He's one of the reasons why Leigh look a weaker outfit than last season.

But tell me.....how does he go from looking like one of the best props in the comp playing for Leigh and then getting very little gametime for Catalan?

I think he must have misread Catalan as Canada and is now stricken with grief that he's not playing in the Leyhter dream team TWP.

PS this is fun humor so laugh people and don't get all emotional.

He didn’t play a lot for Leigh mate.  Don’t think he played 10 games and seemed to be always on the bench.

I think you judge the quality of the coaching of a sports team by seeing how well the individual assets do, and collectively whether the team performance seems to exceed the collective sum of the individual assets.

I fear that, just now at Les Dracs, the individuals are performing below par (and/or not being given the chance to rectify that) and collectively are spectacularly less effective than, on paper, they ought to be.

That's down to the coaching and the management, I'm afraid.

Maria and Simon are both examples of players who look less effective than when they were elsewhere.

Agreed. Yes you can say the same about Simon. He was tearing it up at Wakefield, but now he's nowhere to be seen.

Another of the departed coaches mistakes, like getting shut of Ridyard.

As usual you're completely wrong, he played 15 games and started 9.

But a totally pointless signing for Catalans as I said at the time.

Why a pointless signing for Cats?

I based my response on RLP, where they had him down as playing 8 regular season.  He played 3 middle 8s.

But, as usual, an aggressive retort and confirmation that you’re never wrong.

Yes, he came back and bit them Harry.  Doing it tough right now at Leigh and the movement of players imo has proved too much. Sure, they’ve had to cut their cloth, but the amount of ins, outs and off contracts is alarming.

The heart has been ripped from the club, we have a disease that has spread like wild fire. Administration and rebuild from C1 is a probability

They are well-stocked at prop, they have 6 other capable senior props and a couple of youngsters who could probably play a dozen games each if required (and are now unlikely to get much if any gametime). Bringing in Maria was unnecessary and a waste of cap space.
