Do we know when we’re back for pre season, must be soon as we’re entering November? Still no announcement on Eden yet which is strange.

don't think it will improve our team at all we desperately need another half with rugby craft and can make things happen if we get on top in middle off park. For me none off are contracted half backs offer this, and will cost us again in big games.

Need a Good Half and a big prop.
We are still the smallest team in the league.

You don't think having Trueman back will improve the team ?

i look round the league top class have backs are very thin on the ground if we could find a chuck Heppey Brad Davis or Mike Ford i would say lets go for it, we have two that are above middle ranking , and now we have reunited Trueman and McLelland who did play very well together as a pair in those days McLelland for me being the better player let us wait and see how this turns out

Unless Radford can change Richardson from the player he was last season I'd start Trueman and Mcllend with Obrian on the bench able to come on and change the game

No not at all not with out another half back coming in when did trueman before injury have a good game against one off top teams that can defend . mcelland could not get in fev team when on loan and as never really kicked on from his academy years this happens to players . For me are main target should have being a top half and another big prop instead off six wingers .

Depends which trueman turns up.
The one who can be class on his day.
Or the one who hides away.

It’s all down to radford, let’s see what he Can get out of trueman.
If trueman decides he doesn’t wanna stay at the club after his contract runs out end off 2022, his attitude could be, I’m not bothered.
If radford can sweet talk trueman into staying and get his contract sorted and his future sorted then we might see the best of trueman in years to come. My gut feeling is he’ll be off.

Ok I've said before I think McClelland will be a good signing but like all things time will tell
I take OCLs point about Trueman maybe not staying I would hope he would give it all he's got next season even if he's off at the end of next season
We've a number of players who could sit back and leave at the end of next season I hope Radford won't let this happen and get the best out of everybody

I'm not saying there's not question marks over the half back position for next season a Mitchell Pearce type player would have finished the squad off nicely but there you go

if truey is fit he will fancy his chances of a world cup place and that should be motivation enough for him to play well.

Answered my own question here. What winger do we think will leave? I’m gonna guess at Feki.

He must’ve signed a new deal as his last one ended this year.

Wouldnt mind seeing Olpherts and Feki go tbh. Olpherts isnt good enough imo and Feki hasnt played for 2 years. Like everyone else, I was excited when we signed him but at some point you have to cut your losses and having not played for so long how good will he even be?

I'd have Feki bringing the water on for the players. Actually scratch that he might pull something running onto the pitch :?

If the latest reports from the Y.E.P are to be believed you may just have your wish.
