Happy new year all. Here we again with the rubbish posts. And yes well done Matt.
Would you rather I started a totally new thread on Minikin or just add to an existing one ](*,)
Tbh couldn't give a monkey's about him, he's another team problem not ours.
Might be our problem when we play Hull kr and he out plays Shenton. Time will tell though.

I doubt he'd give Shenny any problems in centre, in fact, I doubt he'd cause anyone any problem in the centre position. He's OK on the wing n that's about it imo.

He came to Cas with rave reviews from many
"Experts" in the game. He was that good that he apparently "ended the careers" of some experienced Championship centres

If only ever saw that in rare flashes in his time with us. I also thought he often appeared to have confidence issues - even looking a bit bewildered by what was going on around him.

Time will tell if he is capable of delivering his early potential.

You must have been watching a different Shenton to me last season. He was shocking in both attack and defence.

Even with Shenny in a wheel chair minikin would struggle against him,and, that's not a glowing review of Shenton it's how poor minikin is at centre.

You must have been watching a different Minikin to me over the last few seasons. He has been shocking in both attack and defence when playing centre.

I agree I think he could still make a decent centre
In 2019 him and Clare on that right side were as bad as anything you'll see in super league as a winger centre combo ...Will be interesting to see if he makes a better fist of it when season starts
