I just wonder where all these new players will play . I would hope that if any player leaves they are going onto bigger clubs I.e. super league like last close season. Many of our squad would enhance super league just as zak proved.

A lot of the announced signings are young which is the way to go and a year in our league with Rovers will make them excellent players . A lot of teams in our league are spending big on players which leads me to believe promotion and relegation will start from next season. Let's see what today's bulls announcement brings.


In my opinion, we need some strengthening in a couple of positions for next season. We're short of cover at prop, and possibly wing if Tangi doesn't stay. I'd also like to see us sign a hooker to rotate with Benny Kaye, who offers a bit more in attack. As has been suggested elsewhere, Andy Ellis please. :D

i asked at the match last night if we would be running a 19s and 23s next season. i was told that the rfl haven't decided on the format yet, we may get to know sometime next month. how on earth can clubs recruit when they dont know what teams they will be running.

That is poor tbh. At least all clubs are in the same boat with that one, so we're not at a disadvantage compared to our competitors.

I reckon they are both Wakie players. They said they were going to be paraded before the Leigh game. Then at the Leigh game said there were in the super league playoffs. Wakie are the only team who made the playoffs in the last few days. All other clubs were int the playoffs already so they could of never been shown at Leigh game. I'll go for fox or cockayne along with Ellis.

The return of either player would be amazing considering how well they are both playing and loved by the Trinity supporters , huge testament to the Rovers club spirit.

Mick Haley? Do we know if he has been offered a new contact?

Has looked good when fit but been unlucky with injuries.

My only concern would be that these "big super league" players are dropping a division and playing only for money and not for the club. Hope I'm wrong and I'm sure DP is wise enough not to pick players like this or let it happen, but the doubt is still there!

Something that has happened when we have signed big players in the past is, it sometimes causes friction within the squad due to the lower paid player thinking that the higher paid player should do more work i.e. tackles/runs so slacks off.

I really don't think Daryl will allow such nonsense to ruin the team spirit.

An outside punt might be Matt James to replace Malloney.
