PROPS: Battye, Buttler, Ioane, Mason, Adebiyi, Richards
HOOKERS: Fozzard, Davies, Davis, Pelissier? Cunningham
SECOND ROWS: Gee, Hindmarsh, Pitts, Lovell
HALF BACKS: Meadows, Abdul
CENTRES: Kear, Hellewell, Fleming, Ogden
WINGERS: Williams, Dixon
FULL BACKS: Walker, Boafa

25 Deep now. If we ca't get Summat to re-sign then we will need to splash on a decent "general"....someone to steer us around the park. The Pack is looking good, with the exception of a loose forward, but the backs are still a concern for me.






JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

You can add Gideon Boafa to that list. Academy Full Back, just signed up. one would assume going out on loan but your never know these days.

I'm going to throw in MCB as a winger, Drinkwater at SH, and Sammut at SO. I'd have been on the phone to Davis/Warrington straight after the MPG looking for him to stay with us for a year, even if just on loan. We're going to miss him.

Building a pretty decent looking squad here, some good players coming in.
Davis and Warrington, pretty sure his G/f lives up there so reckon he would not be happy coming back on loan

My son tells me no speed in Abdul, not necessarily a disaster,
. Another young player with potential who hasn’t quite made it, Sammut is now key, he gives experience and can move the team around the field. I think sign him and we have got a squad to a i Eve our minimum requirement, second to bottom!

Will update the squad list when near a computer... Phone posts are a dangerous thing...... Can we make this a sticky Brian2?

The squad seems to be coming together nicely.
What pleases me is that we have signed a lot of young players who may have experience, but still have something to prove. We have not fallen into the trap of signing journeymen or past their best Aussies looking for a pension boost.

I understand that we are going back to Hull FC for another signing.

Regarding our new signings - do we actually rate them?
I mean I know we need extra numbers and SL experience but we haven't exactly got a marquee signing in there have we?

Not complaining about the numbers but could we do with a bit more quality?

Abdull is no slouch either.He is not a speedster but has enough pace to go the length of the field if put in the clear.
he is a big lad and his running style gives the appearance of not being fast.
