We seem to have a tendency to push our younger players around a number of positions and not letting them settle, I know there's the argument that there needs to a level of flexibility within the team but just seems that by not having that little bit of stability and ability to "grow into" the required body shape / mass to be effective in the positions played.

That's not going to happen Hurrell just needs to start reading the defence lines better.

Yes exactly!
He has plenty of games under his belt and still cannot defend.

I guess 1 year is a sign that younger players need to really earn the longer contracts we used to hand out. So they should.


I think the one year thing is because his existing deal had the option of 1 more year and the club have just exercised that option.

That's not always the case though is it? Holroyd will play prop right through because he's a prop. Hall played pretty much wing right through. If a player is good enough in one position we can afford to develop them just there. There are plenty of examples.

I don't think Cam's D has been strong enough at times to play loose, and we have some other options there, hence moving around a bit. I don't think he's a hooker either but I suppose until he cements a position then he has to fit in where the need is.

Overall given another year or two Cam Smith could develop into a very good 13.

He holds onto the ball and kills our attack. Same as Liam Sutcliffe. Get rid of both and Ferres!

Sutclife is a handy player to have in your squad can play several positions plus he's an ok goalkicker.Smith has very good ball skills suited to 13 he's only been given a one year contract so this will keep him on his toes.I feel with the right coaching he'll only get better.Ferres he's got to be a gonna.

No brainer to keep Cam, think he'l be a good player for us down the line.

We should largely be playing with a settled squad in 2020. Important year for Cam who needs to be good enough to be selected on a regular basis and to show a decent level of improvement on where he's been at this year. This isn't a criticism of where he is now - he's young after all. But young players who've been given the crack he has should develop and not stagnate.
