    Default Callum watkins ( missed opportunity?)

    I'l hold my hands I thought he was finished but he is playing really well at the moment and would certainly have added something to our back line in the absence of percy

    Should we have gone in for him when he was available ? did we have any salary cap we could have used?

    He's clearly more advanced than what we have as back up currently for now but to be honest given our style of play where minimal ball is pushed through the centres I don't think it would have added much overall.

    Trouble with that is what do we do with him/Naiqama once Percival is fit. It would be an expensive reserve I imagine.

    on current form I think he's better than Naiqama, certainly in terms of attack , he tore the dragons to bits at times last night

    If hed been available on a short term deal absolutely. He wasnt though and on a 3 year deal for a 29 year with a bad injury record Salford are welcome to him.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    It’s not Kevs fault he’s had no ball. He’s a better player than Watkins but can’t show that if we never involve him....

    If Watkins is anywhere close to what he can do then Naiqama is nowhere near him IMO.

    I agree, Fages tends to be on that side but he gets too close to Kev N and most of the time it's a useless drop off ball with defenders waiting. We've been here before with Shenton, Watkins would be the same.

    Surely you mean how good he USED to be?

    I assume the OP was talking of game to game contract or something very short. I wouldn't have supported a year or anything like that.
