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.

And Tom Forber coming through the system.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

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.

Reading between the lines, this is basically an announcement of an announcement.

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.
