Karl Harrisons son looked pretty good last year at Feathertone and I think he played against us in the cup. Surprised he hasnt been picked up by a sl club. He can play prop or second row. Could be useful at moment.

We need a front row to come in this season on loan for a couple of months
Cant see a Championship side wanting to loan out a front row if he is decent so it would have to be from an out of favour or young player at a S/L club
This situation was bound to happen as many of us said we overloaded on backs at the expense of a front row

As you say most of us said that we were thin on the ground at the start of the season and unfortunately its coming home to roost a bit.

I’m sure BH knew the squad was unbalanced when he took over, and he’ll no doubt be looking to address that in 2022

On a serious note, I'm looking forward to seeing what players Brett brings in, he's obviously spoke about as a real student of the game so should have a good eye for a player.

I think if we lose Shaul and Faramio, then we need to bring in another winger, I would love us to to sign Tom Davies, fantastic young, British winger.

Forwards I think we need two, Lawler (Would love Bentley, but I can't see him leaving Saints unless he goes to the NRL) and an overseas prop, I'd try and make a move for Fifita from Wakey, if not the NRL.

I'm not convinced by Johnstone, so I'd also be looking at another hooker if possible.

Have full confidence in Hodgsons recruitment, he will have good contacts in the NRL and will use Ellis and KP for the SL and championship recruitment.

I like Tom Davies as well, really quick. I’d love him at Hull.
Lawler is decent but not sure if he’s too similar to what we already have. It is funny the talk about the Dobbins signing Toby King. They need to be signing Lawler up first!

Also notice that Radford is looking at Westerman again for Cas.

I like Westerman and overall I thought he did well at Hull and would have kept him.

King is a good player, but don't think he as good as people make out, be a good signing for Rovers as better than SKD and British. I know his brother is there but I'd be surprised to see him leave Warrington for Rovers, unless there offer is very high.

I like Lawler and think he offers a bit more going forward that Cator (Cator has strengths in other areas), can play prop too. Be happy to sign him, but wouldn't be devastated if we didn't get him.

Definitely need one more forward, two is anyone leaves.
