  1. http://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2015/07/23/wolves-confirm-sandow-signing/ This has got to be good news - we've been crying out for a creative half back since Briers retired anbd we finally have one, although he does appear, by all accounts, to be a bit of a maverick. Let's hope his Visa is sorted for the Super 8s and TS can manage him and get the best out of him.
  2. Hope it's a case of new brand new level of performance. The boys did really well last night, nothing spectacular but very solid and great in defence. Hope it's a sign of things to come...............
  3. I would be delighted if this was true Gary - but as with all these things, I won't believe it until I see it confirmed "officially" by either you or the club!! There is now also some "chatter" about Chris Sandow coming!!! There is always loads of gossip about who we have signed and most of it ends up being rubbish..................
  4. Agreed - but it would be good to hear his views on the season so far and what happened at the "clear the air talks" after the Hull KR game and how the marquee signing is coming along (have we got someone or still looking) etc etc....
  5. Come on Gary - get an interview sorted with TS and ask him the difficult questions..........................
  6. Can't see us making the top 8 the way we're playing and every likelihood we'll come a cropper against Leigh!!
  7. Great news - he's signed up until November 2019 on improved terms. Very well deserved!!
  8. I'd have banned him for more games TBH - I think he got off lightly.................
  9. If found gulity he deserves to get the book thrown at him - disgusting behaviour!!
  10. Looks like TS has read my post because in the Guardian he says Declan will get his chance at half back this weekend
  11. What I can't understand is why, when we had Briers & Hodgson, when we attacked the opposition line we always had plenty of options with runners & dummy runners all designed to confuse the defenders. Now, under the current set-up, we don't seem to have any dummy runners, are very one dimensional and when Ratchford comes into the line, he tends to get caught "man & ball". Something is seriously wrong in our attack and this is reflected in us scoring less points than any other team, including bottom club Wakey. When we do try to be bold and inventive, we do it in the wrong end of the pitch like yesterday trying to play champagne rugby deep in our own half resulting in England trying an impossible off-load to Bridge - knock on and a few plays later they are under our sticks to go into the break level with us. And don't even get me started on our woeful kicking game........................
  12. And they'll be plenty more to come unless we learn to keep hold of the ball, be patient, build pressure and not panic and make suicidal passes to try and force something to happen. Oh, I've also forgotten that it would be useful to have a half decent kicking game......................................
  13. That damned thing called work sometimes interferes with my social scene :twisted:
  14. Well he sounds very impressive and can certainly "talk the talk". Let's hope he can also "walk the walk"
  15. I can come out of hibernation now
  16. It was great last night. I was sat with all the Saints fans and was the only one jumping up and down and shouting with pleasure . The boys dug really deep especially after we lost SG & BW due to injury - at half time I was concerned that we may run out of steam with so few bench options, but it wasn't to be and we weathered their early 2nd half storm and then took full control. Really proud of the boys.
  17. I just wanted to congratulate Rhys on a great performance against Castleford last Friday. In a very subdued affair I thought he was tremendous, scoring a couple of tries and making, in my opinion, the tackle of the season by running back and tackling the bigger man on the line and managing to keep him from grounding the ball. Well done Rhys - in my view Man of the Match for that tackle alone, but he just doesn't seem to get the plaudits other players do
  18. I had to pinch myself when I saw that one as well - like a number 9 bus - always come in pairs...............
