If touch wood, ISA or Farrell miss game time.

I’d be happy for Wells to have a return to the first team.

Or Smithies to move to Second row, he’s great but my minor criticism of his is he doesn’t make many yards. Could suit behind further out wide, considering we have so many “middles” available.






RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!

It worked short term, when he had Wane coaching him but it’s all unravelled. His head knocks haven’t helped but it was the injuries after that, where he’d look like he’d ruptured his ACL or dislocated his shoulder, only to find out it was a slight bang that were the biggest concern.


Why did Gold Coast Titans sign him then, if he was doing nothing at Saints?

And I would not say that a couple of head injuries were hardly a "slight bang" in a physical game like rugby League.

He was not the only one!

I know the conditions were bad, but the whole team looked disinterested judging by the number of mistakes, players not talking to each other or consoling each other if they made a mistake.

Even Manfredi made mistakes and I saw nothing in the game to warrant his early return to the first team.

If the Reserves played the same way against a better team like St Helens, it is hardly surprising they were beaten so easily.

You’ve misinterpreted both points. Firstly I said he didn’t look like a Wigan player, not that he didn’t look like any teams type of player. Wigan were famed for bringing through and bringing in gritty competitors with an aggressive edge and he was never that. Secondly I’ve not said his head injuries were ‘slight bangs’, I said that about the injuries that took him off the field after his comeback from the concussions. He went down like he’d been shot with a knee problem and a rib issue and looked like he was done for the season but both turned out to be very minor problems.

Interesting that Agar sees Greenwood as a prop rather than a back row. He certainly has the size and athleticism to make a good prop IMO. We might have missed a beat there but I don’t think his game time would have changed at all given who is in front of him at prop anyway.

When I saw they were moving him positions I assumed to Centre.

If he goes missing in the second row when the hard yards are required I’ve no idea what he is going to do as a prop.

I do though expect he will have a good start to his Leeds career until he secures a contract then performances will return to where they were for Wigan last year.

Hope I’m wrong but doubt it.

Not entirely sure it's a good idea to put someone with a (recent) history of concussions at prop, but Agar knows better than me. Allegedly.

And i thought the same thing. The problem most have with him at second row is not doing enough, so why move him to prop? Putting second rows at prop is a Wigan thing and even we didnt do that with him.






Self-virtuous hypocrite

And why did Gold Coast Titans bin him off?
As for his poor game in the reserves, then had it been a one off then fair enough but was the same lackadaisical player v Leeds and Leigh in the warm up games, then again in the reserves game at Widnes.






SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Is it a case of him just not being happy at the club anymore? All you’ve stated are tell tale signs IMO

Who told you in the off season last year Greenwood would be out of the door?
