With Alex Walker on the verge of signing for Wakefield and others having signed elsewhere for 2020, what sort of squad will we end up scraping together next year??

Disappointing once again to hear last night many signings from Our Club ready to be announced, it something that seems to happen annually, I think it is completely wrong the date that The RFL set for players to be signed so early, this morning once again there are several players from Super League clubs moving.

The only positive is how well Our First Class Academy played at the weekend to beat The City of Hull Academy in Hull, some real talent there, I suppose clubs in The North will already be keeping an eye on them.

It's just not all about money our players sign for clubs in the North, it is their future these clubs can offer, and this season our position in the league does not help.

It is ludicrous to have the window open so early in the season. It absolutely cripples clubs at the bottom.

For us, we face two possibilities in 2020 - either we rebuild the team in SL or we rebuild it in the Championship. The former leaves us guaranteed to be in a relegation fight next season, the latter struggling to put together a team capable of winning the league. As in so many other respects, this is a joke of the RFLs making.

It is positive that we are continuing to develop players to a level that is attracting bigger clubs. However, there is probably a decent SL side out there of London developed players.

So Walker to Wakefield, Abdull to HKR. Anyone know of the other players that have turned down contracts or are on the move???

Lets face it, why would any of our players commit to London?? Favourites to go down, seeing their team mates getting offers from elsewhere. The club has shown pretty much zero ambition on or off the pitch this year. Yes we have a great academy but we are not producing players for a London SL team, we are producing players for the rest of SL. I just find it really gutting tbh.

Very much echo this sentiment.

Morgan Smith has signed on apparently for next year and we are close to signing Corey Aston from Castleford.

Some good news at last. Great to keep hold of Smith. I like Aston. If we go down, we have a very good Champ player and if we stay up we have a hungry young player looking to prove himself.

It's not to doom and gloom lads the halves will be key. Corey Aston would be interesting signing needs to prove something and was very highly rated. And I'd imagine quite cheap salary wise, I am interested in what we do at full back with walker going.
It's been a few years but I'd put kear there. I think it's best position and wear to small at centre for me thats were I'd try to recruit.

Obviously just my opinion and I know it sucks to see players leave. Will just be fascinating to see if we're still in SL.

If we stay up and say up 5 leave we would have a lot of money bro spend. And are recruitment in the last 3/4 years has been brilliant with are budget.
