Saying that, I would of loved to of had Junior Vaivai, he'd of been a perfect fit in the centre for us, KR have done well to tie him down.
If he's first team then surely the position is irrelevant when it comes to overseas spots? I think if we're talking about it being wasted on a back-up player or squad player then it's a fair point.

Nobody minded Carney or Solomona taking a quota spot.

we keep hearing not to expect many signings for the comming season, lossing Jake will leave a big hole Minikin and Foster have been muted that will they be able to fill Jakes big boots, lets hope so,

For me we need a quality centre, failing that a full back and move PM to 3.

FWIW the best LF I ever saw play for Cas was Nikau. By a million miles. But the game has changed, IMO Foster is made for 13 in this day and age, can alternate between centre and prop.

As they say though, opinions are like ring pieces, everyone has one!!!
I probably go back further. I really reated Nikki but he wasn’t as good as either Malcolm or Steve Norton who left Cas to nail down a permanent LF role which he did superbly both for Hull FC and GB
Reilly by far better than Nikau and Norton although all 3 were fantastic players.

Not sure. I lived in Hull during the Norton years and he was awesome
Having said that Malcolm is probably my favourite Cas player (jointly with Chuck) so I’ll have to agree with you!

DP says they're don't be much changing assist from 2/3."looking at our squad, we are not losing any first 17 players. Unlike the other teams, so we must be doing something right.
Apart from Jake Webster???
Jake isn't the player he was.

I would be surprised even on probation, pay and play and a low wage.

We needto stepup a bit if we are to be a force in superleague.How many of our squad are the best in SL in their position?We need another back with genuine pace and a tackle breaking forward,obviously this means spending big.If we don’t we will slip back to mid table and mediocrity.Build on success and do not stagnate.

I personally don’t think we need that much.what I do think we need is just that one player who can create that bit of magic.doesnt have to be in a particular position just someone with the X factor.we had it last year with hardaker.were upto the cap apparently so would love us to exploit the marquee signing.i would let a few of the fringe players go/sell to free up the money plus whatever roberts and webster were on.i don’t know who before you ask but I’m sure there is players out there.

A lot of really successful business people are hopeless at running successful sports clubs
