If Gildart is going I hope so. We’ll face stiff competition though.

Is there something I'm missing with Toby King? He is a younger player with a starting spot, playing well in a team that will challenge for trophies. Why would he want to leave for another SL team? Why would Wire want him to leave? Neither makes a lot of sense to me, we are working to the same salary cap as them, have roughly the same trophy prospects going forward, and he is already settled there. I think he's just using this interest to get the best contract he can out of Warrington. A couple more seasons then try his hand at NRL or RU if things go well.

Agreed mate, really bizarre. When was the last time a really good young player moved from a top team in SL to another team ?

Fully expect him to re-sign with Wire on good money. Great player.

I guess it all comes down to what his drivers are really and what his ambitions in the game are.

He isn’t a local lad to Warrington so no long term ties there.

I understand KR have put in a massive bid for his services and his brother is there so maybe there is that.

Powell is being strongly linked to taking Peter Matautia to Wire with him along with Holmes and others who may eat into the cap.

He may not be a big fan of Powell.

Lots to consider.

I personally expect him to move, just a feeling.

He’d be daft not to listen to other clubs and I’m sure he is. I get the feeling HKR have probably offered him a deal far in excess of what Wire have or what teams like Saints or Wigan will but with all due respect to HKR, I doubt he’s desperate to go there and is probably hoping it drives up his offer from Warrington. I’d be really surprised if he isn’t at Warrington in 2022.

Just a couple of things.

Re: Hill - Having the captaincy really took its toll on Hill for some reason. He's had a new lease of life this year not having the captaincy. He is now just playing prop like he did when he first joined and he is playing far better. He's not giving away the penalties he was giving away the last few years as well. I also think he hasnt been helped with the lack of bench props we've had. Him and Cooper have carried the pack. This year, he's still playing decent minutes but hes not being run to exhaustion like he has been previously. He would be a decent signing for any team, we've got some big boots to fill if he does go.

With regards to King. I have no idea whats going on and either do any fans. Seems a really strange one. He's settled at the club, popular with team mates. However with him being a Huddersfield lad he has no real emotional ties to Warrington like Philbin or Cooper despite coming through the ranks. At one point i thought he was a one trick pony, great for taking kicks to the corner and that was it. However he really has developed, his confidence has grown and he takes a more leading role. I really hope we dont lose him to another SL team. He has ambitions of the NRL and i'd be happy for him to go there. Just like Clark, all fans want him to stay but all fans would be happy with what hes given to the club and would wish him well in the NRL

£££££ - I expect as he's come through the ranks, he isn't on what he should be, Warrington are splurging the cap on imports and big names, something has to give to balance the books
