Don’t really follow the NRL in any great detail but, after having watched the 2016 highlights of him on YouTube, I can’t wait to see him in action.

We are starting to see some ‘proper’ signings at last and I sense that Adrian Lam is feeling like he’s the main man rather than some interim project.

Well done to IL and all concerned. I’m hoping there’s one more piece in the jigsaw still to be announced and we all know who that is!

Excited to see the lad go! Just hope people give him time - we're almost at the business end of the season and it's going to take him a while to get up to speed and settled in etc.

Still not sure if we had a greater need at prop for this season tho?

I think it's more a case of who is available concerning props if we can't get a top prop i wouldn't bother just concentrate on getting Burgess

Yeah that's probably true.

Cas being the usual pr!cks that they are and not letting Clarke come early really leaves a sour taste imo.

Quality signing that if he can recapture his form from a few seasons ago
The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

Say something negative about any other team than theirs - Its an opinion

Can't blame them. Why should they help a rival? I doubt Wigan would do any different in their shoes.

As for French, like a lot of people, I feel our need is greater in the forwards.


BUT... it would be churlish to complain about signing an exciting attacking talent when it becomes available. As remarked upthread, we will have an excellent back-line at this rate with pace to burn. Now if we could really snap up George Burgess as well, I think anyone questioning the club's ambition will have their answer.

Hes is coming but doubt it will be announced until Souths season is over. Bennett wanted him to stay in the NRL

If the shoe was on the other foot I actually do think we'd have let him go to Cas. FWIW we seem to do right by players. The guy wanted out & Cas have been pretty rubbish about the whole thing. Doesn't surprise me tho as they are an awful, awful club.

But no so much that he wanted to keep him at Souths?

Hardly counts for much.

They couldnt fit him under the cap. Being England coach as well he isnt someone you want to upset. There is no rush to announce it there is plenty of this season yet for us to worry about

Bennett is a coaching legend but his attitude towards superleague is pretty shoddy. He doesn’t seem to realise that some of his best players during his time in charge have been raised in superleague and have only ever played in superleague. To talk about hoping players stay in the NRL make it sound like he thinks they’re coming to some sort of third world league. Having players in the NRL is clearly helping us but he should just keep his head down and not put his foot in it because the flow of lads going over will continue to be steady enough to help the national team.
