  1. Surely he can see his social media posts are attracting these reactions which in turn are quite clearly drowning the positive news coming out of the club.
  2. He’s still a solid fullback especially defensively but lacks the pace these days to be an effective top level winger. Not being able to retain Aekins with his pace & link play leaves a big hole in that back line.
  3. At fullback maybe but at centre I’ve never really been convinced.
  4. Yeah Watkins was awful in the semi For me the weakness in the team was a lack of threat from dummy half & a lack of impact off the bench to capitalise on the platform Burgess & Hill gave the team in their opening spells.
  5. Featherstone have confirmed the signing of Caleb Aekins.
  6. And 2 backs who have hardly set the world alight at Test level would have added more than a pack containing the 3 Burgess brothers & Walmsley,give over.
  7. A proper Cas shirt that should see it easily outsell the other 2.
  8. No you repeat it because it fits your agenda & giving any credit to one of those “foreign” interlopers doesn’t.
  9. He’ll be 27 by the time he plays a competitive game for Saints so yeah hardly a kid,Young Jack Walker still has a few years to go before he’s just plain Jack Walker by that reckoning.
  10. Your first paragraph is the same old rubbish you’ve trotted out repeatedly. No I’m really not. How do you know the grading process won’t do that.
  11. Oh I agree but Toulouse are a non heartland club so some get all hot & flustered when they are even mentioned.
  12. Surviving 2 yrs without a home game & still gaining promotion,then putting out a reasonably competitive Superleague side despite the huge burden of paying all the other teams travelling expenses maybe.
  13. A real shame,for 3 seasons 2013-15 he was arguably the most dominant frontrower in the game before his injury started to affect his game & even then he was still a useful NRL performer.
  14. But the overall standards wouldn’t drop alarmingly you simply wouldn’t get 1 or 2 teams filling their squads with expensive imports,blowing everyone away & killing the comp. Last time I looked there were several ex Wath Brow players turning out for Haven,Town & others including Leeds,isn’t that what should be happening & if we have a healthy competitive Championship maybe more of those talented amateur players will make the step up.
  15. Or maybe they simply want a comp free of parachute payments & the grossly unfair & uneven central funding arrangements of the last several years.
  16. Croke Park had its Hill 16 terrace replaced with new terracing as part of the stadium rebuild & accommodates 10k supporters.
  17. But with nearly 4 yrs to plan its something easily jumped & is hardly a hammer blow to the move even if some want rid of it like a shot & want those responsible to face the high jump.
  18. Does filling & draining the steeplechase water jump really take 4 weeks ?
  19. Never said it was but apparently the players have received their outstanding contract money now so hopefully preseason can start,although there is some backroom staff still awaiting theirs,resulting in the club losing its physiotherapist staff.
  20. He’s struggling to get the existing squad to start training,never mind getting new additions in.
