We've done well to keep him this long.

Deserves a shot in the NRL but I hope we somehow manage to keep him.

GUN HOOKER'S NRL HOPES ON HOLD
The Warrington Wolves have poured cold water on reports doing the rounds that 'gun' hooker Daryl Clark has been given permission to negotiate with NRL clubs.
Rated the best hooker in England, Clark is on the radar of the Titans and several other clubs down under.
But a Warrington source has told me his fate will depend on the wishes of the club's next coach, who is yet to be appointed.
Wolves are on the lookout for a coach following ex-Dragons coach Steve Price's decision to move back to Australia at the end of the current season.




Found that through the mole Twitter feed.

Not me....I don’t want him to go and would be counter offering anything GC come up with. He’s a match winner and a top professional.

Well that means he's not being allowed to leave then doesn't it, any new coach is going to want to keep him.

I wonder if this is because the club worries that it will make the vacancy less attractive if they allow their best player to leave.

I think its a bit harsh personally, given what Clark has contributed to us, and given his age and the fact its now or never for him to pursue a shot at the NRL, and I'd allow him to move if it could be arranged. Now, if the club does want to put their foot down and block it, DC can't really complain because he signed this contract. I just think sometimes, doing the right thing for a player is more important than holding them to a contract, especially if they have been an exemplary professional and consistent performer like Clark, and I'd like to see him have his shot at becoming a top NRL player.

I would say the same if Ratchford or Hill had a shot at the NRL too, although that ship may have sailed.

We could potentially lose him, Austin and Widdop with a new coach coming in, be an interesting 12 months to say the least; to see how it all pans out

It is now or never for Clark, ideally I’d like him to stay and we build around him for the next 3-4 years. But if he’s willing to test himself down under I wouldn’t begrudge him on bit, I’ve no doubt he would be a success.

Be disappointed to lose Clark but Austin and widdop I wouldn't lose any sleep..what as happened to Austin his 1st season he was brilliant now he plays more like Tracy Austin...he's a shadow of his former self..

Ratchford NRL???? Not now, not ever. In terms of shifting the team around after last week he seems to have escaped most proposed culls. He would be on my bench (if all fit) due to his utility value....maybe at present he would be in ahead of Austin at stand off. Ashton would be taking his place at FB, he is our biggest threat and returns the ball much further than the overrated ambler.

Austin basically has a high bomb and a side step and nothing else. He got found out quite quickly and if the opposition simply hold the line they basically nullify him.

The problem really was the lack of threat from other directions. As soon as the defence see dummy runners they have to make decisions rather than just holding the line, which is when Austin gets his opportunities.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Exactly, we add more structure to our right hand attack he becomes a different animal. Our attack was built round him in his first year, it’s built around our left edge right now. We need more balance.

We might have abit more about us down the right side when King moves to right centre, I’m fairly certain that Inglis would prefer the left side of attack. If we have King down that right side & Charnley regains some form/confidence we will probably have a much improved threat down the right side.
