Yes, bit sad really. Hope he does well at Fev

I suppose that makes Jordan Burke our up and coming full back then.

I think Brooke Broughton ( DR York ) may have been released. Not seen any confirmation yet though.

It was announced at the Warrington Wolves End of Season Dinner that Ben Hellewell and Brooke Broughton would be leaving at the end of this season.

Suprised, I thought a lot was expected from him (and Broughton for that matter). Good luck to them both.

Yeah this surprised me too, although don't we only have so much room for paying players outside of the first 25? Maybe Smith wants to move some of the other players into the first team for positions we are more short of, and we just don't have room to pay them all. Good luck to them, anyway, and hopefully they will get another chance at the Super League in a few years time.

Disappointing because he was meant to be the next big thing, and we could do with an up and coming full back to replace Hodgson soon.

I never saw him play, was he any good? I seem to remember we paid a transfer fee for him although this could be wrong.

As long as the youngsters don't play in a SL game, pay is not really an issue.
As soon as they play, their total pay must stay under a salary cap of 75k.

I think we will have 2 slots to fill in the first 25 next year, and I would imagine they would be filled by two of; Dwyer, Currie, Laithwaite.

I think you a right about the signing fee, but I have not seen anything official.

I saw him play a few games this year. He looks the part, good speed, backs up well and scores tries. I don't really know why he left, perhaps a personal choice as he came from Bradford I think ?

Assuming it's those first two, we still have 7 more young players in the first team outside of the 25, even after Broughton and Hellewell have left. Hellewell is currently 4th choice full back at best, so extremely unlikely to get a game given that we want to be bringing more youth forwards to the fore (where does Broughton play?). I would guess that Laithwaite, Ben Evans and some of the other forwards like Glenn Riley or Danny Bridge will be getting game time next season if they aren't loaned/DRed out, not leaving much room in that £75k for anyone else.
