Wakey lack grunt up front.  If they fix that for next season then they should have a decent 2015.

 

As for Saints, I had no idea what to expect from this match as I had no idea who Brown would field in the respective injury hit positions.  We really got it together in the second half and if we can keep our remaining players fit - although of course Wheeler is now injured - then we may have a chance, although I do appreciate that Wakey lack grunt up front and so others will present a sterner test for us.

 

I was proud of the effort the lads put in tonight though given the fundamental changes that have had to take place virtually overnight.

With Wakefield releasing players out of contract and allowing others to have end of season surgery the team looked even more depleted than usual.  

Taking nothing away from Saints but it was a good time to play Wakefield.

I'm sure we appreciate your selflessness! :D

Sainslass,

You hit the nail on the head, we lack grunt up front.

Last night from the players who'll still be here next year we had Ryan, Scruton, Dan Smith and Godinet unavailable through injury. The first three are all big blokes who bring some of the grunt we were missing, we've also allowed Richard Moore to leave early.

James Webster has spoken of our inability to lay a platform for our half backs and strike players and his thoughts are reflected in our recruitment.

Next season we've also signed Mickael Simon from Catalan Dragons who's a big, damaging robust prop forward. There are rumours that we've also signed a number of other players including Julian Bousquet, Micky Paeya and Fui Fui Moi Moi.

We'll be significantly bigger up front next year and with Sammut, Godinet, Jowitt, Collis, Hall and possibly Tim Smith in the backs we will be far more competitive.

If Moi Moi signs for Wakefield I'll jump into the Headingley south stand wearing a Tomkins Wigan shirt.

Is Max Jowitt, who made his debut for Wakefield, the first "Super League baby"? His date of birth is listed as 06/05/1997.

Ahh right, cheers.

 

Any advance on Crowther?

 

I wondered about Leeds' Elliot Minchella but he was born Jan 1996 according to his Rhinos profile.
