Hodko's all right, but he's clearly unable to get Newcastle off bottom on his own. Don't forget he's been playing without a recognised 5/8 in support. He's better than McCrone, although I personally don't think there is a huge difference.
An ok signing. But gee, how would Bunji be feeling? Miss out on Keary, thinks he is safe, now talk of shark eyes signing. His confidence must be shot.
Fair enough. I just don't see Hodkinson offering any flair or adventure in attack. He doesn't light up a backline. He doesn't run much. He doesn't create many opportunities. He kicks well, but predictably. To me he's a solid player rather than a great one, and as such doesn't add much to what we already have.Hodgkinson played origin last year,McCrone....well he's a reserve grade player at best.
Hodgkinson definitely an upgrade .
