The possibility of who has signed for us is questionable, the criteria fits a lot of players though, this could be: Keith Mason, Wayne Godwin, Brett Hodgson (although unlikely), Paul Wellens (who I'm certain won't be in the red amber and black next season), Leon Pryce, and many more.

 

 

Most amusing.

 

The chairman has already stated many months ago that we will be working on a similar budget to this year, so none of these fantasy players will be coming. Mason is a possibility but he would jump at a SL chance if anyone offered it and would only come to us if there was nowhere else - money speaks very loudly for him. (Besides which could he ever be the towering hero for the club that his father was?)

 

The mystery full back will remain a mystery for some time yet, I hear, but if he does come wouldn't cost us anything like the amount of money that some of these named would. I don't expect any major revelations and will be most interested in who we retain from this year first - that will be a clear indication of our ambitions and expectations for next year.

 

Also, will season tickets increase in price significantly? This is an intriguing possibility isn't it - no increase means a reduced income for the club in real terms, a large increase means a probable loss of some ST holders, which means that a modest increase is likely and should be taken to indicate a reflection of our expectations for the coming season.

I don't believe that I will be at this meeting but there is one topic that I hope the Chairman is able to comment upon, possibly at length. Next week is the meeting scheduled by the RFL at which the league structure for 2015 and onwards is to be discussed and decided, if I understand correctly. In advance of this I assume that all club representatives will have been provided with comprehensive information about the options and their potential implications and if these could be shared it would be most informative for fans. I think that it is important for fans to understand all of the issues that clubs such as ours have to deal with in mapping out their route forward and that it is a bit more complex than the quality of beer in the South Stand bar or the condition of a prop forwards right knee.

 

Whichever structure is decided upon, and we have a clear insight into the RFL leaderships preferred options if not their implications, will of course have a major bearing upon the recruitment policies of all clubs for next season. Comments upon this will be most interesting,

That's not the name I've heard although I would possibly be shaken (but not stirred) if this is correct.

If it's Joe Bond, that would be a pretty exciting signing - very quick.

A few mystery signings on the cards, and maybe a few surprises too, I personally thin Wayne Godwin, as I thought that if we're signing a (former) super league player, and Wayne Godwin is in talks with an unnamed championship team (as league weekly said) I put 2 and 2 together and put Godwin in the limelight.

I don't know what will happen in terms of season ticket prices, and what income it will bring for that matter, I didn't hear too much on it, I guess this is what tonight is for eh? :ph34r:

Think roger rams putting an audio from the night on here, some good news in terms if the future of the club and the game if the rfl give the expected go ahead to the planned restructure, which mark sawyer fully supports as it creates more prize money allround and promotion to superleague should we achieve it on merit.

Mark Sawyer said only two had declined offers, one being James Craven as he wanted to play at full back and Keighley offered this and on greater terms.
