I hope so. Like others I was disappointed with Adam's contribution at times but injuries didn't help. He has something  to prove to Knights fans if not himself. Playing behind our new big lads his ball handling could be  invaluable. Just a thought.

i know what you,re thinking but i feel marcus stock offers more in that department

Matongo and Pauli Pauli - we’re certainly adding some size!! Have we ever had a player as large as Pauli Pauli? I wonder how the likes of Trevor Hooper would look like next to him? Sorry, but it’s a “no” to me on Cuthbertson. His knee/knees are shot and he should call it a day and free up a squad number. Only way I’d change this view is if he’s working for the club in a different capacity and his registration costs very little then I’d keep him in case of emergencies. Whose next Fordy? Taumalolo and Fisher-Harris would do nicely.

Big George Ballantyne in our 1980/81 squad. He was on loan to us the back part of that season from Cas.He was massive and only came on the last quarter of every game as a prop.He scored a few tries for us by just walking and belly flopping over the try line from a couple of metres out,nobody got in his way.His shirt never fitted him and finished at his belly button.

I saw him a few seasons later playing for Bramley against us and he had lost loads of weight.

We've had a few big lads over the years, Mal Dixon 19 stone, Colin Forsyth the same, Annie Morgan another at 19 stone and Ron Hill about the same.

Chicken George was his nick name.......for the life of me I can't remember why.

He'll do for me, especially with the 2 new big lads along side. 

Agree with that, but I'm not yet convinced re the captaincy, especially on the field. But in interview Chris says he learned a lot last season about his new role so we'll see. Captain fantastic was a hard act to follow.

I wonder if it's a winger this time.Its time for a few more backs to be added to the squad. Maybe another winger. I still think we are short of players in that area

well looks like ben blackmore not getting new contract at FEV He's a class act very good championship winger
