He will have to show a dramatic improvement over what he has shown at NRL level.

I think you're seriously overrating our competition if you believe that.

Iys probably a reason he's coming over here to be fair.

If he has 2/3 good seasons here, he can use us as a spring board back to the NRL.

Does well in the NSW Cup, attacking wise. Just don't let him kick goals.

Nope not at all, people have the NRL on this pedestal for some reason. It’s as though if you’ve played there you must be something special.

But when you look at players like French lovodua who's hardly played over there

But I agree not everyone who plays in the Nrl is top class infact there's many average players ( like any league )

But I think hoy looks a real find fingers crossed

No one as far as know has destroyed Shaul at all, he was supported when he broke in to the team. Unfortunately Father Time has caught up with him and especially following his ACL injury. There’s no room for sentiment and as a club we have being guilty of that for too long. Without the pace he once had Shaul just doesn’t have enough about his game.


ACL injury is what worries me about Trueman.
We have seen with Shaul and Bowden how it effected their careers
Trueman is younger but Shaul and Bowden were not old and both never recovered their form and Shaul his pace.

Agree about Joey but French was a real attacking threat at NRL level and had a crazy try-scoring rate over there.

Its a worry when any player gets a significant injury especially one that would have been career ending not that long ago. The advantage for Truman is he is younger than both Shaul & Bowden and that he has more about his game than just pace.
Fingers crossed he makes and full and speedy recovery but it just seems to be the our luck as we'd no sooner signed McIntosh last season and he was then out for the season with his Achilles.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!

We should declare interest in McShane this week and he will probably pull a muscle in training :lol:

Short of having Mystic Meg on board, every signing is a risk. Every player we sign deserves to be given a chance to show what they can do although many on here are ready to dish them before they've even arrived. Some of our recent signings are really encouraging and I think it shows the way that BH wants to take the team. Just one or two of the old guard to move on and I think (and hope) that better things are on the way.
