Haven't seen THAT many games, but can't argue with the list Havenchamps provided.  I personally liked the look of Craig Benson at fullback, and think he's a natural successor to Gary Broadbent.

I think Scott Farmer would be better in 2nd row than at prop he runs the right angles a bit like spencer does

elsley was at st helens but something happend there (think he nakerd hes knee) so he come here i think it was farmer who got the best player in the country at U18 level joint with someone from leigh and they dont play now because they are still young and we have more experienced better players in the squad

agreed but if you look at what i said earlier you will find the words " we have MORE EXPERIENCED and BETTER players in the squad" just because they are good doesnt mean they play first team straight away they play U21's them take the next step when they are ready
