    Default Hastings pure class

    How good is he. He just said Lomax is the best in super league by a mile and he isnt special (hastings) he has many floors and a lot to learn. How honest. It upsets me massively that he will be at Wigan.

    Maybe he's after some of the off cuts after Wigan re-carpeted their lounge.

    We were talking to some Salford fans at their game v Wigan last week after the Academy GF.
    They believe he's gone there to put himself in the shop window to go back to NRL. Say he was offered more money to stay at Salford than go to the Pies, but that he's more likely to be on the NRL radar there than at AJ Bell.
    They don't think he'll see next season out there. Fingers crossed he moves back to Aus, belting player

    Just a thought Percival was as good as him he has had a poor year, why? He has done very little.

    Im almost certain his contract with Wigan contains a release clause after 12 months should an NRL side come in for him.


    Regardless of his Lomax comments Ive been majorly impressed with how hes conducted himself over here and the loyalty hes shown to them. You read lots about how well he interacts with fans, he seems to have grown up an awful lot when you think he still only 23 or something?


    Hes been great for Salford and the league, and even once hes a pie eater Ill still like him. Had he gone to Warrington Im not sure i could of said the same 😉

    What a complete Masterclass last night from Hastings! no one denies that Percival is good, though at times he can keep the ball himself a little too much! but it is Hastings all round talent the way he really dictates not just the game, but his team mates players! He has really gave everything this season for Salford! and it has really revived their supporters, some never seem to credit he is still only 23 years old!

    This^ 100%

    Imagine what he’ll be like at 28, if he keeps on improving.

    His rugby IQ is on another level to anything else we’ve got over here really. Obviously he’s skilful and he can run as well but the way he organises and directs his team is ridiculous for someone of his age. Really stood out to me when they played us earlier in the season how vocal he was. Didn’t stop talking all game.

    I wonder if Saints were in for Hastings? I do think a scrum half is an area we need focus on.

    If we were going to bring in a marquee signing (have we got spots left? is there anyone of that calibre available?) I'd be happy for it to be filled by a natural half back and organiser.

    With us being 16+pts better off than all the other clubs do we really need to strengthen too much?

    I'm of the thinking whilst on top you should always strengthen but will they? Some of the young lads need better contracts and we should be making Luke Thompson our Marquee to keep him from the hands of the NRL?

    I'd like a big Tongan 2nd rower/Prop to strengthen for next year.

    We should sing 'he's going home, he's going home' when we play them, may affect his game too.

    You would think the club would like to keep our pivotal players for the longer term, Hastings will probably be similar to Barba in wanting the door open for a gig in the NRL much sooner than later.

    He clearly loves playing for Salford and puts in 100% every game, and with all his work in the community he has really endeared himself to the fans. IMO it's blatantly obvious he's moving to them to get picked up by the NRL. After all their hysteria over Barba it'd be bloody funny if he left them early, though I think he's got 100% more heart than Barba and would give it is all till his last game, he seems that kind of player.

    As long as Wigan don't get a large fee will be good to see him get an NRL gig.
