I think it's actually the other way round.
He started at 7 and scored a try every game until we moved him to hooker.
Good to have his distribution but I think we would have seen more from him at 7. A bit like Lino in playing style.


On that, I've previously thought that Lino would be more suited to playing at 9 as he's not the organiser we were led to believe he was. But apparently he refused to play there according to Poching. I know Lino has a fair few fans, but I've been quite underwhelmed to be honest.

Big change to play at hooker. You need to build up your bulk/strength as you take a battering in the middle.
I can see why he wants to remain a 7.
You can switch, but you can't easily keep switching.

Did Matt Peterson come over with a big rep for you lot? Remember him being pretty rank.

Sorry for bringing up bad memories :lol:

Is there a player you wouldn't convert to a 9? :?

He wasn't brought to Trinity to play at 9.
Just because WP said he asked him, I'm with Mason on that one

Liam Kay.

Steve Mcnamara & Bobby Goulding.

Both were tosh.... Goulding only turned up when he played Alfie Langer off the park at Wilderspool.

That said, neither of them were getting paid so I suppose they could be excused for being disappointing.

Turned us down once but we still went back to sign him!
That CC semi-final, enough said!

He certainly made a difficult task even harder. Some poor goalkicking didn't help either.

Someone has already mentioned Aaron Whitaker but he wasn't bad and better than David Bailey and Robert Piva.
