Grant won't need our advice
He'll know himself
As will Daryl
Same for moors
I fully agree regarding a send off for millo, we ought to be sorting a crowd funding page for him a family holiday to Europe or America after he leaves.

One of the best imports our club has seen. Had some fantastic games for us and clearly loves the club.
I hope when he does retire we get to give him a great send off. I'll happily shake his hand and buy him a beer.

At end of day this is a job and millo stil has a family to feed and unless he can find another job with equal or more pay i wouldn't expect him to retire.

Sad to say but Millington looks done to me. Unless we have been playing him injured this year that is.

Simple answer yes. he a passenger now in most games.

He's been awesome for years and could well be our best import ever. But his time is up.

Someone who has given so much to the club can hardly be seen as milking it. Club legend. But sadly his body is done now at this level.

What an absolutely pathetic and pointless attempt at a post!!! Millo has been, for me anyway, the best import we have ever had.

I think that’s over-stretching it a little, considering the likes of Nikau, Blackmore, Vowles and Chase. But he’s definitely up there.

I don’t think it’s over-stretching it at all to be honest. Nikau, Blackmore, Vowles and Chase were all fantastic players, but the only one that has stayed faithful to Cas is Millo. He’s done 8 years now with us, and I would have thought he’d had other offers at some point within that time. Plus, the work he’s done in the community. If you take everything into consideration, in my opinion, Millo has been our best import.

I would have to add McGoldrick into that mix in terms of loyalty and commitment to the club

Typical post from you Mucky. After giving his all and more for 8 years, you’d think he was “milking” us for another year that THE CLUB offered to him? My opinion is that Millo at 80% is still one of the best prop forwards in the English game. I hope he stays, Griffin and Smith both learn as much as they can from Grant, who then retires at the end of 2020 in the knowledge that he’s up there in most people’s top 3 all time greatest imports for our club

I think the Wigan game highlighted that Millo isn’t the right type of forward to take the game to them. He is a ball handling prop and plays as such, and would be better when the game is more open and players are tired.

I don’t see an issue with Millo, I just think as I have all season - we badly lack another go forward prop like Watts, that is a bit of an enforcer, offers grunt and doesn’t take a backwards step.

When we beat Wigan at home we destroyed them up the middle because Watts, Cook and Clark were direct. We badly lack that at times.
In the spirit of the final Blackadder episode - Goooodbyeee!

Your right which was why I was keen we held on to Clark
The sight of are forwards getting run over in big games is depressing we will have to see how we go about fixing that next season
Or perhaps starting at Wire this week

Watt's, Cooky and Smith all offer direct running as well as grunt.
Millom adds another dimension.
Smart ball handling almost half type
Unfortunately it's that flair we lack especially when we retreat into our shell.
Really seems a confidence issue.
I assume the lack of strapping suggests the bulk of his injuries are behind him.
