Give over they are both more than decent so what’s the problem. To get better we’d have to go top end NRL and we can’t afford that and they arn’t available. Try and be realistic please we have far more pressing needs imo.


Think you are wrong the top teams all have quick v dangerous full backs.
Even think Hanbury at Widnes would improve us. Grix is clearly finished and Jowett is back up at best from what I've seen he is far too slow for a top level fullback.

So replace one 34 year old fullback with a 33 year old fullback?
Fantastic forward thinking!
We have Luke Hooley if you didn't know.

For me like others have said it's a stick, as long as terms are right for us and they're going to be right for him enough to get the best out of the lad. He obviously got a bit spoiled by his contract Leigh but IMO for his future, a few seasons establishing himself at Trinity would do him the world of good. Learning under the likes of Finny and just generally getting more and more game time in the halves could set himself up for the rest of his career.

Spot on just needs to establish himself then the world is his oyster. Also Triny under CC and MC have shown a good level of loyalty to players and that alone should be worth a bob or two. In life it’s always the wider picture.

Nothing obvious about it, at Leigh he was payed a decent contract nothing more, just because it was more than what he's getting now does not mean he was a bit spoiled to use your words, if you want to talk about being a bit spoiled then look no farther than Wigan where he was paid as much as Leigh and Wakey together.

Not only that Hanbury is just absolutely terrible and makes Grix looks like Billy Slater.

Fair enough Hanbury I'm living on his past.
Still don't think Grix and Jowett are the answer to bother top teams.. Hampshire more to come

Personally I hope to see a bit of competition in the fullback spot between Jowitt and Hooley.

Has anyone seen the article in Loverugbyleague? I thought Chester had squashed the Reynolds interest?

Yes I saw that before too.

I have also heard more and more over the past 2 weeks that Matty Smith to Catalans is a done deal.

With Drinkwater there, and enjoying his time there (someone posted on here a while back how the weather was similar to down under, and his partner has followed hiim)

The question is, why would they have 2 organisers in the same side
