BMM, took 3 carries for 17 metres. And made 11 tackles.

Absolute pudding.

Philbin was quality though 18 for 159m, 19 tackles.


I like Philbin, looks really difficult to put down and has loads of aggression.

Totally agree on that.

Cracking player.

French did quite a bit of attacking down the middle last night and was very effective too. His 'no try' break was made that way. I think him running off Hastings, who plays all across the field, will be devastating for us next season. French has already shown he doesn't need much space to operate and if there's one thing we know about Hastings it's that he can create a gap. French will thrive as a running 6. Of that I have little doubt.

Hastings as the play maker 7 with French being played into the gaps will be treat to look forward to.

Hastings just has it all, with the threats outside running off him, French, Gildart, Farrell and Greenwood etc, it gives him more space and if they do focus on him it creates space outside, it's just a win win however you structure your defence against him.

Had a quick look on the Wire site earlier. It’s like Armageddon to the power of ten apart from our pea brained ‘friend’ rubber duckie, who is in denial.

As against Hull we stopped playing in the second half, gave up territory and invited pressure. Hull nearly took advantage, thankfully Wire weren’t good enough to take advantage. Something to work on before it bites us on the backside.

There was no need to carry on going all out in the second half. Sit back, test our defence and soak up pressure. We turned it into an arm wrestle on purpose.

That said, Philbin changed the game for them, he was incredible and miles better than the pudding Chris Hill.

Marshall was outstanding for us (bombed try apart), what a player this kid is, never gives less than 100% even with injuries.

Leuluai was also a class apart, best half on the field. I can’t believe people on here still think Matty Smith is a decent player, championship standard at best.

I'd actually like to see French given a game at FB.

In defence Zak is second to none, reminds me of an 'old school fb' safe as houses under the high ball a great one on one defender and a great last line of defence.

But... I'm going to say something which could provoke debate....i think from watching French in the NRL I think he 'could' be a better attacking fb than Zak.
Linking out wide I'd say he's passing is better and he's show and go with his pace would be frightening for opposition defences.

Id like to see how he'd play in SL in the full back position. Just out of curiosity if nothing else.

I don't want to look beyond this season... So much more could happen for us. But it'd hard not to get excited about Hastings teaming up with our squad.

Then... Thrown in George Burgess.
