some of us had spotted his faults before the widnes dentist treatment, he was poop under a high ball before that, indecisive at best.

His faults were seen by Wigan, offloaded to Hull on loan, then he left on a 2 year deal to Gold Coast Titans where he placed precisely 0 games and came home a year early.
His SL career was 2 games for Wigan in 2011, 4 for Hull in 2012, 0 for Gold Coast in 2013 and then a remarkable 95 for us.

When Wigan get all their wingers back, they will still have 4 better than ours.....lets put a cheeky loan bid in.............


To be fair they have 4 exceptionally good wingers, lineham. Is pretty good though, gets too much flak in my opinion.

The sad truth is I bet Wigan have got about 7 wingers in their ranks that are currently better than Matty Russell. We should definitely asking the pies if they are looking to release any wingers I'd be very disappointed if we weren't in the running when one of their 4 best decides that he wants more game time.

Ages since he played a game.

Not played for Wire since he was dropped, & not even getting a gig with Rochdale on a duel registration basis.

Is he still training at Warrington?

Very quiet on the rumours front, which is unusual, for a player that needs to continue his career somewhere.

The comments about him are harsh, it’s like people are talking about a terrible player here.

He had his faults and didn’t really have a position he was a specialist at but I’ve not really seen a better runner of the ball off our own line... ever!

Yes he was excellent at the things he did well. When we were in form under Smith he was fantastic at breaking the line from dummy half. We forget that far too easily.

He wasn't an all-round winger though, which is what is required in our new era. I don't want him to leave thinking we didn't appreciate what he did for us during Smith's better times, so I wish him well wherever he ends up.

The sources on here said ...

1. He had refused to go to Rochdale.
2. He is no longer training with the 1st team.
3. He was to go to Salford with Wire paying some of his salary but this appears to have fallen flat.

I wish him well but we can't give him away currently it seems.
