Pretty much all the players have been useless on this tour... Something was wrong the whole squad over.

Widdop will prove to be a great signing.

Indeed. I doubt st helens are worried about Thompson being a non-tackling metre crunching show pony with back acne!! Its only this tour that has shown that.

We've just had an insight in to what Widdop looks like in a mediocre and uninspiring side, which isn't able to impose itself on its opponents.

If we were hoping that Widdop was going to be the guy with background at the top of the NRL, to reignite an average GB side, we were disappointed.

This doesn't mean he is a bad player but he might not be a player who is going to have a transformational impact on an otherwise pedestrian side. How he looks playing for GB might be a better predictor of how he will look for us than watching clips of him playing in St George Illawarra's best days.

Think we might also keep Charnley & Lineham on the wings & Austin in the halves.

We've just had an insight into how Hastings MOS would have looked in the second half of the season at Warrington. I don't what the answer is to our problems, but I hope Price has worked it out.

He’ll be playing for a higher quality SL side than he was an NRL side (in relation to how both sides are in their own league) and when he was fit last season he had some brilliant performances.
