Wow - what an anti climax - is this your major signing?

Youll be lucky to get 10 minutes a half out of him, he was playing when GM had a paper round.

A good couple of days for you guys with Morton and Aizue signing.

2 players who could have a big impact next season.

Sounds like GM has a plan in place.

well under wozzer, we only ever got ten minutes a half out of georgie boy - he could do a lot of damage in twenty minutes though. ;) We also only used to get twenty minutes out of big jim walker and he could do a lot of ...... OK - bad example. :rolleyes:

Decent signing, I guess. He's experienced and doesn't take a backward step. However, a wrecking-ball? These days, no.

A fair assessment. Depends what is expected of him next season. If he's to be used as a starting front line prop, it won't work these days. As an impact player, he takes some looking after for the ten mins a half that he's effective. During that 20 mins he could create some opportunities but these days thats's what he's limited to.Of all the 'experienced' signings that could be made, I'd suggest this is one of the better ones.

Hope you have better luck than you had with nick Fozzard in the ageing prop star signing of the off season.

He may be a wrecking ball but I will never forget Dane Morgan knocking him on his backside when he played for hull kr.

Good signing for Rams. Wasn't he in talks with Batley too? Apparently he wanted a crazy package and Batley said no.

Poor Rhino. They aint happy with him haha!

I now applaud the signing seeing them lot whinge. They really do not back whoever is in charge of them. It seems that Sam Barlow is on his way to Salford too in swap + cash with Wayne Godwin coming the other way.

Jamie Rooney, perhaps?

Think Rooney has signed to have another year at Whithaven.

Aizue is a great signing for us,he will be used as a impact player,a bit like when we had that great rams player Big Frank Watene,when he came on things happen.He might be coming to the end of his career,but he will still do a job.Also helping bring the younger lads to gain more experience.

Still need 2 new centres, 3 more props, a halfback, a good loose, amonst afew other utility players.

That would take the suad to around the 25 players Glenn wants.

But things are looking good...

Fielden hasn't been offered a new contract at Wigan..............we can dream!

Personally I think we need two new centre's, as I don't think Crosgrove is good enough.

We still need a new half-back to partner Coleman, and a good few forwards.

Glenn has recruited well so far and I am sure he will get a great squad together. Can't wait for the new season! Batley beware!!!

Them lot and they.

You mean the 3 or 4 that every club has that moan about everything.

Nowt like judging everyone the same is there.

Having a whinge, isn't that what you are doing.

Not another Fax hater for some sad reason are you.

Back on topic Aizue will be a good signing for the Rams, he does not like to loose and does not just show up to pass time and won't be hiding that's for sure.

I'm not exactly excited by this signing but hope that I'm proven completely wrong.

Sadly we don't have the best record in signing players at the tail end of their careers - let's hope this is different.

Guys he is emense in going forward. Towards the end of the season he was doing 15-20 minutes in the first half and 10-15 second half, trust me, gutted he has gone but what can u do, they can't go on for ever. The only down side Is running out of the line to put on big hits and leaving a gap.
