Lunt has been awesome but he's too crocked now (crying shame)

Lee is average

Addy is just plain awful, not just at hooker but Sheens doesn't see it

Lawler has played there in past years but Sheens doesn't see it

Atkin is too smaller but is fast and creative (but not perfect)

Has to be Atkin for me I think Lunt should retire

Atkin provided a spark last night, that little bit of speed at dummy half was what we was crying out for. As has been said, Addy is too slow, Lawler passes too slow, Lee is bang average and thats why he's been at 85 clubs and unfortunatly it looks like Lunts had it, when he's fully fit there's no doubting his quality but will he ever get back to full fitness.
If we can get Parcell in as has been rumoured it could turn our season around, not sure Leeds would do a relegation rival a favour though

I have said this on another website,

McShane

Roby

Dwyer

Parcel

Clarke

Hookers that are killing and terrifying teams with there runs from dummy half. This has been our problem all season and has cost us points IMO. But that idiot Sheens still sticks other players there that are NOT natural hookers. Lets hope Ford has sorted this when that pile of trash goes :SHOOT:

Tbf, he knows and said we need a hooker (and a prop) after the game on Friday.

We don’t have any fit natural hookers at the moment. After what happened to Lunt at the end of last season, he’s very understandably listening to his body more. Hopefully Lee isn’t too far away but we’re not far off the point when it’ll feel like time is running out to make much of a difference.

I really liked ZDC when he was with rovers. Thought he was a decent hooker and didn't want to see him leave. Far better than Lee and Addy imo.

I liked him with the ball, which is when I tend to notice individual players. I saw suggestions that his tackling wasn’t great though. Only 22 when he left, so if it hadn’t been for him being non-fed, I’d guess we might have persisted with him a bit longer.

He’s playing for Manly’s NSW cup team now, according to Wikipedia.

I'd be happy if the Parcell rumour turns out to be true...though can't really see Leeds letting him go - unless they have someone else lined up. Only ever seen Parcell on TV or when visiting craven park. Good player.

Wasn't James Cunningham rumoured to be heading Rovers' way last year or year before? Probably read that on here somewhere. Another good hooker...and East Huller. I'd be happy with that signing...though can't see that one happening either.
