Too slow for me and isn't particularly strong, think wingers need one of those. He wouldn't have scored that try Martin did against Saints. Looks like a low level SL winger, which is what we are trying to move away from.




Luckily its Tony Smith who picks the team and not you. Or are you professing to know than he does.

TRL had some interesting stats early last season regarding speed. Liam Tindall up there.

Surprised about Burgess in third spot.
Would back Johnstone any time in a foot race with Burgess
Naiqama? they must have the wrong reading
What about Bevan French? Would give most of them a yard and still beat them

Burgess is rapid my money would be on him over 100m

Would say field is quicker than French ( just )

Even coaches get things wrong

What a terrible post, might as well stop the forum if we can't disagree with what the coaches do.

Fans not allowed to have an opinion now?

Of course fans can have an opinion but you do seem to be-little posters and come across as a touch arrogant as in I’m right and your wrong.My take on Mackintosh is at beginning of season he was terrible but a spell in reserves,he came back stronger and confident.You mention the Sts game…yes Ritson nearly got him but it wasn’t through diving early,watch mackintosh’s feet,he does the classic wingers step and that’s what causes Ritson to miss,also you haven’t mentioned the Truman try…would our other wingers who you want to try have done what he did to get the ball back in play.End of the day..he was marked as a scapegoat in his 1st season,again in his 2nd season and no doubt this season.I now await a belittling and sarcastic response to this post.

I guess all this Pre Season chat is irrelevant, as we are merging with Salford anyway, and playing out of West Yorkshire

Hopefully mcintosh will be similar to Griffin

As griffins first season with us wasn't great and then came good after

As mcintosh did well towards the end of season to be fair

This will be Mcintosh's third season but I agree after he came back from being dropped he improved a lot.

McIntosh is a confidence player, he's also our best winger...if he's not in the team we look very weak on the wings.
