  1. It's a real shame this isn't on BBC or C4. The game needs FTA to get Kids to watch it. I won't pay for the live stream as my experience with the App has been poor before and I do not expect it to be better.
  2. As a side thought, don't OZ and NSW QLD have a policy of wity the 3/4s picking the best athletes / players and moving them around so to fit them in? I agree with the general idea of playing people out of position isn't the greatest idea, however, a wing at centre or vice versa can work well imo. I would think Hall for example would go well at Centre as well as Wing.
  3. Gigot could suit Union well. Good kicking game, an OK tackler for his size and very good hands. Reasonable under the high ball. Pace is average. Is creative and that's the key skill that means imo he may go well in Union. He can create tries. A inside centre or a full back I would think for Gigot in Union. Yaha with all due respect is a finisher and a good one at that but limited compared to Gigots all round game. Its a shame though as thought he was off to the NRL.
  4. Speaking of tackles, Gagais tackle on Wighton which was a neck shirt collar tackle from behind how do people feel about the shirt collar grab? Does it merit being a legit tackle?
  5. Whatever it was, it was worth it as they have looked much better with him there. I think it was 65k.
  6. Would make it a big event, a great place to travel to, and it's possible to get 60k plus over the two days. Issue will be if the cost of renting the stadium is exorbitant. Otherwise Toulouse and a 25k ideally 40k ground works.
  7. 13 French players in the 17. Hope they give a good showing of themselves.
  8. It's great for French RL to have a player in the NRL. Let's hope he does well out there. Gigot has alot of skill so with the right environment can hopefully go well. If he starts half the games and is regarded as a decent NRL player I would consider that a success in his first season.
  9. I would like to see Gigot go to the NRL. He has the ability to be a solid NRL player. It would be great to see a French player particularly a back, to get some games in the NRL.
  10. Gigot would probably suit Cas well. He would add to them well and Powell would probably get alot out of him. It will come down to wadges as he's likely to want a good salary and Cas correct me if I'm wrong watch the wadges.
  11. If the Dragons are not on Sky next year I will probably cancel my subscription. SL would do well to let Bein have the rights for free as long as they cover the costs of the broadcast. Sky are getting free content, SL get the glamour factor and the only really successful Expansion team in SL history doing well.
  12. As far as I know it's not a done deal. An article said he was weighing up options.
  13. I read somewhere he is weighing up offers and union is in the consideration. Given he plays in France now and the salaries on offer in Union for squad players, he may be in line for a code switch. Either that or will end up at some team in the SL or NRL who feel the upsides outweigh the down. He is a good player just as you said, is prone to loosing it and having flare ups.
  14. Given they signed Barba who had issues, Flanagan could be a option. There are probably other younger assistant coaches who will want to emulate Holbrook who will get the job though I feel. Saints will want to go for a similar appointment. Flanagan might be very good for Leeds though.
  15. Escare has gone to Wakey for the last 5 games on loan. Seems a very good signing for Wakey to bring a bit of dynamism and pace into their attacking options and he will surely be playing for his options for 2020 as Wigan look to have replaced him with French and Lam Dosent seem to rate him. I like Escare and hope he goes well at Wakey and lands a SL deal somewhere for 2020. He's a exciting player to watch.
