Well he must be doing something right as there were apparently a few clubs chasing him.

I wont say hes a bad player because  he's not that bad, but when i watched him against distington, he wasn't that good, and from what i saw he isnt a good kicker, he went to kick a conversions from right under the sticks and he missed!! In my whole life i have never ever seen that happen, he cant be as good as everyones making him out to be. It wasnt even windy so there wasnt an excuse. Well, he didnt kick in that match again!!!
Rugby League isn't just a game, a sport.. It's a way of life <3

in reply to the last comment about James, i don't think for one moment that James was signed as a kicker but more for his potential with ball running.
i think that the lad is getting a raw deal lately possibly caused by jealousy, the one thing i know is that he is still one of the strongest players around here with the greatest desire to win and under the guidance of the right people will once again raise the bar for performance.Do not forget for the last 4 years has been the main target for every team he plays against and in my opinion has played well throughout this time barring the odd bad game which even the best do have!
