Steve Collins - was a terrific full back, if Zak can be as a good as Steve, then he won't stay here long.

I wouldn't like to denigrate the other players or put undue pressure on him, but last night was like the "Zak Hardaker show". This kid has everything and has the RL world at his feet. Quicker than C Bibb, positionally as good as Collins, excellent tackler, goal kicker and he joins the line in just the right places. As Robin said "is there nowt he can't do". His display last night reminded me of Pearson when he used to dominate "A" team games.

The scoreline was probably skewed by the fact that York only had 15 players and we had about 25, that said Zak was outstanding and looks ready to play in the first team when required.

As for him leaving, it probably will happen at some point in the future but no doubt when he does leave he will lose some of the flair he has once he's moulded into a SL player.

that's true but the scoreline was 44 6 at half time york scoring just before the end of the half where rovers had only used 1 sub and to be fair the subs in the second half disrupted the team and they didn't play as well as the first

so please give the lads some credit for their performance and dont use the opponents failings as an excuse!

Apologies. You are correct and they do deserve a lot of credit but asking most of the 15 players, some with knocks to go the full 80 didn't help their cause. I've said and I will repeat it on here, I think we will win the reserve title this season because every player is fighting for a first team start and unlike a few years ago, if they are good enough they will be given a chance.

If Hardacre and one or two others look good enough for the first team, it may be a good idea to play them against Warrington, because it is a match we wouldn't be expected to win and would therefore have nothing to lose. If he or any of the others play a blinder we will know they are ready and it won't be such a risk throwing them in for future league games.

Failing that, there's only Toulouse on 22nd.April or Keighley on 16th.May where you might possibly risk changing a winning side- all the other games look far too tough!

You do not, or should not, change a settled, winning team unless injuries dictate otherwise.

If DP plays Zak he should name him as A.N.OTHER and make him wear a face mask so if he does have a blinder the SL big boys won't know who he is! :D
