Yes having plenty of 'Wakey' in the squad is always a good thing in my book, we even have it in the coaching staff.


Personally I've never really gone for the Wakey bit though I get your point, very few of or best players have been Wakey lads over the last 30 years, unfortunately. I do however go for the youth bit, I do think most players feel something for the club they started with regardless of where they are from.

Lets hope Murphy and his Dad feel some attachment and that the club can offer a fair deal, although I doubt they can match Saints cash for cash.

I reckon we can match Saints for cash :wink:

What we can't currently match them for is long term prospects. If Murphy moves it will be for the latter.

People on here seem awfully convinced that Saints are after Murphy, based it seems on a few posters fevered imaginations. I'm hearing Saints have no interest at present, though this may well change.

The general feeling is that Murphy may be a one season wonder. I don't think he is but I certainly get why that would be the current opinion in the game.

Remember also it's a two way street. If Murphy takes the two year deal we are offering (speculation) right now, he's safe. If he holds out and has a poor season for whatever reason, he may well find himself of no interest to other clubs and at the end of a much reduced Trinity offer to boot. It's not always the clubs who lose out. It's a bit of a poker game at times.

Am I right in thinking Lewis is a Huddersfield lad?

We know he has rejected a contract offer already although it`s still early days, my concern with the Saints interest that has been rumoured is if that is playing into his decision then you would imagine that they have already opened up some kind of conversations, which I`m sure is against the rules of the game?

For some reason, this one doesn`t hurt as much for me, yes, he has massive potential and I think he could very much become one of the top wingers in the league, but at this times it`s almost a case of you can`t miss what you don`t have, although he has had a few very good performances we are not at the stage where he is pivotal to the team IMO. I`d sit down with him and find out 1. If he has genuine interest on staying at the club for the right offer or 2. His mind is made up and he is moving on to the likes of Saints. If it`s the latter, I would seriously consider cashing in now, rather than just getting the mandatory compensation.

Things is why would Saints do that? They only have to wait 5 months or so and they are free to talk to him. No other clubs has been linked with him so it's not as if they need to jumped ahead in the race

If he carries on on the same trajectory, I would imagine every club in the league would be interested should he be available, potentially even some NRL interest.

I would not trust Saints one inch , if they fancied signing Murphey they would not abide by the rules and would have nipped in early long before now. Maybe other clubs out there are more honourable and are waiting for the official time to make their move.
I am with Homme Vaste on this one, have a frank conversation and if he is not interested put him on the market now. This would kindle interst from other clubs and at least we would get some compensation.

I am not suggesting Murphey would not give us his all for this season, but i have seen too many times in the past of players moving on and just going through the motions. Plus we have plenty of wing cover.

So we have a great talent and after 1 season we have people looking to sell him on.
I'm glad Carter doesn't have that attitude.

Read the post, i suggested, have a frank conversation and IF he has decided to move on and cant be persuaded to stay. Dont stand in his way and put the clubs interst first. Whats wrong with that.

Any interest from Saints will depend on how successful Ritson is this year, I expect him to be a revelation in super league and will make his move from Barrow permanent.
