How in the world can he cover the halves? He’s a lot of things but never a half back. He can’t kick, pass or spot space!! Surely he’s a centre. He will lose some of that weight with different conditioning. He’s basically a like for like replacement for Atkins. If we get a few years of Atkins level quality then we would have done very well. As a fan of both codes it’s an intriguing signing. Definitely sceptical but looking forward to seeing how he goes.

If it works, it could be good for the game if League can start bringing Union players back into the game. Though that would always have to be marque so a big risk. Also, chance of resentment from players if an average Union player turns up on a big wage. I wouldn’t be happy.

Another over the hill player taking the place of a youngster, it is typical this from Warrington.You have young lads in your 1st team squad that I know are absolutely ripping it up in training day in day out with limited opportunities then they sign a 30+ year old player that knocks them back again. Give the young lads a shot ffs


Coming from the team that signed Joseph Paulo? And are now sending Danny Richardson off to Leigh?

My forum name has nothing to do with saint helens . Where he going to play ? In place of who , Goodwin, Atkins, king, curry, Hughes, Livett, Mamo, because at 31 he’s not going to get any better. So why not give one off the young lads a go like Robson, Johnson, Davies,

Risky but exciting signing. Our deluded, bitter scouse friends never fail to amuse me. Really hoping we meet in the GF this year as we're guaranteed to beat them in a big game YET AGAIN!!

Great signing. He’ll go as a centre or loose and brings power and pace. Far from over the hill at 31 and just adds more quality to our pack.
