Sorry. Done and dusted to Catalans next year.

At least he is staying in the game.

I’d rather he was staying at Cas.

Fair point but previously he was going to the dark side, that would be a worst case for the game.

Whitley and McMeeken on the edges is good. Catalans should be a force in Super League but have always lacked discipline. 

I think its nothing to do with the travel as people think

I think its seem as a jolly by the players who go there 

Only way to get the passion going is if they have a French minimum quota... Say 10 of the 17 each game minimum

They might lose more initially but the investment would be worth it

If they want to do that, they’d have to be happy to accept the possibility of relegation. They’re not, so they don’t have so many French players.

He’s lost his way a little over the last season or so, albeit he’s been riddled by injury. Hopefully the move will do him good. Glad he’s not going to the dark side though, he’d have been wasted there

Doesn’t quite do his massive frame justice, IMO. Not of late, anyway.

No idea what his stats are but to my eye he doesn’t make as many post-contact metres as I feel he ought to.

How many second rows do we need, Garcia, Tomkins, Whitley,  Julien, goudemand, baitieri, seguier, a couple of young up and coming French players in the reserves (chan counts as French for me) and now mc meeken.

Feel like theres still more to come from McMeeken. Hope the change of scenery helps him take his game up a level.

Great signing by Catalan 

I agree, hullfan, it would be a good signing.  What is your source for the information?

I just get told things by people who are also in the know mate. Got quite a lot of connections in this game and also in the media. Once I retired I kept alot of friends within the game!

The Hull Daily Mail?

It was on their website this morning a few hours before this thread was started.

A few years ago he was one of the best 2nd rowers in SL, but the last year or so his form has really dipped and gone from someone who looked like an international to an average club man.

Maybe a change of scenery will help him regain his form as he's got the basic talent to push for an international call up.
