How's mitch clark getting on?


He’s not being picked and hasn’t looked very good when he has played. He wasn’t much cop for Cas though, unlike Holmes who is very good for them.

Whatever happens I’m not getting concerned over it. I’m gonna enjoy the ride this season with stars like Widdop Inglis and Clark, while we win the treble. It could be another 2 or 4 generations before we get to see a squad like this.
You can all debate about next season. I’ll don’t care too much.

Duckie has predicted we will win a treble every year I think. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

The moment that Duckie admitted to putting money on Dec Patton to win the Man Of Steel award, was the moment that he gave up the right to be taken seriously on here.... :lol: :CRAZY:
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

Not really. You only have to look at the Cas forum to see how they rate him. He’s a good player, 28, battering ram workhorse type forward which we lack. I’d have him anyday over a Latu, Akauola, Jason Clark.



i've had a look this morning, theres also someone on there that says they're surprised that we're being linked with him, he's not one our level signings, and has been injury prone/fitness issues up until the start of last season.

That was the same GB tour that Josh Jones was selected and Ben Currie wasn’t. Does that mean he’s a better player than Currie? Or Ash Handley is a better winger than Tom Johnstone/Regan Grace?

Who is under contract?


On form, yes Jones was better than Currie in that year. Significantly so, and his team got to the Grand Final. Whereas we finished 4th in a two horse race. So yes, based on the impact of each of them in that season, Jones was better than Currie.

Currie has since developed back towards the player we know he can be, and Jones has faltered at two different clubs.

This isn’t necessarily comparable to the Hughes Holmes discussion. Neither have has outstanding seasons, neither have had particularly dreadful seasons, neither have had/had to recuperate from a significant injury and neither have changed clubs on recent years. They have both plodded along in the same team churning out the same performances.

Re: Johnstone, I don’t know what his year looked like in 2019, but it’s safe to assume he missed a large part due to injury. Making his selection for GB unlikely. Grace in 2019 was, in my opinion, unlucky not to tour. He was in the back up squad of I remember correctly. However Handley had an exceptional year and was probably preferred due to his more robust physique.

And Jack Hughes is under contract. My point was we have one of these style players, who is already under scrutiny for his contribution to the team. Would another one add a significant attacking threat to our team?

Holmes will be a replacement for Jason Clark. Whether that means we're going to move Hughes to 13 I do not no however I know if it was me moaning about signing a 28 year old workhorse on a free who's been on fire this season to replace the mighty Jason Clark I'd be hung, drawn and quartered by some on here.

We paid Tyrone Roberts 300k a year a few years ago. There is literally no risk to this signing, lets all relax.

Of course, Ducky has gone a bit over the top but I do have some sympathy for his basic message. We have to enjoy this season as you never know what is round the corner.
