Can't find it. It was either him or Steve Gill. I remember seeing somewhere, might have been at one of the supporters club evenings. Just remember talk of bringing 2/3 in. Which sounded right with lynch, chase and monaghan? going. Should have space especially with inbegnion and Larroyer leaving.

We might pick someone up from a relegated team.
I'm hoping Catalans go down - Bousqet would be a nice addition.

I don't want Catalans to go down. That trip to Perpignan was one of the best experiences I've had as a Cas fan.
Catalans definitely add to the status of Superleague as a product IMO

They bring no money through our gate though.
Given the choice between 3,000 Hull KR fans and 3 Catalans fans paying to come to WR, I know what I'd take.

In this week's league express...

Big news on an English forward that has secured his return to Super League for 2018… and he could well be Castleford’s mystery signing.

Maybe but the big money comes in from TV. Wonder what the impact of no home Catalans games on Saturdays will be
I would rather either see the league expanded or lose a poorly supported M 62 sides with no away fans

The French broadcasting rights are agreed directly with Catalans. No money goes to other SL clubs.

Fair enough. We will have to agree to differ.
I am by the way very keen on having both Hull clubs in SL having lived in Hull for 6 years when the two clubs were winning everything and the whole city was bleeding RL
I would rather have an expanded SL or lose Leigh or Salford though than Catalans. Just a personal opinion.
By the way, spent ten years in two spells at Nottingham too. Would have loved the game to have caught on there. But Harvey Haddon was never the place.

You expect them to stay? I'm, 99% sure they won't.

Don't know depends on how much a replacement squad player will cost or who we can get.

If we are only bringing in 2/3 as people keep saying they must be to replace Lynch for one. Burgess or a other ?

Wardle i assume will become Websters replacement maybe ?

Does DP think Douglas and Gill are ready for First team action if so they may both go yes.

Sure one of the "in the know" crew can tell us everything and what out starting 17 will be next year.

I think we have back up in Maher, Gill, Douglas and I'd give egodo a go. I would however like to see a quality prop come in burgess, Walmsley, some one known and high profile.

We have a larger salary cap next year and we'll be in profit. We need to back this year up and we can be top 4 for a few years to come.
