Interesting you think there is an available pool of local talent that are good enough to challenge for promotion, that the club can afford and above all else want to play for the club....if you cant change the people, change the people.
Fair Point Expat you are correct, although there are one or two players available from within the town, are they are good enough for the 1st team, week in week out is another thing, but this is not just about players, local talent can include coaching staff also.
I think the point is that local lads like Sheridan on the playing side and Matt Calland on the coaching side dont appear to have been given any chance or any input into the 1st team, there seems a bias towards the St Helens based / dual reg'd players, who to be fair really havent done it regularly enough, it all helps under pin the impression we are losing some of our identity, I suppose the common view would be that 'local lads' would at least put the effort in and actually act like they care, which is something that the current squad is being acussed of.
At the end of the day and no matter where this partnership goes we would at least be left with something to call upon when Saints clear off.
In all honesty though, and in most cases (although being Hornets we would still get plenty of moaners) if we where in the position NWC are, sat top of league and blasting almost everybody away would anybody be complianing where the players come from? so long as they where doing the business for the club is all that counts with a set up that blends local identity within a succesfull team.
Unfortunatley we dont appear to have much of either currently.
