Heard he's in charge of the attack and discipline at Hull...how's that working out ? :)

True, which raises questions about Simon Grix's judgment.


I think those questions were answered before the start of last season when he offloaded 2 very good centres and went in to the season without a recognised centre as a replacement. That said it was still a surprise when Finn didn't bring in another centre which does leave the suspicion that many of us suspected about moving JWH to centre.

The problem in our league is that a lot of teams are struggling for the same positions which you feel they must have a replacement lined up for Murray otherwise it would not make sense to further weaken a pack that already gets rolled most weaks.

Was talking about Props and their impact the other day.

SL prop signs for a Championship side, often mid season, their fitness is generally better with having come from the full time environment, and they are often stand out players in a side, but more often than not after a year or so they no longer stand out and are just squad members, not even automatic picks.

We've had an abundance of forwards over the last few years who have been decent enough for Championship level, but we've not had any stand out props for a while

Yep, Dan when full time was lean and mean but put unwanted timber on. A few times he got pushed back last season, never would have happened a few seasons back, he got dropped for a reason. We all like to remember players in their prime and that they'll eventually regain their touch but more often than not it never happens.

It's a fair point Brew-just hope Lannon doesnt go same way..
Re: Dan Murray : Thu Feb 22, 2024 7:24 pm  
It’d be interesting to know what input Craig huby has had on the decisions regarding our pack .
Re: Dan Murray : Thu Feb 22, 2024 8:54 pm  
I think with losing Dan now I think it’s important we re sign lannon and a couple more of the forwards. And bring in new recruits
