He definitely needs some more upper body strength and ball control work. Then the rest of his game will come.

At the minute he looks like a 19 year old kid playing against seasoned, much older blokes.

At the moment has he cost a game also ? It's strange to see you guys struggling for a winger as not so long ago you had a gluttony of players who could start at most super league sides !!!! Manfredi has been a huge miss if he has been fit would be in contention for an England spot

It's a bit early to be moving a lot of players around to accommodate not playing a fit winger on the wing. It's not a given that their replacements will not make mistakes, all players do. When or if it starts to become an apparent weakness exploited by the opposition it would be a concern but so far you have won 2 games so I dont think I would be so negative about seemingly small errors that ultimately did not affect the result. Rather look for an improvement from him until his replacement is fit into play

Anybody in the know re. Manfredi's injury ? Was it a compound fracture ?
If he's still another two or three weeks away it must've been more than a crack.

Could have cut it off and stitched it back on and been back playing in time he been out with it. My guess is that its his knee again. Hope its not though.

He’s walking round with it all bandaged up, so it seems a bit of an effort to cover up a knee problem.

He told me when he rang to thank for donating ticket money and he said that he had just had another injection in his knee, that was about a week before he injured his thumb?

Fair enough, I can see why they wouldn’t want to admit to a knee issue but walking round in bandages seems a bit far (although easy enough to do).

Whatever is the issue keeping him out, I just hope his luck turns at some point. It must be driving him up the wall.
