I was discusted to buy the league express monday to get no mension....

Was this just by mistake though? What always frustrates my dad is the lack of media coverage we get. Radio Leeds will announce Hunslet and Rhinos news but never any big Dewsbury signings.... Like Aizue...

I also follow Glenn which is useful and have to say i also think Tom deserves a huge pat on the back for keeping us all informed, hes doing a great job

The problem is we won't get the media coverage from Radio Leeds when we live in a area with lots of Super League teams around here.They did have some news about a resigning for Hunslet last week,it must had been a quiet news day for them,so they had to put something on the news that day.The rugby papers are better for our so called smaller clubs,but you are right about Tom,we are getting news about the club on a day to day basis,when its busy.When before you was lucky if the club's website was changed once a month.

There will definitely be a pretty significant announcement later this week.

If you don't already, then I'd advise you to follow Glenn on Twitter, as he's been keeping fans up to date with progress on signings (and is clearly more in the know than me!).

You don't have to 'have' Twitter to read Glenn's tweets. Just click on the link above and you should be able to get everything.

We're working on getting a picture of him in his Rams gear to replace the Wakey one on his profile pic!

It says on one of Glen's tweets,a new signing tomorrow,and more during the week :D

Gareth Walker does an excellent job of covering the Rams and the rest of the clubs in Championships on a weekly basis, and I was surprised to see us missing from Monday's League Express.

I'll speak with Martyn and Gareth this week and get to the bottom of it. :)

Tom
Your fixation with bottoms is disturbing.
I think the clubs policy of drip-feeding info is exactly what we need. We have seen so many speculative bids knocked back so it's refreshing to know that signings are in the bag. Congrats to Tom and the Rams in my opinion
Red Amber Black - Its that simple

Well we now know we won't be signing Ash Lindsay,strange he turned down Batley first offer,wonder if we had contract talks with him,or maybe he was asking for too much,and decided to take the first offer from Batley .

Apparently, there weren't any talks with Dewsbury, just an offer which he refused. He also didn't turn any Batley offer down. Just wanted to contemplate a possible retirement before saying yay or nay.

I agree, as I said elsewhere on the forum GM goes about his work in a very professional way, only making announcements once he is sure everything is finalised, and not feeding speculation.

If he runs the playing side as well as he is running the out of season business we will do well under his regime.

Can't really blame him for thinking about all his options,thanks for the information.

The news is being handled very well, congratulations to all concerned.

Tom, could you update the 2013 squad thread please?

OK thanks Tom. You're doing a great job, as always.

On the forum this thread still shows last update Sept 10th and no new postings so I haven't checked it out till now.

I'm not back BTW - still surviving in outside temperatures of 27C - it's tough I can tell you!

I'm just editing the same post, which is why it isn't showing up as a recent date.

According to the press, GM has almost completed his squad. So far it's a mixture of old faces, promising but untried kids and a couple of journeymen. I'd still like to see one or two "wow" signings - hope GM is saving the best until last. :unsure:
