See Paul Crook has signed for Oldham. I think he could still have done a good job for us.

Hope we sign a goal kicker. Sorry to see some of the players leaving such as Gav Bennion and Jordan Case. Are Gaz Middlehurst, Jo Taira, Jono Smith and Matty Hadden still under contract?

Gav Bennion cant turn down a SLteam.Jordan hanging up his boots.Dont know about the other 4 .

Toby and Luke Adamson signed from Dewsbury.Dont think we have had brothers playing before.Might be very good.

The only brothers I remember are the Hiltons, Anthony and Chris from Mayfield in the 90's I think.

Two great lads and players

So, for now, is this how we could look next season?

FB  D. Kay        W. R. Massam   C. ?    C. L.Galbraith   W. ?            HB. ?      SH. D. Yates

P.  B.Turner  H. R. Maneely    P. ?     SR. D.Allen      SR. T. Adamson     LF. L.Adamson

* not confirmed; info. via NW Crusaders forum

A long way off a full squad and as yet a number (lessening by day) of this season's squad still to put pen to paper. The annual merry-go-round (£££) is spinning! 

And from a recent TRLF Fans article:

Quote

(Dave Allen) the former Wigan, Widnes, Whitehaven and Ireland international becomes the first new addition to Alan Kilshaw’s 2018 squad, joining nine retained players.

It's glass half-cracked guy, everyone!

 

The squad will be what it will be.

Everyone has more budget than us, so we'll cut our cloth accordingly and go again.

We might be some way off a 23 man squad, but we'll get there.

Not panicking.

15 so far - no doubt within budget - looks good.

I've been told by a mate who's a Crusaders fan that Hurst is a bit of a penalty machine and they even bet amongst themselves as to how many he'll give away in each game. 🙄 

9 Tries in 17 games..... and bags of untapped potential, we'll take the risk.

But thanks for the heads up anyway.

more to the point, whoever plays on the wing outside him might as well take a book onto the field with them.....unless you can train him in the skill known as "passing the ball" ;)

In that case he should fit right in.

Quite a speedy backline, it seems, with Lepori cover for full back too.
