My biggest worry is that it’s felt like our spine other than McShane and Richardson have been made of glass this season . Unless McLelland is coming straight in and is ready to go, loaning Richardson out now feels like a very high risk strategy to me.

In think we've taken precautions with players as it's been all out challenge cup or nothing. I expect a big change now.

He's been injured most of season bad luck for him he would have got a number of games I would have thought with other Leeds half-backs injured for a lot of season

Would be more that happy to McLelland back, always rated this lad and was gutted when we didnt get him back from his return from Scottish kick & clap. Was excellent for Feath in their run to the final against Toronto and I think this kid has all the attributes to be a top SL halfback, 3 x halves to go at in Truman, McLelland and O'Brian looks pretty good to me.

As an aside there is a severe shortage of decent qulity halfbacks in the NRL at the minute, I know Canberra are desperate for another halfback but are struggling to find one, anyone that is any good is commanding huge fees/salaries. With that in mind this could be an astute signing................

Just a thought, and happy to give the lad a chance.

Canberra looked great with Austin, then Sezer, then Williams and got rid of each of them. It would be interesting to know what exactly they are looking for

Think they were pretty happy with Wighton and George Williams but that obviously went south when GW wanted to return to the UK. Austin was told he wasnt wanted I believe, and again I believe this was because he was a great running threat but not so great as a controlling half, he played a lot of off the cuff rugby and this could prove costly in the NRL, shame because he was good to watch and I still think the SL is a good place for him to thrive if he gets his head straight. Moving Wighton into the halves from fullback meant he was surplus to requirements.

Seizer ended up as a back up half, his game management and kicking game was good, but he was a bit of a target for the opposition in defence, believe he was offered another reduced deal by the Raiders but chose a more lucrative deal in the UK where he would be the no1 half.

Currently the Raiders are using Frawley, Sam Williams and Wighton, the first two are perennial reserve graders but probably both are good enough for a SL starting shirt at a push.

Raiders are on the lookout for a new 1st choice half to partner Wighton, but as I say good halves are hard to come by at the minute in the NRL. The ace the Aussies have up their sleeve is the conveyor belt of talent coming from the juniors, and the Raiders may just wait and develop their own, see Penrith now, the Bulldogs also albeit they only started re-building a season or so ago.

With no fear of relegation they have the time to do this.

Apparently he played really well last night.
Maybe if Gale leave, he’ll replace him.
