Nathan Mason and Liam Johnson both OOC. Johnson played a fair bit at the start of the season but hasn't played much recently for them. Wood has impressed according to my Bulls mates.

Johnson just hasn't developed much physically from what I understand and can see him staying in League 1.

Doubt Mason will be back either but I'd rather have him than Adam Walne. I expect Mason to sign with someone like the Bulls or stay at Leigh.

I think when they go out on a season long loan in the last year of their contract it's as good as goodbye but in Sam Woods case he has a long contract. Could be the end of Dickinson if he goes out on loan though.

Out of the two Johnson really looked dangerous early on and Wood looked a bit of a plodder. Johnson was near enough always good for a try ran great lines but found to be a touch suspect in defence. In Kear's game plan of tackle everything that moves and the scoreline will take care of itself Kear was obviously not happy with his defence. I think there is a real good player in there if someone puts the time and enough game time into him.

On Wood hes thrived on bigger minutes since playing at 13. Maybe the stop start nature of rotating at prop stopped him getting into a game. Been very good since moving to 13 and glad hes signed

I remember how much Tyler stood out in the academy esp in terms of his physicality- much like English. That’s not really manifested in SL for Tyler unlike for English.
Tyler is certainly good enough for lower leagues- who knows

Similar height and weight but English is much more athletic. I just cant see Dickinson making it as a Super League regular.

I think English will have a huge season next year after another pre season.

Giants have lost a good one with Mikey Wood, he’s been immense at 13, does a lot of the little things that count and his defence is superb. Nearly got try of the season as well with his show and go. I reckon another solid year, a little bigger and he will be sought after.
