This is why the club don't need a marketing department, they can just copy and paste your comments, bang on.

Also, great news about Sam Wood signing up for the next few years, hope he gets some game time now!

You are right about Connor, it's sickening to see how well he is progressing at Hull, with his good hands and rugby brain he was always going to make a good half. He's not the quickest, but he has the x factor, especially near the oppositions line.

good news on sam wood, think he could be a good second rower for us

prob see him play centre tonight and never let us down.

we have lost jake connor, mullally and joe wardle in recent times... wasnt long ago we used to lose players and they werent much of a loss as they never went onto do anything but maybe we are losing a few now

cant keep them all though remember!!

Brough - well he’s not the player he was- but replacing him would be difficult. Of those left there is only Hinchcliffe who I’d be sorry to see leave. The rest are easily replaceable with similar players.
Why not play Broughy at 9 it would give us a few more options and he would be fresher coming off the bench.I can see Hinchcliffe doing another season Jools but we will see.

The way to improve a team is to replace good players with better players when they are available.If they are not available then you have to stick with what you've got.There appear to be less and less players in the market every year and more and more competion for those that are available(the likes of Toronto and Tolouse have contributed to the situation).Recruitment is becoming harder and harder and if a player is wanting to win medals and honours they are not going to come to us.I would be quite happy to lose one overseas player if that money was used to run a reserve team and develop the academy further,this is where the future of all clubs lie

I would honestly lose 2 overseas players myself.

If we lost Symonds and Wakeman this season, it wouldn't make a difference to our team really.

brough gets his 1 yr deal, cant say im overjoyed but super league isnt improving so he can still operate at this level, unfortunately its mean we wont improve as a team for another 12months at least, certainly in attack and kicking goals anyway... get to see him mouthing off at every play another player makes too that doesnt come off which i dont like to see its not good for the team, one thing we can never question though is his effort..

worried we could be losing ferguson , would much rather we signed him up asap

I think the real way to develop a winning team - and more so in the current circumstances you describe - is to develop it in house. Get the core of the team from your own youngsters, then bring in some stardust.
