squad for next year

34 posts in this topic

Not sure who it would be but I wouldn't mind seeing a ball handling loose forward who would be capable of plugging a gap at stand off if Briggys was injured or suspended. Not that I have a problem with the lads who have played 13 this season as they have all done decent jobs just a personal opinion that it would be nice to have a specialist loose forward.

That was the plan with danny Allan I reckon pal, but don't think he's been at all impressive

I agree for me he has been the biggest disappointment. How about briggs at 13, and kain/finn scrum half half back?

Im not sure we should write Danny Allan off just yet, Ultimately we may have to. He came with big wraps and surely he cant have turned poor overnight maybe their are things not right that we are dont know about lets hope the coach can work on him.

Having said that it would be interesting to see Briggs at lose, though not sure he has the size.

Danny Allen made his starts at Leeds at stand-off, for us he's player LF, centre and I believe second row, so maybe just a case of him finding his prefered position.

Why what have you heard to make you think Stu won't be here?

Of course Stu will be here next year Paul, and hopefully for many more seasons. He is like old wine is the lad. Maturing every season, but lets face it, he is the veteran of the team and will, at some stage, be a first class addition to the backroom staff.

Last two seasons, has played some of his best rugby. Credit to the game.

Yes mate I guess thats what we were looking for with Danny. When Danny has played he has been steady away and done well but nothing earth moving. I think maybe we were too over optimistic when he signed thinking we may have a fresh new Kevin Sinfield style player fresh out the box. Never know bit more coaching from DP and the staff you never know how he might progress from a personal point of view cant see him at 13 though in a specialist role.

I hope he takes the 13 shirt next season, stronger for a season at York.

I think we have to consider next year now. I reckon that Stu will retire and Jesse will not be with us. We also need a bustling heavy weight prop. I reckon Jesse goes and Senior comes in. Whatever- but sadly I feel Jesse with his talent will be elsewhere by next season.

For any club Reading this jesse, is rubbish, he can't tackle, catch, run or any basic skill, and he's staying at fev because we don't want him playing poorly for any other club
