    Leigh V Bulldogs MOM shield thread

    Brown Jouffret Galbraith Brown was back to his best today. Huge talent.

    Bulldog inbound Jack Downs

    Very pleased with this signing, looks like a ready-made replacement for Day. I imagine there'll have been a fair bit of competition for him, too.

    He's gone, time to forget about him and move on.

    Happy with this. Decent, experienced back up for two very good first choices in Campbell and Reittie.

    Alex Rowe leaving

    Don't get me wrong, I've been a huge fan of Rowe. It's just that I think the impact he makes has progressively declined over the last few seasons. That's due to both age and all the pasty he's taken over his career. We need to be looking for the next Rowe now, not hanging on to a player who will need replacing sooner rather than later. As for Holland, we need to let him go. Clearly not a player of Championship quality and very disappointing given his size. Sadly, I think Lillycrop might be on his way too. Given his style of play, the shoulder injury he suffered has impacted massively upon his effectiveness.

    Alex Rowe leaving

    A fantastic player for us over the years. However, the reality is that he's past his best and has probably stayed for at least a season too long. He'll be unstoppable in Championship 1, though.

    BISSA SIGNING ALERT Louis Le Bulldog 2019

    Oh, don't get me wrong. I think he has potential and is a good signing. However, in the majority of games I've seen him play in he hasn't really stood out (in my opinion). What I'm trying to say is that the two passes you highlight and one good game against Barrow doesn't warrant us putting all our financial eggs in one basket. I really hope that's not the case.

    BISSA SIGNING ALERT Louis Le Bulldog 2019

    A good signing, he's very promising. However, I hope we haven't put all of our eggs in one basket with this. He's gone missing in the majority of games I've seen him play in. Barrow away looks to have been an impressive exception, though.

    Rowe, Davey, Farrell and Crookes

    I see Ward and Smeaton have signed new deals. Very pleased that Ward is staying but very surprised that Smeaton was even offered terms. He's been terrible this season and has done nothing whatsoever to warrant an extended stay.

    And on a wing and a prayer

    Reittie has been a fantastic player for our club in both his spells here. 100% effort week in, week out. Delighted that he's staying. The guy would run at a brick wall if it meant scoring a try.

    Batley A

    Jouffret hasn't really done much to convince me that we should fork out for him next season. If he was that good, John Kear would have taken him to Bradford.

    Dewsbury sunday

    I absolutely agree Phil. The reality is that Featherstone only finished two places above us in the regular season. The fact that they're probably taking our best player is pretty depressing. It would soften the blow if Brad was leaving for a stint at Wakefield or similar, which is the level at which he deserves to be showcasing his talents.

    Attendances over the last three seasons.

    Rowe, Davey, Farrell and Crookes

    With Bradford and York likely to come up, I really fear for us next season unless we bring in some quality. Given his performance against Swinton, Jouffret looks like a player we need to retain. However, the likelihood is that he'll end up at Bradford with Kear if he continues to impress over the next few weeks. Brad Day and Harrison are very likely to be on their bike. That's two quality players we'll struggle to replace just for starters.

    Rowe, Davey, Farrell and Crookes

    The only one of those I would be truly disappointed about losing is Davey. I've heard that Walker is also to be released. If true, that'd be absolutely baffling.
