Perhaps brings a sense of perspective (and yes I know stats don’t always tell the full story, but they seem pretty consistent)

Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Similar to the rhinos signing Derrell Olpherts.

It's a back that will make good yards out of backfield, win a few pens , win some 6 agains and generally get you on the front foot. Probably a steady Eddie and might make some handling errors. Again, like Olpherts.

It's a funny one and I understand why coaches like these players compared to a flying youth team winger who might be quicker and score more eye catching tries but won't make the same impact returning the ball in their younger years as they're not physically at their peak, like Qareqare at Cas for example.

I feel short term vision is OK but potentially negatively impacting the longer game. Saints did it fine with makinson the battering ram and Grace the pace.
"I'm sorry, but I would hope that we would beat Cas with a 1 day turnaround."

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

We really have turned into a comedy club.
Even more baffling than the return of Blythe, a few years ago.

As I've said for years, ANY youth players we have (unless they're the reincarnation of Ellery Hanley) , may as well leave.

I think we once claimed Basil Richards was the 'new Hanley'. Pretty much a comedy club back then. I've just been in St.bens club and they had a re-run of the 2009 Cup final playing on the big screen. I've just had to watch the likes of morley, Briers, King, monaghan, Westwood etc playing for us a few hours after hearing we've re-signed matty Russell! What on earth has happened to this club? It's not as if we're skint.

I don’t think he’s that bad as a back up winger, but he’s just not needed. Potentially taking a spot away from Thewlis, Wrench, Thewlis, Lynch. If we didn’t have Minikin I could come to terms with this signing, (and I think Russell is better than Minikin). But his cap value should have been added to the pot to bring in the best centre we can afford - a position we are really short in.

Hopefully Ashton and Thewlis don’t get injured otherwise our back line will be:

Dufty
Minkin
Mata’utia
Ratchford
Russell

Blimey ... with the clean slate theme in mind ... he looks a useful boy to have around. Those who do nothing but moan will have their fun. The rest will wait and see.

To be honest we did well to get him. Saints, Wigan, Catalans and a couple of top NRL clubs were in for him given his record and all round game.

People trying to defend this signing are part of the problem. No other top 6 or even top 8 club would touch him(and before anyone starts, I know we finished 11th!). Daryl "I give opportunities to young players" Powell has lost whatever plot he had.

I think you have a very high opinion of an individual supporter’s influence on the club than the reality. Which of course means that you labelling those of us that haven’t donned the sack cloth and ashes as “part of the problem “ is laughable.
Keep up the good work though.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

1% improvement on Minikin :wink:

Not sure how feel about this signing, I can see the pros and cons to both sides. Yes he’s an experienced winger, makes a lot of meters and difficult to tackle but remember how poop he was at the tail end of his last stint with us. Whether he was fumbling behind his own line, out of position from a kick in behind or completely miss-reading an opposition attack and punching out the line.. I just hope he’s improved on those fundamentals.

Take Dufty, Thewlis & Ashton out that back line it looks more like we are planning for the championship then the top 4..

Sometimes it’s that extra 1% that someone can put in, that makes a difference.

Clean slate.
In Powell we trust.
