Mago to Wakefield/Featherstone??

Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

Surely the expected first chance goes to Harvie Hill?

In fact there is probably more of a case for Lam to be off quota than Tommy.
I think its because he was playing full time here at 19, it was said "a player who was not trained by an RLEF (Rugby League European Federation) member club for three years before the age of 21" , I dont think they thought people would challenge them on being st pats u14's

The rule is not fit for purpose, change it.

Tommy was given some sort of dispensation, seeing that this forum has many people who follow the game closely and we aren't 100% sure how it works :)

Yorkshire Saint on twitter recons JWH is going to Catalan. Claims he spoke to him after a game.

One thing for sure is we’ve admitted mago was a bad signing. Ellis is in the failed section atm. Thornley can have his own section. How come saints have barely made a bad signing in the last 5 years. Who’s identifying some of these players. Ellis was poor at dragons. Thornley awful at Leigh as well. Miski takes a quota for a back up winger ??

Pretty much agree with these assesments.

Seemed to be carrying an injury from the start TBH. At least Thornly got injured after a couple of good games. Mago has had some good moments but too few, Ellis has been been OK in a few games, never outstanding. For balance, French and Field have bee very good and Cust has been solid.

Never rated him myself anyway but had a good game vs us at magic. That’s 1 questionable signing
