Any one know who League Weekly are referring to here - 'Warrior set for DW exit'


Probably Tom Davies, there was an article on RL News about Leeds eyeing him up.

As well as Davies mentioned above, there were also two separate articles in League Weekly linking Sammut with Featherstone. One (which suggested he would be also on the coaching staff at Fev) was by Nosey Parker and is thus easy to ignore, but the other was by John Davidson, who has been in Sydney over the last week or two - isn't that where Sammut has been lately playing for Malta?

Escare or Navarette would make sense.

I know if I coached or played against a team with only one pivot I’d be over the moon.

This isn’t kids rugby. Hastings is a very good half but as a defender the thought if only having him calling things and directing the team would be a massive mistake and basically put a massive Red Cross on his head as a target.

It’s not like we have a creative full back either.

Giving the opposition one man to target as a play maker would make us so predictable.

I agree I like the look of French in open play but for me he needs to be on the wing.

ZH is a fullback, no reason to shift him.

Bibby is a centre.

No point reinventing the wheel and making players play out of position to accommodate a player who clearly isn’t a half.

On the face of it it does seem a strange use of cap space but given we have gone down that route I’d be looking to shift Burgess and one of Davies/Marshall in the hope we can use that cap space to recruit a half, assuming we are already looking to move in Sammutt and Escare.


Still 2 pivots. 6 just plays off the 7. 7 closer to the ruck with the 6 outside of him. Then the 6 and 7 actually play together on the same side of the field in attack as a creative 2. One more controlling the other more running.
It’s more old school as that’s how it used to be as an evolutionary step from union where their 12 plays off their 10.

Salford did play with a dominant half in Hastings with Lui then Lolo playing more off him.
Canberra also let Sezer play the 7 using Wrighton as a running 6.

I don’t see French as a play making half, but I’d like to see him running off Hastings outside the 7 with the 3rd quarter line outside of the 6.

ZH lining up in the centres for GB vs Tonga, interesting one to watch out for.

Played there for England as well (when Ratchford was preferred at FB) Also played there for Panthers; I think he'll go well.

He started out as a wing/centre and played the early part of him Leeds career at Centre replacing Senior in the squad number 4 shirt.

I think it was only injury to Webb that saw him move to full back.

He played wing/centre at Penrith but didn’t look overly comfortable as a centre.

For me he has been a 1 since 2014 and I just don’t see him moving back to the centre for club or country but then again i’m Not going to argue with Wayne Bennett so looking forward to see how he goes.

Thought the same but based on attacking flair from 2020 you can’t look past Coote for FB IMO.
