Richardson signs for Cas

Recommended Posts

Probably the worst kept secret for weeks, Danny Richardson signed for Cas. Was told by someone at Saints that the initial fee is £65K with add-on's based on appearances and future international call-ups that could take it up to £90K.

Good move for both parties. He hasn't really kicked on and improved the areas of his game that seriously need work (game management & defence) and he's a waste of cap space just being used as a back-up for Fages & Lomax.

To all remaining passengers, thank you for your continued custom and contributions to my pension fund

Kind Regards - YOUR PRESIDENT !

Think he showed signs of improvement in the games he did play in 2019 from some of the weaknesses in his game in 2018 but it was hard not being back Fages when he returned to fitness. 

Richardson provided some great memories in his short-time at Saints, Warrington at Home and Leeds away spring to mind, and I think some are doing him a disservice.

I hope we don’t live to regret this move.

Be interesting to see if he does 'kick on' at Cas why Saints were unable to harness the talent he undoubtedly has. No doubt this is a bit of a risk for Cas having such a young halves pairing but with senior figures like Watts, McShane and Shenton about you'd hope that wasn't a big problem.

Well he won't be short of coaches to guide him in half back play, it looks to have helped Trueman to develop.

He would been better advised to have signed for Salford, evidence suggests he would have kicked on there.  He may have had to accept less money, but in the medium to long term he would have gained, IMO.

What evidence?

Good move for him . Lot of potential in this lad . Maybe plateaued out a bit but Cas looks a good place to try and kick on again.

But at least these two will be able to share hair and make-up ideas.

Good move for the lad,hopefully he can kick on and fulfill his potential,he's still young and it will be intriguing to see how his and Truemans partnership develops.
