Minikin has been given the number 3 shirt at Hull kr which is the reason he left Cas. Wanted to play at centre not on the wing.

He wore 3 at Cas in 2019, but it didn’t make him a good centre. He got his opportunity to play there when Webster left, but he didn’t take it. He was very poor defensively in that position and didn’t offer much in attack either.
Whilst he has been given the number 3 shirt, I dint think it will be long before they go back to Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Kane Linnett in the centres.

Didnt exactly help him playing in the Cas team 2019 did it. They weren't exactly on fire that Year by any means.

Very true. And he never really got a consistent partnership with a winger (mostly Clare who is poor defensively) or a back-rower (McMeeken was out a lot).
But that doesn’t excuse missed one-on-one tackles. Ive never thought he is big enough to be a centre or reads the game well enough to make up for his lack of size.
I could be wrong though. But if he was poor in a 2019 Cas team that made it to the play-offs, I’m not sure how he’ll be better in a Hull KR team that will be nowhere near as good.

If you have a look at the dates of the posts you'll see that the bulk of the thread is from 4 years ago.

The 3 or 4 recent posts contain healthy & structured debate.

HNY all the same though......

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

What?!
But Powell was happy to let him leave Cas. Yet signs him for Wire.
Imagine their fans won't be happy.
