jamie foster to bradford surprising - expected hull to want him and maybe even not to have been finished at saints yet?


Not that surprising, he was their best player when they beat Saints last year...

Bit about Hock at the bottom, and also links us with Willie Tonga

esi tonga is willies younger brother
played 3 games for the eels in 2012
he is 24, 6 ft 2, nearly 15 stones and plays 2nd row or centre
sounds like a slightly older version of gelling



Signed for the Sea Eagles for next season :(

Esi Tonga has signed for Manly, no mention of Willie. I think it's obvious we'd be linked with him due to Hock going and talk of George signing with NZ warriors.

I think Gelling has the potential to be world class, he just needs a run in the team and some fine tuning, he was never going to replace George last year. From what I saw of him he's an awkward player to stop and doesn't mind grafting for the team.

greg eden to hull kr from hudds another one thats surprising - wasnt he touted as the next big thing earlier this year?
I've seen them bomb a quarter final, bottle a semi final, finish as league leaders, but I've still, never, seen the Wire win the league

Which probably says more about Brown than Eden.

Personally I don't rate either as top draw.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Was Wane in Oz purely trying to offload Hock or was he there potentially trying to recruit ???

He was there on holiday visiting his daughter who lives in Oz mainly.

The word was he was keeping an eye out for potential signings as well and he also spent a few days with the Gold Coast and NZ warriors teams I believe.

I can't see anymore incomings unless Hock goes.
