McCurrie holds the record for most tries scored in a season by a forward in the p&b, how does that make him a bad signing?



13 tries in 2000
Bob Eccles scores 37 in 1982-1983


I must be thinking of something else here; not sure what!

He was far from a poor signing though regardless.

Didn't we sign Matt Sturm on a four year deal at the time & he played most of his time at other clubs because we couldn't get shut. Not sure if he came at the same time as the famous Matt Rodwell . As for Sullivan, my memories are that he was one player that used to be on Rauhihi's shoulder when he made a break & for some reason he wanted to be a halfback but he was more a hooker.

Sullivan was just over here to pay off his gambling debts. Shocking signing.

Kevin Walters has to be high on the list. Did he play just the one game?

We signed Walters to re-create the most famous half back paring from the Broncos, and neither of them captured their glory days with us. Walters went home as I think his wife was very ill. I'd put Steve Blakely ahead of Walters in the worst signing bracket around that time.

Wedge was a fair tackler, but my problem with him was his offloads, blind panic into empty space more often than not the completely wrong decision and very often 20 yards from his own line.

But by far the worst was Matt FN Rodwell.

Forgot about the gambling debts. Walters...wasn't the story that his wife & family couldn't settle...sure he finished up, at a future date, managing Catalans.

I have to disagree. Sullivan had Cullen as a coach. If he were coached by a decent coach he would have been fine.


Have to agree, then we had it again with Monas!! Cullen was adament he was a 7, played one half at 9 and had a blinder when we beat Leeds in the play-off. Think he would of been good for us if used right.

Top try scoring forward in the league that year, think it was 00.

98 he was something of a blob, 99 (when he cut his hair) he looked something decent, he also worked well off langer in 00, 01 was fairly indifferent but possibly had one eye on widnes return to SL, where he turned to poop again.
