Recommended Posts

Chase and Henson what on earth could go wrong?

What's Willie Mason up to these days? There could be a welcome for him in the hillsides?

What a signing, he can’t come cheap though, does anyone know if they have someone new putting few quid in? Good luck to them regardless.

A career that just keeps going from strength to strength. 

Joking aside, such a waste. That season or two with Cas he was untouchable.

It's a truly incredible decline. In 2011 he won the Man of Steel, 10 years later he will be playing in front of maybe about 100 people and getting battered by semi pro players putting at least 60 points a game on his team.

If anything else, him and Henson will definitely get people's attention. They might even put a few more bums on seats come next season. Hopefully.

Two big names to get people talking about RL in Wales and the West Wales Raiders in particular. If it increases their profile and gets a few more through the turnstiles then it can only be seen as a positive. They might even help them win a game or two and maybe attract one or two more signings

There might be a place for Shaun O'Loughlin there too.

He wouldn’t get in

Don't see what's wrong with what I said, just stated some facts.

On the last game and a half your right, only managed one head tackle definitely lost it.

Brilliant stuff by the Welsh, it's a great story for their half backs if nothing else. I wish nothing but good on our sheep loving brethren, had some belting away days with them.

His drop off in form was staggering.

Played at Fev in the cup in 2012. Breaking Tangi Ropati's jaw was his only significant contribution to that game. He was bloody awful and the slide continued.

A character with flaws.

Sorry JM, there’s no room for positivity like that on this forum.

That’s the spirit. 

Do you not think it would have happened by now if it was ever going to happen. Just been realistic
