It's not that we haven't signed a 'name'. We have - Ainscough. If he stays fit, he guarantees us at least 20 tries this season. The other players we've brought in are also quality additions. You've raised doubts over nearly every signing we've made during this close season - either on this forum or on Facebook. That's whilst almost rabidly criticising the release of a player who couldn't even get in the York team last season, and expressing your annoyance on another forum that we didn't give a useless, overweight lump of a prop 'more of a chance'. Make of that what you will.
Mixed feelings here: when I dared to suggest our recruiting hadn't thrown up a 'name' somebody had a go at me, now Flanagan and Allan oops Kain have gone to Hawks, seems like many fans quite fancied them for us, as Kain especially has been long touted. Yes, at the moment both are on the sick list, but there's still 7 weeks before kick-off. Our half backs do look light, unless Grayston is being primed as a stand-in, we did need another half back either to start the season with some experience or as back up because at the moment, 1 bad injury to Cain or Scotty leaves us struggling. Like someone else says though, we still have chance to bring someone in, we won't know til kick off where we stand. I'm sure JK and KN are on it.
My concern is simply that we haven't replaced Black with an experienced player who could have slotted in without any worries and given Leatherbarrow the guiding hand he needs. I've no other worries at all about our squad.
