You can say what you like about Bibby, but his strike rate speaks for itself.

Did anyone watch the after match analysis by Wells?
Basically said “Give me an argument why not to play Hardaker at fullback”

Carney, “Bevan French”

Wells, “If the rumours are half true then he’ll be playing in the halves in the not so distant future” (All said with a half smile and slight awkwardness in the studio)

This is from guys who actually hear what’s happening first hand.
Doubt Wells knows in ins and outs of deals happening due to his role, it would allow Cas the ability to snipe players and that doesn't seem to happen to often.

Why?
That’s what Jon Wells was eluding to on the after match analysis. I’m not saying it’s true but it’s unusual for sky sports to mention rumours.........I hope he’s just clutching at straws

Meds, I do enjoy some of your posts, but this is getting a bit childish now.

Nobody has mentioned smithies yet...... outstanding tonight from the young man...... never stopped hitting up and tackling like his life depended on it...... this lad is a starter and no way a sub( he only seems to give daft pens when he comes off the bench)...... after watching the game proper after work ive realised , not only is fifita a pain in the arse( if he can ever keeps his shorts on), but hes forever niggling anyone who dares tackle him..... he never ever plays the ball(even when he does get to his feet to play it)....... and my favourite tactic is his ability to always grab the defenders shirt and make it look like hes being held down
IF YOU STRIKE ME DOWN I WILL BECOME MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE

Go on then I’ll mention Morgan. I think he is a top class forward who will go on to play for England. He would be nailed on to play in my team every week. We have a group of young forwards who could go on and dominate this competition, all we need is a prop forward who makes metres for fun.

I may be in the minority but I also believe that Byrne has got a massive future. He struggled at the end of last season but I think that was down to illness. He has really impressed me this season.

Playing in the halves over who?

Who covers Zak at centre?

Instead of Hastings if the rumours of his departure are correct...
