TRIALIST?

Recommended Posts

Tonight's YEP states Rovers may include a trialist at Hunslet tomorrow called Nathan Chapel :blink: ...anyone any wiser 'cos i arn't!!!!

He plays in our reserves. Very good and deserves a chance.

A lad called Nathan Chappell was man of the match for Huddersfield Underbank Rangers in last year's RL Conference Grand final.

See here.

A 20 year old 2nd rower.

I assume it's the same lad.

He played very well and deserved his starting place; Caught Barnett in full flight for the posts; Scored a try and gifted one to Saxton with an excellent pass out of the tackle;

Yep competition in the centres now. Thought he looked as though he had been playing all season. Good strong runs and quick.

Should have attacked more on his centre in the second half like we did in the first we would have scored more against Pryce.

I have to agree with all the comments about this lad. He showed pace, awareness and a good defensive game. Great performance all round

He did ok! I'm not getting all excited yet - he's not another Paul Newlove.

I don't want to burden the lad with an over expectant fan. He played as well as he could have done today and showed good touches in attack and defence. See how he goes eh?

Got to agree with all this, like Robin said lets not burden him with our expectaitions but credit and encouragement where its due, Well played.

Ps Robin saw you at last weeks game and wondered where the body painters were? Any way they did a great job of painting the rovers shirt on you :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

It's certainly a little "snug" is the fit of that shirt!! :biggrin:

I think Martin Overton's shirt is the same size as mine - and it only just fits him!!!!!
