He did something similar in the championship last year for Swinton and someone whacked him, didn't see him much after that.

As good of a player as he is and could be refs will eventually wise up to it and the penalties will go the other way.


We’ll see but he looks a master of his craft to me. He’s winding the opposition up, not the other way round and there’s probably two things that could happen. He either gets an opposition player penalised (or worse) or an opposition player legally belts him (which hasn’t happened so far).

FWIW i would much rather he concentrated on being a very good and very promising rugby league player than the 'antics'. He has got a reputation already and has put a big target on his back saying 'smash me' It is a very unusual trait to have, seems hell bent on winding the opposition up. I know young lads are cocky and young rugby league players in particular. Takes a while to mature if at all. He doesn't need to do it for me. Let his rugby do the talking.

People go on about how there are no hard men in rugby anymore, then disapprove when a young prop throws his weight around a bit. I'm sure Fielden, Morley, McDermott etc all did far worse coming through the ranks. Cas fans crying about a 21 year old ruffling up their player's hair are priceless, god knows what they said in the 80s when it seemed to be like the wild west at times from what I can gather. Putting a target on your back can be a good distraction for the opposition as well. Back when Bailey was good, he used to do that. I remember our lads totally losing their heads in a play off game because of him, think it was 04.

I disagree, he’s a limited player when it comes to running a ball but he’s brilliant in defence and he’s found a role in the side by setting a tempo and ruffling feathers. He’s a young kid and will chill out over time but we can’t curb that side if him or else he won’t be half the player. He’s like Micky Mac was at 20/21 and it’s helping him forge a career. If he’s happy to carry a target on his back then great. Him getting people to target him won’t do anybody else any harm.

I think you are spot on there Nicky. Take the niggle out of his game and he wouldn't be as effective. I don't remember him giving away many penalties either.

Shithouserry?
Whens this because I've missed it?
That describes to me someone who's eye gouged, punched someone on the floor, from behind, dropped knees, hed butted, forearmed or bitten someone.
Not a 20/21 year old lad who's done no more than run as hard as he can, hits as hard as he can and tried to show some of the older heads in SL that hes prepared to go Toe to Toe with them and not take a backward step.
His actual ability isnt all that currently, so fair play to him for "Having a go" and him and Smithies are doing nothing more than having a good crack.

PS
Watch how he puts smithies in for the last try. Just as the precious tackle is being completed hes already telling Byrne to run and where Smithies needs to be (he says something to him that I cant quite make out).

PPS

Previous poster says went missing etc.
Not sure how taking the next hit up, makes numerous tackles and then a few minutes later is setting up the final try.

He’s certainly no coward. A kid who’d just been hammered by three Cas defenders with a 4th trying to knee drop him had no problem taking the next carry in after the penalty.

He’s a joy to watch for me and takes me back to some of my favourite players like Micky Mac and Terry Newton.

Spot on Jukes.
No foul play just playing it hard.
I love it. The 3 youngsters are great to watch even though they are far from the finished article. Their desire and work rate is fantastic to witness and has made my visits to the jjb enjoyable again.

It’s that aggression that really brings a smile to your face as a fan. We’ve produced some talented forwards over the years, such as Mossop, Prescott and even Sutton (to a lesser extent) but I’ve always felt we were experts at producing forwards who seem like thoroughly decent human beings but there’s nothing like natural aggression on the field, especially when you’re playing in the middle.
