    3 to watch in 2019

    Wakefield have added three cracking young players to the full time squad from the Academy, Croft, Gwaze and Adin however I can't see any of them featuring this year. Adin looks the most likely but not yet. Hooley and Wray are the only two who may get a go but that's only if we have a huge injury crisis and I mean huge.

    No it really isn't.

    Who knows but it's not relevant to this article is it.

    Why should they, grow up and join the real world.

    I can’t see anything wrong with it, why does the truth hurt you so much? It’s not the job of TRL to spin for RL. Also it’s not like they haven’t hailed the many successes through the years, get a grip.

    When did he sign for Cas? Obviously you can’t mean average with us having Tupou in the team, keep digging

    Johnstone strolled in for three today without breaking sweat. Still you know best and if Lineham is your man go for it 🙂

    Top class wingers this season

    Don’t be a wally and don’t be over sensitive in fact try growing up. I said in a foot race but that’s not how rl tries are scored. To score as many as Offiah you need to be smart and know how to exploit your team mate, you realise it’s a team game? a lot of the time he made people look slow because he’d already beaten them by being where they wernt. I’ve never seen a winger anticipate play better than Offiah. he was fast but that was not what made him and to say so is a bit insulting, there are plenty of fast runners on this world doesn’t make the great RL wingers does it. Of course how good a team your in makes a difference to argue otherwise is idiocy. iI remember David Jones at Wakefield running Offiah down and stopping a certain try. He was faster than Martin that day but that doesn’t mean he was better, you need to learne context.

    Actually he didn’t have a sounding pace though he was very fast. There were faster wingers before and since and a fair few at the time. in a foot race I’d back most of the wingers in the current list to beat him. Pace alone was not what made him great. What made him great was that he was in by far and away the best team in the UK at the time and he knew how to exploit and that is a very rare skill, he was simply a winner.

    Strange signing by Leeds

    Coming from a fan of SL’s greatest bottlers that’s quite funny,

    Strange signing by Leeds

    I never get this inverted snobbery it’s just as bad as most Leeds fans and their blatant snobbery. With the odd exceptions all players deserve a clean sheet when they move on. A player may fit at one club even when he didn’t at another. Different coach, team mates and surroundings all helps. Also it’s timing, most players only have a few years where they really hit form, if Leeds believe Donaldson is about to then it’s a good signing. I know people will sneer but forwards especially often bloom late. Keegan Hirst at our place, he’s just a back up player and no world beater but when he has played he’s generally done well and certainly improved game on game. I doubt he’s ever played better than he does now. Despite this he is no big earner and the very opposite of a drain on the club - you don’t have to break the bank or have players with huge reputation to fill those places in the last ten of the squad just honest ones. This lad may do even better, at 28 and a fundamentally better player than Hirst he still has time to really make a mark. Wish him all the best against everyone except us.

    2019 predictions

    And why not, it seems only Trinity fans are not allowed to be optimistic whilst eveyone else is free to back their team to the hilt. Personally I'm not for one minute predicting the glory you are (tongue in cheek or not) but it's not impossible anymore just unlikely. So just to help those so inclined to dismis us (yet again), We keep accidentally over achieving (it's no accident) We never improve the squad (we do) (Brough, Kopczak, Reynolds added without loss to a top 6 team is strengthening in my book) We never retain our best players (we do) Nobody wants most of our players (they do and always have but now they can't see last point) We play in a shed of a ground and should be kicked out (well so should Cas and thats a 3rd of your top six clubs gone)
