If widnes go part time who would we think would be worth chasing.

I think Wilkes, Smith, Beswick and Griz will all go to SL teams to be honest.

I would certainly make a big play to get Nannyn back up.  He is top points scorer every year in this league.  I would also take Summers.  He is non quota and a decent if unspectacular prop which is def a positon we need to strengthen.

We could also go for Penny at scrum half although he would be quota.

Heard that Smith is retiring due to chronic knee problems, best hooker in NL1 would like to see him with good knees.

Also heard that Wilkes going to Leeds, find that hard to believe

i have always like blanche for widnes gotta say never liked playing against him hes a complete winger in everyway size strength and speed and would go so well on the other wing to replace maden but too late hes gone to wakefield so thats him gone but yea wilkes and grix hes a good attacking fullback and broady is getting a bit old now so we need a quality fullback replaceent but we let maden go but he would have done well at fullback given time so anouther mistake why do we sighn class players and let them go right away
