Whoops
Got my Private Education establishment mixed-up.
It seems to becoming a regular thing.
However as Marts post reinforced the fact he's probably on Unions radar.

I'll look into that. They do have some alumni who made the grade in various things.

I seem to remember he was ex-army too?
Don't think he was kept on, not heard anything since. A lot harder for a half back/hooker than a back in RL. Even international players struggled to cross code.
i read an article some where and the lad admitted he just couldn't manage the intensity of the training and decided he would never be able to reach super league fitness levels.

I played in my youth and have watched my lads play into open age, I'm always suprised at the underlying fitness in some of the biggest, heaviest players. It's phenomenal. Men at least 5 stones overweight playing 80 in mud.
