    4G pitch strikes again.

    Matty Foster never played because Saints did not want him to play on that pitch.

    What a shame. Hope they all have a speedy recovery.

    Just a note to say that I had the chance to look at Matty Foster and Taylor Pemberton play against each other on Sunday for Swinton and York respectively. Foster was on DR and Pemberton was on loan.

    Foster was played somewhat out of position at 13 and I am not sure that is his best position. He seemed to be dominated too much with his carries in the middle of the pitch and he was struggling with size on contact in defence. I am sure he will be having nightmares over Pauli Pauli who smashed him a couple of times. However, I believe that he was only moved to 13 late on because of a switch so I am not sure that was the plan. However, I think it proves he is certainly an edge player.

    I am not sure what is happening with him next year. I believe there was something going on with him potentially going to Salford on loan but that was blocked by someone (i.e. not Wellens) . Do not want to go into the ins and outs of that as I have only heard one side of the story, but I am not sure Saints came out well over that issue so I would not be surprised to see him leave next year. It would be a shame if he did go because I think he is the best of that crop of young players we have, but are on the edge of the first team. Injuries have really delayed his progression unfortunately.

    In terms of Pemberton, it was the first time I had seen him play. He came off the bench for York and did ok. He did not really do anything of note, but got through his distribution and defence well. York have been struggling recently too and they could have lost yesterday with Swinton having a chance on their line after the hooter which if they had scored would have won them the game.

    I think there are only 3 games left now so will probably not have the chance to see Pemberton again.

    Interesting to see what happens next year with our DR partners. Swinton unfortunately look likely to go down with Newcastle so I am not sure we would be happy to DR with a league 1 team. I think DR is a great concept with both SL and championship clubs getting something out of it.

    Just as an aside, if we are looking for cover in the outside backs, Oli Pratt had a great game for York. I believe he is on loan from Wakefield, but he is only 18 and played really well and got the man of the match. No idea what his contract status is or anything, but he looked really good at that level and with him being so young he could be worth a risk given that Bruines is off.

    Thanks for the info. With the way most clubs play their 13 now I’m not surprised that he is not big enough. Thought we seem to play Bell a little differently. I have always had a concerns about Foster’s size for SR at SL level. Pity because the bits I have seen of him he looks a decent player. Pauli Pauli, that’s a name from the past, had no idea he was still playing.

    PS. Just had a look at Wiki, Pauli Pauli is only 29! Pity a club has not been able to get him fully fit and get some of the weight off him.

    You're not thinking about Fuifui Moimoi are you? Pauli Pauli isn't really from the past

    He does seem to have been around forever (probably just noticed his name more)
    He's not the Messiah, he's a naughty boy.

    No,but I didn’t realise his age. I just remember him rubbing his belly at Wakey when we were winding him up. Seems an age ago.

    I think Foster is a perfect size for SR. I have seen him play left edge for the majority of the back end of this season and I do really rate him; he looks great there. He could provide really good rotation options for us next year with Mata'utia moving up to prop and whitley probably covering at centre, but not sure he will be here next year.

    With Pauli Pauli he looked ridiculously overweight as usual and his knee was strapped up with enough strapping that probably would have wrapped my whole body twice over. I believe that was his first game back after a bad knee injury. Apart from a quick 5 minute blast in the first half he did not really do a great deal. Probably playing at the right level now.

    With Fuifui Moimoi I watched him play for Rochdale last year in league 1. He is about 40. Sure he popped up at some amateur game the other week. He is an absolute machine considering his age.

    Hope you are right about Foster being big enough, my concern is that our smallest SR now is Batch, he is 7 cm taller and 10. kgs heavier than Foster.
