Another 30 something out for an easy ride at the basement end of the championship 

Or a 23 year old with numerous SL appearances under his belt?

Still hoping that a DR will drag you out of the bottom two PM?

Which of our centres of the past ten years fit your criterion then GoR?

And that's my point - there seems to be this misconception among past Rams coaches, that back rowers and centres are interchangeable. Maybe I'm just old fashioned.

You just concentrate on your no-signings ?

To be fair, I managed a grimace when they announced the signing of Annakin - course it might have just been wind.

And I’ve just read about Fleming and I’ve managed a smirk. :kolobok_good:

I see you’ve signed Shaun Lunt?

At least he isn't "Another 30 something out for an easy ride at the basement end of the Championship". Some glory years yet to come, I'm sure.

Good signing for a team like Batley

Recruitment for this season looked a little patchy to say the least... 

This might just rescue them from the abyss.. 

I'd rather them sign Lunt than Sammut 

We'll still finish above them ?

If that team is not capable of coming above Batley... We need to give up

If he does NOT return to us on DR, I will be pleased for him, as it will mean he has successfully moved back into the top flight of the game.

Matty Fleming looks like he could be a very useful player. Decent strike rate at every level.

If Fleming is going to be selected, who will be the unlucky player left out?

But if he does, another SL quality player in the mix.

Walton to Bench to cover back row/centres - simples.

Walton is still receiving treatment on his knee so I wouldn't expect him to go straight into the team. When he does get fit I expect that Ryder will be under the greates pressure. It will be good to have competition for places.
