He sees us a team which Powell brings the best out of them which is great going through the season and will always see us well placed in the table but we will always fall short when it comes to the play off knock out games,I know a lot of you will brush off his comment because of his background but the more I've thought about the more I tend to agree.

We are 1/2 quality players away from been where we want to be and IMO I'd be happy if we could bring in a centre and a winger one with genuine pace the other with size and power. Do I think we will get either,time will tell. Krisnan inu is a player I'd be keeping tabs on a bit of a nomad but a player that as natural ability who is exactly the player DP could bring the best out of,could be the perfect fit for both player and club.
Krisnan inu would be a really good fit for us.hes big hes strong and still only 28/29 i belive deffinatly worth having a look at since widnes have gone down hel be a free agent

If we spend up to the cap, and we are making a profit, and the stadium looks on target, is it time to consider a marquee signing who could have maybe broken up the game for us ?

A middle man or a centre?

I actually think DP sees foster as a more than capable centre and I agree with him.id have no qualms foster taking Webster’s place next season

I see no problem there and trust in Daryl’s judgement all day long.
The only thing is I would hope he is honest enough with himself in deciding whether foster could do a job or whether a Tupou/ Percival like Quality performer is what we must aim to.

Yeah we need a man like gallen was few years ago been there done it seen it all steady ship in big games
Don't know what peacocks on about unless it's were new kids on the block and you have to loose a few big games before you can win c.c and grand finals

You still need £120,000 spare on the cap for a marquee signing. They aren’t totally exempt.

He’s contracted until the end of 2020. Anything could happen between now and then and for me next season is pivotal in terms of recruitment. That’s the priority for me.

Like been said all players contracted and we near salary cap.we need a minimum good centre signed probally 2.we are extremely weak in that position. For me try to do a deal with some of our underperforming players if it's the only option but bad management once again from the club if they don't or can't sign a centre.

I’d look at where we are with recruitment next season and what we do with those off contract and replacing them before renewals.

We can offer Trueman a new deal starting 2021 on increased pay then.

I dare say we’d relatively easily achieve it, Webster alone must be on more than half of that amount?

That salary will already be accounted for with the increased contracts handed out this season for the likes of Milner. You can’t focus on just those going out but also who has had their contract renewed this season that will start in November.

We must have some space for a quality back, why would we leave a quota space free and let JY go ?!?
