it amazes me how the so called top teams keep under the salary cap that is if there is one
They have all lost players though, which is what people forget.

Wigan have lost Williams
Hull have had half their pack retire or leave.

I agree to a certain extent but most people thought matautia was a good signing most people thought Blair was a good signing most people agreed it was correct to extend the contracts of the likes of Eden Mcshane Milner Massey and co after 2017 Wardle was playing well in the Nrl
I don't think Wells is the right man in place I've said that before but it's only fair to point out it's easy to be wise after the event
I agree to some extent. My issue has been retention rather than recruitment, and the length of contracts that we gave average or injury-prone players.
James Clare had his contract extended after only playing nine game. Why did we give him a two-year deal to the end of 2021 after only nine games?
Ollie Holmes got a contract extension in early 2018 that takes him to the end of 2021. He had only played 14 games in 2016 and 11 games in 2017. It was madness to give a player who had played so few games such a long contract, and no surprise he’s barely played this year.
Alex Foster - where do we start? He signed a two year contract in 2017 that took him to the end of 2019. For some bizarre reason, we then gave him another contract in 2018, even though he still had over eighteen months on his current deal! Why? We’ve given him a deal to the end of 2021 after such a short time at the club, and when he was under contract anyway! Since he signed his most recent contract, he’s played 6 games. If we hadn’t rushed in with an unnecessary contract, we would have had much more flexibility.
Michael Shenton - giving any player a three year contract that doesn’t end until he is 36 is just ridiculous. He deserved to continue his career at the time he signed his contract, but we should have learnt from Andy Lynch how quickly excellent players can deteriorate with age. Three years was just stupid.
Unfortunately, retentions and recruitment go hand-in-hand. In a salary-capped sport, retaining a player has a direct impact on a club’s ability to recruit new ones. We’ve tied our hands by giving long contracts to players who quite frankly hadn’t earned them.
Fully support this.

I find it in-cred-ible that such incompetence can be created within an organisation that worked so hard to gain momentum in the first place.

MY GOD, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE RESTED ON OUR LAURELS FOLLOWING GOOD SEASONS ONLY TO SINK THROUGH INACTIVITY THE YEARS FOLLOWING? It’s criminal almost.

I’m very disappointed and disillusioned with the club, Daryl included for the first time ever. I love the bloke sincerely but his choices / recruitment and decisions the past 2 years has been found wanting in areas.

I thought we had a cute forward thinking BOD now too; perhaps the one(s) with most clout are the absolutely worst ones to yield it....?

I’m not hopeful for next season. Sorry. I see a battle in the bottom 5 or 6 with us squarely in it.
Just to note, sticks had been out best winger and worthy of his contract. He's fantastic if off field aswell.

Got a tweet alert from Cas yesterday saying Minikin was joining Hull KR for 2020 but when I clicked on it, it had been deleted...

I think someone jumped the gun in releasing the club he was joining. Obviously it's up to KR when they announce a new player out of contract not for his previous club to release.

taking Gale away all the other players released would have been on low contracts we are muted to have brought five players in there may not be much money in the pot to improve our squad any more

Why? so he can be 4th choice with us. I imagine likes of York/Fev will make a play for him.

Fevs chances all depend on how many Leeds players they can get again
