I don't think we can make a real judgement on Newton, because of the little we seen of him. Although no doubt he is a better player than matty according to the idiots down the road. I always thought he was an out and out hooker, so I don't see petersen or annakin being the player we have for his position. Also on another note I would prefer to see Karl at loose forward rather than at hooker, and get a proper experienced player in that position to back matty up.

yeah difficult to judge on 3 games but i think we made the right decision.we have other more important targets

The coaches can't have been too impressed as we never extended his loan last year and aren't interested this, and they've seen us right so far.

Agreed on Olstrum. Of course he can cover there, but in my opinion only he' s not an all round hooker. He's a top ball carrier,

but you also want a hooker naturally to have vision of play around him , control the speed of the game and have a great

passing game . Karls a fine talent playing his own game, let him do his direct and dynamic thing running the ball and using his strength and footwork , and lets

look for a second natural hooker whos like Matty , so when he' s spelled we have continuity and can play

at the same tempo and in the same style. Pity Ben Fisher jacked in.

Yes indeed but I like Shacks out wider using his pace and skills . These two signings have somewhat overshadowed Paul Jackson ! I see Acton is from the outskirts of High Wycombe , and got a big write up in the Buckinghamshire Examiner when Wigan took him !! He played with the likes of Jack Hughes and Tom Spencer .

Agreed, I have fond memories of his dis-allowed try at the rec last year when he out paced their full-back, whoever he was, from near on the half-way line :D

Think it was Jonny Youds then . Might be mistaken but I think he went back to the amateurs and played against Egremont .
