Come on you Saints

Loose Forward

What would be your ideal 13 in the modern game? A ball handler, someone who can make the hard yards, or someone who can run out wide with the centres?

Depends on the style of play

In Sinfields case Leeds is built around him and his style

Certainly a dynamic runner who can pass reasonably well and has a kicking dimension

Ball playing forward, end of...... Not many at present, lockers, sinny and westerman...... Wires badly need one for me, but that's another topic.

I'm glad westerman has started the season well, he's a good youngster IMHO

Best 13 at the min is Paul gallen

A wonderful player, can pay many different positions, one of my favourites in the last decade

He's no youngster. After six years in the game should be delivering on a regular basis rather than being talked of as a youngster with future potential......

To be fair, if he played for a top club he'd be elevated in stature. 23 is still young and 12 years to continue on playing

Again joes had a few injuries and we've not seen the best of him.

Sinfield has been a stand off for the last two seasons. Loose forwards can be an extra half back or an extra prop depending on what the coach wants I guess. Best loose forwards I saw at oldham were Bob Lidner and Mike kuiti who were very different players. Lidner was probably the best player I've seen play for Oldham, seemed unstopable at times.

Happy with Lockers to be honest, strong in defence, runs hard with good lines, offloads and can pick a pass.

Quite. Westerman still has potential.

Perhaps it's a criticism of the general british mentality rather than of Joe personally the way we regard players of his age & experience as 'youngsters'.

Agree, he may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he's proved he's got ability, maybe a bigger club would be better for him?

Question - could Liam Farrell be the next superstar loose forward, I like this lad, 22 and has bags of potential.

Great player, good pace, great hands and scores tries...and yeah, creates them.

Thoughts ....

......Not sure.......think he's more of a second row....I always see a LF as a slightly heavier/taller SO

I don't know who that is... :unsure:

Looks like Knocker. One of dozens of lads from Fev/Cas nicked by the cod heads.
