Eorl Crabtree

Recommended Posts


One of the most underrated players of the last decade, a high quality prop who carried the Giants at times, the player who people say should do more but then is very noticeable when he isn't playing just what he brings to a team

A legend to the Claret and Gold faithful for his entire career, I wish him all the best

Agree with all of that. Will miss him. I trust he'll continue as a pundit.

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

A very good player in his prime, and an engaging pundit too.

He's moving to role on the commercial and marketing side of the club.

He thought playing prop was a challenge - wait until he realises the reality of trying to attract people to watch the Giants.

 

He'll soon be begging for his old job back.

Would it be possible for League Express to print these posts in the next edition as a tribute to Eorl?

Very very nice guy, he was a good lad in his teens head screwed on and when he got older he was fiercely loyal to the Giants when he could have moved on for bigger bucks

 

Retirement comes for everyone, I would have liked to see him one last time in a winning Giants team

 

Thank you!

A legend in Huddersfield yes but one of the most underrated players, take your claret and gold glasses off mate you are making yourself sound silly. A plodder at best.

Aye Crabtree was always very good against the Aussies, they couldn't seem to handle his size. I recall Cameron Smith trying to tackle him 1 on 1 a few years back and ended up on his backside.

I think Crabtree was a very good prop. He was pretty unconventional compared to most prop forwards. Usually bigger forwards break more tackles but are dodgier in defence, drop the ball more often and aren't particularly quick but he had the size of big forward but had the qualities of a work horse forward ie Graham and Hill. I think because he was similar in size to forwards like George Burgess for example they were expecting similar amounts of tackle busts ect but that wasn't really his game.

I wouldn't expect anything else from you, only one person here sounding silly and you know who you are. There's always one has to spoil it isn't there.
