He’s contracted for the next 2 seasons, i very much doubt we will be signing another hooker in this time, especially with O’Neill emerging.

How highly rated is the lad and, I know this sounds stupid, but did he wear #9 in the reserve GF? The reason I ask, is because of how big he looked for a hooker. Maybe it was the camera angle, but he looked comparable in size to the other big lads in the side.

Think that was Toby Brannan who is a big prop/loose forward. Him and Forber played loose forward and hooker but Forber wore 13 and Brannan 9 for some reason (maybe shirt sizes given the difference between them). Forber isn’t the biggest from what I’ve seen but looks a prospect.

That makes sense. I thought our 9 looked ridiculously large for a hooker.

Yeah, you would think the Wardle deal would go through in the next few days if it’s set in stone, potentially even today? Although they might think Bibby deserves a day to potentially take thanks from the fans before being over shadowed by an incoming?

I believe that he has got an excellent deal for himself.
I would if possible liked to have retained him as a squad player.
Good luck to the lad.
