We have Kershaw and Murphy along with Evans who I rate and Kay as back up. There is no shortage of wingers at present in SL so replace Lineham and that’s five.

Ditto the centres. Hall, Lyne, Gaskell, Croft (who I thought improved a little). I also think it’s easier to slip in Academy players in the backs than the forwards if absolutely needed.

The debate now is do we need an NRL back or do we need it somewhere else ie Hooker.

I rate Hoid and Kay, but both are knocking on and Kay will always now be viewed as Utility. So me I’d either go for an Aussie pivot or maybe a tough tackle busting forward rather than a winger.

It’s not a deal breaker as it’s always what the coach wants. But resources as they are. All the same there is no doubt his addition would be very handy.

I am definitely with you regarding wingers. Where we really need to invest is a good half to replace Miller. I also agree somewhat on Hooker, some rate Hood more than others but be fair , he is the worst first choice hooker in the whole of SL. Not only that , its become such an important position in the modern game.

If the rumours are true, pack reinforcement funds have gone into Taylor. He is knocking on now but still a great defensive organiser in the middle. However on attack he seems to offer little from what i have seen.

I'm not convinced he's going to be honest, I'm not hearing it from anyone reliable. That doesn't mean he isn't, but the smoke signals are weak.

I've seen a lot of tapped up players at Trinity going through the motions at the end of a season. if Miller is one of them then he's one hell of an actor, that's all I can say.

Vasty, he has definitely signed for Cas, he has been given a three year deal.

Lewis gets all the praise and why not he’s a great prospect.

But the best player in the back line today was Kershaw.

How underaged is this bloke. He tormented Wigan all game and his work rate was superhuman. His knows what his stats were but in that heat I don’t know how as a player only three games back did it it.

What an engine, what guts. If Lewis is an Aston Martin then Kershaw is a turbo charged Land Rover, almost unstoppable and every bit as good as Lewis in his own way.


Agreed,
I'd have said a McClaren tbh....... :roll: :lol:

We're all Trin aren't we?

Nah I don't think Kershaw is a sports care, he's definitely an unstoppable 4x4 that just keeps going :BOW:

The same could be said for Batchelor but it appears to be common knowledge he has signed for Hull KR. I guess it’s just personal pride not wanting to see the team relegated. The only question really is Fifita and the other players with options for another season.

I’ve always thought in a few years, Kershaw will do a kirmond and move to 2nd row. Fast, strong and a decent tackler, just what you need when working hard in the middle. He’s Trin through and through, potential captain material in 5-6 years?

On Kershaw, the effort and effectiveness of Kershaw, compared to Lineham is unbelievable. The lad had a great game yesterday (mind you, all 17 put their hands up).

Thought he was from Bradford.
