How strange will it be seeing Andy line up against us in our rivals colours? Obviously I wish him well and glad we got to see him in the claret and gold, but I can't help think what might have been. What if he had never been moved to prop, would he have been cast out of the team for injured players then? Still we can't live thinking about what ifs. Andy is still a quality player, tackles everything, works his socks off and is very strong. Wakey have a good un for sure.

They do, all the best to Andy, I personally think he is a real loss to the squad. All the best to a great giant!

Yes I'm very disappointed in the club to let Andy go who's still got the best years in front of him and his passion for the club was never in question. I'm not happy to see Kirmond go either. All the best Andy and thank you for the memories.

Bit like Spuggy at Hull FC though,what Andy did in the past will count for little now with the Wakefield fans.

Andy Raleigh IMO never made the change to prop successfully " which surprised me " but the one thing that never changed about him was his defence, there were games this season where we were obviously going to need a top defence and he would have been invaluable. I wish him all the best at Wakey, i hope he is their top forward.

Agree Bo,his defence could never be faulted this year.Hope goes well at Wakefield.Gonna watch with interest how he goes.We might regret letting him move on.

To be honest fella, I said this on Facebook to Mabelsyrup a few days ago. In away I hope it does and maybe these stupid team choices that have been made over the last season and a half might just bite the management square on the backside!!

Sorry mate,I don't especially want to upset people who are obviously very close to him,but 'might' was the keyword of my final sentence.

Just my opinion - which counts for very little.

Nah it's fine DL, you haven't upset anyone from what I can see. Personally I think that the points you have put on are well and truly valid. Smile Well posted mate!
