That’s because of a deal which would help us financially, or is it Connor causing the disruption in the dressing room you posted a few days back, please elaborate.


He just strikes me as being a divisive character on the pitch. Off the pitch he seems ok, nice kid around the club, but on the pitch when it appears to not be going right, he looks like a bit of a problem

One thing is for sure, there is certainly something wrong in our club, if it’s true, they are arguing at half time in a match environment, we are the opposite of a team together, no wonder there’s no spirit, no fight, it’s terrible really, it strengthens my opinions that a stronger personality needs to replace Brett.

On the pitch he's frustrated because he cares and doesn't like losing. Not sure that could be said for some of his team mates.

Really?

Why couldn’t Jake play at Loose Forward? He’s the best ball handler we have.

Or do you think we would better to continue playing some of our Prop Forwards there?

I'm in two minds, if he is dead set on leaving after next season, do we Cash in now, although think that would be the final straw for some fans and have we left it two late to replace him.

Hilarious some of the posts saying let him go.

The kid gives a toss, unlike some Hull born lads, I noticed Connor became a scapegoat not so long back when he argued with some of the golden Hull brigade on the pitch when they weren't pulling their weight or giving a toss.

The kids quality he wants to win, and. Good on him for voicing his opinions when others are making a mockery of wearing the shirt. Isn't that what Gale was brought into do????

If Canberra hadn’t pulled out of the deal then he would have been on his way at the end of the season.
I’ve stated previously that he still wants out and that’s because he wants to win trophies and has said he doesn’t see that happening here.

Like has been said, he at least shows he cares and can’t really blame him for wanting to move on given what’s going on at the club.

It isn't just Hull fans, other fans are obsessed with him, hard to remember an over analysed player, misses ones tackle videos and comments all over social media, other players do the same and hardly a mention. Connors temperament comes from frustration with playing with poor players or poor attitudes.

I wish we had more players who cared as much as he did.

I'd keep him for another year and if he goes whenour of contract to a club with a better chance of winning something he would go with my best wishes.

Connor is our best player. He is irreplaceable.

Ideally he'd be a 6 but I do like him at "Loose Centre". He can defend there quite well, he is an excellent kick target/defender, he is dangerous close to the line, he can create breaks in midfield and he can wander about when we have the ball and cause trouble.

As for Loose Forward, anyone there has to tackle props. That's why we spell our 13s because all that defending is tiring. We can't have our best ball player getting beaten up and spending half the game getting his breath back.

Had to be 6 or maybe 13, has to play in the middle and get his hands on the ball as much as possible.

Defence isn't bad when playing in the line, just two slow when defending at FB.
.
Also allow Hoy to play FB, who I think could be devastating in SL from FB with his pace and running game.
