Duffy has signed for Fax next year.  We have released him for the second year of his contract.

Watson has gone from Fax to Leigh.

Weve got Finch!   I can't quite work out who's done best out of all this?

Think Lupton from Castleford would be a good signing, reckon Castleford would release him if they get promoted.

Rudd at 6
Finch at 7
Lupton at 13

Still not sure about Finch, don't think he is any better or worse than Bainbridge. If we needed a new 7 to replace Duffy, the best local option would have been Liam Campbell from Worky.

As of tonight Duffy is a 100% Haven player FACT, but doesn't say that it will not change. His reasons for leaving if he does i susoect will be family perosnal reasons.

Bainbrige Campbell Finch et al.  Are not even close to Duffy in terms of ability.

Fax will have Duffy and Holroyd

Salford will have Paul and Witshire

Widnes will have Hermania and Moran or something similar

Leigh will have Watson and Penny

Haven Finch and Rudd!!!  We need a very good scrum half to replace Duffy>

ok,

So if duffy has signed for fax, surely we will be getting a transfer fee. I for one do not believe that our BOD would let a player of Duffy's calibre go for nowt !

Where are Fax getting all this money from, i predict the begging buckets out for the end of next season

I wouldn't count on the BOD acting all responsible and businesslike in respect of insisting on a fee for Duffy, if indeed he does go, just look at the shambles when Steve Mac went to Widnes after allegedly signing a new deal. Also, think back to when Wilkes went to Wigan and they promised to send a team to Haven pre season, as part of some 'deal'. We got the under 18's!! The BOD's business acumen leaves alot to be desired. It is vital to get a new coach in asap, so he can identify the players HE wants.
