Very good signing, our pack is looking impressive. He looked good playing against us last year

Could be a gem of a signing this one . You've got to be talented to get into the Wigan youth setup , and in that playoff game he just stood out head n shoulders. Watched the DVD a couple of times and he reinforced that impression . Big and rawboned with plenty of aggression , real big scope for development .

Thacks , Dowes , Acton , Coward now then . Maybe want one more young prop to complete that set. Props are gonna really bare the brunt at the sharp end next year . Walne would still be nice.

Shacks can also play at prop if required. Looking good in the front row for next season.

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 .

Oh and cited for biting ...an eventful game but great to have that aggression and fearlessness to go with raw talent . Top acquisition this . When he was released by Wigan someone there said he would be picked up by a SL club . I see Cas enquired about a loan last year

agreed. Forwards win games by building a platform for the backs to work off, and we certainly need a half to create things off the back of our pack. Someone who will cause the opposition problems. We need a few more signings yet and i have every faith in our BOD to deliver.

With all these signing we are all forgetting about lupton if we can get him fit will be a great addition to what is looking a very strong pack.

yeh, theres two types of 13 isnt there ( discounting the third prop fad ) . The dynamic worker , doing

the yards and making the tackles , like Annakin. And theres the ball player ,a third pivot ,like Lupton.

Having that third playmaker is very handy. Id say Dave is a bit of both. Pretty important position 13,

has a real and central bearing on the game and the style you play. 1,6,7,9 and 13 in that middle

third of the pitch are your creative force , and we are strong there in three of those so far.

Fill in 6 and 7 and we have a potent and complete attacking edge to take full advantage of our great packs

go forward. Next year lets get full value if our packs dominant

Another excellent signing, if he can keep himself under control. Its also a little bonus that the loons down the road are getting more and more upset with every signing we make.

Do you think there is such a thing anymore in Pro RL? Other than Sinfield (when he plays 13) can you name anybody who actually plays the old-fashioned loose forward role like for those who can remember Kelly Shelford, Dave Heron, Harry Pinner, Steve Maguire?
