You wouldn't write us off completely but would be very surprised if we got close to winning league or even got to GF for that matter. Would be huge for a club of our stature and without improving I can't see it.
The league is not a strong one tbf and so we should do ok but we looked well short last year when it really counted.
Injuries hampered us fair enough. But still we need to build on the squad.
The squad is another year older so saying we have 15 players from the Saints semi is a bit of a fallacy.
Will Millo, Shenny, dare I say it, even Moors be as effective?
If we go with what we got, winning silverware will be tougher than it was before.
Happy to be proved wrong. At the very least a good quality centre and a decent front rower needed imo.

Analyzing training and game footage. Look at the two players who are there together. Is this the new wing and centre partnership on our right edge?

Sure it’s milner.
Thought he’d still got time off due to the test matches he played in.
Not seen the picture so don’t know.

He'd be in mine too, but with him getting only 10/15 minutes in some games last season, i'd imagine players would be in front him.
