Good from our perspective as he is a quality player who can play a number of positions.

Im surprised he has signed for that long though, wonder if he has been given reassurances that he will have a set position for the next couple of years

We have all seen him have good games at 6, centre, fullback, and even back row, but at 22 he and Mac need to decide on a more permanent position and improve the finer points of his game in whatever position he lands on

Good for him - he seems to have worked hard to establish himself and deserves the opportunity
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

To be honest, I've never rated Sutcliffe until he played a few games at centre and I think that's his best position, I agree that his versatility is a bonus and may be the next Carl Ablett.

That's been known for ages, Sutcliffe confirmed he wasn't ooc until next year months ago but either people didn't see that or just ignored it.

As for him seeing his future at centre and signing for that long I'm guessing he's under the impression Moon will be staying at HB.

From Sutcliffe

“Brian McDermott and I have been talking over the last few months and the more I spoke to him, the more I wanted to commit myself to this club."

Nice to see McDermott take time off from bullying, falling out with or ignoring players to help us sign up ANOTHER of our young players to a long term deal.

So that sorts out the backs for 2018 and at "no extra cost" 1=Walker/ Golding - Wings=Hall/Briscoe - centres= Watkins/Sutcliffe - Halves=Moon/Myler. Masterstroke by Hetherington.

You are probably right there, although there is still the rumour of Moon going home floating about.

Great news. He's a talented player who could have a big future if he knuckles down and is given the right coaching.

Sutcliffe wont have signed an extension on the same money and its very unlikely Myler will be on less than either McGuire/Burrow/Sutcliffe

Good, he looks to have the makings of a quality SL centre. The backs seem fine as has been the case generally for a good few years now. Problem has been getting the best out of them, which has been difficult at times with our game style.

We still lack a game managing half and a big off loading back row minimum for me, hopefully something will come through but seems unlikely at this stage.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!
