When’s wardle contract run out with us.
If we arnt keeping Rankin and wardle as to come back to us, then give hudds the opportunity to buy him off us.
I’m sure I’ve seen somewhere this swap deal is to last another year.

I was under the impression that they were both contracted you the end of 2020. I might have felt differently about rankin if he'd played well and not got injured, I suppose he's still got time. At the moment Cory has the spot.

Problem with rankin he’s a quota spot.
When everyone is fit we have gale/trueman/Ellis/Aston and Rankin. Do we need all them half backs.

That goes against him for me. At the moment I wouldn't keep him. The quota spots can be used better, if the quota players aren't in the first 17, then it's a waste.

If Gale plays, Rankin doesn't. The thing with Rankin is that much of his organisational work goes unnoticed. Aston organises very little and goes missing for large parts of the game, so Trueman has too much responsibility. Rankin is one you notice the loss when he's not playing. Our run of losses came when he was missing, but I know there were others.

Got to say we seem to play better and find more space when rankin came on v Leeds.

Rankin certainly livened things up on Thursday.
So we are in a good place to say in the halves.
Has utility value as well.
Wardle for whatever the reason seems to be playing far better than he ever did in a Cas shirt.
So the real issue is in relation to a quota spot should we ever have a fully fit squad.
