  1. Well, without being too critical, I think it’s a case of Peet telling Wane ”The circle is now complete, when I left you I was just a learner, Now I am the Master”
  2. Do they have WF (Wakefield) Post Ckdes?
  3. Watching Patton develop from a distance I feel he’s been let down by his Coaches at Warrington. When he broke into the 1st Team at Wire he wasn’t far off for a kid his age, he needed to learn how to take control of a game and to dictate to his team. That’s not always natural for a kid coming into a team of established senior players, some of them internationals. IMO, he needed help from his coaches and time in the team to settle and establish himself. Instead he was left out for bigger names and sometimes I thought it seemed unjust. I think he’s one who’s been let down and he’s never fulfilled his potential but maybe it’s not too late for him. Good signing for Bradford, John Kear knows how to get the best from his pivots so it could be a great move for Patton.
  4. The blokes got no fat on him so don’t know what you’re looking at! Take a closer look, he’s a big lad but he’s fitter than I’ve ever seen him at the moment
  5. Jordan Abdul & Mikey Lewis we’re both outstanding and are possibly the best England qualified half back pairing in the League. Williams was anonymous throughout the game, Ratchford had a mare and Widdop was marked out of the match.
  6. We’ve got one for sure but I think the Australians have disbanded theirs
  7. Tom Burgess has really kicked on in the absence of his brothers. He’s now playing at a level that I believe is above that of which George was playing when he was at his best. In Walmsley and Tom Burgess we have two of the best Prop forwards in the world complimented further by Thompson and quite possibly joined by Matty Lees or Mikalai Oledski. Thats not a bad front row rotation for an international team!
  8. I think he’s a great signing for Huddersfield, he brings exactly what the Giants have been missing all season. I don’t understand this decision from Powell but then I don’t understand his decision on Minikin or Matautia either. Both are primarily centres and Warrington aren’t bad off in that department even with the departure of Mamo. Back to Chris Hill, my own club Wakefield keeps bemoaning the lack of available Prop Forwards yet it seems they weren’t even in the mix for Hill which is very disappointing
  9. So you’re advocating a split between the two! Why do the current top clubs get to control the major decisions, they’re there due to a quirk of fate and timing! Had SKY pumped their money in a few decades earlier many of today’s top clubs would have been left out in favour of Swinton, Halifax & Featherstone!
  10. Not sure I agree with you on that! Certainly there are sell outs and there are those that struggle but that’s the nature of events because they’re subject to many exterior influences. What I do see on Matchrooms calendar are multiple sports, some of them unfashionable, that have hours of TV broadcasting and huge prize fund pots.
  11. I’d certainly consider Eddie Hearn and his team in some capacity but absolutely not full control and ownership of the sport. Like him or loathe him he is very successful at what he does and makes money for the sports he’s involved in. One thing that impresses me about Eddie Hearn is his relationships with the sportsmen he has in the Matchroom stable and equally their regard for him. I’m not talking about the Joshua’s, Whytes and Benns, Im talking about the young up and coming sports men and women. He knows them, their backgrounds, family, Coaches, trainers, their ambitions their strengths/weaknesses and he also knows where they’re going, who their competition is. In short he actually goes beyond being a thorough professional businessman and takes the time to know everything he needs to in order to create success. Id give him the task of creating a new event for the sport along similar lines to crickets The100. That may be a 9s or some other shortened version of the game that’s even more dynamic than the actual sport of Rugby League itself. If he does that and creates success then allow him more latitude by giving him control of Magic Weekend or maybe task him with finding a way to make The Championship more relevant to the wider public and maybe TV. Im not in the Rugby League is dead brigade but the direction of travel is alarming and it’s been heading in the wrong direction since around 2005. something needs to change
  12. I said he deserves his chance, not just because he’s been there for a long time but because of his record of achievements doing the various roles he’s been employed in.
  13. Sean Wane will take over as Director of Rugby and Matty Peet will become the Head Coach. Matty has served a long and comprehensive apprenticeship at the club and deserves his chance.
  14. I think it’s only fair to tell you that Tom is a friend of mine, I’ve known him since he was 14 years old. I’m not suggesting that Tom announces his retirement tomorrow morning, I merely said that I fear he’s on a similar track to Stevie Ward. I hope to God not but I’d rather see him healthy than suffer problems throughout the rest of his life due to pressing on with his Rugby career. I think he’s one serious concussion away from considering this himself. Im sorry if you think concern for someone I’ve known for over 10 years is ‘virtue signaling, whatever that actually is
  15. There’s no doubting he hit the ground hard, the point is it’s ANOTHER concussion for a player who’s just had a major issue recovering from the same injury. How many do you want him to have before you start thinking of him and his health and not the tries he scores!
  16. I’m beginning to think that Tom Johnstone is on a similar path as Stevie Ward. It might be time for him to consider what’s best for himself in later life.
  17. 3 wins from 4 games for Willie Poching with exactly the same players who couldn’t buy a win previously Well done Willie
  18. Fifita Great offload To Arundel for a try to wrap it up, kick to come Wakefield Trinity 18 Vs 13 Leeds Rhinos
