When you see the reviews Eseh got when playing for Barrow this looks like a great signing. 

His main strength from what I've seen is his offload game. He's tall but not especially bulky at this stage of his career, and defensively he's very much a work in progress. But given our situation with middles at the moment the signing makes a lot of sense.

Could be a player we really need but if we get him playing some good rugby wakey will probably recall him. Rovers desperately need some younger players in the squad.

It's not as if you haven't got a squad that's big enough or good enough to cover the losses. Would you have taken him if he hadn't played well against you? Probably not. So is your recruitment policy we will buy whoever plays well against us whilst disregarding all the other teams to ensure promotion at any cost?

He's the type of forward we need. A young go ahead prop, plus we've two forwards out with injuries.

I'm sure you have enough forwards to cover them though!

Not really with his ability and age. Probably one of the reasons that Leigh were so dominant in the forwards on Saturday.

He's not your player! He plays for the club five miles up the road from us and we have suddenly lost two of our starting middles. I'm not sure what your issue is here.

Where did I say he "was our player" - nowhere! All I asked was do you not have a squad big enough to cover your injuries or do you just go and buy players to cover them? Can you honestly say if he hadn't played well against you that you were already thinking of signing him - probably not! That was basically my point!

Fair does. He did look to play well for your lads. I wouldn't worry too much, if he impresses, he'll probably be back at Trinity before the end of the season. Perhaps it was better for him as well, with less travelling. Anyway, good luck for the rest of the season mate.

So if we'd spotted him playing well in, say, your televised game against York, that would be ok, but because he played well against us, that's somehow not ok for us to be interested in him?  That makes no sense.

He's Wakefield's player so up to them which team he plays for.

Thank you mate! Good luck to you to but I don't believe you will need luck you have the squad to succeed! Good to have a discussion without people falling out and people can see  it from both points of view!

No my point is where you watching him before he played well for us against you or was the decision made on just that game!
