love him or loathe him, he will get stuck in, he will tackle, he will truck the ball up the field and he will teach some of the younger lads a thing or two, and that is exactly what we need in a pack that has had a soft underbelly and been exposed as being naive for too long.

I have to admit i am not haskell's no.1 fan (i normally refer to him by his other name of haskwit) but if he brings a level of doggedness and determination that we have been lacking of late then i welcome him with open arms and he can go an advertise as many pin-up calendars, male grooming and fitness products as he likes.

A good summary of my thoughts on this, I must admit to hoping this rumour wasnt true last night but the more Iíve read and considered it today it actually seems like a very astute signing by Boyd/ Saints.

You just canít argue with the stat of him being 10-15kg heavier than any of our other back row options.

The comparison to North is also very interesting as Haskell for one year seems exponentially better value and risk/ reward than any contract we couldíve negotiated with George. So to some of these posters with such extreme negative opinions I ask; What is honestly the worst that could happen in 1 year!?
