Good to see we are signing up promising young players from the academy. Unless we have another year like this year I doubt we'll see much of him next year.

Not sure about Washy, I feel we may have too many 'a season too far' players next year. That said we can't have much cap space left and there isn't a ton of quality floating around. Plus I certainly don't begrudge him a testimonial.

Bowden has also signed a 2 year extension to 2021.

washy re-signing just smacks of sentimentality (same with mini) imo, awarded a testimonial (well deserved) next season, so possibly the only factor i can see us giving him another year

Yes, fantastic news about Taylor. At times he's carried our pack this season and he needs more support next.

Don't know anything about Jack Brown although the club must rate him with a 3 year deal. Has anyone seen him play?

I've heard another rumour about the Mini contract extension but not going to put it on the forum

He signed his contract with invisible ink allowing us to bring in David Fifita?

I agree
As a club we seem to do this too often especially if they are Hull boys and then find them an internal job.
Its sad when a career comes to an end but sentiment shouldnt come into it.

The problem now for the club if we are not adding a big signing for next season is how it will effect pass sales.
No excitement for the fans with the same squad taking the field in my opinion will effect pass sales.
Pearson isnt stupid.I think he will see to it that a fairly major signing will join the club for next season.

I'd like a big signing to stimulate interest for next season but with the re-signings I can't see we have enough cap left unless we use Warrington's accountants. I would imagine Westerman will sign up as well.

The rumours about Josh Jones may have credence but I don't think he will enhance the team that much. Decent player though he is.

Marquee signing?

Ideal scenario would be a marquee impact forward, but important to note that even with a marquee signing some of the salary goes on the cap.
