. I'd be happy with that but doubt Evalds will be going anywhere until the end of next season at the latest.
Salford are losing money hand over fist. They can’t afford to turn down decent offers for players.
Wouldn't be surprised to see Koukash put something back in. Plus they will want to try and build from the back of the season they have had. Can't see anymore been allowed to go imminently.

Wouldn't be surprised if the fee was used to balance the books. Attendances have been shocking this year and I'm not convinced the club's been well run to manage this income reduction.
Correct ^^ that would be my thought as well. Let’s face facts if half back replacements were readily available Leeds wouldn’t be paying good money for a 31 year old that’s had two serious injuries in the past two years.
It’s a gamble for Leeds and would be a bigger gamble for us in how long it takes to find a replacement. My guess we will follow recent history and sit on the cash until the right player becomes available
Wells as been in the job long enough now not to have everyone in place for next season before pre season training anyone brought in after that should be looked on as a bonus
We tried winging it with a fullback short and a centre short for the last two seasons to try winging it with a starting half back short given that we let Roberts go Aston to a lesser extent and it being obvious Ellis is not good enough would be taking the pee out of the support or not being up to doing the job

There are always a few imponderables, moors doing his hip war one, the eden saga another. They are wait and see because they are in contract. We certainly learnt it lesson with Zak, you can't jump the gun.

Did anyone notice that at the final whistle last night how pleased Luke Gale was as he shook Darryl Powell’s hand? Or was that just a red herring?

When you saw the dressing room after the game Gale was there with a big smile on his face and singing as loud and enthusiastic as anyone else. Maybe the rumours are just that and he he is happy where he is.

I guess we'll know by the start of November when pre season starts where he's going to be. He'll be down for a full pre season whether he be cas or wherever.

Given you have a 0% success rate SITS, I’ll take that to mean the complete opposite. However, I would love it if you were right about Sezer being Gale’s replacement.

Interesting article in the Hull Daily Mail today - they claim we've paid a fee for Richardson, and that Gale's on his way...

https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/sport/r ... rd-3339723
Richardson heading to Cas
There will be plenty of movement in Super League in the coming weeks and one player moving on is St Helens half-back Danny Richardson.

The talented youngster has found game time hard to come by this year and we understand Castleford Tigers have paid a significant fee to take him to West Yorkshire.

The Tigers were on the lookout for a half-back with Luke Gale heading back to Leeds Rhinos and have secured his replacement in Richardson.

The 23-year-old will partner Jake Trueman in the halves in an exciting partnership.

No thanks. We don’t need another winger.
