Re: Rocky

Well I will be happy to be shown that he has changed, but he used to be an arrogant bugger with a higher opinion of himself as a player than anyone around him. If he's lost that side of his character, then fair enough... I’ve known him and coached him for a bit since he was 13 and I’ve never regard...

Re: Rocky

Can't really understand this one. Are things really that bad? Can’t understand we have signed a proven SL player to add depth to the squad and provide cover at 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 & 9. If he was signed to be a starter then I get the point, but he hasn’t so I don’t really get what hard to understand.

Re: Rocky

Other clubs offered him deals including Cas, which may have forced our hand.

Re: Rocky

I used to. Actually, I'm distantly related to him, but that's not how I know/knew him. Well I am amazed if you think he has an ego. He absolutely does not. He’s a cracking down to earth lad and always has been. He wasn’t happy with the way he was being used at Wigan mainly because he was never allo...

Re: Rocky

What a ridiculous situation...is this the level of ambition we are really holding ? Hampshire is an over rated never -really -was, waiting to become a has-been. His ego will have a devastating effect on the younger lads coming into the first team squad this season, and he simply isn't good enough (...

Re: Ryan Hampshire

He will take Hanley’s place in the squad but also offering cover at halves.

Improves the squad and on a 1 year deal with further 2 in our option it really is a good move if a little bit of a surprise.

Re: Owen Farrell

Did George Burgess put bums on seats Has French or Field put bums on seats. Did Andy Powell? None of those have/had the same profile/reputation as Owen Farrell, plus he is a local lad who has reached the top in Rugby Union. He may have that desire to play for his home town club, time will tell but ...

Re: Whitehaven v Wigan - this weekend!

Keith Mason really loves himself doesn't he? Look at that picture 😅😅 Complete clown . Sounds like one of parents who put that much pressure on their son to succeed they are doomed for failure . Trying to put pressure on the lad and the club in this way is stupid . Wish the lad well though (despite ...

Re: Owen Farrell

I think if a move were ever to happen it would need to be after the Union World Cup next year meaning for the 2025 season. I don’t see him coming before that and at 33/34 you may get 2 seasons out of him. He’s a player that looks after himself and playing at 10 in Union he won’t have taken as much h...
