I think Durham has been disengenuous there. Connor is a real homegrown talent who initially played his academy rugby at half back, got switched to fullback due to injury and was subsequently picked for international duties. He played internationally a then more unaccustomed position of centre, he's also played on the wing for us this season. He lacks pace but his understanding of the game makes up for that. Yes he does miss the odd tackle, and give away the odd penalty but he's an aggressive player who gives his all. It's difficult to say where his best position is, I like him in the halves but his kicking game is hit and miss, and his lack of pace limits him there and at centre or wing. He's not a fullback for me although can do a decent job there. I suspect he will end up at second row eventually.
I do however think the announcement is poor timing by hull FC.

In the same way as sacking the head and assistant coaches two days after one of their young guys tragically passed away. Both things could have been left a week for the focus to be on Ronan this weekend.

Good cover for us in the halves, still young who will learn a lot.

If he has been signed as cover in the halves it could see out of contract HTW following Dean I guess.

Dean is signing for Toronto according to his dad.

As you've said on your board, this week was a time where everyone should be able to pull together, but unfortunately that hasn't happened. It's a real shame, but it sounds like the minutes applauses at the games yesterday were all impeccable.

A great signing I think . Young, English and talented.
Out of nowhere, again. Good work by the club .
