Even if Cas win handsomely tomorrow it won't mean olpherts is better. TJ at his pomp is international quality. Powell can probably get olpherts punching above his weight and that's commendable all round but it's a 1 horse race in a comparison of the 2.
"I'm sorry, but I would hope that we would beat Cas with a 1 day turnaround."

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

I might be wrong but I get the feeling Tom hasn’t played in all that many derbies due to injuries.

That said wingers only win these kind of games when the ball gets out to them. This is something Cas have always done far better in recent years.

It’s not TJ we need to ignite, we need Miller, Hampshire and the Woods to be on top form tonight.

I'll just be pleased if Eden is not out there. For all his faults he always seems to punish us with ball in hand.

Wiki says Olpherts is born in Wakey but what's his background pre Dewsbury signing? Surprised how old he is, 28.

Interview with him on the radio and he said that he was a Wakefield fan in his younger days.

TJ is a classy player and one of only 3 or 4 in the league I genuinely think would make it in the NRL. Having watched Olpherts over the last few years though he is very underrated for me, and he will make a success of himself at Cas, he has gone under the radar but I think he will come very good - I could not quite understand some of the stick he got from some Cas fans when his signing was announced.
