IF that's true, he's a player that needs a lot of man-management.

Didn't Noble try to sign him about 10 years ago?

He was way better 10 years ago.

This is the sort of player he has become... put in one big shot to please the fans , then hide away gasping for air for 5 minutes, then go back to the subs bench.

This hasn't actually been confirmed anywhere as far as I can see, so I'd take with a pinch of salt at the moment, but it isn't entirely unbelievable when you consider everything. Can't say I'm over the moon about it, but beggars can't be choosers in both the case of Fakir and the Bulls.

Yep, needs must and he has a lot of work to do but maybe he'll do a decent job.

 

 

(and hopefully he didn't talk to Elliott Whitehead much!)

Ah! I was just doing a quick search of the news sites - didn't think to check the actual club! Fair enough

Decent signing. He could turn out to be an excellent signing if he plays to his potential.

Cheap, instantly available, required position, something to prove, top player at his best.

 

Right now we'll take that.

A good signing in my opinion for the Bulls as long as he stays fit. I must confess i thought the London Broncos would try to sign him.

Jamal has been a great servant to the Catalans but last season the rot set in with sub-standard performances

 

The change will be good for him, good luck big fella

He spenty a long time at Catalans and maybe became stale. You're correct, a change should do him a lot of good.

 

For what it's worth, though he looked 'ring rusty' he put in some good tackles and solid runs on his debut yesterday, all be it against Champ.2 opposition. When he gets fully match fit again he'll fine.
