I thought he developed really well through the season and looks to have plenty of potential. Pleased to see him back on board, he’s only going to get better with more experience. UTT

Not a bad resigning, Maybe a little bit small but never holds back. Jake and O'brian were spot on last year but they will meet a lot bigger props this year, Hence the need for a couple of big props to give the young lads a break. I have heard that club have signed or interested in signing a young half back but that is just a rumour.But to myself there is a lot of hard work ahead for the club and Mr,Thorman but I have faith in them both and look forward to seeing who is our new chairman... 🏉🏉🏉UTT...

He was excellent in the run in towards the end of the season, very good defence too. Another good re-signing.

Good news.

 Carl is a club legend and its good to see him back on board. However I think it should be as a squad player we still need fresh blood in the halves for the championship IMHO.

Make or break I think for blane this year. Crowd favourite, seems to score whenever he gets minutes but for whatever reason has never been given consisgame time. I appreciate hes had two good lads in Dec and matty infront of him, but this will be his 3rd season with us.

Barrow island have posted that Blaine has rejoined them. 

Good luck to Blaine but it’s a real shame we didn’t get to see more of him. It was really difficult with having Dec and Matty last year and no doubt he wants to be playing every week. One thing that stood out for me was every time Chris mentioned him he praised him for his attitude and dedication to training, it can’t have been easy travelling up 3 times a week and more often than not not playing on a Sunday. Good luck Blaine and thanks for your efforts.

Can't disagree, if we go into the season with buffed then we know he won't let us down, but he also won't open many defences up (other than the last few games last season when he turned into Darren Lockyer). We need a top quality half to complement Doran.

It would be a real shame if Blaine has gone IMO . He has a bit of xfactor about him and brings a spark around the ruck which is handy against big fellas and under the new rules . I never really understood why we weren’t using him more

Yes Barry I keep looking on here to see if there's any news of a new Chairman.

It's apparently only Les himself who has stated his intention to stand down from Chairmanship (at end of season awards night)....so am I right to assume Les is still on the board of Directors in a lesser role?

The club is currently drip feeding us news of signings, not a bad idea at all. What I do find somewhat strange is - who now adds the final 'rubber stamp' on these squad additions? 

During my years as a DP vol worker there was in the 'Chair' such as the late great Kevan Gorge, the late great Kenny Wilson, amongst others, who from what I can recall had control of club matters from their important top role....is anyone currently handling affairs in similar fashion?

There's a shareholder meeting I think it's December 8th so nothing will be sorted unto then on new directors or the Chairman post.
