Chris Green, Hull FC prop? If so he’s 30 years old, 17 stone, 6ft 3 inches tall. Did his Achilles in 2018.

Why can't we sign a younger prop, say 25/26 with his best years ahead of him?

Or even Dan Murray, a Wigan lad, on loan at HKR from Salford? Although I can't understand why Salford keep putting him out on loan? 🤔
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.

that takes a lot of courage.

You just advocated the attempt to re-sign Hock on the Hock tretirement thread. Whilst I am completely uninspired by our recruitment, other than Hastings, Green has played in Super League regularly, is 5 years younger and is performs to a higher standard than Hock between 33-34 years of age which is when I assume we made the attepmt.

Escare won’t play again unless he does a lot of grovelling. When told he was not in the team in Spain he told the coach to f@@@ @ff.
Where do you get this sh*te from? 🤔And you've gone off topic!
Off topic, half the topic is about escare . Not sh*te - fact. If you don’t want to believe it don’t.

I didn't advocate signing Hock! I said it was a "gesture" from Rads not that he should have gone through with it!

Apologies about the "off topic" remark. I still don't believe the other comment.

Although this is the rumours section & lots of sh*te does get spouted 😂

He was rumoured last year for us wasn't he? Slipped down the pecking order with Walmsley & Thompson.

He's 32

I hadn’t realised he was that old. I also like Green, from what I have seen of him. Radford likes his props to be naturally big and direct, which is what we lack. I wonder whether Wane had a preference for bulked up second rowers because that was what he was as a player, while Radford goes for naturally big lads as they fit his mould...

Wane was a prop forward shirt number 10 😊
