Has the team improved absolutely anything since his return? Far from it. The penalties he concedes. The needle to opposition which he never gets the better of, but instead works to our disadvantage. His drinking habits away from the pitch. For me, he is typical of a player who ruins his career through his own actions. I believe the side would improve without him there.

The team has not improved since his return but I'm not sure how much blame for that lies with Ferres.
I'm no great fan but not sure to single him out atm is fair. The majority of the team are under performing and confidence is shot. As others have said his penalties conceded are probably no worse than some other players. No idea how he conducts himself regarding drinking away from the pitch but if it is effecting his game I have total confidence that Sinfield would deal with it.
He has been a poor signing overall but he looks fitter than at any other time in his Leeds career.

Grand Final Team 2017 - Walker; Briscoe, Watkins, Sutcliffe, Hall; Moon, McGuire; Singleton, Parcell, Garbutt, Jones-Buchanan, Ward, Cuthbertson. Replacements: Burrow, Ablett, Ferres, Mullally

Team against Cas last Sunday -Golding; T Briscoe, L Sutcliffe, Moon, Hall; Lilley, Myler; Oledzki, Parcell, Singleton, Ward, Ferres, Cuthbertson. Replacements: Walters, Walker, Mullally, Delaney.

That's 11 of the 17. So does the absence of Watkins, Burrow & McGuire really make the difference. !

Last year's GF was an example of the infinite monkey theorem. There can be no other explanation for your lucky victory.

That would require no wins and HKR winning a game !

Your GF loss last season despite running away with the Hub Cap was an example of the infinite Swagger like Jagger theorem of
"When tha losses thi swagger then you're in bovva cos the winners are always grinners :lol:

I think we'll look back at 2017 as our 'lucky last' GF, as it was a year when big guns like Sts and Wigan hugely underperformed, and Cas imploded at the pointy end of the season. It probably adversely affected this year by falsely inflating how good we were as a team.

OTOH I don't think we're anywhere near as bad as we've been playing. Whilst we can compare our squad unfavourably to the top 4, even with injuries it stacks up pretty well against everyone else player for player. We're not facing the Storm every week (or even Cas), and some of our players need to have a serious look at themselves.

Huddersfield will beat either Wigan or Cas.
"I'm sorry, but I would hope that we would beat Cas with a 1 day turnaround."

The league table does not lie.
The bottom line is, we need a win tomorrow and improve enough to get us back in the top 8
