Wow his is never a 6/7 position, I watched tonight's game v Wigan and he seemed to thrive in that position, he needs a good run at numbers 1

With a player like Jake, just get him on the pitch, wherever he plays. He''s one of the best players in competition at making things happen. When he get the ball, he puts the opposition on edge and the spectators on the edge of their seats.

That's what Sneyd said last week - not bothered where he plays.

Don't be too harsh on him. It's been an another difficult season for the Robins and the boy needs some closure. Part of the healing process.

Five year plan still on track.

Don’t forget they once took a short kick off and instantly became the most innovative rugby league side ever.
Just missed out on honours this season, but Rovers should win the lot next season!

At fullback though he has more space to work with and way more freedom than just standing on the right side of the pitch when at 6 given the way we play with split halfbacks.

Its not a knock on Shaul but he just doesn't have the skill set to play fullback in our current attacking structure.

Brilliant analogy of why Shaul, is not suited to our style of play.
He is more suited to the 80/90's, whereby the Ball playing 13 would create gaps in the middle, and his support play would be more effective.
This is one of the reasons,I feel we need a coach from outside Hull.
For mine, he was an automatic pick, If the coach is from Hull, sometimes the team structure, should take precedence ahead of any player's birthplace.
