SORRY should have looked on the official Rovers site, instead of fingering the computer.

Played mostly at centre last season but played a few games on the wing including the Intrsust Super Cup Final where he scored the first try.
Highlights reel

Looks good. There must be a prop with the same name. Sorry I got it wrong.

6 ft  19 st   Irish tight head prop plays for Connacht

That's great work Phantom. YouTube Reels can reel you in but on this occasion there seems to be sufficient material (evidence) to make one reasonably confident this is a good signing. He looks to be strong and fast with a good step. If he is a good guy in the Misi mound mentally then it could be a great signing. Hopefully Ryan will know his personality well enough to have engineered this signing.

he can certainly pass to his right!  Bricoe should score a bag full again.


I demand to have some booze, I want it here and I want it now!

Agree with all that. The no 4 played at hooker in the 2nd half and was tiny but tackled all the big lads who came at him (and they had some big units). I think his name is Ben Blakeston, he went to Pontefract College and has been on Hunslet's books and also played for England Colleges. I don't think he was one of the original signings listed in the reserve squad.

Kiedan Hartley played very well, you do have to say though that he's tiny, I hope he does well though as he seems to have a bit of spirit about him as well as ability.

Jorge Richardson seems fairly composed and has probably been more impressive than Morgan Punchard to date of the two reserve half backs. Jimmy Beckett went quite well and stood up well faced with tackling Jamie Fields and the other heavyweight Parkside forwards. Spencer Darley also went ok but he's another who looks undersized (for his position), maybe a season in the reserves and he can progress like Luke Cooper, who also isn't the biggest for a prop.

I'm not sure any of these lads are really going to crack the 1st team any time soon other than as injury cover but we seem to have assembled a better reserve squad than I had imagined.

 

Yes. An injury update on those names is overdue provided it's not giving too much away.

Hopefully some injured players back. In view of the signings and the trial games how do you see the line up for the bigger games coming along? Would you give the fullback who played in the Hunslet game a run out?

Usually the Club reveal Squad numbers around this time and show the lads in their home shirts on their official website.Maybe due to this not happening we may be due another signing or two before its finalised.

Is Conor Carey any relation to Phil Carey, who unfortunately got injured in an A team game and never played for the first team. We signed him from Canberra Raiders.

Phil Carey played quite a few first team games but didn't show his true form. Whether that was due to injuries or not, I don't know.

Hartley played on the wing in the second half Colin. After the game Paul March said that his versatility could be utilised, and he could become a useful fringe player if he doesn't become a first team regular.

Cheers Steve. Here's a curly one for you to ponder.  If friendly matches don't count towards Bussey's suspension total why can't he play in them? They shouldn't have it both ways.

I have heard Ase Boas won’t be coming over now as he as contracted TB and is unwell but we are set to sign a replacement we are already in talks with someone.

That’s sad news if true, PNG is in the top 10 countries for TB cases I believe. Any ideas who we could be talking to, another overseas player? Need them in quick.

An awful blow for him if true.
