69 posts in this topic

It's a topic that concerns us only this not them down the road, who would you like to see us sign of the 4 players we apparently need? I will start us off

Dixon from WBH

Brocklebank from Egremont

Emmitt from Salford

And a partridge in a pair tree.

well jake emmitt is one we wont be signing unfortunately. Brocklebank is a must for me and youve got to feel if hes ever going to step up a level then now is the time to do it.

Partridge is way to expensive . We're on a tight budget , we've no money for extravagances. .

Salford just announced their squad numbers and Adam Walne got 20 Jordan got 21 and emmit hasn't been given one so I imagine he is a free agent

Who were they linked to in DR ? We need to be keeping good informal relations with them . They'll have plenty of players . The Swinton situation is the unknown I guess

Again I said Salford were the team to be on duel reg with middle of last year ...

Looking at signings we need some fresh faces - the walne brothers will be around salfords 17 - widnes look to have the same as last year - maybe big Lawton will play now hocks gone -

Wingers there's a lad playing local ru who will be on the radar I wouldn't pay big money for Flynn -

Could do with a centre - halves are fine with forber / Callum / Lupton

Props probably need 2 to be honest

Hookers - lucock + matty

Back row probably a couple ...

This added to a utility back 3 player ...

That's 6/7 players in my book

20 and 21 squad numbers are half n half really between out in the cold and regular match day members ... The Walne's are obviously involved in Salfords plans , as with all their money and signings if they weren't wanted they'd have been discarded . I think we've more chance of getting Jordan if we tried , as Adam seems a bit more advanced , but we don't know which other championship clubs are sniffing about .

Koukash seems to be wanting to develop ties with the RL cubs around the Greater Manchester area so we would stand no chance of going DR with them.

Lupton to loose? So our play maker take him out of the equation? I don't think that will happen, olstrum is our loose with big duerden sure to fill in there too

That doesn't have to happen , but a third top championship quality half would give you that option , and it's good to have the players to play different styles without diluting quality . And if we had that , Lupton at 13 would give three ball players and more dimensions and problems for the opposition in shutting us down . I think Peter plays his game regardless of number really . I'm just saying more quality gives options , not that this or that should happen . I agree Karl's 20 runs and 50 tackles is plan A at the back of the scrum .

Any game peter has played at 13, hes basically been used as another 2nd rower, battering the ball in, so its a complete waste of his talents. I wouldnt use him there ever to be honest, plenty of options at 13. Olstrum, duersden, rooney, stack, shacks, morris etc

Well if that's the case that's poor coaching and tactics because he pretty much is and has been a 13 and has the perfect game to play there ! He embodies the traditional ball playing 13 , slowly being squeezed out by the workhorse or third prop type in the game generally it seems . I think we do need more flexibility and dimensions in our game next season . The ability to adapt and shift positionally without being weakened through good squad strength , hopefully giving more attacking options if needed .

I didn't say to take him out of the equation if we can sign another quality half we could put him there as another ball player, all I said was maybe put him there

We tried that with coyle didn't work - 3 maximum half backs I'm afraid - too many options - too many changes
