigh squad. He had a quad tear that obviously wasn't as bad as first feared.
