Joel Moon to Leeds gives them a terrifying 1-5:

1. Hardaker
2. BJB
3. Watkins
4. Moon
5. Hall

I mean... how is that fair Leeds? :)

We've already knocked back a 250k offer from leeds for lulia. Cant see lenaghan offering that much TBH.

That's a pretty strong back line with some real quality and pace.

Would happily see all that 4 of those players at Wigan, jury is out on BJB.

I was told weeks ago we was interested in Hardaker but brushed it off thinking Leeds wouldn't let him go but the Moon signing might put weight on it

For the record i dont think we will see him in a Wigan shirt next year
[quote="Mark"]Great game of rugby league. Fantastic atmosphere, Wigan were breathtaking and dominant in all areas for the first 25 minutes, coupled with us making alot of dumb mistakes,then fortunately they brought McIlorum on which helped us back into the game. I thought some of the tries we scored to get us within two we're out of this world stuff. Towards the end we had to force it a little and we had a few things go wrong, i.e Monas kick on the first for King and Solomona going off who was causing havoc. Wigan were clinical in their eventual execution of us. Proud of Wire today and gave us a little glimpse to the future. Silverwood was awful as per, but I expect no less. Tomkins is a world class player and by far the best english player in SL. Wigan are a champion side and would be a worthy winner of taking our title as challenge cup. Good luck over the next month and a bit.[/quote]

We should have pushed the boat out further for Hardaker when we had the chance. We won't be signing him anytime soon I'm afraid.

Leeds 1-5 is very good and the halfbacks are as good as any. They have a pack that can stand up to any when they're interested but it's ageing and will need some smart recruitment/promotion work pretty soon.

We were in for him when he was at Fev as were most top clubs but he chose Leeds.

He will be Leeds fullback next season.

Of course you have.

I mean it's not like Bradford need the money.

take it you didn't notice the 1.2 million sponsorship deal a couple of weeks ago. We aren't as hard up as people think now historical debts are gone. Us knocking Leeds back over lulia is a matter of public record.

No one doesn't believe you, Lulia or both knocked back Leeds.
What we are all incredulous about is the rumoured £250k transfer fee offer from Leeds.

If Bradford knocked back 250k for Lulia then I have no faith these new owners will take them further then the last lot!!

Take the cash, use his wages to pay another signing who they could probably get for free (Tonga? Gleeson?) or less then 250k anyway (Moon?) and have a tidy sum to take forward for other players/projects.

It's not as though he's a Bateman type who people would be devastated to lose. I can't see the figure being right anyway tbh.
