Ask yourself this are any in SL. SL have no world class props in any team now.

But for us we do not need any props we have no idea how to use them. If we had the top 4 on your list their attack yards would collapse under Wane.


Thought the discussion was about size?

Need forwards who can make the hard yards, get us out of our own half and tire defences.

Need combination props. Problem we have I think we have 2 genuine good props others are average at best for a reason I feel. Clubb and Flower are decent but the others are not putting in a decent game week in week out when available. TT is unpredictable but has the potential but FPN has been poor.

Is this the props or is it the wingers not been big enough to overpower props. For me our props on paper are on par with any side in SL but utilised totally wrongly by Wane. Our props are not there to make yards but to restrict the opposition.

Lachlan Lam smashed it for PNG today. Chip off the old block and Adrian must be chuffed to bits for him. Wonder if he’d fancy 3 years alongside George at Wigan?

Get him to bring his dad with him as well.

Luke Walsh has extended his stay at Catalans. The lad can kick but he’s not got much else going for him.

Regarding the Hock thing, even if he is a liability he's still an awesome player but a pay as you play contract for any player is a ridiculous idea. Do you think a prop that knows if he gets injured is going to run into contact fully committed? Absolutely not, they'll be thinking if I get injured, I don't get paid, they'll hold back into contact guaranteed.

Widnes have signed Krisnan Inu. That's a great coup for them.

In relation the Hock I doubt we would have him back, however if we were willing to take him back as a club I’d have him back in an instant for the right contract.

Big raw boned aggressive Prop. Exactly what we need. Our pack is powder puff light. Bateman seems to have mellowed and MM definitely has. Both formerly very aggressive players now seem pussycats compared to the days they were firing into Jamie Peacock & Ryan Bailey at the Magic Weekend.

We need an enforcer or 2 in the pack.

Hock is the perfect fit. Unlikely however and to be fair you can understand why.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

Hock should never be allowed near our great club again after he vexed all over both club and fans, i honestly can't believe some fans want this to happen, it beggars belief

Even putting aside the off field misdemeanours, has anyone actually seen Hock play recently? One good run and he's puffing for air. Discipline has become even worse. More fat than muscle. Injury prone. Would be a horrible signing in every way.

Inu is awful as well.

We need players who can improve us if we're going to bring anyone in - we dont need signings for the sake of it.
