Just listened to radfords interview with JD, reading between the lines it sounds like trueman is off.
Also sounds like we are making 5/6 new signings.
Though he did change his tune after he said that. Could be less could be more.
Sounds like Hampshire is ready to go, plus Greg Eden.

good luck Jake lad wherever you end up playing
I agree mate it's like people who were constantly criticising him were just ignoring the problems he's had with his back
Well apparently he’s over his back problems now. So why is he still hit and miss still.
Maybe he lost a bit of confidence I don't know what worries me if he goes who we get to replace him we have a recent history of not replacing good players with players of equal or better ability when they leave

Halves wise there is very little of substance available in this country that is off contact. Looking at the list this is your lot and some of these are overseas players, some pretty long in the tooth and some could be classed more as utility players...

Tyrone May, Jack Cogger, Josh Reynolds, Luke Gale, Blake Austin, Corey Norman, Jacob Miller, Stefan Ratchford, Riley Dean, Gareth Widdop, Thomas Leuluai.

That i think is your lot, other than Danny Richardson & Ryan Hampshire from us. Pretty slim pickings and some i would expect to be unavailable for various reasons.

As for the NRL a lot won't qualify for a permit due to lack of games etc, some won't relocate due to family reason (Sam Williams stated this when Toulouse & Wakey wanted him for example) and some are nailed on re-signings or will sign for other clubs in Australia. Anyway the list is....

Matt Frawley, Ben Hampton, Lachlan Lam, Matt Moylan, Hayze Perham, Jaeman Salmon, Simi Sasagi, Billy Walters, Phoenix Crossland, Kurt Falls, Chanel Harris-Tavita, Cooper Johns, Albert Kelly, Jock Madden, Anthony Milford, Sean O'Sullivan, Brandon Wakeham, Sam Williams.

It's not a good time to be looking for two halfbacks.....

The issue is that people have been making excuses for him for a long time.
Gale is too dominant (even though they didn't play together very often).
He's got no stable half-back partner.
He's young.
He's playing behind a poor forward pack.
He's got a bad back.
He's lacking confidence.
You can only make excuses for so long. I'm starting to think he just isn't that good. Maybe he's one of those players who looks world-class in training, but just never quite looks the same when it comes to the crunch on game-day?

Whomever said it's not time to be recruiting halves is so correct.

I can see Milford or Kelly coming. Or both

Unlikely, but to be honest if reasonable criticism of his performances affects him then perhaps professional sport isn’t the job for him.
Similarly, if he doesn’t want criticism then he’s signing for the wrong club, if rumours are true that he is heading to Hull FC.

If we sign Milford I’ll be ecstatic. His game is made for SL.

Trust me he won't give a hoot what people on a forum say about him he's been on a overseas tour he's just been picked for England Knights he's had well respected people in the game singing his praises Powelly constantly said he was a special talent why would he care what a handful of people on Casforum think of him ?

Heard Blair say same to someone at game today.
Also said he’s off back home as he’s not been offered a new contract.

There's nearly £250k in cap just between him and Feki. That's some well needed funds to improve in areas we need.

Players talk, loosely at times. I was with a Wakey player the other day and he was saying how some of the better players aren't paid all that well, but make it up in bonuses.
