He's average in my opinion, but you're the man who doesn't rate Griffin whose been our standout larker all season.


I'm agreeing with Wizeb here, Cunningham is average at best and not the type of signing we need.

Not bagging him by any stretch.
Always seemed a steady Eddie type to me.
Probably do a job if a game was wrapped up but think Fash would show a bit more dynamism interjecting with Houghton as has been mooted.

Don’t see the point in letting Litten go and then signing Cunningham??
Unless your going to sign a quality hooker and spell Houghton at hooker and maybe drop him into loose forward at times then I don’t see the point. Litten is maybe a little small but tbf he hasn’t been given much of a crack in the first team to judge his ability

Maybe its Litten that wants yo leave.

As a back up I think he is a good option, gives us the chance to see if he can cut it at the top level before Houghton retires.

I could see Houghton doing some game time at 13 next year.

We need another established hooker, in one game when DH was injured Washy and Hadley played there and the distribution from dummy half was abismal. With the big money signings a low key player would probably be all we could hope for tbf

I like Cunningham to be honest. Offers cover at both half back and hooker. I think he’s decent as well. Better than Litten IMO.

Danny's brain isn't quick enough to play 13, he is a solid defensive hooker, he is not Richard Swain imho.

Depends what you want from your 13, most teams now dont play with a old fashioned 13.

What Houghton does with the ball in hand is massively underrated and most only notice when he doesn't play.

Had some spells at 13, when he has played there.

you must be watching a different game, Houghton is not creative, he's a tackle machine. He certainly isn't a 13.
