I remember French playing for Parra; he was lightning quick, but it seems like ages ago now, and they have a very good full-back in Gutherson.

In what capacity though?

French has never played half at senior level and is either a winger or full back - unless this is another project signing

Does this mean the rumour surrounding Hardaker has some truth to it?

Hope so, Get one decent season out of Hardaker and move him on so he can implode at another club, From what I've seen of Bev he's a proper tasty get

I welcome his arrival Derrick, I think he has the X factor. The fans have been after some excitement, Frenchy will certainly provide it.

Be happy if this is confirmed just need a couple of top forwards to play behind. Smithies and Partington have helped. Flower Clubb and Lockers are missing to many games.

Can't understand why we'd be after French. If it's for this season then maybe the injuries to our wingers would make it worthwhile but it's forwards we need and signing a big money winger before getting a forward in won't make a shred of difference.

If it's for next season it makes even less sense. We've got an expensive fullback who has been playing well so signing another expensive fullback would be mad in a salary cap sport. In Burgess, Manfredi, Davies, Marshall and Bibby that's 5 wingers already signed up!

There's no reason at all to sign French unless Hardaker is leaving or at least 2 of our wingers are going. Makes no real sense at all.
