Just thought i would open a thread to discuss the transfer dealings of other clubs in the league for the 2021 season and assess them.

There have been a few announced so far and i though it merited conversation. I will start with the obvious one

Greg Inglis - Warrington. Stellar name and a money draw. Good for Super League and media exposure but 2 years out of the game at his age with the compiled injuries he has sustained i can only see him as being a steady signing. We have seen it many times players coming over after superb careers but totally off the pace. There is a reason he had to sign for a Super League club and not an NRL one. In my opinion

James Tamou - Not signed (yet) but rumoured to be nailed on for Saints. Again was a superb player in his pomp but seemed to lose his way after Mitch Garbutt punched him into next week. I think he will do a decent job over here but he is nowhere near Luke Thompson standard. Saints will look completely different next season. Roby could possibly retire too. They could go from contenders to fighting to get into the top 4.

Andy Ackers - Salford. This has all the hallmarks of a club on the rapid decline and trying to operate way, way under the cap. Average is probably generous to him and can't see a future for Salford as a club after 2021.

Niall Evalds - Castleford. The best bit of business so far for me. Castleford have been looking for a full back with skill, speed and agility since Hardaker was given his marching orders. We could well see a return of the 'Classy Cas' we saw a few years ago. Linking up with 2 young energetic halves and working behind a powerful pack gives them all the ingredients they need.

May have missed some

Inclined to agree to an extent about Salford. I often wonder if Marwan wouldn’t have walked in waving his “wand” around buying over the bill, over expensive players and had actually done it right where they’d be. It’d be a damn sight better off from where they’re going anyway. Andy Ackers is a championship standard hooker at best, but on the flip side they do have some decent players and are more than capable of beating anyone in the league. The proposed signing of Escare is good IMO. He was decent for us and certainly had the speed to cause issues but his defence was abysmal.

Tamou is a good signing for me, not many better Thompson replacements available.

Cas also rumoured to be looking at Cain Evans.

They could start to be a side capable of consistently challenging for trophies as their halves mature and develop.

Ben Flower and Stevie Ward rumoured for Toronto in 2021. Both would be good signings for them I think. Personally I’d be disappointed to see Ben go but I think it would be the right move. I’d rather Clubb leave first mind but I’d imagine he’d be off when his contract is up.

He would be a good replacement for Millington, Cook or Moors

I think he could be a great signing for anyone in SL IF he keeps the attitude he currently has.

He is playing for a contract at Parra at the moment and going really well.

He has had a few off field issues and I expect that will follow him to the Uk should he come.

Totally agree about Clubb but Flower has already signed for Toronto and i wish him the absolute best. Been a good player for us consistently when fit. His best years are behind him thats for sure. Good signing for Toronto though i think.
