Who is the best trainer?

Liam Farrell – He’s always doing his extras. Always in the gym even on his days off. He puts some serious hours in.

Who is the team joker?

The new guy Taulima Tautai is a bit of a practical joker. He’s come in and made his presence felt for sure.

Who is the worst dressed player?

Any of the Aussies or Kiwis, the English lads are generally pretty good but their taste is terrible.

Who has the worst taste in music?

All the young boys, They are constantly playing dance music in the gym non-stop

Who is the fastest player?

That’s a tough one. It’d be a good race between Josh Charnley and Joe Burgess for sure.

Who is the slowest player

Definitely one of the prop forwards, I’m not entirely sure but I’ll give it to Lee Mossop.

Who is the most intelligent player?

Probably Matty Smith or our captain Sean O’Loughlin.

Who is the least Intelligent player?

It’d be one of the front rows again. I’ll give this one to Dom Crosby.

Who has the weirdest superstition?

No one sticks out really. Some of the boys get really quiet just before a game but nothing out of the ordinary.

Who hits the hardest in training?

The same guy who hits the hardest in games so Mickey McIlorum.
