are we likely to sign another HB or will we go with someone like JWH?

You definitely need another H/B.
Gilmore played 56 games in 8 seasons at Widnes is made of biscuits and not very good.

Just to put in to some perspective the Widnes fans also don't think Shane Grady or Ste Tyrer are very good. I get the feeling they are still rating players as if they are a SL side.

I think Grady would be a good addition but believe me you won't get anything out of Gilmore he's very overrated.

Well just look on the Widnes forum to see about Tom Gilmore and is a very poor player. Shane Grady actually played okay in a Widnes shirt, but Gilmore was always injured and most games that he did play was shocking. I wish him well though in his new venture and probably what the lad needs. I definitely would not want Grady though as a player as we should go for better.

Just hoping the guy does well in blue n white or purple!. must have something about him by being included in the England set up, but does read as though he is a tad fragile,
Welcome Tom Gilmore and prove the doubters wrong.

very uninspiring signing-sounds like he was getting released anyway.Why can't we get someone upcoming like Fairclough at Swinton who mugged us off all over the park other week.

I think the second point is a fair one (some of the players on the "wish list" thread on their forum are quite amusing), but to be fair they have been critical of Gilmore almost to a man on their forum all year.

Connor Robinson never was outstanding at Halifax but tearing it up at York now.

Tom Gilmore might be just stale at widnes and ready for a new challenge.

Before writing him off before he has even pulled on a blue and white shirt is a bit unfair.

That the one that is supposedly 'realistic' and where the OP starts of by including Chisholm from Bradford?
