Not seen his name mentioned much lately, have you discovered that he is very average yet? :wink:
Love a brew.

Doing just fine for us. Even more so that he can play a few different positions.

You worry about your own team :wink:

Varks is good but injured at the mo
Hartley cant tackle
And Gannon is excellent.

Sounds about right, although it seems like an age since Gannon was here. You need to keep Webster injury free though (as we do Penky).

Looks a very classy player - fits in well with our team as we like to throw the ball about. Scored a good try today. Im sure he would be a stand out player in other teams but fortunatly for us we have great players all over the park.

40 plus tackles versus a rugged Barrow side -
a facet of his game we didn't know about
67.5% of all statistics are made up

Probably struggling to stand out at Fax as much as he did at Widnes but thats probably because we have some of the classiest players in the league playing for us. :D

very consistent in the first games i have seen him play in there is none of this play 1 good game then 7 average ones like the widnes fans said. he has been very consistent so far and hopefully he can keep it going and play for the whole season like we know he can.

What do you mean? It was very much a case of the opposite.

No point covering old ground but the only reason why Beswick isn't still at Widnes is because last year we desperately needed the 'stars' of the squad to take games by the scruff of the neck and be a shinning example to the younger players or players like Lee Paterson or Tim Hartley who don't have such a lofty reputation. What happened though was that week after week Beswick's performances were average and although he wasn't awful, he just wasn't worth the money to keep on.

At the end of the day, I think Beswick's move to Halifax was the best thing all round. Beswick probably needed the kick up the bum and Widnes needed players who would make the difference in games. No doubt Beswick will have a stormer against us, he's certainly capable of it, but had Beswick stayed at Widnes, what would have been the chances that he would have had a stormer against Halifax? Very slim IMO.
