In your own words saying Ryan has never killed it in SL ,you then list about 15 others who you rate higher than Ryan,pray tell how many of these said players have killed it in SL?These better halves who will become available to us,I will await this happening.

I realise when Ryan left the LSV it wasn’t on good terms , but I Bear no grudges,others have left and returned recently, so did the Prodigal Son.I suppose it is expected that the Wolfpack will be in SL next season, but do you honestly think they will still have Joe Mellor or Josh McCrone on their playing roster.?I don’t.

However we all have our opinions. :thumb:


That mon is stealing a living.

I'm with you Ian, whilst fully respecting (always) Harold's view. I desperately hope not, but we only need an untimely injury to Martyn, (he has 'history' of putting his body on the line) or Josh, and then we are down to one half back. We are exposed in that area, as well as having to play forwards in the threequarters. (not complaining about how any of them have performed there, by the way) A couple of extra points from me:-

1) I understand about Ryan not having broken many pots in SL, but he never really got the chance, did he?
2) He didn't leave LSV on 'good terms', but there were two sides to that story - and we only ever got fed one of them! Anyway, all seems to have been forgiven and forgotten, on that issue, and quite right too.

If we can get him, I say we should. It won't hurt to have three good half backs - provided that we don't try to juggle the team around to play them all at once. Whatever qualities Ryan has, or doesn't have, he has a phenomenal strike rate, and it's always handy to have someone who knows where the tryline is!

So if Ryan does return that will probably be Riddy being dropped. Are you ok with that Alan?

I guess it's down to which trade paper you read. :wink:

By the way, League Express also has Ryan Brierley coming back to Leigh.


I need to change my weekly read.. :thumb:

No, I wouldn't dream of 'dropping' either Martyn or Josh. What I am saying is that it would be handy to have cover at half back, should either of our current two not be able to play. Or our full back, come to that.

So we pay someone a fortune (he won’t come for buttons) and sit him in the stands

Should be picked on form but both riddy and Josh are playing decent but both of them never take on the defence and both of them very rarely score,for me brierley offers a bit more of a threat and has a far superior strike rate but it's up to duffs and he's doing a great job with the players and he has coached Ryan with Scotland so he'll know the strengths and weaknesses of all 3 and what's the best selection for the lads at his disposal

Arguably if Marsh, Thornley, McNally, Forsyth & Cox are scoring the bulk of our tries then the halfbacks are doing their job.

Don't know what the infatuation with try scoring halfbacks is, they are pivots not finishers, leave the finishing to the outside backs and let the 2 halves play in dinner suits picking off territory with kicks and good pass selection.

We now have 2 of the most effective centre's in the game.

I can just see it now :- Martyn Ridyard groin , or Josh Woods Head injury, could miss Leigh Centurions important fixture at Sheffield this coming Sunday. :shock: :shock:
