Pointless signings: Doc Murray, Antony Swann, Martin Dermot (knees shot), Kris Watson.

Those caning Neil Parsley, etc, seem to have forgotten the state we were in at the time of theses signings. poop creek wouldn't come close.

Correct, xe didn't spend much on the 4 other signings xe made that year, the bloke from Salford, and 3 other blokes, that alien looking fella, the bloke who fights. And the prop who thought he was a stand off

what a poop post even today at 44 years of Age Walters looks nothing like a fat PLEASE DON'T USE THAT TERM AGAIN, IT IS NOT WELCOME ON RLFANS from St Helens. Like I said a few pages back the bloke came over to England just over a couple of years after his Wife had died of Cancer leaving him bringing up three young boys. I can fully understand Why he decided he wanted to go back home after one Game......

if you judge the qualities of a former Brisbane, Queensland, and Australia Legend after his first game inf England then I would imagine only Allan Langer would have lasted more than one game for Wires, how many Overseas players have had sparkling debuts....???

Walters decided it wasnt for him and went home thats fair enough at least he turned up unlike Campion and at least he didnt rob us for a season like Steve Roach, and at least he wasnt crap for two seasons flicking the bird to our fans like Matt king......


Oh The irony of the entire thread versus a minor slang word

For me, David Kidwell must be up there with the worst signings. The guy had the ability, as proven by his subsequent NRL appearances. But his showing for us was shocking.

As The Flying Biscuit says, Matt King was dire for his first 18 months/2 years. But pulled it back when Tony Smith arrived..... Which just shows how important a coach is. Could Sullivan have been as good as Monaghan at hooker if Smith was coaching him??????

Anyway, I don't think I'll ever see a worse half back at Wire as Tom O'Reilly. Truley shocking that he made the first team.

Not saying he's bad, not at all but i always thought Simon Gillies would have done more than he did, i remember thinking naively (being fairly young then) that he was going to be a world beater and lift us to glory.

Was his contract always going to be a year or did he get fed up/injured?

No No No!
There was nothing wrong with Kidwell. He got great service off Langer, and he looked quality. As soon as Langer left, he got NO service (due to the halves at the time) and therefore looked poor.
As soon as he was back in the NRL again, he was quality.

Going back to Yed's recent post re Gillies. I was underwhelmed with him, too, but (as with 1 year of Kidwell's stint) he had nowt around him.Didn't we sign Gillies with SoO experience behind him?
....and this lad's been sat on the bench...............doesn't it make you wonder?

No, Sullivan was a bench player in the NRL who made his name from being fast and speeding up the pace of the game when he came on, Monaghan was one of the best players in the NRL, the season before he joined us (2007) he was one of the form players of the league.

As we saw when Sullivan went back to the NRL he didn't last long at Canterbury Bulldogs. He just wasn't really that good a player. He struck lucky getting himself a big deal with us and a big reputation that he wasn't able to match.

Did really well for the Warriors (just re-reading Dean Bells book), but not impressed with him in p&b
