 I'd suspect Widnes will snap up alot of the 'free agents'.
You are really a superfan amongst super fans in fact your the no.1 fan in Cumbria. Congratulations.

I suspect if waht paul Crarey has said in the paper is correct we are after one more signing in the backrow.

That could be poss Tandy as he played B/R for KR last year but i doubt it as I think he has burn't his bridges in Cumbria.

More likley it will be an Aussie S/R L/F recommended by Rod Reddy to Crarey.  I just hope its a guy who will standout in NL1.  Arron Trinder would have been ideal fro example .. I dont know why we didn't go after him. He has signed for Dewsbury now but he could playy s/r prop played first team with Manley was a powerful run like tnady and had a very good attitude apparently also.

Will the lads who are rumoured to have left be really missed? None of them were good enough to play regular first team football, not the end of the world!

Maybe we did go after trinder.  It's ok saying go after him and him but unless they want to come here we find it difficult to compete.

Both  could  be  a  good  source  of  talent. 

Talking  of  sources  the  name  Tandy  crops  up  a  bit. :)
