Aydin and Shaw aren’t even getting runs at Sheffield strangely.

Butler has been okay. He was solid against Wigan without doing anything special. In my opinion he needs a strict and heavy pre season for fitness and weights. He clearly lacks match fitness but it’s too early to judge just yet imho.



Completely agree. Thought he had a good game. The problem is, half the people making comments about Butler don’t know their a*se from their elbow when talking about RL! The poor lads career took a huge hit due to Covid and he hasn’t been given the game time or opportunities to get back on track. He played in the England knights squad at 21 after his first season in SL. There’s no way his career peaked there. Reckon he will prove to be solid signing next year.

6’2” experienced prop playing for a contract for 2023.

I can’t see why issue with him coming in short term, and maybe longer should he go well.

He certainly won’t harm the squad.

Bit of a Chris Green signing, I’d take him.

Think the issue issue is some think we should be signing luke thompson and josh papali ,bowden on loan for reat of season vould be good for me yes i like shaw and aydin but bowden has over 160 games in sl to his name experience could be vital

A bit of a similar story, both looked great in 2016/17, but picked up too many injuries. I honestly can't remember Bowdens last good game, probably 4 years ago. The fact we have just had two props suspended and we are releasing him, probably tells its own story.

Seems a decent bloke and hope he does well for you.

Apparently according to some Trin fans you may as well be dead at 30. Incredible when you consider what an effect the much older Bill Ashurst once had on Trinity.

And no I’m not comparing them ability wise but age is not relevant so long as they are fit and want to play.

At 30 I suspect he still fancies a few more seasons. Frankly I don’t care if he just comes and plays his heart out to get a contract at the end of the season and we never hear from him again. So long as we stay up it’s money we’ll spent.

A possible good signing, as played in the props and at loose forward for Hull. Also had big game experience while playing for them, that could be valuable to us with the games coming up. I admit I haven`t seen him play this season, I think he got an injury , but always seemed to like taking the ball in. The change may do him good as he`s leaving a team that`s worse than Wakey on current form. Good luck Josh.

Plenty of super league experience ,a change of scenery, and hopefully we see a good solid prop going forwards People were saying the same when we got Washy and look what an astute signing he turned out to be . If he comes I’m all for it ,you just never know when injuries/suspensions are going to hit and we need players of his calibre to get us home and dry this season at least, and give us time to regroup .As sad as it is to see Tupou and Johnstone go it’s certainly given us some wiggle room to freshen up the squad ,and seeing how Trueman has just committed to Hull it’s a defo on the Miller to Cas saga ,so more incomings in the near future . Exciting times ahead .

Mmm, not sure about this one.

I'll be honest, if we were signing another prop, I'd rather have gone for Mulhern, unless of course, one is on the way out.

Prepared to give him a chance first, however in the Red, White and blue
