I can't think of any shaven player that is worth a daft offer to replace any of our 1st choice players, maybe Sarah Jessica at a push.

i would take either jjp or mcavoy and thats it. the rest are worse than what we have. i think haven will miss sice this year, as newton is average at best.

Excellent news on big Kris, he was superb last season. Another season for the Cow head - he's 20% horse you know!!!

As for the theoretical signing of Haven players, I think I'd take McAvoy over SJP. I know SJP has woken up a bit since he first signed for Haven but from what limited games I've seen him play live and on TV he seems to have lazy patches (or concentration lapses) in the games. McAvoy is much better all around IMO and he's a local lad!!!

Apart from him I'm not sure who else I'd covet, maybe Houghton would do a job for us. I suppose it's subjective as Haven fans may see their squad as superior to ours as we only see each others players a few times a season.

Scott McAvoy would be the only player I would take from jam.

Is Mcavoy under contract there ? Is it being suggested that we're after him ?

It's been a few seasons on the trot one or 2 players from up the road where coming to us for "crazy money" only too sign for haven again on better terms!! So I won't beleive it too it's on the back of the paper!! Plus crazy money is something we won't be offering as was stated in the forum!! So stop being "crazy"

We won't be offering silly money even if it was sam Tomkins :laugh: ,on a more sensible note the one player for me would be McAvoy :mosking::mail:  ,i think he would be a big hit with dan rooney and they would in my opinion be the two best centres in the championship,but that's my choice,on the forwards Houghton would be in for me,he didn't do much against our lads but I would take him and maybe playing with some of the other widnes lads might be a big start for him. :asciidity:

Great news to have kris back on board. Donald there is NO such a thing as "crazy" money in cumbrian RL. maybe we have made a better offer. There are certain haven fans who bring silly money story's up when a player is leaving to hide their disappointment.

yeh your right when I say crazy money you've probably made him a better offer or maybe a 2 or 3 year deal which is better than a one year deal

Go for it ! We need a centre and boy he's a centre ! Cut periphery players like Calders who eat up a few quid and have a go .DR is there if we need it . Quality is what you need next year , a few marquee players can haul you around ,and we need to up our edge threat and try scoring hugely to put games to bed .

  It is my understanding that Town did not make Scott any offer whatsoever.I believe they did show initial interest,however It's my opinion that Scott indicated he was happy to stay at Whitehaven and that Town did not even discuss personal terms.Hope this clarifys the position on Scott McAvoy and finishes the never ending rumours that are flying around about players coming and going,The club will let us know about players coming in so I would just wait for them to reveal who is next :mail: .

Dave i would sign Tom Gilmore for a season loan, or on a month to month rolling contract.The lad is better and more talented than Danny Craven in my opinion.

Yeah I think we would be better off trying to get a couple of the widnes lads on season long loans. Maybe this Gilmore and Hulme, it would prob benefit the player to know what he is doing for the season and give him the full season to develop into a SL squad player. We can still use the DR for the others that we use as and when we need them but we were left short a couple of times again last season and this year is more important if this restructure is gonna happen.

Widnes can benefit from it also but bringing in young lads who have barla international experience training with then with that chance of super league rugby but also getting there apprenticeship from Workington if they are good enough!! Although the 17 we put out next season barring injuries is going to be a good one if the new signings come off
