My query is his inclusion in the team while his condition is closer detrimental than 'setting the HJ alight'...or any other ground for that matter.
That's why I'm pinning hopes that he's a Trent Barratt at worse.


You can’t be talking about Barrett at Wigan, he was a sensation for us and certainly never looked lazy or overweight. Maybe I’m missing a joke.

If Tyrone Roberts (or any halfback in superleague) has half as good a season as Barrett did for us in 2008/2009 he’ll be going very well.

I think what was meant was that Barrett was good even though he didn’t quite reach his NRL reputation.

So if Roberts can look half as good as what he did in he NRL we’ll have one of he better half-backs in the league.

I meant Trent Barrett alright.
Yes a sensation, well very good for sure....but when he first arrived he was out of shape, and there was plenty unhappy pies for a period.

That's where I make the comparison...I hope Roberts is the Wire version of Barrett.

Can he currently get any poorer.
One or 2 half decent kicks but Rocket Rodwell had more heart that Roberts is showing presently.

shocking Performance by Roberts part from a couple of kicks. Why do people keep mentioning when the pitches get firmer he will come in to his own , when the business end of the season the pitches ain't great, he hasn't shown much at all

What I've seen of him, he's pinching a living.
And the great minds of NRL were gutted that he was coming here ...taking the slash.
Grounds firming up? This joker (because that's what he is) is taking us for a HUGE ride. He could play touch rugby on an athletics running track, and he'd still be taking the pee..Firm grounds my ar53

I can spot a fraud a mile off. Like putting a Woollie's picture of the Mona Lisa, over a Widnesian's fireplace,and expecting people to say "is it the real thing"
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

Like barba and sandow before him give him time. Both barba and sandow looked woeful in their first 5/6 games. I wanted MUCH more from him tonight but lets give him a few more weeks eh? He's an attacking player and for the rest of the team that's clearly a work in progress.

It would be the case for every player to enjoy playing in drier conditions etc, I am sure Danny Richardson who wouldn’t be earning a 5th of what this joker is, will also enjoy the firmer pitches.
