Late to the party, but very concerned about McNamara, I'm not convinced he is good enough, attack stopped when he got the ball. Litten was excellent, be tempted to look at him at fullback at Hoy at 6 at some point against Wakey.

I'd go shaul full back smith been impressed with him

How did people like Staveley, Martin and Wacokecoke go?

i agree with you about Ben but i expect we will see Shaul go to full back rather than Litten and if McNamara doesnt cut it then i can see Shaul at full back for our opening fixture

Litten was excellent when he came on, Sunday. I read somewhere he’s off to Oz, next season. I think McNamara has to be given time to bed in the new spine, you certainly can’t make a judgement call on one pre season outing. I certainly don’t think Hoy should be moved from fullback, that’s his position and you called the last 2 coaches for playing round pegs in square holes. This isn’t a dig btw.

Problem is our youngsters aren't top class anymore coming through

Fash got our player of the year yet didn't get close to a world cup call up

That sums us up at the moment

Likes of brown fash Lane are OK but they're no where near Richard Horne Cooke or yeaman class

Wigan saints and Leeds youngsters come straight off the belt

The city of our size the recent development has been poor in general last 10 years

Playing Hoy at six isnt a square peg in a round hole


Tex Hoy is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who plays as a fullback and five-eighth . He previously played for the Newcastle Knights in the National Rugby League. Wikipedia

I agree and have said previously i hope we keep Hoy at full back.
I just dont see very much at all in McNamara as a six.Nothing to do with coming back from injury or the friendly game.
What ever the coach does we have to back his judgement but i am certain for our opening game we will see Jamie Shaul involved rather than Litten and probably off the bench

I agree Mcnamara is a concern, seems too ponderous when he gets the ball, he has never once impressed me when playing first grade, but better coaches than us see something in him, so trust the judgement of Smith, Hoy has played 6 before, at NRL level, so he is an option. I like Jamie Shaul and if Smith can improve his link up play and distribution, then we do have some options, but Davey Litten looks like a Rolls Royce, effortlessly picks up the plays and has a great future, I just hope we can retain him.

Staverly looked the part, very physical, expect him to debut this season.

It's great that Shaul has impressed with his attitude in training, buy like others if he doesn't improve his game on the last few years then he shouldn't make the 17.

If Hoy isn't to be moved and can see the reasons why, it could be Lovodua at 6.

I'd avoid that temptation, Lovodua, is not a half for me, anyway. Clifford is more six than seven, whenever I have watched NRL, which was every weekend at one time before SKY got too expensive. play Ben McNamara at scrum half, despite my misgivings , everyone speaks highly of his ability. Despite the fact that Lovodua was signed as hooker, his distribution wasnt that great whenever I saw him at off half and Ben Mc can pass efficiently , do he'd get the nod for me until Truman id ready. Worrying that we are still sweating over this issue, though but when everyone is fit, we do have what looks like a tremendous spine, with viable options. My worry is Hoy, good player and rapid, but it takes time to settle in any new environment and the British winter will only compound that, I think he could quite easily get very homesick, particularly if he doesn't start well.
