That would leave us with Eden, Lo, Minikin and Clare.
In the long term, Minikin is going to end up in the centre I think, so I imagine he’ll play a few games there this year when Webster is rested.


Garry Lo is much better than Minikin.

Sorry if I've missed any but there hasn't been a great deal of movement from Salford? I would be thought they'd try to bring in a replacement for Dobson before start of pre season

We have signed several players, and one of them is Jack Littlejohn from the West Tigers who is the replacement for Michael Dobson.

And just to keep you up to speed.
Luke Burgess
Gavin Bennion
Levy Nzoungou
Derrell Olpherts
Ben Nakubuwai

plus the club are counting Manu and Tyrone Mccarthy as they came slightly earlier. Not to mention Mossop who will be like a new signing if he ever plays.

How do you think all the new signings have come along a few of us having a whip round in the pub ? Koukash is pulling the strings don't worry about us fella.

You never quite know with recruitment. Superstars sometimes turn out out to be useless, and players previously thought to be useless sometimes become superstars. However, its not a very exciting bunch of signings for Salford. A few guys from the lower leagues and a couple of overseas signings that only the most avid fans of the NRL will have ever heard of. Tbh the only one I know reasonably well is Burgess and he is bang average.

Agree with all your points above.

I watch a fair bit of NRL and can't remember Littlejohn, although I must have seen him play at some time at Wests. The Fijian Nakubuwa, I only know from watching him play at this WC, no surprise though I'd never heard of him before that since he's only played 2 NRL games and is 21. From what I saw of him he could do a decent job for Salford though. Also I know he came towards the back end of last years but McCarthy a solid SL quality forward.

Looking at who they've brought in, apart from Burgess, they've gone for a quite a number of young inexperienced signings, which is interesting. Also while MK was in charge they'd bring in some quite well-known talent, seems a little different this season coming. Surely for Salford though it's all about building, or at least maintaining on what they did last year.

Its not a terrible squad they have assembled. But very little jumps out at you. Theres no position where you look and say they are really strong in that area. Its all just pretty uninspiring. If a few of these unknown quantities fit in well and have good seasons and Lui stays fit and in form then they might do ok, but I expect to be seeing them in the qualifiers, and they could struggle in them if they dont go into them with a healthy squad. Interested to hear from a couple of Salford fans. Am I being a bit harsh?
