    I’m just not sure if I can see Konrad Hurrell Performing week in and week out for St Helens. Don’t get me wrong he is a phenomenal carrier of the football but in this late stage of his career he doesn’t offer much else to his game. Defensively he isn’t great and his fitness will be a serious challenge.

    I think agaisnt sides like castleford, London and Hull FC he will be a great threat but coming against wigan or Catalans he could get exploited. 

    I think playing Ben Davies would be a lot safer than Hurrell.

    IM 50/50 when it comes to Hurrell NRLandSL. His attacking play can be really good and cause all sorts of problems for the opposition. It’s his defence that can be a problem for the side, but id sooner have him crawling on the pitch than Davies, i don’t rate him at all.

    I would expect Bennison to be the nailed-on starting left winger. Blake and Percival in the Centres. Ritson and Hurrell are good backups but I don't think they're good enough to be starting for Saints. Bennison is young and he will continue to grow and perform, it would be silly of saints to drop him for a 28 year old who isn't getting any better.

    I just don’t see Bennison as a winger, he scored one cracking try against Wire last season but he hasn’t got the pace or the size. He is brilliant under a high ball, but seeing him Vs Catalans in the PO-SF every time the Dragons kicked to him he’d get the ball, step forward a yard then he’d be smashed back five. Fullback is his best position but we’ll have to wait and see.

  3. I am a Saints fan but when it comes to a British and hopefully one day a French club playing the Aussies i will always shout for one of our clubs. A few of my mates/workmates think i am a sick Judas 😂😂😂 and not a proper Saints fan😂😂😂 because i’ll be cheering on wigan. I give them a few chants of wigan wigan wigan and have told them a win for a SL club could be a big positive for our game.

  4. I went with a mate tonight watching Warrington Town Vs Tamworth. I wouldn’t have gone if it would’ve meant id have to pay. But it was a freebie, along with getting picked up and then dropped off at home. By heck it was ffffffrrrrrrreeeeeezzzzzzzzzing.
    it’s a nice little stadium, it’d be even more enjoyable if it was in summer. Tamworth are the best side i have seen on tv and now live. Scunthorpe are a great side but Tamworth could take the automatic promotion spot. 

  5. I have been looking after the grandkids today which meant i spent the afternoon watching “The Victorian Farm - Ruth Goodman, Alex Langlands, Peter Ginn.

    I never tire of it, it is an excellent watch and the three of them really get stuck in.
    But one of my daughters who has no interest in those type of programmes is positive that Ruth Goodman is the drummer Georgia Hubley from Yo La Tengo.

    Much rage online from people who love to use the word "woke" a lot without ever wondering what it means.


    I voted for KJT without really expecting her to win, but third place is nice.

    I have mates who go on about this woke gang destroying everything, yet i tell them they are the ones whose faces turn red with rage and start bawling if rainbow laces, Big Bird, RNLI, police cars, a female dr who, PG Tips, vegans, a black person in adverts, etc etc are mentioned. I have said to them “I don’t know if you’re anti-woke or are just jealous/envious.

    When some of them mention snowflakes i have started calling them blizzards because moan about everything.

    I would have had The Smiths in my top five but morrissey put me off. 

  9. Woolf only has one game plan and that’s the grind, if it isn’t working he’ll stick with it. Wellens wasn’t happy with Hurrell’s fitness near the end of the season and that’s why he didn’t play. Yet Woolf was saying “he was in great shape” during the buildup to the tests. 
    I haven’t a clue what Wellens will learn from this test series bar more dull, predictable, five drives and a practice kick into the corner.

  10. I am looking forward to the match now, but yesterday i wasn’t. Storm Babet had put me off and i was going to give it a miss, I was wondering if Peasley Cross Bridge was flooded as well. 
    But everything is fine now i am taking four people tomorrow including my Staffordshire granddaughter and her pa. The granddaughter says “she likes Rugby League (i always tell her to say Rugby league 😊). Her Pa plays the other code for some amateur club in Staffordshire, she always tell’s him now “your sport is so boring whilst Rugby League is far better”. She was asked in school yesterday “what was she doing over the weekend”, she said “i am going watching a Rugby League test match on Sunday. It’s far more exciting than the boring 15-a-side one my daddy plays 😂.
