Amazing that Leeds in the same position as us have signed a big tough Aus prop and say 4 more players to come , they seem to fill spots and we look on in envy at new players coming in to strengthen their team. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
A big tough Aussie prop. Like Frank Paul the wrecking ball you mean.?
Took a big chunk of our cap and did jack s**t
It's halves and three quarters we need to look at the NRL for. They seem to churn them out all the time whereas over here we always seem to be lacking in these areas. That's where they've killed us in the international game for years.
he never missed a game or a tackle or took a back step, just what we need....

Beg to differ the Ausies beat us up in the forwards for many years til the Burgess Brothers came on the scene in recent years , we had Hanley / Edwards / Gregory / Offia in the back line and still got beaten up by their forwards . Anyone who understands rugby will see the result of big powerful forwards by watching the Castleford second half when all the good work by the backs was undone by the lack of forward power .
I dunno, we matched the Aussies in the forwards in the 80's. The difference was Meninga

Atkin? Sounds like a Modern Wigan signing.
Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me to be honest!
