Can't believe there is all this speculation over the most settled and strongest position in the England team. Ah yes its another Trinity 'Are we a big club?' Thread. The answer is still no, it's embarassing that your posters feel the need to open discussions on every player you have that is any good, or after a few wins in superleague.

Indeed the VT is bursting full of such threads.

Or alternatively, fans could be pleased that positive discussion is being had outside the same old boring 3/4 clubs. Anyone would think people don’t want strong clubs throughout SL.
It was the same, & still is to some extent, when Powell changed the fortunes of Cas (don’t think we don’t know you’re waiting hopefully we’ll return to the bottom half of the league)!

This is spot on.

After a few early season wins against some of the weaker sides in SL, 'Wakey' fans were all over their board discussing 'are we a big club again'.

They'll need to finally do something about that tip of a stadium first plus win some trophies before they are even considered a 'big club'.

No doubt though should they get a poor result against Cas this week it will be all down to the ref yet again. They're never beaten only cheated you see.

You should be worrying about trips to Batley & Workington, not the fortunes of a top 5 super League club.

Jeez. All this “wakey think they are a big club” is damn right childish and come out of nowhere perhaps a maybe jealousy. It’s about a player who’s showing promising form with added discussion on other Good young wingers out there who maybe in with a shot too. If you don’t want to contribute and want to wind up throwing out stupid comments out of the blue from probably a handful of fans who got carried away 6 months ago representing a minority’s then just get off this post.

Get a grip and grow up, stop trying to have a measuring contest.

And Hall is injured hence the speculation and likelihood of a chance for another player. If you don’t want Hall to play on one leg that is :/.

its not about Wakefield Trinity its about a quality player now pushing for an England spot who plays for Trinity and is loyal to the club, don't worry you shouldn't feel threatened by a lowly humble club like ours :lol:

No they weren't.

It's interesting to see 9 pages of back and forth about the possibility of an exceptional talent like Tom Johnstone stepping in for an injured Ryan Hall; it's almost as if some people can't discuss the relative merits of players from clubs other than their own, without feeling the need to get a few digs in - and the lowlier they perceive that club to be, the more barbed the comments. It's exceptionally childish.

For mine, Hall has been one of the most consistent performers in an England shirt - and has achieved fantastic things in his club career; I defy anyone to reasonably argue that he's not one of the greatest wingers in the modern game.

But... a) he's injured and b) he won't last forever; so in a position in which we are strong, Johnstone is without a doubt in the mix for a call-up, if not now, in the near future. It's not that difficult.

What a crock of crap - it's nothing to do with Trinity it's very simple Johnstone is the best in form winger in SL and more than worthy of consideration END OF!!!

English fans need to grow uo and stop with the big club small club crap which in fairness all eminates from Leeds, Wigan and Saints fans who seem terrified of losing the 'status' as they see it.

I'd love every Trin player to be International class but they are not as indeed most Saints players arn't for example. Johnstone can't be called an international class player but only because he hasn't been tested. Once tested we'll know and now with Hall out TJ is the best available left sided winger after the injured Hall.

It's not rocket science and it's nothing to do with stadiums, income streams, past history or any of the other nonesense on here. RL fans are pathetic, only interested in creating heroes out of there own players whilst rubishing any that don't conform to there prejudice.

International players are all about the individual not the team they play for - it's there form that counts not that of the team they play for.
