Obviously a good signing considering the farce cas put on show Saturday. We need players back as soon as possible,they should have all come back fit and raring to go after nearly 5 months to get fit and injury free,but no not at cas I'm afraid. Bit of a joke their training and rehab regime

Happy with the signing.maybe we will look to keep him for the following season as fullback halfback cover?
He's an out and out fullback now. He fell out with McDermott for not playing him at FB. He'd be a costly back up for FB.
Hes played most his career at half back n only when he went to Salford did he start playing full back.

Technically, yes because he played for TWP against Huddersfield. However, that game never really took place given the result has been expunged!!!

Let’s see what the RFL make of this one....

It sort of counted as Huddersfield are now out of the cup.

Exactly this. The result stood so I guessing he won't be able to play.

So predictable.

Read it back my friend. What I posted was what I had been told, in good faith. I never claimed that it would or wouldn’t happen, unlike some, who said the deal would be announced back in June.

Also, how were you shot down “months ago”. You’ve only been a member in the forum for three weeks or so 🧐🧐🧐
Fumper you change your tune more than I change my forum profile.
Edited for accuracy.

However, one last time for you:

From a source I trust:

Salford wanted £15,000 for Evalds, Cas refused
This has since reduced to £5,000, Cas again refused
My source thinks that Evalds will be a Cas player for the rest of the 2020 season, within the next two weeks.
Kane Evans was almost a done deal before lockdown but not too sure now if it’s still on the table due to finances
Please tell me where I said he was coming?

I was merely relying information I thought would be best shared on here.

Unlike you who made various claims, none of which have come true. You even went as far as creating a new profile on this forum.

PS Gareth O Brien confirmed
Be careful what you spout on here, you have no proof to back up your comments. I'll have you for deformation of character if you keep on with your allegations.
I think one internet alias taking legal action against another internet alias on the basis of defamation (not deformation) would be a fantastic legal first.
I’ll represent either or both of you for free, but only using my alias (obviously). We’ll all hide behind screens in court for a bit more fun!
Deformation....! That's genuine laugh out loud stuff. Made my day.

A certain poster needs to go and have a sit down somewhere quiet.

Solid signing. It won't right the wrongs of Saturday though.....

I'm in the same boat mate. I would happily take a CC win, under any circumstances! You could argue that this year is the best time to win it, every team has to look at how they manage their squads with games coming thick and fast. Depends how clubs want to prioritise the competitions.

Hense why i said he's an out and out fullback now. Him and BM fell out because of it.

He may have to be a little less picky in the new world we find ourselves in if he wants to stay in the top flight

No reason we shouldn't try extend him next season.

Would be great cover for FB and the halves. A little small but could probably cover wing and centre spots too.

All around versatile and a decent player as well. Not scared to run at line and take a knock.
