    Default Kevin Naiqama

    Glad hes coming to.
    Remember Gidley ?
    First five or six games, we thought we had signed a dead leg.
    But he turned out a great centre who won us many matches.
    Lets hope Kevin turns out to be half as good.

    I think he reads the game well. Danny McGuire put in a great-looking cut out pass on Sunday but Kevin was there to intercept. Great to see.

    He was written off three weeks ago, people asking for Morgan back

    Knee jerk reactions as usual

    Taking Barba’s contribution into account I think we are a better team this year than last. Holbrook did well to bring in Barba though because after years of boring dross he reminded us of what Saints are. This current team are a proper Saints side. 80 yard trys from both wingers was a joy to watch. Also when Grace got pushed the other day Paulo stepped in the way to say try it with me instead. Shades of Sonny Nickle there for me. He got sin binned for that but it puts down a marker

    With Sonny there, Grace wouldn't have got pushed.

    Sonny Knuckle would have punched Tomkins off his feet so that he landed in the west stand.

    Really? Or was it actually mostly a decent discussion mainly about the merits of each player up to that point, with many including the caveat that it was still early days and the grounds hadn't hardened yet.

    It's fantastic that he's settling now and showing his ability after a shaky couple of months. Brilliant also that we seem able to attack superbly on both flanks. Holbrook deserves massive praise for this, as it's something we've struggled with for years (and allowed opposition teams to stack their right side in defence)
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Nothing against Costello who I think has filled in really well, but when we get Percy back to full form and fitness we really will be a handful on both sides.

    Costello has covered well and is a decent player but Craig Hall left him clutching at thin air for the second Hull KR try (which looked like it was on the line and not a try BTW).

    I've said this to a few people in person but he reminds me of Kevin Iro. Not in terms of his style so much, but how he can come alive in a big game and destroy some teams after going periods of time of doing very little. He offers a great threat on that right hand side and appears to be in a purple patch at the moment.

    I suppose it is just coincidence that our wingers have been scoring tries while Percival as been missing.

    No, that's just backtracking, people had written him off

    Just re-read the whole thread as I started it. A few wrote him off but many like myself, were hoping that firmer grounds would bring the best out in him. I am truly glad that is the case. At that point in time when the thread was started he was very average.

    Yes some were hoping he would improve but goes to show the knee jerk reactions from some fans. Some would have dropped him and brought back Morgan or an academy player, imagine doing that after a few games for every player, we would be swapping all the time, All players need to bed in, adapt, progress etc. This is another example we're we should be more patient and not so quick to write people off

    Well, that’s true, but it was nice to see a forward standing up for one of his smaller team mates. I miss the good old days!

    You can blame Tommy for at least one of KN’s tries as he passed the ball back inside to him.
