Not what I heard, there not happy with his physical condition and resultant lack of game time and happy to offload. Time will tell I suppose

So if thats true then what are we offering him because he wouldnt come to us for less money so again why are we OVER PAYING for players (if this is true that is)

I’ve also heard the Westerman to us rumour. Not sure how i feel about it to be honest, good player yes but still now even after all these years by all accounts his attitude to training etc isn’t always the best. If though he wants to finally fully grow up and make the best of his career then it could be a shrewd move if the price is right.

Might have seen how coming to cas has paid off for his mate watts. Good signing for me if true

If we sign him, we have to play him as a wide player like he did when he first came through. He was much more of a dangerous runner there.

Could give us some quality and dangerous back rows on either side. It would probably see Jesse moving to prop to cover for the Clark loss too IMO.

Silly money doesn’t equate to overpaying him.

If he wants £100k, Hull offer £70k, it could mean we have offered a deal that’s £75k.

Doesn’t mean he’s got the deal he’s wanted, doesn’t mean we have offered silly money. Just means we offered the best deal available potentially.

Something like this is the most likely situation.

He took a huge pay cut to go back to Hull, now he's had a decent season he wants something more like he's got the rest of his career, he isn't going to get that but Cas could be happy offering him more than Hull are.

For me, he improves our first choice 17, but he’d change our style a bit.
Powell has tended to play Masssey and Milner as loose forwards who more or less do the role of another prop. Westerman isn’t that kind of player, so not sure where it leaves those two.
We’d certainly have some ball-playing ability in the forwards with:
P - Watts.
H - McShane
P - Millington
SR - McMeeken
SR - JSL.
LF - Westerman.

With Moors, Cook and Smith as other props and Foster, Holmes and Milner as back-rowers (plus Peachy) and Clarkson if he stays (I’m not sure he will). O’Neill as a back-up hooker too.

There wouldn’t be many squads with a group of forwards as strong as that.

Everyone on here says Jesse is better out wide so you put him at prop lol

With Millo and Moors’ age we don’t have any energy in the middle of the pitch. Jesse offers that and also a bit of an offloading game too. People say he’s better out wide but for me Leeds last week has been the only real game (and London maybe) where he’s done any real damage this season in that position.

Go back and watch the games from 2017, his best season was when he was played out wide. He then got put in the middle, got knocked about then had a poor end of the year.
