Could have had Litten, but Radford messed that up.


I'm not that fussed about the Litten deal, but it's certainly an area that has lacked investment.

Denive should be the next cab of the rank at 9, and can be helped by Hookem and Joey.

we seem incapable of finding young local halfs.when we signed sneyd in 2015,whatever his faults ,it was the first time for a few years we had a number 7.very rarely injured or in trouble with the disciplinary.from 2015 till 2021 we had a settled scrum half,during those 6 years it gave us the perfect time to gradually groom a young number 7 to take over when sneyd departed.2021 sneyd leaves.have we groomed a young local number 7?.no we sign a well past his best 33 year old .says it all for me.i cant remember last time we had a local scrum who held the position for any length of time.probably phil windley from the 1990s.

We had an excellent young scrum half who practically beat Wakey on his own on debut but Peter Sharpe roasted him for moving out of his defensive box :CRAZY: Then sold him on, probably led to his career stall. Recently retired. Anthony Thackeray.

A really good Championship player. I don't think his lack of opportunities in Super League were because he got told off once by his coach.

Our next scrum half was supposed to be MacNamara but it's not working out so far and his back injury is a big blow. If he can recover from that then he might be our future 7.

On Saturday we can see how Hookem does after last week's snoozefest. We can't be much worse ... can we?

Could be any number of things.

A lot happens to kids between 17 and 20. To be a Superleague player requires exceptional physical and mental attributes. While kids might show potential, that is no guarantee that they will reach it.

Good coaching can help. I wonder what the success rate in Australia is from turning academy kids into NRL players. And I wonder how that compares with SL teams.

I think McNamara is a lot better than people on here give him credit for.

Think he would be surprised to read that he is retired, seen as though he is still scoring and assisting most of Sheffield's tries this year! :lol:

He is retiring at the end of the season though!

Also, sometimes it is a players choice not to be full time, and turn down advances of SL clubs - especially if their day job is pretty lucrative and a SL contract wouldn't match it
