Anyone fancy him as a prop at Wigan?

I would cream my pants if we could sign Mason would work on every level. He is an enforcer, demands respect and may very well spark Fielden into life.

Should he be available he would be my top target for 2010.

Cannot see Union being a viable option as he would have no position.

Would we have the cash for Mason? Plus his rep career aint over and players dont come here unless they are. Would prefer O'Meley to be honest.

Sadly, I think he's more likely to accept 800 thou to go to Japan and be used mainly in line-outs, than he is the 170 thou the average SL club could pay him.

I agree with you, a talent like Mason would be wasted from the off in Union. But when has that stopped it happening before?

He could not be a forward in union i think every union coach must know that.

Could be a centre at a push, would though be shocked to see Union take an interest in him or him in them to be fair.

howver he did have experience at half back and in the back row which gave him some ball handling and kicking skills. he also had a little bit of pace left. Mason has been a big barge up the middle prop all his career. Or iiit a case that if one player does it then all can.

maybe Feka will switch to RU and turn out for samoa at centre :!:

Mason is exactly what we need and i'd love him at Wigan. His would be one of the most sought after signatures in world rugby tho.

One player who is defiantly worth breaking the bank over imo

I remember people saying that Kurt Sorsenson would never play centre - but he did, for about three matches (which doesn't prove much, I know).

Personally I'm not sure Mason has the skills to play centre. Jonh tends to know his stuff re. RU running backs, but I can't see it myself.

That said, if Mason does leave the Roosters, it's impossible to see him coming to SL. He's a money-bags merchant, and we haven't got any.
