Todays game

Whilst we dont want to lose any up and coming lads, really this is how a proper partnership should work.

Widnes should have first look at our lads - bit of compensation would be nice too!

This would encourage locals to sign for us if they can see a clear pathway to SL.

Well I thought he looked good and he may want to play Superleague?If is the case I think Widnes should show interest,and if does well some compensation to help your club, and i want it to benefit both clubs. Hopefully you getting our talented youngsters on loan will help your squad too.When you get our youngsters on loan I will be interested in their progress.Tom Gilmore is a big prospect from Widnes.

It was his first game and a friendly with no pressure on him. lets see how he goes throughout the season, I have no doubt he will be a brilliant player for us but dont heap pressure on him after 1 game.

Absolutely , slow down a bit! It does again though illustrate the jewel we have on our doorstep - namely the best amateur standard around.

It has to be the seam we mine for gold. Nice if we can unearth a couple more gems to add to Callum.

Is Callum a 9 or was he just playing there because Mattys out ? What's his natural position , will we see him at 7 come the main business?

Said it a load of times but for me hes a 9. Real intelligent player who knows how to get a team moving forward and when to go it alone

It was me who thought he was good mate.Not the Widnes fans, but i could see his talent after one game.I think i should be the Widnes scout. :D So who is Matty please? ;)

Matty is the ex haven hooker who used to have mark smith in his pocket every time we played you just a shame we never won many against you

I do have faith in our squad and we have some good youngsters who will be going to Workington.Leuluai is the only one do not rate to be honest.Goodluck for the season anyway.

I am still not convinced that these tie ups with the super league clubs really benefit the clubs in our league. For instance i could see them been interested in 4 or 5 of towns players. And we get good academy players to replace them now that does not seem a good deal to me.I am just trying to get a debate going to here what other fans think?.

Do you get different players every week and you end up with all the confusion we had last year with SL match day squads etc , or is it aset few who are registered with you as ours for the season like Swinton have ? It'll be interesting to see how it's all explained and works out . Do you ask or get what your given ? Lot of things to see as people have said . And we start relatively soon so we must get our squad numbers in shortly and where do they fit in there ? Could work smoothly or could be destabilising week to week , suck it n see for all these clubs this year I guess . One things for sure , the SL clubs aren't doing it all out of the goodness of their heart . The whole league outside the top 4 could easy come down ( probably will ) to whose link up prospers most .

Abu,I do not know if you were at the widnes game but i believe we had the offer of ten players from team in the game.I for one would have no problem with any of the lads that were on show, infact gerrard the prop looked like a winner,the lad gilmore was outstanding in the halves an all the back division look very pacy,so if we can choose the 5 from the ten then get them in and that would make town even more stronger than they already are.

Alex Gerrard,Tom Gilmore,and Declan Hulme are decent players, and if i was Workington i take them on dual.They are all decent players mate.

I dont like is the dual reg system where they can ring the club on say on a friday saying there in the widnes team that week because of injury,s to there team.I think we had that with the lad peterson from hull.I dont doubt the players you speak of are more than usefull players but we cannot rely on them week in week out which i think will disrupt the team?????.

The team is always going be disrupted by injuries anyhow , part and parcel of the game, so I do think it suits a smaller squad such as ours, as you should be able to keep a fitter squad for longer as you have a larger pool of players which may give us some flexibility at the back end of the season .

As someone said earlier though its a connection with Superleague which could be a further motivation for our players and the gesture made by Widnes suggests to me they are taking it seriously and want to make it work so on balance I'm all for it.

He may have had Mark Smith in his pocket, but unfortunately he didn't have his haven wages in his pocket :rolleyes:
