The stats have always confirmed that he is difficult to tackle and that he makes hard yards.
In his best season (at full back) I think he was the best metre maker in the league. (I don't think I've made that up)
We know his strengths & we know his weaknesses.



this was when we were all getting ratty (mussell) because our attack consisted of, scoot from russell, scoot from ratch, scoot from clark, and repeat.

We were totally "scoot mad" at the time. Mind you we could have done with one or two of those scoots last season.

Elite

Have you googled "Elite" for the definition?

He's an improvement on Josh Charnley, and now we're stuck with him. :roll:

Considering how low we must be on cap, I think Russell is a coup in contrast, we aren’t going to get anyone better for the money.
We at least have some depth in the outside backs now.

I think we are a better squad with him than without him. He had a good WC for Scotland too, so he’s in good shape.


As alway for me at the start of the season, a clean slate. Welcome back Matty.

He had a pretty good 2014 ? campaign IIRC. Was scoring tries and supporting well. Also topped the stats of tackle busts and post contact metres. Then it all went pear shaped. Can't really say i've been impressed with him for Toulous or Scotland. So this definately comes as a surprise.

My problem with clean slate is that he dirtied it here. He's said himself he was overweight (and I think turning up drunk/hungover), we nursed him through that period so as a club, we have a clear conscience. To resign a player who has had issues and has caused the club issues it questionable. Especially seemingly at the expense of youth.

My post by the way is in no way intended to damn Matty to a life of hard labour, i wish him well,.i just would've preferred to wish him.well at Wakefield, not here.

I'm also surprised Powell has taken him considering his end of season interview about attitude etc.

As ever with these things, nobody happier than me if I'm proven wrong but I don't like this signing one bit.

I have no words.

But I do have a keg of my experimental lockdown mulled wine/Harvey's cocktail that is calling me.
