Would throwing a decent wedge at the likes of Ridyard put us ahead of Toronto and Toulouse? The club is building stronger foundations with the reserves and academy, long term that is the way forward not throwing silly money at mercenaries. Unfortunately we simply cannot compete with the spending power of Toronto and throwing cash at a few players this season would be a total waste of funds.

I know it’s a defeatist attitude but I just can’t see Toronto messing up this next season. However with the signings they have made not sure how they are going to keep them all happy? Would Brierley be a potential target for us?

Something we don’t seem to do anymore is pick up players from RU, not talking top level but the lower leagues there is talent out there that could be a worth a shot in the reserves.

Indeed, there may be another Chester Butler or a Carl Gillespie playing in West Yorkshire. Who would you suggest do the scouting on a Saturday Leon.

Brierley would be quality for us but if Ridyard/Sammutt are out of our league i'd imagine it would be the same for Brierley. A signing like that could just transform our team and with supporters stumping up for what is likely to be our main signing I would imagine they could be persuaded to do the same for someone in that class.

Some interesting comments and views on the recruitment topic. The priority for me is to build on solid foundations and for the long term success of the club both on and off the field.
There is one key caveat for me though and that is not to forget we are in the entertainments industry.
There is so much competition out there now for our money and our business model, whilst showing due diligence on the financials etc, should also have some form of speculative budget to provide and attract the paying customer.
Singing Twist & Shout at the end of every game, whilst providing atmosphere, isn't as good as seeing a class player coming up with some magic that gets you on the edge of your seat every time he has the ball etc.
I have been fortunate enough to watch Fax for over 50 years and have seen some class players/entertainers don the Blue & White during that time. We are due another tranche/individual to kick on from the momemtum currently being built on matchdays and in the community etc.
As the emphasisis both from the RFL and the BOD is ROI then why not do the sums on this player recruitment initiative?

Part of the issue (Well most of the issue) is the coach DOES NOT want to bring players into the positions most fans have identified as "in need" of improving. RM simply does not think we need to improve those areas. We are/were looking at a young lad from Swinton at HB but hes a future prospect. I think we need to push on and sign more quality and agree with many on here but I think the main signing stumped up by LS28 will be it....

His stubborness will be his downfall.
