People tend to talk about Hock's "baggage" as though he's some sort of malign off-the-field influence...I really don't think that's the case, at least not these days. Everythng that's come out of Fev has indicated that he has caused no problems off the field and it's noticeable that when he reached his settlement with the club, players were queueing up on Twitter to speak highly of him.


On the field is a different matter and it boils down to weighing up his contribution versus the likelihood of suspensions, as after barely conceding a penalty in his first dozen games for Fev he again fell foul of the disciplinary committee too often. His actual play, once he got fully match fit (having had no pre-season due to injury), was often of a standout level in the Championship.

He's clearly still capable of contributing at SL level imo, it's just a case of whether his on-field discplinary issues make him worth the risk, given that previous offences are very much taken into account when bans are handed out.


heard and Interview with JJb once and he was asked about players who he had a low opinion and he said Hock was one, but then he got to know him a bit and realized he was not the person he thought he was and his preformed opinion of him where way of the mark. yes Hock has disciplinary issues and one well publicized drug ban, but apart from being overly aggressive and even that 30 years ago would be fairly average for a rugby league forward. he has not done too much wrong. still could be a decent squad filler at Super league level.

It all depends on how much he commands. Worth a place in quite a few team's 17.

The only reason I can see any Super League club looking to sign Gareth Hock is that they are completely desperate. Perhaps the dIfference in salary cap between the NRL and Super League is starting to take its toll and quality players becoming even harder to sign, but surely a washed up 35 year old Gareth Hock isn’t the answer.

he'd be a better replacement for Ferris

Most of the bottom half of the table. I would say he is better than some of the mediocrity Hull & Leeds have fielded in the back row in the second half of the season. Possibly Huddersfield as well.
