the ban now stands after the french rugby league appealed the appeal as far as i know.


So presumably Catalans will appeal the appeal of the appeal?

I had quite liked Inu, but some of his performances this year have been bordering criminal at times.

Ratchford has too much football in his hands to isolate him at centre. As all of our current halves are organisers/distributors, we need someone at 6 to take on the line and provide a spark. In the absence of anyone coming in I'd put him at 6 and search out a fullback.

I've often thought over the years, the best thing he could do is start watching as much video on Iestyn Harris as he can, he's the closest player in terms to style(stepping off both feet) to ratch. It'd do him the world of good.

I think the Ratch to Centre argument stems from the fact that 1, we don't have any clever, creative, ball-playing centres (Currie's always stood out at Centre for this reason, but is obviously better used elsewhere).

And 2, Ratch's skill have been a little wasted the past couple of seasons because of our turgid attacking play. His main contributions have unfortuately been kick returns. Russell is a better option at FB for that purpose.

BUT, recruit well to sort out the glaring hole in the halves, keep Ratch at FB, and all of a sudden he becomes an immense attacking threat, getting ball in hand in the right areas of the pitch.

Get the organisation and distribution from 6/7 right, and with Ratch, Currie and Westerman all as options as 2nd/3rd receiver, we become a very unpredictable and dangerous attacking team.

Tried that experiment at Catalans away at the start of the season. The rest is history.
