You've missed a few out,does that mean you don't want them?

Garreth Moore as agreed a 2 year contract.

Walshaw is contracted next year, along with James Glover.

Michael Knowles is contracted next year.

There a few of them I'd like to keep, we'll see.

Apparently Guzdeks going to Hull KR, that's the rumour anyway and interest shown in Arron Brown from Fev. Would love both to stay. Great news with Moore agreeing a 2 year deal, let's get him to sign that dotted line!!

Would like Sam Day to stay too. The ones I'd release would be Hemingway, Potts, Stringer, Tonks, Fairhurst( not going to get much game time) and on current form Alex Brown

I believe that Stringer is retiring at the end of the season, and that might apply to Tonks as well, sadly.

Posting on here that you want certain players to be released isn't exactly going to get the best out of them for the rest of the season though, is it?

Really haven't seen enough of Potts to judge him. As far as I can see, he had a poor game at the start of the season along with most of the rest of the team, and then was dropped. Like to see him have a few games in the eights before being dumped. Either way/ if we keep Morton on one wing, we need someone with pace on the other.

Why, when have we ever had that in recent history?

Dalton Grant had pace to burn when we signed him.....  but GM played him as a battering ram style prop forward and his pace declined over the time he was with us!!  ... Remember his first season early games ...no one got near him when he was in the clear ... compare it 12 months later when he got regularly run down....  

I agree we need the threat of some real pace in the side .... A fit Potts might have it ... he used to!!!

Dennis Bailey and wasn't Marquis Charles also a winger who played in the same side? Or is my memory playing tricks on me and Charles played in a different position?

Austin lost his street credit for speed when preece gave him a head start and still ran him down on a full length of the field vs batley. 

Bit like a sloth catching me in a foot race ;)

I thought this thread was about the 2018 squad .... not a nostalgia trip into speedy wingers of the past!!  ... incidentally my personal choice of speedy wingers of the past were Greg Ashcroft and Geoff Marsh!!  ....

Perhaps we should start another thread .... I'll leave it to the nostalgic!!

Have we really signed Gaz Moore for 2 seasons??  ... I see it on line and I see The Press are reporting it .... BUT .. has it been confirmed by the Rams??  .....  I really hope so!!

After a bad knee injury and never the same again. Prefer to remember him scoring picking the ball up at Sheffield behind his own line and scorching the grass as he left everybody in his wake and put the ball down behind the posts.

Of course you are right Old Niine, I wasn't intending to hijack the thread, just trying to point out that we appear to have binned a decent (at Batley and Fax anyway) winger after one or two indifferent performances at a time when even Browny, Stringer and just about everybody else were rubbish. He has been either unfit or out of favour since his arrival, so let's give him a chance.

I agree Potts hasn't been really fit since he joined us ..... I say get him fit and then decide!!  but of course  his injury may be chronic and he may never recover the pace he once had!

Hope you can see now why I was asking earlier in the week for Fans to give a bit of Financial Commitment for next season.

If you are happy with the signing, make the Club happy with a bit of Financial support.

Potts seemed a good winger when he played at batley and was always up there with the leading try scores.

He then went on Fax were he picked up a few injures, which has carried during his time with us.

Tbf to him he's not had enough opportunities in a Dews shirt I would start him over Alex Brown in the Rochdale game, hopefully he gets chance to prove himself in these shield matches.

To see if he is worthy of a contract for next season.

I've bought a ticket to the 8's

I've even flogged one to a new supporter.

I'm buying a season ticket next season... I'm doing what I can.

Need more to show the faith I'm showing. 

If we want players like Guzdek to stay the fans as well as the club have to go the extra half yard.

Warchest needs sorting on the crest of this new found excitement. Tap into the positivity around the fan's 

For me amber ribbon have had enough time to get this launched. 

I propose that the warchest is organised by the fan's for the club.

 

Time for action!!
