Good coach but he has a much bigger pool to pick from in the oldham M62 catchment area.
Thats always been an issue with costs and player recruitment. We have the A595 corridor
Its finding a blend of cumbrians (as in living in cumbria) plus I would assume 4/5 travelling lads from lancashire... plus whatever is worth promoting from the 19s alongside Ford.
With Haven going up most likely I would see if the more south lakelend contingent of kelly,wilkinson and dowsett were interested
Plus if you put feelers out for Singleton, Marwood and Bolton from Workington.. would also say Walsh but I think Ford fills that gap.
That could replace some of the inevitable exedous and also cut costs on paying travelljng fees/petrol monies or higher salaries?
They have all shown they can handle league 1.
1. Bolton -Askam/Town
2. Ford -Walney
3. Singleton -Barrow Island/Town
5. S Toal - Ulv
6. Spend salary cap - would love to see ritson play there.
7. Marwood... Barrow Island/Town although more a 9 i know
8. Spend Salary Cap
9.Dowsett - Askam/Haven
10.E Kelly- Millom/Haven
11. D Toal - Ulv
12. J Smith
13. Wilkinson Ulv/Haven
15. T Hopkins -Askam/BARLA
16.C.Tyrell (if interested) Millom/St H trial
18. Saunders - ulv/BARLA
Then Ideally Joe Bullock for half the season post knee op would be ideal
Plus blood another 3/4 under 19s and spend the rest of the salary cap on the two biggest front rowers you could afford.
Think Ritson Riley Stack amd Walker will all be back up the coast
Susino is off, but couldnt expect less.
Starts looking promising than some of the poorer signings (in my opinion from what ive seen)
Could all go for me
Dallimore ... brilliant one week. Awful the next... no idea what I would do as coach or chairman for him
