Only 3 carries? He’s putting himself about then.

Are we judging a player based on one appearance.

Seen some of our props in the past 2-3 go a full stint, without taking the ball up

You won’t get many offloads away if that’s the case. It’s the future not the past that relates to what we need now. We need impact.
Thanks Fordy. Any idea how many minutes both did?

Well if you wanted to make a good first impression you’d do a bit more! Think another player hit the nail on the head with Butler, he seems to be another cheap signing.

You seem to have omitted our completion rate we gave Leeds way too much ball. DF got a few drives in as an early receiver why not give a new signing a chance when we respect our possession. I don't recall him giving any possession away

Got to give Butler a chance!!!! The poor lad has only just turned 24 I believe, had is career massively halted due to covid as he went back down to champ with broncos for a year before signing for Warrington, and although all games and players where effected by Covid, SL essentially continued and the Champ was called off completely. He then went from a year of not playing to signing for Warrington and has only played handful of games for Warrington over the course of 18 months…. Let him settle in, have a few run outs and find his form…. hopefully soon we’ll see the Rob Butler that caused some chaos for oppositions when he was at Broncos and played well enough to get in the England knights squad! Those stats from the Leeds game may not be the best, but looks like he was defensively sound to me and as mentioned above about the completion rate - can’t make carries when the ball is consistently dropped and handed over….

If people are expecting Josh Papalii or Payne Haas to pull up in a taxi at Belle Vue anytime soon to get us out of the brown stuff I’m afraid your in for disappointment ,but moving forwards and listening to big Dave’s podcast there may be some wiggle room for his brother making it next season if we can steer the ship away from the edge of the abyss this season. . Not what most want to hear at present I know ,but I think that’s as good as it’s going to get short term on a big named signing and something to ponder away from the depressing reality of being a WT supporter .

According to twitter last night, big clearout coming.

If true or not, I don't know, and if it is, there were no names brandished about.

Worked well for us when Brian Smith did it

No point in having a clear out if we are still left with the past it players on too longer contracts .Think it will be the players who have carried the team for years .I mean the real S L players in the team
