Recommended Posts

Should be fun for Tigers fans.

Told you last night!

Up yours 😁

England RU Coach Eddie Jones : "I spent a bit of time up at Hull and I like the full back there Connor, he's a tough, skilful player"

Jake Connor : "I've never played Union, it doesn't look that hard, you never say never but it looks too boring for me"

I wonder how he'll perform under Radford?   From what we've seen this season though, Cas fans must be happy. They haven't had much to shout about, and now they have a cup final and a top player for next season.

I would have thought that he would have been one that Powell would have wanted Warrington to keep.

Money often talks but I wouldn't have thought he'd be on a really low wage at Warrington and that Castleford would be offering ridiculously more but who knows.

Good signing . Did Wire not want him ?

Not enough to give him a regular starting place which is what he wants. In his interview he said he told Price  he wanted to play centre but they then chose to sign Inglis. At that point Mamo probably realised he was only ever seen as a bit part player at Wire to cover for injuries, so you can fully understand why he doesn't want to stay.

I like Mamo, but I have no issue with him moving on, particularly if he can get a first 13 gig somewhere else. 

His stock has risen recently, but he isn't the best centre around, but he is a useful squad member. 

Good luck to him at Cas.

he was definitely a cheap squad filler, on a 3 yr deal when we signed him in 2019 after mitch brown retired (remember mitch brown playing for us? )

I made that point on the Bullock thread a few weeks ago. Cheap squad fillers become hard to keep if they hit a bit of form and show a bit of potential. What was once a cheap squad filler is worth more to another club than he is to you.

Radford wants him at Cas.

Powell tried to sign him Cas when he went to Wire I believe, so wouldnt have thought he didnt want him in the squad but maybe just prefers King and Matuitia as starting centres.
