Ferres has another year left and given Wards bad luck with injuries I could understand Ablett getting a one year deal.
However, JJB and Delaney have to retire / move on and we need to sign an aggressive BR player minimum there.

Given Hall,Moon,Galloway,Hardaker,job,delaney and you could argue one or two of the JP/ Sinfield/ lealuai money should be free to spend on the cap.

We should have the cash to sign the players we need,if they are available . If not then we should be looking at transfer fees for one or two positions.

I think our list of poorish players is actually quite long, partly the result of not starting this process a couple of years ago. What I do think is that we need to prioritise - I wouldn't bother with a winger until pretty much everywhere else is sorted.

We need a prop that the other side are wary of and doesn’t take any sh|t. We had Barrie and then we had Peacock who wouldn’t take anything along with Leuluai who’d hit hard and run hard every game.

I think we need a good prop and a nasty prop. Maybe a fast/strike backrower but I think with the right couple of props and a stand off coming in that we’d do alright then.
Most of our issue come down to weakness in the forwards and not doing the tough stuff in the middle. Sort that out and I think the team would be transformed.

add a left centre and I'd agree.

Definitely need another centre needed - the thought of Handley and Sutcliffe playing centre until Watkins is fit - doesn't bear thinking about. Two of the poorest players in the whole squad - neither has any appetite for hard defensive work - same goes for Moon and Cuthbertson.






Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

Why do you think people think Sutcliffe might make a second row or 13 if he's not a good defender?

Sutcliffe needs to be a squad player at best. He shouldn't be getting much game time should we make some signings next year

Nasty props are overrated and often a liability in the modern game. You just cant throw your weight around like you could in the past. You just want a prop who consistently makes good yards.

True up to a point, those who focus too much on the enforcer bit are indeed a liability. But I reckon the genuine hard case that takes hammer as well as gives it is often cut a bit more slack than maybe they should be when dishing out the rough stuff. Not that I'm complaining. Or rather I am but only cos we lack someone of that ilk.

It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.
