Bit of unclear info coming from club re fitness and recruitment so just reaching out for some info. So with Ashworth and Butler in the squad looks like there is some player movement. Anyone know the status of others? Also injury / fitness status is Ellis nearing fitness? Have long now for Flower and how is Ryan. Sorry to see Peats and Peteru go if that is the case but understand we need more bodies of a very good calibre to come in asap to bolster the squad.

This news gives us all hope Mo,Derek must still have some fight in him , as it’s crazy to bring these players all this way for a holiday , I applaud Derek , he isn’t stupid , and hopefully it’s not all doom and gloom .

I have been reading and hearing from independent sources for many weeks, that behind the scenes has been an endless knocking on doors and tireless chasing of players all season, especially in recent weeks. This weeks news is a clear sign, as Charlie quite rightly says, that Derek and the club have far from given up on this season.
Two wins behind our nearest rivals and only halfway through the season. It may ultimately not be enough but I’m not giving up on our club and refuse to buy into the negativity brigade.
53 years of support will not stop there from me !
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

I’d take anything Mo says with a pinch of salt as he just feeds off the rumours - however his latest feed is in line with Monty, who generally is not far off the mark.

Don’t know Derek personally, but he’s doesn’t strike me as the type of guy who sits there twiddling his thumbs - he must have thicker skin than a Rhino with the carp he gets off fans, the majority of who do diddly squit to help and then criticise at the first opportunity

Not trying to be critical here but we’re hardly likely to temp regular NRL first teamers over here are we.

Looked where we need to strengthen and acted on it, whether it’s the right decision and makes any difference remains to be seen - not aimed at you but no doubt many fans will have a whinge either way

Ashworth also appears to be a very astute signing, although I think we may miss Peats

not complaining just quoting report.!!

Mc Donald is 108kg said to be quick Stone is just 23

no one has attracted any top class international imports the contracts in oz are just to big now
apparently the signing we missed from giants was a hooker so we may miss Peats

lets see if Cas b team can see off Salford this aft keep us in the ball game
Next
