Very close to agreement with Saford for this Kid.

Won't feature in Challenge Cup.

Decent player and goal kicker if true.

You're happy to sign a kid who is viewed as surplus to requirements at Salford. It's a poor signing just like the Hampshire one. Club lack any sort of ambition, and with signings like these, clearly are planning for life in the Championship.

What’s the basis for the rumour?

I cant see us signing him and Hampshire even if Hampshire is now injured.

Desperate desperate poor quality signings.

Do the recruitment right or don’t do it at all. Don’t tie the roster and cap up with dross we’ll carry around with us when we need a real player.

We should be all over a real quality marquee PERSON signing to avoid relegation not clumsy horrible signings like Hampshire and Atkin!! Obviously a half would be first stop.

The amount of talent in Australia & NZ, even in second and equivalent third grades is absolutely scary.

We need to build relationships with Craig Bellamy, Trent Robinson and Wayne Bennett…also look into getting our ears to the floor with buzz rothfield and hooper….to find out about outstanding young guys needing game time or development. They’d be head and shoulders above available talent in the UK right now

Do we have a scouting / contacts network for this? Head of Rugby role?

Hampshire and Atkin are both halves by trade.

Cannot sign anyone from overseas as all quotes spots currently taken by a contracted player.

Apart from that, you’re talking sense

You can see that with Lino at Wakefield looks a real handful he played 30 odd games in the NRL in 5 or 6 years before Wakefield got him
If you've got some good scouts or contacts in Australia you've got a chance of picking up some talent that will shine in SL

It's time to adjust the roster then and free up spaces.
Hepi - go.
Faraimo or fonua - go

But most of all Feki...

Replacing him with a half could mean the difference between relegation or not, whether radders is sacked or not.

We CAN afford to pay him off or equivalent. It's time to be cut throat.

Hepi isn’t a quota player…
Fariamo has a 3 year contract
Feki has a contract to the end of the year
Paying them off with still count on this years cap (I believe)
How do you know we can afford to pay anyone off?
Aren’t we at the cap limit?

Where has the Chris Atkin rumour come from? We were getting a lot of red herrings a few months back from Covid Tiger. Hope it’s got some basis this time.

Feki better not go had £10 on him to be top try scorer this season.

90% of rumours here are rubbish.

This rumour has no legs at all in my opinion.

Look at the original poster?

According to a PM I received, he’s going by the end of this month….

Right up there with my mate Dennis who has had £5 on Fariamo, I recon Feki could still beat him!

Given Fariamo has scored one, I doubt it
