To compete, we need to convert chances into tries and get the centres passing to the wingers. Secondly we need a couple of players supporting the ball carrier to keep the opposition guessing, and not making it easy for them to defend against us. Hopefully if we score tries and keep in the game, it will improve our eagerness to defend and compete, then we may actually win ( or possible bonus points).

Agree mate, think with Prycey back, a full pre season behind him, we can get him back to his best, still a class act on his day.

Too early for this yet ... apart from the fact that we've yet to see Aston, Windley, Ansell in action, we also have to see what comes to us on dual reg. Anyway I suspect that Windley, if he can cut it, is being earmarked for sharing hooking duties with Haigh.

What I will say is that we look to have plenty of competition for places in shirts 1-5, and 11-13. As others have noted, a scrum-half / generic half back, and front rowers, are needed to complete a balanced squad.

Blackbeard you may well be right about it been a bit too soon but i think they will be the type of players the Rhinos will be looking to loan out.Also i believe thier both off contract and the end of next season and if the Rhinos did not retain them it would put the Hawks in the box seat to sign them on a permanent deals.Local lads playing for thier local clubs is what we both would like to see.

I agree Billy,to many a good player are gunna be released by the super league clubs,because of the lower league structure,i feel a few will either pack it in or go back to amateur and like you say Championship clubs..........

Ollie Olds would be a decent signing for you guys (when recovered from his knee surgery).

He's a crafty little scrum half who's just been released from Leeds. He was class in their 9s team and looked good in the short time he was at York.

I believe he's a goal kicker too.

Anything to report on which Leeds players we'll be getting Blackpool or is that going to be the major announcement on launch night?
