Hopefully Balmforth will get a decent amount of gametime this season and will show he's ready to be playing first team every week, the last thing we need is another Litten situation where a player gets frustrated with a lack of playing time and leaves.


That's the ideal situation, him and Staverley get and take their chance in the first team and we have a 9 and another forward, means we can spend money and quota places in other areas.

Just don't have alot of faith with the club in regards bringing players through.

I do wonder if Lewis had signed for us, would he have made the progress he has at Rovers?

As a hooker,I quite like the look of Liam Horne at Cas in the few games I've seen him.

I think he may have, I believe he had a loan spell at Newcastle and really performed well scoring something like 10 tries in 10 games and that really seemed to be the making of him to go back to Rovers at progress.

Why would McMeeken sign for Hull? It's likely he could have the pick of every club. I also doubt that Clifford would come back to the UK.


Plus he has already agreed to sign for Rovers. Rovers still hoping to bring him in this season as part of the Abdull agreement.

You don't half talk some rubbish, why would Catalans give you Mcmeeken mid season, you have already loaned them Abdul, what would they get out of letting Mcmeeken go to you now.

If available I'd also take a risk on Abdul, play him 13, give us another quota spot to play with.


we should have gone all out to bring Westerman back this season
Would have made a huge diffence to our attack
Not interested what he does behind the pub
This culture thing goes out the window when you have two sent off and one yellow carded in the first match

Would 4/5 good signings make a different?

Let's say Carlos, Hoy, Mcintosh, Lane and Houghton leave.

We sign an English centre, I'd target Corey Hall or Jack Broadbent.

An overseas 7 (Clifford, Hawkins, Volkman etc)

A UK backrower, or prop (Mcmeeken)

NRL loose forward like Anista

Walker
Tindall
Hall
Sutcliffe
Martin
Trueman
Hawkins
Ese'ese
Brown
Sao
Okunbor
Mcmeeken
NRL LF

Pele
Ashworth
Balmforth
Fash/Brown

Wouldn't take that much money, need to make smart signings.

Watched York last week, liked the look of Oli Field (ex Leeds academy), definitely worth keeping an eye on.


Hall and Broadbent are two young players that really do have a big future in the game
Said last season we should go for Broadbent as he can also play six which would have helped enormously this season.
Both have pace to burn

If he is not on the bench for Friday then something is seriously wrong between him and Smith

You don't need him, you are after the young, well disciplined JWH.

Tbf I'd like to see JWH over here for 1 season. Even if it is for them lot.

Might be a complete disaster but it'd be fun to watch him.

Heard some crazy stat that the Roosters win around 80% or the games he plays in, but it drops to around 60% when he doesn’t
