Need more from this guy. Thought I'd post again seen as poptart rudely took it down. Shades of the player we saw last season. Shame as himself and wood would HV been a feared partnership

A couple of points re Randell that may not be that obvious.
In defence his tackling is far better than Wood's. Importntly he comes in at second or third man and takes the legs and taking the opponent to the ground. In comparrison when he is not on the field No one else in our team consistently does this. The difference between tackling a player to the ground and tackling one standing is how quickly they can then play the ball.
Also he has kicked 2 40-20s this season i think? . Again we have no one else in the team to do this, has anyone else even tried since Grix got injured?
He is not the same type of hooker as Wood but to me both offer plenty to the team.

Have to agree, he has been a bit underwhelming - he suffers from the high expectations gained from his excellent debut.
never really reached his early promise.

I agree Captain.
It's simply a matter of understanding the benefits of each player. I like the Randall Wood partnership. I think it works well.

So much different than Woody and the way Wakefield attack and defend also changes which means we are not as readable. Dropped a ............. with his pass on Friday night and yes we'd like to see more but sometimes 'back to basics' grinds out wins.

I like them both, and are a good partnerships, whilst being two different style hookers.

As somebody has rightly pointed out too, kicked a few 40/20s this year. He has a good kicking game, and is also solid in defiende.

I still think potentially too, could do a job for us in the halves, if needed

He's nothing better than average - but he does do the mucky stuff that lets Woody come on and look like a world-beater; they are very different players with a very different role, so whilst he doesn't especially excite, he rarely messes up - notwithstanding that pass on Friday.

Whether that's worth a quota spot, I don't know - I can't help wondering why Anakin never nailed down the position; he seems built for it, but I'm guessing he doesn't have the nouse to do anything other than run in a straight line?

When he first came over I thought we had signed a 'belter' . I also heard it said he is our highest earning player.

In my opinion he has slipped backwards this season. OK he doesn't have bad games and he is reliable defensively. At the moment I do not think he is delivering anymore than a run of the mill type English hooker would give you. I honestly thought we were getting a Brad Drew type of match winning player.


So in my opinion he is not a bad player and deserves his place in the side. But value for money overseas quota spot, I have my doubts.


Lets hope he can regain that early arrival form he showed.

Not forgetting he never suffered any injuries until he came here and has had a couple of difficult ones to recover from
