Very good player, defensively sound and can score a try.

Not flashy but does the basics very well.

Similar profile to Blair when he signed for us.For all the good service of the released players and many were fan favourites we seem to have finally learnt that size matters in RL. We have been too nice as a team for a long time but we look a good mix of size and aggresion now.

Don’t know much about him beyond what i’ve read today, but these signings feel like the club making good on their plans. Most optimistic, i’ve been in a while.

If we can add another half at the level of a Drinkwater or a Lui, then mid-table respectability looks very realistic. I think the key thing is that we’re not writing off a chunk of games against teams with stronger packs as more or less unwinnable now, having added the likes of Garbutt, Lannon and Joel Tomkins.

This coming season may be a bedding in season in that for all the good signings and Addy/Lawler back it's a lot of turnover in players.If the new half is of similar level as Linnett then who knows how we will go but the foundations look very impressive? Get Quinlan back fit and then our aims may be a bit higher?

It's a good question, and certainly gives us some options. I wouldn't be surprised to see

Vaivai
linnet
Keinhorst/crooks
Shaw/hall

Left edge would be devastating, right edge solid. I like vaivai in centre mind, can get his winger away a lot. Although his defence gets a working over which isn't his strongest suit. Decisions!



Could even be the plan to play him more as a running 2nd row like Tomkins

Vaivai
Keinhorst
Linnet

Tomkins
crooks
Shaw/hall

They both look solid, left edge linking could be fantastic...?

Apparently Linnett wouldn't get a game over at FC and they are top 4 material? This squad that is taking shape under Sheens is looking good on paper. I'm sure there will be a few setbacks but you can see the potential and the intent to progress.

I don't watch all that much NRL these but I have seen him have a few good games for Scotland, and you don't play nearly 200 NRL games if you don't have something about you. I think he is a decent signing on paper, but as with all overseas signings you never quite know until they get here.

However, and I am trying to set aside my Hull FC bias here, I agree that he wouldn't get in Hull's first 17. Is he better than Tuimavave or Connor (our likely first choice centres)? From what I have seen, no. Unless he is a decent back row? In which case he probably would. I know he's a big lad but I have never seen him play there.

Turned down 2 year deal with Leeds to join Rovers.
I couldn't hear the robin sing if not for you.

No that can't be right? He's bang average and not fit to pull up Carlos's socks.
