I make it that is eight props we have on the books now, including loans.
Makes you wonder if one or two are on the way out.

I suspect Lawrence may retire and Doro will no doubt sign for a super league club. It is such a shame to see Doro leave if the rumours are true.

Will go one way or the other. Has the ability to tear the league apart and still only 23. Up to him where his career goes from here.Just hope it isn't one of those signings championship clubs make and end up being a disaster.

As usual, the moronic fans chime in. We're going bust again. Why do we sign players when we've got an academy. Thick as mince!

This one's giving me Lauaki vibes. I watched Pele play for Hull and he was a complete liability. I hope the club know what they're doing...

Could be a real asset if he can control himself especially at Championship level. If he’s going around knocking players heads off he will spend more time banned than on the pitch. EOC seems to like a bit of mongrel in his players so hopefully he can coach some control and discipline into Pele. Time will tell with this signing, but there is definitely some investment going into the squad right now.

Yeah. I’ve watched him for Hull a couple of times. Sometimes goes missing in defence but always powerful with ball in hand. Might just be environment as Hull has been a troubled club this season. Hopefully EOC can lift him

seen a rumour Pele has already signed for Huddersfield for next year.
Re: Franklin Pele Signs : Wed Jun 19, 2024 9:32 pm  
I too get the Lauaki vibe. He was from Hull as well and an absolute dud. Jury is out.
Re: Franklin Pele Signs : Thu Jun 20, 2024 7:45 am  
Well I was livid when we signed Okunbor. But he's been solid if unspectacular.
Feel more confident about Pele, and unlike Lauaki he does actually use his weight to be a wrecking ball. Only 23. I think the season and setup at Hull could have ruined any career and looks like they're having a complete clean out there. If he gets some confidence back with us, it could be a shrewd signing.

Or we could get a lazy, arrogant Lauaki x2 who thinks he's too good the the division and isn't as good as he actually is and ends up being a waster.
