Jamie Thackray

Recommended Posts

posted with all the subtlety of a friday night round cas, suggy!

But we've both said "born into the body currently used by tommy H, we'd both be playing SL. Oh to have that ability eh?

Tommy has the ability, skill and class to have been the best player in our league every season, regardless of whether he played in the pack or in the centre. Sadly, we didn't see anywhere near enough of that class and i wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't the main reason he wasn't retained. It's easy for him to moan about how he was treated, as by and large the club rightly don't wash mucky linen in public, and as such won't publish the clubs take on the issue.

If he had played as he can, throughout the season-, and had bought into the "team ethic" more throughout the season, he would have almost certainly have been retained. The reason he wasn't is largely down to him in my opinion.

Every player leaving a club is likely to give it that big extra against a club he's left, as i expect jim will do against widnes. Tommy will be no different when/if he gets a club.

It's always happened. It always will.

For what it's worth I was upset to see Tommy go. As for the reason for no contract offer there was "no more room for forwards" then if that's true it's a weak excuse as far as Haughey goes IMO. For large chunks of the season when forced to he played in the threequarters and was the only one who could make a break at times. Not bad for a forward, a true utility player that will be an asset in any team :D . Did he sign for Keighley in the end and did Pricey go to Barrow also??

At his best Tommy was immense and to be honest should slaughter teams at this level. Why he dropped so far below this high standard on too many occasions is one of the great unknowns. This was not just last season but the previous season as well so it is nothing to do with the coaching system. If Tommy can find a way of producing a consistent performance then watch out.

Lets not forget, huzo was still at the club and was there at least a month when Tommy got released

I assume the contract offer to huzo was made before the end of the season and Daryl assumed he would want to stay and accept it.

When he didnt im sure everyone all round was suprised.

When he left, it freed up a forward space so i dont buy into the arguement that Tommy will be 'hard done to' if we get another forward because it appears Daryl already had the forwards he wanted in place and didnt expect Huzo to leave

I agree, theres more to his release than we know about. Daryl had his reasons and thats ok by me.

Its been said many times about Tommy, like a school report....."has the ability but doesn't use it" (well, like mine anyway :P )

If he needs a club, heard Celtic Nomads are still a bit short. :rolleyes:
