Indeed. The players are all swanning around in these T-Shirts at Costa in the Golden Square.

Disappointingly, we got the same Cooper back that left us.

That's crafty, wearing dark glasses so we can't tell which player it is.

Disagree. He is much stronger fitter than when he left and he has played a lot of the season with with a broken hand again expectations just because he has gone to nrl doesn't mean he will return a different player. I refuse to believe that he just becomes average after doing well in nrl and was great for England gotta ask the question what is he being asked to do differently

He has stated we need to train harder I would assume that's in comparison to what he has been used to and how we're training now!!

Well. We're bringing back the touchdown club/hanging a few balloons on the wall. Perhaps we'll bring back relegation fears to really capture the wilderspool years.

Last year Warrington were top of the league, and reached the Challenge Cup final and Grand Final.

Mike Cooper was a fairly successful front rower in the NRL.

Now this year, Warrington and Cooper are well below par.

Is it ability or is it confidence?

What about Leeds Rhinos last year, or Chelsea FC last year, were their performances a reflection of ability or confidence?

If I was the size of Mike Cooper I'd be whipping my manhood out and smashing defences aside. I'd be picking up Matty Russsell with one hand and using him as a human shield against would be tacklers.
He was in the NRL where expectations on quality is high. It's no surprise that he's returned and become complacent, he looks like he's running through custard most of the time.
