I'm not convinced there's many of those. I'm impressed you've scoured the Hull threads 2 years back though. You're even saltier than I thought! We've had plenty of backs that can't tackle. The likes of Hall and Crooks were absolute turnstyles. You wouldn't even comment if jealousy wasn't involved. When you signed Linnet, due to watching him in the NRL I posted that he was a plodder. Watching him this season I'm happy to admit I was wrong. Try it sometime.

I haven’t scoured any threads just remember and I’m commenting because it’s a forum is it not

I think Fonoa will certainly get the bums on seats and some excitement into the new season, strong runner, good try scorer and a cult hero to boot. The only issue I'd have if I was a Hull fan would be if you really need to spend Maquee money in an area you already look pretty good in. I'd have thought that would've been reserved for a prop and a 2nd rower.


Quite a reasoned post, one that's hard to counter. Although our pack already looks pretty good, and with the three forwards coming I think we should be well covered.

:cry: Good job he's not on marquee money then.


Ok, lets be pedantic, he'll be coming over as one of your top earners if not on Marquee money.

No doubt you'll tell us he's coming over for his undying love for Hull on the same wages as a trainee but he wont be so my point stands, is this the best position for Hull to invest in with the current back row 3 looking to be shipped out and having struggled at times at prop this year.

I was looking more forward I suppose.

Paea, Manu, Minicello, Westerman, Ellis, Hadley will all prob be going or expected too.
Green tends to miss a lot of games and even Houghtons not getting any younger.

The backs look really impressive as is and with the addition of Swift and Dawson (whos not played) then it looks pretty sorted. I'd assume Griffin will go to SR but is that making fit rather than planning to have specialists in place

your point doesn't stand, as your point was he is coming as a marquee signing. Yes, he will be coming on a good wage, nice that we can afford it and know we are in the playoffs and still in the CC, not scraping around at the bottom of the table.

Ok it doesn't, congratulations on missing the point. Good luck on getting the 2 ruts out of your carpet

Ellis won't be going, he's almost certainly staying on. Paea, Manu, Mini and Westy are all being or have already been replaced. On this seasons form we won't miss too much with Hadley, I think Jordan Lane would start in front of him if fit anyway. We're currently trying to turn Fash into a versatile forward that can cover hooker in the unlikely event Houghton won't play 90% of games. Masi is more than capable cover at prop. I don't know if we're keeping Bowden and Green but at the moment it's looking like we'll have too many quality players to fit into the backs AND the forwards. Great times to be a Hull fan but nothing is won on paper and I'm not counting any chickens!

I'll add that all the Radford fans (myself included) will be hard pressed defending him if we have a woeful season.

For the benefit of Brisbane Rhino who on the Leeds board is claiming on the Lolohea thread on there that I’ve said Sinfield has messed up with his swap deal.....no I didn’t on that one as Lolohea has been a flop. What I said is that IF Sinfield has got rid of Parcell for Lunt and he DOESN’T bring in another quota signing right now then it’ll be a mistake.

To be fair to Radford, every time he looks like the wheels are falling off he turns it around and proves the anti mob wrong.

Well I think the point is now we do have the space we can actively look, without the free space we couldn’t have brought anyone in anyway.
