Ok so a Challenge Cup Final win so some silverware but ultimately a club with our resources should be aiming for top spot and a GF win.
More to the point, our style of play has been nothing short of clueless. If we are to be held in the same respect as Wigan. Saints and Leeds then our mindset needs to change.

Our pack needs an overhall with too many living off previous seasons accolades.

Ratchford, Clark, Austin and Philbin - Superb
Akouala, Charnley, BMM, Cooper, Currie and Hughes - Decent even if inconsistent.

The rest have been very underwhelming. Our priorities need to be a couple of new props, a centre, and to be more ruthless with our underperforming players. Other than Widdop, our recruitment looks very poor compared with others which is what worries me.

To properly review this I reckon you need to know how long each of the current squad are contracted, it’s not something i know.

We need props. Hill and Cooper are 32 an 31 respectively, they are only going down hill from now on. Philbin has really come on but Akauola has been hit and miss and doesn't do the minutes whilst Tasi was an absolute waste of a jersey.

Loose forward has been a problem for a few seasons, Jason Clark gives us nothing going forward.

We're missing one or two centres. Toby King may still develop (he's 23). Burrell is a salary-cap-free gamble, no certainty that he'll make the transition and not necessarily as a centre. Ashton may move towards the middle but he needs to show that he can step up / time to develop.

Currie needs to regain some form next season or move on, he's most likely taking up a big chunk of the cap.

The rest is down to coaching.

With Widdop and Austin you'd hope the shackles will come off...they better had. A bloody good attacking centre is needed and J Clark to become droppable whilst he remains. Saying all that if we don't sign one hard nosed quality prop that leads by example then we're knackered. That should be a huge priority.

Don't you think J Clark is droppable enough already?!

I find it amusing that all hopes and dreams of success are being put on Biscuit Shoulders shoulders






All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.
