Hope dont turn out to be another green we seam to have a soft side and give guys chance who nobody else wants maybe because there cheap.
If he wasn’t good enough he’d be on his way like green, crossley if he’s done a trial and signed he’s more likly to be a foster.
And how do you now that he as only played ten minutes in freindly. think some people have got tinted glasses on over this signing as usual .nobody nows how good hes going to be till he actually plays for us not even Powell. Thats why i said hope dont turn out like green .Same people on here also said green was good signing before he played a game .You cant say somebody going to be like foster before hes played a game that is tinted optimism hope he is like.

Always rated clarkson and if it wasn’t for the ‘golden generation’ at Leeds would’ve probably still been there along with McShane and Gale.

Whilst the jury is out on him, I think people are probably positive about this signing because he’s spent 6 weeks with the lads so Powell has said yes to him after experiencing him in training during that period. Green didn’t have a trial (forgive me if I am wrong) so was signed up more blindly.

Flow.
No trying to be an expert on grammar especially after a few.
I admit that I have have tinted glasses.
Short on bodies, good past track record.
Some how fallen from grace.
Resonates with some of the team he's joined.
I don't think our coaching personnel lack objectively!
They have made more astute signings than any of their contemporaries.
Taken a small town in Wakefield to be genuine contenders.
No mean feat in the modern era.
I have watched Cas for a decade or four(a late starter)
In all those years we have never been a team who is as consistently feared by the opposition as we have been in recent years.
I would rather be an optomist proved wrong than a pessimist proved right.
My optomist has in general served me well.
I believe certain tinted specs help those with dyslexia.
However there are some so blind they cannot see.

Didn't do nothing special but played solid enough. Definitely a solid back up but a full fit McMeekan and Jesse is our best back row. Foster and Clarkson as the back ups we must be real happy with.

Spot on. Nothing special, did his job.
Thought jesse was outstanding. Second row is by far his best position, caused London load of problems down the right.

I'd hazard a guess hoggy will get his starting spot back when he's fit

Bit like Alex Foster when he first joined the club?? I’ve high hopes for CC to be a regular in the 17 come seasons end....

Forgot about Oggy to be honest but yes you may be right even though I would still have Meeks and Jesse above him.

Jesse may possibly go back to playing prop/back row from the bench.

If we ever get back to a full compliment in the forwards DP has some major decisions to make:
Watts
Millington
Moors
Cook
Clark
Jesse
McMeekan
Oggy
Foster
Clarkson
Massey
Milner

12 players there to fit into 5 spots and 3/4 bench spots. All them 12 are all good enough to be in the 17 too. Amazing.
