    Default New signing

    Signed Dan Norman from London Broncos. Not a bad signing. Some super league experience. We have some good youngsters but lack younger props. Good luck to him.

    I can't say I know much about him but he looks a unit and has some great players around him.

    Hes an absolute unit. Just seen his page on Instagram and he looks more like a bodybuilder.

    Lets hope hes a Walmsley MK2

    Someone put a picture on Facebook, looks massive. How tall actually is he? If he runs his weight he could be a very decent addition!
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    A friend of mines son played academy level with him at Widnes and said he was more of a body builder than a rugby player. Apparently his dad is very much into that "sport".

    I mentioned it on here a couple of weeks ago.

    Yet he's a professional rugby player.

    The mind boggles

    Well if he can have half the impact Walmsley had, he will be doing well.

    I count 7 props at the club next year now, have we ever had that many??

    A friend of mine ( or mines as you mention) said he wasn`t a body builder and more a rugby league player. I mentioned that a couple of weeks ago to so many people that took me seriously. Apparently this is evident.

    So he’s a bodybuilder but not much of a rugby player? Bit like Simon Haughton then??

    If he is better than Ashworth then its a positive.

    If youre counting Batchelor with his 30 minutes at prop/loose forward in his career to date then yes, 7.

    Have to think hes a direct replacement for Ashworth and at 23, he still has time to develop.

    A project signing who we can work on and he can cover when needed.

    Hope he goes well but the game has moved on to crunching iron in Tom's gym; speed and pliability are as important as 'looking a unit.'
    I think some of our signings are a nod that there has'nt been much in the academy level in the forwards that the club is confident in for the future though I do think Wingfield looked ok against Leeds.

    You remind me of an anti vaccinator on Twitter. ‘ My hairdresser said her mother’s boyfriends auntie saw a man in the garage who said Bill Gates is putting micro chips in the vaccines’.
    Humans are more concerned with having than being.
