If Rovers signed Hock and Hansen at 34 and 32, we would be ridiculing them endlessly. Thoroughly depressing news. Can't really say I care either way about Clarkson but surely we can train any of our young forwards to be average tackling machines?

HDM linking us with Gareth Hock! Jesus!


Hopefully this is just the HDM plucking names as he is clubless. Once a good player but way too much baggage for mine.

Tbf, Despite the initial widespread dismay at his signing, Danny Tickle has been good for us this year. There seems to be more value in the rugged veteran market than the exciting youngster one, currently.

Unless Hull, or any club, stump up fees it is slim pickings currently.

You can't bin Liam Watts and then sign Gareth Hock. Utter madness.

TBF though Tickle is still a decent player maybe not as good as he was but still has value to a team, Hock is just bad news and to be honest is no where near the player he once was by a long way.

Hock would be a strange one, I admit. Hansen could be a decent option. Of all the players likely to become available when/if Widnes’s relegation is confirmed, he’d maybe be the pick. Not saying that much perhaps, and I’m excepting Gelling, but realistically who is going to be available? You might pay a couple of fees, but I assume one or two recruits will have to be frees. FWIW, the HDM seems to think so too, unless they’re deliberately lowering expectations so whoever does come in looks better.

Harrison Hansen would be a good signing on a 1 year deal. Gutted when we 'gave him' to Widnes.

If the end of 2019 is going to be a massive overhaul and turnover of players that we expect, then we cannot be getting players now on 2-3 year deals as that will impact next year. Best we can hope for is a few players on 1 year deals until the big transition at the end of 2019.

The Championship One grapevine has been suggesting for some time that Gareth Hock has already signed for Newcastle Thunder for next year, along with Liam Finn.

I just can't see there been anyway in hell that Radford would get rid of a potential world class bag egg (Watts) but then be willing to sign a past his best has-been very bad egg.
