Acton(If he can stay on the pitch)
Joy (ready for the next level of his development along with Cunningham)
Stenchion (If fit)
McCulley (If his op is ok)
Onyango (if fit makes a big impact on team moral and go forward)

Think I'd let Boults and Clough go. Both really struggled last year and looked past their bests. Noone had a poor season but was one of our best the preceding year and would be 50/50 for me.
Joy, Langtree and Cunningham should be promoted to the first team but I'm not too sure about the rest of the reserves as I haven't watched enough of them to comment on them.
Would like to see a quality centre to partner Cookson and a quality half back to partner Ratty(possibly from super league). I'd really like to see some athleticism and dynamism in the side which I think we've lacked especially in the last two seasons..

Full back Sean Robinson ..... safe pair of hands and strong running ball out of defense
Wingers Jonny Gillam / Terry Bridge ( if he has put his problems behind him ) ....pace to burn on both flanks .... sad to say but think injuries catching up on Lucas so may be time to call it a day
Centres Dave Cookson / Michael Ward .... most improved players last season .. never get less than 100% commitment from both
Half backs Jamie Dalliemore / Tommy Connick .... these two were almost telepathic when playing together for reserves and main reason for that teams success imo ... would love to see them given a run at first team level ... if they can reproduce the form they showed in the reserves they could be a real handful for any defense
Props Liam Gilchrist / Jamie Acton / Phil Joy / Danny Langtree .... proved at back end of last season that they are all capable of hacking it at this level ... should all be bigger and stronger with a good pre season and another year older
Second row Chris Clarke / Sam Cunningham ....we all know that Nobby will give 100% and think Sam deserves a run ... could probably do with picking up at least another couple of players for these positions .
Loose forward Neil Roden .... thought this might be his best position last year as opposition teams know if they can target him and keep him quiet then we become a very predictable outfit .... feel that as loose forward he can pick and choose where he comes into the line making it much more harder for the opposition
to do a number on him ...could give him a new lease of life .
We could probably put together a stronger team of individuals with loan signings / dual reg players if there is a link up with a SL team as looks likely ( more than likely Salford given Scott Naylors connections there ) but morale / teamwork inevitably suffer with this type of player .RL is a team game and I would rather stick with our own players who have pride in the shirt and will scrap for each other .
Don't think for one moment we will get all these signed up but the more the better as far as I'm concerned . Think they would be good enough to get promotion at last and would hopefully be ready then for step up to next level .

He is a young and the type of player we should be building the team around.
