The beast isnt in the saints squad this weekend.

I hope John Kear picks him. Just what we need.

Agree 100%. Alex needs game time and is bound sooner or later to get into the Saints first team squad so we need to play him while we still can.

He should be even better than last year with the preseason at StHelens behind him and full time training. Go Beast!

Bring on " THE BEAST" wish he was playing for us this season. Best forward at the club since Tommy Martin, and Sonny Wakerou a true line breaker.

He is currently 18th man for Saints on Saturday so could still be released for Batley on Sunday

I'm not sure about the injuries, but looking at the squads:

Walmsley is not part of the 19 man squad according to the Saints website, http://www.saintsrlf.../news/page/2714

Flemming isn't in the Cas line up for there game against Warrington either http://www.castigers...cle.php?id=2808,

and these lads aren't in the Huddersfield line up

I reckon we'd look pretty formidable with Walmsley and Flemming in the side, and Lawrence in place of Faal/Esders wouldn't go amiss either. :)

That squad was listed after training Wednesday night, he's in the squad today, i know the Saints photographer and he says he was named in the squad on Thursday night

The 'Lawrence' part of this post is pretty ridiculous.

I'm all in favour of us using the dual registration system properly as we have done in previous years and will hopefully continue to do so with Walmsley and Fleming - who were both announced as our seasonal dual registration signings some time ago.

The concept of taking players like Lawrence and Ukuma T'ai - or whoever isn't in the Giants XVII on any given weekend, is a pretty sickening proposal in terms of the need to maintain our dignity and independence as a club.

Both Ayden Faal and Ryan Esders (he's left the club, by the way) are good players. More importantly, they're OUR players.

Looking forward to seeing Alex back in the Batley team tomorrow. If fit and available he's got to be in the Batley 17 everytime.

It is looking like John Kear is going to have selection headaches all season .Tomorrow John will have to leave out players who have played well in the three warm up games and this is without selecting any Huddersfield players or Fleming.

How does this thing work regarding training. Do the players train with there own club and just turn up match day for Batley if selected by your coach because if that's the case you will never get a settled team to play will you

I think every one at Batley still classes Alex as a Batley player , we will have known he wasnt in the saints squad by wednesday , and I would presume he then trains with batley wed night and friday night for selection , as with all dual reg players

We dual registered him with Saints when the initial deal was made with them. This was before the RFL dictat about only dual registering with one club. The RFL have stated that deals made before this will still stand.

Ah right, knew he was with them, Watching the Saints game tonight, dire performance from their forwards, Alex might just make his debut for them sooner than anticipated

Suprised no one has mentioned this article about Alex http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/rugby-league/21261372
