My role with the club at the moment is maintaining the 'back end' of the website and writing the odd match report for Steven to upload, so I can't comment on the media output and communication. I'm not involved at all with that.
So I'm unsure about the ins and outs regarding loans and dual-reg... but I don't blame Lee at all for bringing them in.
He came into the club very late after Neil eventually informed the club he couldn't continue. We were very far behind with recruitment for that reason, coupled with the fact that three of our best players from the past couple of years had left before he arrived.
Most of the lads available to recruit who were within our budget weren't Championship standard.
We've uncovered a gem in Tom Garratt (from Siddal), and Cameron Leeming and Andy Garbriel (both from Keighley in administration) have shown glimpses.
I think Simon Brown and Jordan Andrade have proven useful acquisitions too, but we're overall very thin on Championship quality.
His plans haven't been helped by the RFL's refusal to sanction a request to organise Reserves-grade matches outside of the formal league structure. That's made it very tough for us to develop the younger players we've brought in who, while not Championship quality, could be in years to come.
Lee sees his players train three times a week and I trust him to know whether or not he has a 17 capable of competing in the Championship.
It's clear that he doesn't think he has that at the moment, so if there are opportunities for him to strengthen externally then I expect him to do that. I don't expect him to name a squad that he doesn't think is good enough to win matches.
Despite the positive start to the year, the objective this year has to be to survive. Lee deserves the chance to build a squad over a few years.
