Confirmed by Donny as leaving for Featherstone Rovers.

There's a clip of him Johnny Hawkins put on facebook. Not as far through as a carrot but bloody hell, this kid is fast.

When our coaching team get their hands on him he's going to score a belly full.

Looking around to find some detail, ah, the joys of google. :lol:

Interesting background, sounds like he could follow Greg's lead in playing all around the backs until finding a settled position.

Thais great robin but forgive me for being a little impatient and I realise we are building for the future but to keep up to everyone else we need those sl signings we've been told about

Certainly not slow in the self-publicity department. Looks like hes got a decent rugby brain.

I prefer these type of signings than some superstar, we have managed to do without SL players comfortably so far, its not as though we are desperate.

Daryl will turn these players into SL players at little cost.

Look at his references Kirkie and then have a look at the clip! Not many at our level that quick!! He'll come at the right price and witht he right coaching could be a right addition to our team. Genuine pace is something we've been short of this year.

Very fast with a stooped running style which makes him able to step off both feet in the blink of an eye and so difficult to tackle and read what he is going to do.

With some coaching and a good pre season this lad could light up the league and be one of those X factor players that rip up the opposition.

19 tries and 51 conversions for him this season, which puts him (just) at the top of our scoring charts. Awesomely quick, and the chasedown of Calderwood (he can be seen crossing the deadball line before turning to chase down) is one of the best things I've seen in a long time (although, the chase of the South Wales winger was just as good, even coming from the opposite wing). Nurtured well, he will rip teams apart.

There is no doubt the kid is fast but to use the clip of him catching Calderwood is misleading as Calderwood was making one of his first matches for some time on returning to semi-pro RL and was knackered after running 30 metres. If you notice the 30 something is like running through treacle and waiting to be tackled and time has caught up with Mark.. To be honest I never noticed the kid again in that match that Town won 45 - 18 after being 18 - nil down!!!!

Good to get another viewpoint Keith. I'm sure DP will have seen something in him though and he will get put through his paces with the coaching team at Fev and develop the skills needed to step up to the Championship. Hope he can run up hill

Looks like we'll get to see him next week at Warrington if we get there early enough to watch the Championship 1 Final. Doncaster winning 20-0 with only minutes to go!
