North Wales Crusaders are putting together a tidy looking squad. They have just signed Mark Offerdahl the USA prop.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Well we need IMO - a full back - winger - centre - 2 props - 1 back row ....

Few to find especially at this time of the year

Well if that's what Haven need, it's what they need. But why would we be worried about that?

I would agree with that list but change 1 prop for one half . I think Shacks could see more game time at prop .

I dont think we need another winger, we have ell and haney, and with flynn on dual reg I wouldnt be wasting money on another wing. Were desperate for another half but I think callum and lupton need to be given a long run as a partnership. As for centres we have plenty and although none are going to set the world on fire the likes of dan rooney will thrive with a more experienced callum getting the ball out wide to him, again with hulme coming in we can use the money elsewhere. A fullback has to be our next signing, whether its brett or a new signing. Maybe even give connor a run there.

We need a squad tho - we can't just go with 2 wingers one of which will be moved to FB as cover meaning JP will get a call up - last season we did ok - now have lost thacks / dowes / calders / acton / obvs walne carter ? There's some experience there - needs to add to our squad year on year not start from scratch . A halfback would be nice but Lupton / Callum - forber is ok there - you get too many options in there and too many changes happen - has anyone mentioned a goal kicker is forber won't make the 13 ?

How do you know Flynn and Hume are coming ? Why should we rely on duel reg ?

because why have dual reg if your not going to utilise it. Do you see paddy and declan playing many games for widnes? I doubt it and both have shown eagerness to play for town, so its a bit of an obvious match.

wheres he off mate. Hes one we all seemed to think was set to deliver but he just never did, a couple of sparks but other than that a bit lackluster. He never come in and involved himself enough for my liking.

Can't make my mind up if I want him or not . He has the physique and some wheels , and there looks a good player in there , but we only actually saw it in brief flashes . Whether they found his position may be a part of it , as well as the structure we play . Don't know , can't help feel that with another offseason he'd be a more than handy utility player , but more end product needed . Also if he got better ball to the fringes if he plays out there . And deadly goal kicker .
