  1. This is far from ideal. But we if played right they could be ok. For me if I were them I’d be looking to sign escare from Salford to cover fb and use the quota spot to sign a prop. I’d also be looking to take the likes of seguier and Jillian on lone.

    It is a marvellous day for the game. Credit must go to the IRL, of course, but the level of professionalism shown so far by the organisers - 3 years out - suggests that they will give this their very best shot. I would also be interested to see whether we could pull off an Emerging nations tournament around it, perhaps a 9s tournament. Something to give the stalwarts in, say, Serbia, Turkey, Morocco to aim for... I am probably just being greedy now. 

    Serbia could make a push for the main comp with a couple of there heritage guys available

    Is Sam Tompkins serious of a possible place in a French team in 2025 WC? In recent times the Dragons are pulling in higher quality players especially from England - and younger  ones too. The length of stay here growing and who knows if some would relish supporting the Tricolores. An add on - Joe Chan 19yr old (son of Alex) scored a try in the SF Play Offs against Hull KR - is another option I think.

    I can definitely see chan playing for France not sure on Tompkins though. France could have a real decent side for the 2025 World Cup with some of players coming through.

    I like Luckley a lot tbf and if he kicks on again he will definitely be in the 17.

    I think we all want an extra prop but that isn't sounding likely. If Akauola can deliver then we'll be fine but that remains to be seen.

    I’m quite optimistic about akauola, think he will go well for us. Wells looks bigger aswell and I reckon he will have a good year. Overall I know are squad isn’t the biggest and a lot of people have us at the bottom but I’m looking forward to next year, think we could shock a few.

    Sio Watkins* Sarginson Burgess

    Wells* Ackers Vuniyayawa

    Wright Livett


    Atkin Burke Akauola Johnson 

    Asterisked Watkins and Wells as their selection is heavily caveated by their respective injury records. If not, Lafai and Ormondroyd/Luckley will come in. Time will tell but very happy with our recruitment bar reservations over Akauola. 

    I’d definitely have ormondroyd and luckley in over Johnson and Burke, otherwise I’d go with something very similar. Still believe we need another prop hopefully we can get one but we will see. Also be interesting to see we’re lafai fits in.

    I'm really impressed by Florian Valihen, love the way he plays the game. A prop that loves to throw the ball around, pass, offload and play with his head up. 

    I think he only played one or two games in SL last year but should get more game time next season. He was my man of the match 

    Noticed he’s now training with the first team. Maybe we will see him get a game this year.

    I hope they have got Justin Sangaré tied up to a big contract because this guy could be anything he wants to be if he puts his mind to it. So much potential!

    Ye he looks real impressive. I’d like to see them add Hugo Salabio aswell them 2 of the bench could have a real impact.
