Signed for us on a 2 year deal for next year. What can we expect of him?

Decent player. Bit of a late bloomer and probably still got some improvement in him even at 26.

Runs well and has a trick in him. Sometimes over plays and has the odd rick in him too.

Hasn’t had much of a chance this season with the arrival of Drinkwater. He became the blindingly obvious solution to all our problems for some as Sheens time in charge drifted towards its end. Now he’s leaving, those more aware of his limitations will probably point them out more often.

If you retain one of Lui or Hastings, or get someone else at that level he could support them well. Probably not ready to be a dominant half in a SL team - but to be fair he might flourish with extra responsibility... never can tell.

Saw tonight exactly why Tim Sheens treated him the way he did. Overrated player by the fans. And a target in defense.

Funny as last season he was talked about by Rovers fans as a top SL player, even this season at the start there was outcry at his limited game time. Now suddenly he has signed for another club he is awful, whilst Drinkwater seems to escape the critisim in comparison to Atkin. Drinkwater is living off 5/6 game purple patch last season, not worth a quota spot or rumoured high salary.

Abdul is an excellent signing, probably as good a signing as anyone has made for next year if he can continue his form and keep the weight off in the off season.

We look much better at long range attacks. If we have to play the ball within their 10 we look clueless. Halfbacks are to blame (both of them) and Hooker.

London's last try had a hand underneath but the 4 players tackling should have done more. They got lucky with the earlier one with the simultaneous grounding. All the decisions went their way.

Abdul isn't a world beater but he's better than both of our HBs. I still think Drinkwater is terrible, mainly n the basis that he's an Aussie on a big wage and taking up an overseas spot. Cooks also had a mare.

New lads went OK as did Quinlan, Hall, Linnett. Crooks should have backed himself when he broke free.

I would not keep drink water he is bloody useless and I would not have told certain players we do not need you next year I would have told them 2 weeks before the end of season it must be at the back of their mind it does not matter they will not be hear now we have to beat hull on this form doubt it

Did you miss:
- London player being pulled back from what looked to be a full lengthier after they said it was two knock ons (it actually hit his leg)
- Missed escort leading to a long break for you, then a try on that set
- London steal it 1 on 1 after your break, made to give it back (think you then scored on that set)
- Incorrectly said your kick off went 10 and was blown back (not a chance!) before Hauraki knocked it in touch, so London get a scrum rather than the penalty.

The majority of key decisions went against London (not through bias, just honest errors) but they battled through it and won regardless. Don't be a sore loser, it was a cracking game for the neutral.

Atkin. Not a patch on Lui or Hastings in afraid.
Had a shocking season. Terrible kicking game. Richie Myler but without the talent...
