Hamlin and Isa were our main forward cover last year, but both are likely to be first choice now with us losing Sutton and Bateman. We have Partington, Wells, Paisley, Kibula, Field, Barnes and Byrne in reserve. Tautai and Bullock give us some depth, but I still think we will see a lot of at least one of those young players in 2019. However, it's debatable who is next in line.

I've always liked the look of Wells, but he's coming back from a bad injury and rumoured to be going out on loan to Salford, so I'll say Field, who has racked up a few first team games now and looked OK. Kibula seems to be the one who there is most anticipation about, but he's young and doesn't seem that aggressive, so I'd prefer him to go out on loan. Partington shot ahead squad numbers wise, which may give us an indication. I've not seen enough of him to comment. Which (if any) of our young forwards do you see establishing themselves in 2019?

Or we could sign someone then spend a week slagging him off before hes even played, criricise IL and rads and Lammy then when it works pretend we said they were going to be good all along????

Not a dig at you personally by the way just a general obsevation.

So it's ok for posrers who have no knowledge of what a club is or isnt doing behind the scenes contractually, or what a player earns or what the day to day business running of a club are and the many issues that go on behind the scenes - to be slagged off and criticised by those posters.
Yet when those posters are criticised as per above you don't want them to be as their only opinions?
If your not worried about the club being criticised why you worried that the posters are criticised? I mean he's only expressing an opinion.

Seems like a one way street to me?

Sit back and criticise the club when we literally have no actual knowledge of certain things.
But don't want to be criticised for doing that?

Take some of your own words on board, don't be a snowflake, give it a rest, it's only hisnopinion for crying out loud.

Don’t really know what a snowflake is to be honest. But i am certainly not scared of opinions, in fact i agree totally that forums are for opinions with substance, not pre judged opinions so they can claim to be the first person who said he wasnt good enough. People just make things up then twenty minutes later it’s perceived as the truth. Befor you know it theres 500 people who think its true when its a complete fabrication.

Back on topic
Really looking forward to seeing bullock (not sure if this counts).

From within it's wells and paisley for me.
Look like they've got the physical attributes.

That's pretty much what some said on here when we signed Hamlin. A few in particular stand out.

Yeah I'm thinking of Bullock as a bit more senior than those lads given that he's 25 and already shown he can tear it up in the Championship, obviously there's still a challenge for him in stepping up, but he's firmly in front of them in the queue.

Wells and Paisley - It would be good to bring through a back rower with some size wouldn't it? I'm not sure that smaller back rowers like Gilmour and Walker will exist in future, I can see young players of that mould being automatically pushed into the centres.

Wells I’ve always liked the looks of but he needs some luck with injuries and to grab hold of his chance by the knackers. I’m hoping he’s having a big pre season and putting himself in with a shout. I also liked the looks of Paisley last year and I believe the club are impressed with Liam Byrne. Maybe he’s not shown it yet but Callum Field has looked well of the pace in the games he’s played in the first team.

As I’ve said in another thread, I think we need one more experienced signing in that pack to give it the required depth.

Tomkins (overrated/past his best), for this year hardaker and all the reasons why he's a bad buy
Davies- didn't score enough tries
Sarginson- rubbish full stop
Gildart-not as good as he thinks he is, how dare he try and get a good deal from Wigan, let him go to saints even though it was just social media rubbish, why should we pay him good money he's a Wigan junior and he should play for nothing.
Burgess- let him go oz as he's said that one day he's like to give it another go.
Williams, absolute rubbish, never marquee, no kicking game blah blah blah
Tommy - never a 7 should play 9
Clubb- doesn't seem to get much criticism but actually for me is one of the least contributions to our success, but he has a catchy song so must be good.
Powell - only plays cos he's wanes love child, he's a 2 time grand final winning 9 load of rubbish.
Flower - fair enough doesn't get much criticism
Isa - journeyman load of rubbish
Farrell - again, not much criticism
Lockers - get rid, too old, injury prone
Sutton - rubbish, wonder why oz club's wanted a 2 time grand final winning 22 yr old?

Etc,etc,etc

I'm surprised we win any games never mind grand finals and world club challenges.

Must be the coach? Nope, he was rubbish as well!
Must be the owners and youth set up, no because we should be copying Warrington and signing big name players and not worrying about promoting youth, let's copy them.

Even if we win something it doesn't count as the league's not as good as it was.
