whilst they are good signings, they had to replace real quality in Tomkins, Richards, Mossop and Hansen.
We have 4 out of 5 of the spine of the team going round again.
We shall see how much we miss the others, but a fit Bowen can contribute as much as Sam last year, and if we can develop a good kicker we needn't lose any sleep over Richards. Sadly, he was never the same after his Achilles. We have far more attacking options in the second row. We could miss Mossop, as we haven't signed a like for like. Be fascinating to see how Wane intends to cover this. Having seen us perform in the knock out games last year, I can't wait to see how this squad goes this time around.
