Wasn't impressed with Levi , an average player at best ,hence why he spent most of his time on DR with us.

This season shows we need to run with a larger squad of our own players next year and bin the DR with Hull , too many times this year when we have needed quality we have ended up with also-rans costing us home advantage in the play off games as I feel at home we beat both Oldham and Newcastle for promotion.

I hope there will be large scale changes next year with more quality available ,........................holding on to Matty B is a must as is Brandon Douglas,.... Matty Chrimes has shown up well this year but i think most of our pack has been dominated by bigger more aggressive forwards as proved at Oldham and Newcastle.

By the looks of twitter and facebook Kez , Connor Scott and Connor Bower are 100% leaving , I heard Russ Spiers dad say he is bound for Fev.......... which would really surprise me as he is solid but dont think he is at that level.

Im sure given the supposed restructure at the end of next year the club will be trying all they can to sign proven quality players and gain automatic promotion next year , hopfully time will tell as the club announce next years retained and released players.

Not been good enough in the forwards all the year, but especially in the play-offs and yet the the really good stuff from Hull was not really good forwards.
Jack Brown had a blinder in his first game and got MOTM and then never stood out again and not prop-sized really.
Washbrook is very competent, but a second rower size and has played his best rugby.
Levy is prop size, but didn't punch his weight have a good step or swivel/roll.
We had a couple of other good Hull forwards but for only a couple of games and they didn't qualify.
So a bit of a pig's ear really for big lads.
We had the halfs and backs and then lost the season in the forwards or the middles (cringe) as they get called.

Wasn't impressed at all with Jack Brown, one good game the rest were poor.
Against Oldham in the league and London away he dropped more ball than he caught, and lacked impact coming off the bench.

We need another player like Feka , a prop that carries the ball and skittles the opposition , not some pony that runs half hearted.

RH in the free press states we need to bring in players to push for promotion , lets see what the next few weeks bring with regards to announcements.

Richard Owen has announced his retirement on twitter, thanks to him for his efforts. Struggled with injury this year so probably a good decision for him

Yes he had the class, was wasted on the wing during his games there and it was injuries that held him back, like so many of the good players in our side this season.
Never saw enough of them.

I was surprised not to see more of Jack Logan this season as he hardly featured for Hull , don't know if he was injured but always went well in a Dons shirt.
As for the other DR players can anyone say they were better than we already had?

The one for me would be Jez Litten who I always felt gave us something to complement Kyle Kesik.

This is no slight on Keiran Cross who I would love to see in the team but who just seems damned with injuries.

i think Crossy has been a big miss since he got injured again.

Yep we have suffered with our most talented.
I had forgotten about Cross.

I see that Horne is disappointed...is that it?
