Warrington “scouring the world” for a half-back, admits CEO Karl Fitzpatrick

http://www.totalrl.com/warrington-scour ... itzpatrick

I assume this is to hold the Karoke mic whilst Brown storms it in the halves.
Bad news for Patton and Smith.
Sponsoring Fitzpatrick's Coffee run since 2017...I used to post a lot, then I didn't

Why is it bad news?
When Smith had been playing hooker whilst he and Patton have have much game time this season?

My money would be on Benji Marshall. Just appears we have decent links with Brisbane in each direction and I think they are struggling to keep him in their salary cap for next year.

i just hope whoever we get will be here for 3 seasons, and has 3 seasons in them too !!

Next year is a big one for Patton he has had a good amount of time on the pitch this year and must look to make the half nack spot his own. Smith has time to fill out a little more and gain more first team experience he too has had a lot of minutes on the pitch which will help him and in all fairness he has played well when called on. I like his crisp sharp passing that is accurate too something super league in general is missing imo

What we want is a quick thinking back that'll attack the line like Williams at the pies. We've enough backs that prefer to look for a pass or kick.

It's vital for any chance of success next year we must get a proven half back, and throw in brown as part payment, if they are short of a steward . For me Patton as been average this year. The last few games last year fans from other clubs were saying how good he was and he was our future, but he hasn't kicked in this year

Sure we need a competent reliable half back, but first we need to bring in a Morley/ Peacock variety prop/ pack leader to assert and motivate the forwards.
That's the direction the cheque book needs pointing, otherwise deja vue

He is average. Not sure why everyone expects him to be a world beater.

If he hadn't come through our system he wouldn't even be here. There is so much work needed on the squad but I have zero confidence in the club to come up with the goods

2 new big wingers who can do more than just scoot
2 new h/bs who pose a threat at the line
New prop to replace Sims

.... we'll probably sign a full back and 7 utility players instead
