Don't know who who of us are kidding... If this is true its one hell of a coup for a club like Wakefield, yes the blokes form has dropped over the last year but on his day he is one of the best props in the NRL. I imagine any team in SL would have him.

Signings like this with great expectations we have a bad track record with but something tells me the fact that his brother is at the club it could work out very well for the club.


He was offered to all the SL clubs in the offseason, Leeds had a look but declined due the issue with his knee.

Desperate times call for desperate measures I guess.

If it’s for this year only it may well be the spark that is needed to lift the club temporarily. If it’s beyond this year I would be concerned.

He may well short term bring the best out of David which can only benefit Trinity.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

2018 Dally M winner and people are turning there noses up at him, even though the sharks are reportedly paying most his wages so literally have nothing to lose. This guy 2/3 seasons ago was unplayable in the nrl and at international level and has clearly lost his way abit finding himself playing for the newtown jets (would probably beat us mind). A 70% fit fifita would still be head and shoulders above anything in Our team, 90% + there’s nobody in SL touching him at prop. How we are at the minute we have literally nothing to lose, there’s hardly any recent Aus/ state of origin/ Tongan stars throwing themselves to come play for wakey is there.

No doubt a fantastic player in his day but he’s been struggling for form and fitness and looks well overweight. Let’s hope he can do us a job

The name Jarrad Hickey springs to mind.

Awesome if this happens class player who will also bring the best out of Dave. He mentioned a couple of years ago his dream was to play in the same team as his brother again.

We do need some more grunt up front in the prop department but let’s be under no illusions that, although this would undoubtedly be a coup for a club like ours, it would also be a highly risky signing given AF’s recent injury issues.

If the gamble pays off and AF is able stay fit then we would be getting someone who would be a destructive force and who would terrorise ESL defences. However, AF’s off the cuff play would just be one more potential source for pieces of individual brilliance which so far have culminated in a paucity of scores in this year’s games: second half against Leeds – 6 points (TJ solo effort); both halves against Wigan – 6 points (DF magic); both halves against Catalans – 6 points (TJ brilliance).

AF’s arrival is unlikely to be the panacea to our inherent scoring problems and to suddenly translate into us chalking up victories. Unfortunately, I can see AF’s signing being presented to paper over the cracks in our attack. The solo contributions which AF would bring are sadly no substitute for the collective and structured attacking play which we should be striving to achieve and need to achieve of we are going to avoid relegation. Potentially a very good signing but we should not lose focus of the bigger coaching issues.

What? Working alongside Elvis??? I'd rather see AF doing his battering on the field, but avoiding scraps.

found this on hickey deehell if it helps

Hickey broke through the Warriors defence with El Masri in support and ran almost fifty metres to score. He also ignored two opportunities to offload the ball, denying El Masri the chance to score a try in his final home game. Hickey later revealed that he was keen on avoiding the dreaded post-season nudie run for all those without a try for the year.
