Only difference is French is not a stand off. All the others you name where.


How do know that he is not capable of playing Stand Off, unless of course he has told you himself.

The same way we know Andy Platt wasn’t a 6.

We have eyes in our head.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

So have I!

As far as I am concerned, a versatile top class back player like Beven French is capable of playing just as well at stand off as he is on the wing and full back.

Ellery Hanley started as a winger, moved to centre, then stand Off and ended up at loose forward following the signing of Andy Gregory, and also being a versatile top class class player, excelled in them all.

Henry Paul was another example of a versatile top class player being capable of playing well in different positions.

Hardaker is a top class versatile back having played full back centre and wing to a good standard. Should we try him at 6 as well because by your logic he’d be great there?

Yeah why not?

Just like Cas often use Grant Millington at 6 at times, it's really not a key role.

They’ve not used Millington at 6 for ages and the only time he was used there was when all the halfbacks were injured. With that logic why don’t we try one of our props at 6? How about Tony Clubb

I had to read it again, #6 not a key roll??
along with #1,#7,#9 and #13 they are the spine of the team, and generally the ones who get paid the big money.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Most idiotic post ever goes to Grimmy..... The way to restart should be an arm wrestle between a designated player from each side.

Spot on, not sure what game Wigg'n has been watching over the years but it can't have been rugby league!
