Fair enough Yoss thought he was only 28-29 Not 31 Still playing well though

My real hope is that BMM steps up every week like he did last week and we slip him straight into Gareth's role

I have been raving on about Sika Manu to my mates for ages, I would sign him without a doubt before the Eels do, He runs great lines & tackles hard like Ellis does & is only 25 i think.

He is a good player but he's got Scott Sattler written all over him... BMM looked good on Friday night. He should get some decent game time over the next few weeks so hopefully he can push on. If he had have caught that bomb he would have been a hero...

It would be great to have him at the club, because finally we can get rid of matt groat who isn't really doing much at the tigers anyway.

Groats still not 20, he will keep growing and get better.

Best of Matt Groat will be in 2014 onwards

He will be a club legend.

WTF???

The kid is 20 years old and if his form drops too far, we can be put him back in Under 20's for a few weeks. Considering he is this young, he would also only be on a 3rd of the value of someone like Sika Manu. You do realise getting rid of Groat will only allow us to buy another U20's player and not someone who is an International???

I wouldnt be suprised if we played the youngest Prop pairing in the history of the game last Friday night... Give the kid another 12 months before we feed him to the Sharks.

It must be that steady rate of improvement as he gains experience that puts him off... Either that or the massive potential the kid has...
