Yep - he’s completely brainless.

Probably a bit unfair on fielden that.


Really not sure what it is about Connor, does anyone think there's a deep rooted issue ?


If I had to guess I'd say he's probably still sulking about being dropped to the bench a few weeks ago. Think it might have been around the time of the cup semi final?

Connor strikes me as the sort of player who could do really, really well under a good coach who can control his temperament. Unfortunately for him right now he's playing under Lee Radford.

You watch... Hull will beat Saints next week Me we will finish 6th.


Unless Saints choose to rest more than half the squad, as is our right, I can't see Hull having the quality to beat any professional side. They are terrible. I don't understand why particularly, there are some really good players in that side and they should be up there as genuine contenders this season.

Hull have had one of the best squads throughout Radford's tenure. They have the individual talent to beat any side but never the consistency. I can't believe he is still in the job.

The cup wins plus I can't imagine he's a highly paid coach . But I agree the individuals in that side and the levels of consistency are crazy

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

I wish Hull, Catalans and Leeds would hurry up and get proper coaches as it would transform the league IMO.

Do you think Saints will have a chance of winning something with a proper coach?

Hull should take the £500k Leeds are rumoured to be offering and spend it on someone who actually wants to play Rugby rather than act a clown and the big man.

One day he will wind up the wrong person and end up with his face caved in. At that point he will fade into obscurity just like Fielden did.

I posted last night on our forum that I think we should cash in on Connor and spend the money on getting a top full back in. We already have Fonua coming who is a great replacement in the centres for Connor, and Shaul just offers nothing anywhere near the likes of Coote or Hardaker. A full back in a similar mould to those 2 would give us much more attacking threat near the line.

Personally, I think we could have Craig Bellamy and Wayne Bennett as coaches, Ponga at fullback, the two Fifitas at prop and play in the North West counties competition and still lose the Grand Final. I think we're cursed personally. The only way to improve it is a full exorcism including sacrificing a goat in all four corners of Old Trafford.

I don't go in for killing animals, but would happily participate if it was a Wiganer.
