I would go

Mata’utia
Minikin
Foster(destroyed Leeds when he played there)
Shenton
Eden

Then turner can cover fb so Mata’uia can cover centre and Clare can cover wing and egodo can cover wing centre as can Gill

Well, after 22 pages of forum speculation we do not appear to be any clearer to signing any new players and for me that is a worry.

I know we have the basis of a good squad but if you stand still in any sport you end up going backwards. A prime example of this are Spurs in football. They had a reasonable season last time out but have made no signings and for me, do not appear to be as competitive this season. They are still a reasonably good side but I doubt they'll repeat last season's 'success'.

I look at Saints and I'm very fearful for next season.

They've managed to replace Barba with Coote. They've Wes Naiqama who's an exciting player. Then you look at the progress that Makinson and Thompson have made, 2 massive players for England, as well as Percival who for me, was the best centre in the league last year, no doubt about it. They've also got Walmsley to come back in fit and fresh. They'll be a scary proposition next season and certainly aren't messing around.

Exactly.
Perhaps HT can tell us why she thinks we can’t do similar. Would be interested to read actually.

That to me is fine but if any get injured we're a very weakened side imo


Holy sh*t i'm so glad your not in charge of recruitment ](*,) . That's prob about 7th best in SL next year

Leeds
Wigan
Wire
Wakey
Saints
Huddersfield

All have better.

Hull also have a better back line the. That lists in Faraimo, Tuimivave, Griffin :shock: and Talanoa

That's the back line that hit thumped by lots each week. You need forwards and half backs as well.

I can see lots of people are worried and fearful. Come on let's get some reality here.

We are waiting for the player merry go round to start. Only a few teams have space on the cap or willing to spend. So you have to wait until they spend before getting space on your own cap.

Ultimately we have a right set of forwards and half backs.

ok rumored to have tryd to sign him,even if that was bogus information you have to believe we have salary cap space left every team tries to upgrade for next season a combo of clare-minikin would be one of the weakest in the league in my honest opinion

the forwards were not good enough to win a grand final for the last two years some of them need to step up a lot if we want to win a grand final next year i would have been looking to make a upgrade in the forwards but there seems little chance of that
it depends what you want to settle for... with powell in charge i think we will be in the top five next season
