Powell doesn’t offer that, never has
He did when we scored the first try of the second half at Leeds, it was a great move.

He must be a class hooker then?
Makes me laugh when people make comments like that.

Makes me laugh with yours & others who make these sort of comments too. Can’t all be super dooper rugby players. No respect for any of our players!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

You’re absolutely right Josie.
So there’s no other hookers out there for us? We stick with Powell? Also Josie but how am I disrespecting him? I don’t rate him as a PLAYER and that’s my prerogative. That’s what people get wrong in here, I’m criticising his ability as a player not what he’s like in person

My beef is that O'Neill doesn't offer much of a point of difference compared to Powell. So I'd like to see Forber given a shot.

I do agree O’Neill is a better Powell rather than offering a different style
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure

Where did I say he was a class hooker, I was simply correcting your inaccurate post. It makes me laugh when people post comments that are totally untrue.

That’s fair enough you are obviously entitled to your opinion, but that is not what you posted!

Ok I should have worded my first message abit better. But what I meant was with comments that make me laugh is that we all know that Powell is known from not running from the PTB, if you say different your lying, but then you come out and say well he did that run that provided that try, which he did, but it’s not a common occurrence though is it?

I agree he is not renowned for running from DH and no it is not a common occurrence.
