Sammut overrated. London played him from the bench on several occasions, not tactical methinks, rather he was ineffective at times. Has he ever run rings round Fax? Don't think so.

Hasn't he scored more tries than any player we have in our team and more combined than both our half backs? For an awful player he certainly has tries in him and unless I have missed the last couple of seasons, that is exactly what we need.

How many has he created for others compared to our half backs? He is an individual capable of the odd bit of magic which fools people into thinking he's something special. He makes many errors and frequently takes the wrong option. He almost blew it for London against Widnes with his erratic ways.

That would be difficult to judge fairly without knowing exact stats but given our lack of tries it wouldnt be a surprise if he has at least matched one of ours.

Sammut isn't rubbish, but agree with Leon. He's an individual and not a team player. London prefer a hooker in Cunningham at scrum half and Pewhairangi at stand off with Sammut on the bench. Having said that, he might compliment "team general" Muzza in our halves and add some variety. Seems a great bloke as well (judging by post match interviews) so would slot nicely in the Fax Team Spirit. Get him signed!

In the words of Obi Wan Kenobi, this is not the half back your are looking for.

He has skills but not sur eye is who we need, we need a younger Muzza.

RM wanted him last year and made an offer, Fev offered more and he followed Duffy to Rovers.
Yes a good player who offers a genuine threat and puts a shift in to help bring the ball out.

I maybe wrong usually are,, I thought Fax has some good wingers already in situ with others waiting their chance? obviously not privvy to contracts and retainers list, who is moving on or does RM think one of them may slot in at the half? As that is where everyone else says we need recruitment. However if the guy is class and can improve our attack, but does he not need a quality centre fo feed him?, again people have slated our centres this year.
My Humble Opinion Only - let the knockers begin.
