just having a look at the players we have signed on and are team looks good. But if we get a couple of injuries we might strugle if calvert or abesi or any of are back line go down who is goner come in and play who wont look out of place. just my opinion

If we can sign a prop that can make easy yards then i think we'll have a good season.  An expansive support game sounds good but the reality of the modern game (organised defence, (full time) fitness, rotating subs, video preperation)  makes good go forward up the middle essential.  St Helens are the best example, when fozard, graham, cayless and fasavalu are'nt making quick yards one out,  pryce, roby, wellens and long step in and do the same from dummy half.  Then they have space to play.   Tandy 'like' would be ideal for us, i dont know much about Gannon, he is any good?  I fear Jacko, McDonnald & fats, either through age or lack of condition, will, at best, only provide 15-20 bursts.

i think we need a top prop and use the quota place for next season when gary broadbent retires or moves on so a classy aussie full back is needed

Why waste money on a Overseas Full Back when we have Benson sitting in the wings, played very well when in firts team last year.

Quota player needs to be a Top Draw Half Back, something we have missed last 2 seasons.

if gannon signs he will take the over seas place, he is a tough forward makes good yards and gets a quick play the ball, works hard in defence to, maybe we could tempt nicky beech up the coast from barrow?

The quoata spot needs to be used to sign a matchwinner not just a "player" to say we've got an overseas player
