new signings so far-wayne godwin,Anthony Thackeray,tom Hemmingway,matt haggerty,jobe murphy,shaun robinson,louis sheriffe,re-signed Morton,buchanan,watkinson,pryce,brown,hyde,nash,wright,hepworth,hale,tonks,aizue,lillycrop,scott,gallagher,spicer,good signings n re-signings imo n season tickets have been frozen

 

 

Frankly I'm surprised to see Hyde and Watkinson included in that list and would assume that they won't be the firts names on the teamsheet. Has Jones been released? Any reference to DR?

 

And why no mention of Leon Pryce, McGoldrick, Platt, Wally Lewis etc? Surely these weren't just baseless rumours as we had it on good authority...................................

Thought Brad Watkinston got better as the season went on remember blind side Johnny he only came in mid season and had to settle in after moving from New Zealand which takes time with a proper pre season under his belt we good see a quality player here. Was suspirsed about Hyde been retained but he gives us back up to a few positions which every team needs.

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.

 

 

By implication then those who haven't been named didn't receive offers, Schofield for example?

Is it good enough to finish top eight, probably but only just is my guess!

Now where did I leave that pointy thing that bloke Damocles gave me, I've work to do!

2 players were talking to are playing in the World Cup at min so unlikely to sign until later, if they do. I think the signings of Hemingway and Thackeray and the well respected in the game by players and fans alike godwin( read all his tweets on twitter!!)are key for us alongside a fit again brown as with all due respect to goulding and Hyde who played half back most the year, they ain't the greatest and I feel Hemingway and Thackeray will work we'll together, Hemingway for his kicking and thackerays a tremendous support player who scores bags of try's! Also the fullback who was at hull kr Louie sherriff could be one to watch, very highly rated hence Brisbane signed him from hull kr, got man of match again rhinos for hull kr before he left for oz so obviously a good player. Another big prop, a second row and a centre will complete our squad nicely. Interesting to note too that Glenn can't believe Shaun Robinson ain't been looked at by a superleague club or championship club as glen feels he could play superleague

Wev also increased our playing budget by 50 percent so the directors have pumped more of the their own money in to the club as it is worth it getting in superkeague 2 ( won't be called superleague 2 though, will have a better name once the sponsor is announced) next season , purely for the financial reward it will bring and bigger gates. Sawyer actually feels if the plans do go ahead as expected the game will be a lot better for it and as an exciting future. The club sponsors will be announced after the future of the game is officially announced

Sounded like a positive meeting. Mark sawyer certainly sounded excited by the planned changes to the structure of the game.

It will be good to have something meaningful to play for again!!

The signings sound quite good, I think we need to strengthen the pack a bit more though.

As distinct from avoiding relegation you mean?

Squad looks stronger especially with the new half backs and Godwin at hooker.

Didn't realise Ben Jones had not re-signed, he was a good player.

But definitely a better squad than last year and Mark Sawyer very positive about the future.

I think "it" would be more apt and it would be a dogs fan like its daddy not a rams fan like its mummy!

Probably end up a Rhinos fan like every buggr else. Blind Pig sounds like a good user name though - on second thoughts it reminds me of an old girlfriend. :O

That would make 3 dogs fans then. You, your pretend friend, and your kid. Poor sod would have no childhood due to constant bully at school!
