Obviously you would watching them live

But unknown players such as Ben , my point is you get a better idea about them reading fan forums , and opinions of fans who see a lot more of them as opposed to judging them by who they've been on loan too, I think that's a pretty reasonable point.

A good example is Satae who everyone presumed was a ten minute impact prop, but when you actually read the New Zealand Warriors forums, they actually spoke of how he had a massive engine and could play big minutes. You get a better insight sometimes. Hope that clears it up.

If that were true, half of FC’s players wouldn’t be playing for us, with the comments on here, especially Connors not a fullback, Griffin’s not a centre, Yeahman, well the mind boggles.

So far

Griffin
Connor
Brown
Cator
Satae
Swift

Are all rumoured to have either signed a new deal or spoken about a desire to stay at Hull, hopefully these will all stay along with Ma'u and Sao.

Sign a UK winger to replace Faramio and a quota prop to replace Masi.

Satae quoted in todays HDM that he is enjoying it in Hull and couldn't imaging playing anywhere else. Must be the pork and stuffing sandwiches :D

Reading the piece in the HDM its looks like Satae is very happy and wants to stay which is very promising, hopefully Sao will also re sign. Mau is a difficult one as undoubtedly a very good player but not shown his best though I think with BH we will certainly see a much better Mau this season and you can never tell if he's happy or not.

As for Faraimo, I like him and for me I'd have him on the wing instead of Fonua , he also looks to have worked hard on his game (tackling technique aside) in pre season, though I think we may well see him at Cas next season. We need some pace out wide other than Swift.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!

Any guesses as to what Faraimo earns in comparison to Fonua as its all about getting as much from the cap as possible.

Feel abit for Fonua as I feel he's a much better centre than winger, his main strength is popping the ball out for his winger. But with Griffin and Carlos it was always abit if a waste of cap.

Signing Fonua basically seemed to be to stop Cas getting him :lol:

That’s what I heard. Lasty advised against it, but Radford didn’t want it to come back and bite him by him playing for another team.
