Personally I think we need a really good hooker, one thing that stood out when we had AOB was how much more time our half backs had. That said Brandon Moore is looking better each week and if need be I would get him doing the full 80 unless we could get another hooker who can fire an accurate pass out to share duties with him.

Mitch has been our most consistent and always did an effective job very well. Will be missed, but hopefully we can replace him. Will be interesting how we recruit back wise. I'd like to see Woodburn-Hall have a great off season and come back as our number one centre, putting pressure on Tyrer and hopefully Butler/Heaton step up too! Half back is interesting. We had Gareth Moore, in his own right a very decent half back in this division, however that didn't last overly long and we went back to Murrell/Jonno. What is the long term solution, who know's, let RM decide.

We need a half back who can take control of the team and guide it round the pitch, particularly important in tight games. We also need our hooker(s) to distribute the ball at speed - if you watch carefully, Ben Kaye in particular needs to draw his arms back before distributing - a vital fraction of a second slow compared to the likes of AOB who can fire it out straight from the ptb (maybe some coaching would sort this out). We also need some "grunt" up front - maybe not superstars, but a couple of bulldozers on board who a) don't drop the ball, and b) maybe can offload now and again as well as running hard and straight! Lastly, we need some genuine pace in the backs - centres or wingers it doesn't matter, but with the speed we have available at the moment, they need to be a real "classy" set of players to be great, even at our level?

I don't ask for much!!

Agree with every word of that. But can we also add a fullback to that list, as good as the Sharp has been he doesn't offer any creativity when he chimes into the line

Is this from the same source that said we'd signed Chisholm a while back?

Maybe renew our alleged interest in Josh Guzdek and move Sharp to wing if Rob retires?
