Clearly you don’t watch the NRL. Tip for you, have a look at the top 10 meter makes on the NRL and more importantly, the top post contact meter makers

I do love the way Warrington Guardian have posted a story bugging you the signing and now all Wire fans are experts on him.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

Warrington sign a lot of good players, but when they pull on that shirt they just slip into their culture and become lesser players.
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!

Doesn't sound like Hull were ever in for French, maybe smart work by his agent to get a better deal, doesn't matter, be a great deal if you manage to keep him, don't understand why the likes of Wests, Titans or Dophins haven't tried to sign him.

Both Wests and Titans have got talented young full-backs, dunno about the Dolphins.

Yep, similar to Hull in that way.

No problem putting a strong squad of players together but something then goes very wrong.

You would have to guess that a lot of that is down to the head coach position.

I watched the Out of your league podcast with the Hull KR CEO last night and I thought Wilkin nailed it (for once) in regards to why we’ve only ever had 4 Grand Final Winners. As he said the common denominator is the fact all 4 have/had strong academies and the sides that won finals was a mix of top class homegrown players and they were topped up by good quality signings brought in from outside the club. Those two clubs have never got that balance right and they still continue to struggle with it.

The coach is so so important but you could put the best coach in the world in charge of Hull or Warrington currently and I still don’t think they have anything other then fleeting success (as they’ve had with the odd cup win). The model for long term, sustainable success is right there in the list of Grand Final winners.

Did Bradford have many academy graduates during their success?

I suppose they’re the one with the least but you still had Peacock, Fielden, Pryce, Langley etc and they really formed the backbone of the side. Had it not been for the financial troubles they probably would’ve carried on competing for Grand Finals as well with guys like the Burgess lads, Whitehead, Bateman and so on.

You compare those names to lads brought through at Hull and Wire since 1998 and I’m struggling to think of too many of that sort of quality.
