New signing and 2 re signings

33 posts in this topic

Don't think that is completely fair, BC has always been highly rated by Town fans, and one

of his strengths is the ability to play in a number of positions, so don't see what the big

problem was with getting SB in who was actually signed rather on DR. The reaction

he got in the recent wc games playing in a different position at Derwent Park certainly

showed the high regard Town fans have for BC.

Good news for Town looks to be the fact that both Raiders and Haven look to be

gaining fullbacks, so hopefully BC will re-sign, unless super league comes

a calling, would be a big loss if he didn't sign.

It looks like he might be waiting till after the World Cup to see if he can get super league before re signing but I think he definitely won't sign for us as we've got 2 fullbacks and 3/4 wingers

My comments in reply to Keith, were supposed to be light hearted, I was side tracked from talking about trying to strengthen links between the raiders and the amateur leagues, but the links with the other Cumbrian teams is also important, there has always been a good

movement of players up and down the coast, and long may it continue.

Could not agree with you more,but this is nothing new,its been going on since I was an amateur,in the 60s/70s,seems the senior club does not want to pay the worth of local talent,hoping they will come for a pitence,does not work like that any more.

Must agree Raiders need to look at amateur clubs a bit more closely and not assume they are theirs for the taking. Used to be local pride in playing at Craven Park, last few years has seen that dissapear thanks to certain board members and coaches.

I'm happy to build bridges with all local amateur sides. We've had a meeting re: have the juniors playing after a raiders home game.

Hopefully this will become a permanent feature in 2014.

That would be a brilliant start, lets face it we have a coaching staff with very strong links to the amateur game, which must be an advantage in the future,

Before the appointment of Murray there was a lot of talk of building a side from the local amateurs who can play. On paper signings are looking good and I hope we will see some attractive rugby on the pitch. Hoping some of the individuals who have signrd are allowed to play there own game and lets see some flair on the pitch. Still think we a centre or two who can break defences. Hoping Raiders staff and board have a good look at the Cumbria side facing Lancashire on the 17th.
