We’ve only missed out if TS actually wanted to sign any of them. You don’t actually know that.



We were promoted over 3 month’s ago. To be honest if I thought our recruitment targets at that point were Lee and Walne I would have been disappointed. I know NH has tweeted we are strengthening but announcements can’t come soon enough.

The lists of players we’ve missed out on in Murdoch-Masila, Tagataese, Clark, Langi, Stewart, Sarginson, Farah, Abdull, and several fringe players at Leeds is a long one. Leigh and Wakefield by contrast appear not to be having the same issues.


In my opinion, you haven't 'missed out' on these two. Stewart had a very average season, considering his reputation, and has gone to 'junior' rugby back in Australia, while Langi merely showed one or two nice touches. Base on your two games against us last season, you already had much better players in your Championship squad.

Have we missed out on any of these. Did we want them?

Surely until we start the season and understand what sheens wanted then we'll never know. We might as well say we've missed out on Sam Burgess and James Graham.

Sheens does a good job of explaining where we are and why in his interview on Hkrtv. No sugar coating, but it takes away any mystery.

Quite a lot - it's nearly 18 minutes.

And whereas Mike Smith, perhaps worried about revealing something sensitive, tends to go with 'it's not really as simple as that...' or 'What fans sometimes don't understand is...' and then chuck out a word salad that leaves you not much wiser, Sheen gives us information which can be understood - even if it isn't want you'd want to be true. I think this approach should prevent some of the wilder theorising and the negativity that can result from it.
It won't be as good as watching the interview, but...

He explains the cap and non-fed situation. Although some way off the cap for much of 2017, we spent relatively big to get promotion. The arrivals of Carney, Masoe and McGuire, plus the promotion upgrades to contracts for players who took a cut for 2017, means we don't have 'half a million' burning a hole in our pockets. He notes that our situation is similar to Leigh's last year - not shying away from the implication of that. We've a couple of non-fed spots, but top end NRL players are no longer obtainable owing to the wages available over there.

There's some positive stuff on upgrades to facilities and linking up with York as sister clubs. Some senior players are not yet back in training following ops, but hopefully everybody will be ready for round 1.
