Watched Kevs interview this morning. Said senior players were consulted about any new signings first to make sure they’re on board due to the salary cuts. Again stated we’ve a very limited budget.

Someone (rightly) said a few days ago that kids are never ready for first team for their first game, but you never get to find out if they will make it if you don’t give them the chance. Holroyd, Walters, Mustapha, Tindall all need to be getting a go now, so we can see where they are at. They’ll all make mistakes, but they’ll bust a gut trying.

There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain...
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Ooh I was so close...

Head Coach Richard Agar added, “Bodene is a quality forward who has a great deal of experience both in the NRL but also in Super League with Warrington Wolves and Toronto Wolfpack. This is a win-win situation for Bodene and ourselves; he is able to show what he can do whilst allowing us to strengthen our pack with a tough period of games coming up in a short period of time.”

Exactly, if I was Holroyd, Walters or Mustapha and did not get much of a chance this season then I would be looking for a new club who would give me some game time.

I agree with Agar personally

He was ok at Warrington , didnt do much st Leigh & poor chasing the fake riches at Toronto.
Agar bigging him up when he's picked Rhys Evans & ignored Sam Walters Tommy Holroyd & Liam Tindell etc means zip imo.
Its another poor signing irrespective of wages or injuries.

It makes sense to me given that Mellor and Donaldson are out for six weeks or so, Sutcliffe is still injured and Ward is out for the foreseeable. We normally play with three second rows so if Walters is anywhere near ready he'll get a game. It's not like they have given Thompson a three year contract.

I'm sure Walters and Holroyd will get a chance this season not sure about Mustapha not sure he's big enough.Walters and Holroyd are still only 19.

Thompson is just hear to covee our injuries to our pack with Mellor and Donaldson both out now for a chunk of the season it makes sense to me for the club to give him a contract for remainder of season.Ward and Crosby who knows if they'll play again never mind this season, L.Sutcliffe is just about to come back from injury and imo and many others it seems he's not good enough to be in our 17 and is on his way out of the club anyway. So our back rowe options are short with just Martin, A.Sutcliffe, Smith,(more of a 13), Walters (yet to make his debut and still young and will get a chance to prove himself), O'Connor( same as Walters) and now Thompson so I think the club have brought Thompson in at the right time to cover us and he hasn't even played for us yet he could be a solid addition to us lets wait and see when he was at NZ Warriors in NRL he was a decent second rower and was close to being in the NZ national team.
