All this talk of Craig Hall improving and been a must sign is a little premature I think , has he been tested really ?
Lets face it he has looked improved but in all honesty we have been playing championship rugby with him in the side and as the last poster said he was average against Salford


Hes looked good on the wing and scored tries, he's not quota and I don't think he'll be on big money, as long as we don't put him anywhere near full back or pay over the odds then I think its a really good signing.

To put this into context he scored a hell of a lot more tries than Carney against the same opposition, Justin never looked like scoring most games and apart from a decent out set or 2 he offered very little.

If he became available there would be a queue for him. Pure quality player and the type of player we need. Would love to have him back, but can,t see it.

Regarding fullback, if we’re not signing a specialist i’d assume plan A is to put Atkin there and sign a halfback. Then if Dagger kicks on that’s a bonus.

According to TS Dagger is the starting full back next year

Fair enough. Be interesting to see how he goes - certainly looks talented.

Rumour has it, Sio is heading back to SL, 2 clubs interested, KR must be one of them, one would think

I'm not so sure Rovers would be interested in any case we only have his agents word that 2 SL clubs are chasing.

Obviously Sio is a very good winger even though most of our fans wanted to convert him to a full back. (By the by... except that with Quinlan signed till 2020 that is surely not even a consideration now and anyway Sheens has said Dagger will start at FB))

So Sio would be an out and out winger and now that Hall has signed and with Shaw, Oakes and Wallis also contracted he would really be taking cap from more pressing areas.

Ken Sio had 2 great years at Rovers but we can't wait around our whole lives for him. We have had to move on and so has he.....our priorities have changed.
I couldn't hear the robin sing if not for you.

Sio would be an upgrade on anything we have. In fact he is an upgrade on any SL winger.He was superb for us and one of the few who left with no blame attatched to them for 2016.If possible I'd sign him no doubt.The likes of Thornley and Walker deserted us without hesitation.Sio and Mantellaro gave everything they had..Brilliant person brilliant player .Can we afford him?

Got to disagree with HB on this, I'd take Sio back in a heartbeat.

I've alluded to the fact on a couple of other posts I personally think we need a metre making winger to start sets properly, he was our top metre maker two years in a row.

He was a great finisher, and a great defender. All round top player. Imagine him of the outside of Vaivai it would be deadly.

It was also show intention, and be a good boost for season pass sales. With regards to affording him craig, we have just released 9 players surely we have cap to play with.
