As an opposition fan Connor is quite brilliant to watch. Wish there were more players like that in SL…..

Re: Jake Connor : Thu Apr 14, 2022 7:58 am  
As a Huddersfield supporter I was sad to see Jake leave the club. He had to move I think to play with better players and a bigger club. I watched a compilation of Jermaine Mcgillvary tries they put on Giants TV for his 300th appearance and Jake supplied plenty of those for him either at Centre or full back. There are not too many English players like Jake in super league at the moment a guy who can play off the cuff make things happen out of nothing, he is willing to take a chance and back his own ability to do the unusual and he has the skill to back it up he also has the confidence and arrogance to perform to a high standard and get under the oppositions skin and disrupt them and their game plan. I hope he will be around for a while to come at your club or elsewhere as I always enjoy watching him play, even against the Giants.

I applaud your comments :CLAP:

Good to read such things from the opposition.

But great players like Jason Smith Paul Sculthorpe sean long Jamie lyon Andy farrell keiron cunningham did it against the best

Connor doesn't do it against the best he always flops in the games that matter

Hes a bell end, he's petulant, a wind up merchant, too slow blah blah blah

Hes also great to watch, creates tries from nothing and has opponents bricking it, I agree with the poster above that it's a shame there isn't more players like him in SL.

Hopefully he wakes up this morning with 24hr diarrhoea ;)

He might not be the best player ever, or lacks pace or whatever. But, I can assure you, ever SL team on their tactical meetings and tip sheets, will be finding a way to stop Jake as their number 1 priority - whether that be rushing up on him, preventing field position, slowing the PTB etc. Not one of our other players would be given such attention.

I agree with this. He's far from the perfect player but he brings skills that few have with the jeopardy of not knowing whether he'll show up, and is a character that gets people talking - not too many of them around.
