Tom Carr has been released from the last year of his contract for personal reasons.

Well I will say it Tom, if you're looking in, thanks a lot for your time at the Dons.
I never had a bad word for you ... only good ... that is not always the case with some players.
Always a pro, you kept in shape, even though injured.
A creative player and a fab goal kicker.
Good luck.

Far from our worse player but never did quite enough for me also defensively suspect but fingers crossed the money saved could be put towards an 8 or 10!

Well according to the RL Express, and forgive me if it was lost on me at the time of announcement, Tom Carr is leaving because our training days have changed and this clashes with the days he has his children.
If it hadn't then presumably he would still be with the Dons.
This also means that as soon as Tom can find a club to fit in with the care of his children he will be back playing.
And no doubt with a rival and putting points on us.
Hunslet maybe?
Great!

Weighman agreeing with me? I just need to sit down a minute! I had a chat with tony miller in a pub in town at the weekend he says we should be playing at castle park and no way should we have released mark castle, I've got alot of time for him he speaks honestly and he's a good bloke.

A big mistake getting rid of Mark Castle in my opinion ,especially after losing Feka.

This will hurt us next year , our two best go forward players, never afraid to roll their sleeves up and do the hard yards,
released to facilitate another Hull second string player and a prop who is moving jobs and doesn't want the hassle of driving miles to train.

Hull are using Doncaster to further their own ends and CH is happy to let it continue as it makes his job easier.

Liam Harris was very highly thought of at HKR and comes with high expectations.

He has signed for two years with a fee paid to HRK for his development over the years.
They offered him a new deal, which he turned down.
We are by all accounts paying him a large wedge while he trains full time with RH at Hull fc ............ what are the odds that after two years if he reaches his potential ,he will be away from us and turning out as a Hull fc player when his contract with us expires.

I have a feeling this is a good way for Hull to assess a new potential signing while the Dons cough up the cash.

With regard Boyle we are getting an experienced prop who could probably play in the Championship for another season at least .
Liam is a good player if we get him for the full 2 years & he goes on to SL cannot see what is wrong with that .

I too was upset we lost Castle .
