Watts is the right quality of player, my concern would be if his heart would be in it. I’m old enough to remember Leeds paying a world record for a prop that didn’t want to come, and look how that ended...

We don’t need anyone who isn’t 110% committed if we are trying to rebuild culture.


Everybody plays the Crooks thing down.yes he didn’t want to come, yes he didn’t want to be here, but he had some brilliant games for us.

Didn't Crooks get player of the year when he was with us?

At least he'd lose his virginity.

He had a handful of good games, bust his shoulder in a big game, and generally wasn’t interested.

He had far more great games for Cas, mainly because he wanted to be there...
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Crooksy was a great player who had the potential to be the best forward in the world.Leeds did overpay for him but he still played well for us. I don't think his commitment was in question but his lifestyle away from Rugby allied to injuries affected his consistency and impact.Back then the game was changing quickly in Australia and the old style ball playing front row was being replaced by athletes who looked after themselves away from the game.At that time there were a number of great pubs (many closed now) that you could visit on a Monday afternoon and you could make up 2 teams of quality players from the local clubs who were socialising after playing on Sunday.

Seeing as though there's nothing to talk about what were your favourite bullshit transfer rumours from years gone by? Growing up during school the constant rumour was Lesley Vainikolo to Leeds, my mates post man's brother etc. Was it completely bullshit or were we ever close to signing him? I assume bullshit.

The most exciting rumour for me was Paul Newlove being linked before he went to Saints, god knows if we were ever close to signing him or not.
