Re: 2022 OUT | Alex Mellor - Castleford Tigers : Tue Jun 21, 2022 9:24 pm  
For me Mellor was a strange signing at the time as we had plenty of options at 2nd row and Mellor didn’t seem to add anything different to what we already had.

Didn’t look the same player for us as he was at the giants..but there again that’s not the first time we’ve had that with ex-giants signings

Very very average. No loss at all. Look to be clearing room for an addition to me.

I'm with cheeky, Mellor was a bit of a head-scratching signing at the time. He should be at the absolute peak of his powers but he's behind Bentley, Martin, Gannon and seemingly Thompson as well.

He won a Challenge Cup though, and good luck to him moving forward.

Smith has indicated that he wants to work with young players and have a smaller pool of older experience within the group.
We have too many squad players in the late 20s early 30s bracket and as such its a good move for all parties. Mellor will get game time and it gives more opportunities for Walters and O connor without weakening the squad. Also puts some cap back in the pot for next year possibly covering the Sangere contract.

Just be surprised if Toulouse would release him in the middle of a relegation battle.
They might if we payed a fee.

No idea where Toulouse are on the cap but potentially them freeing Sangare may allow them to sign a marquee player, albeit I suspect not.

It doesn't make sense to offload players if we are not bringing anyone in, however, I understand Broadbent is recallable if required?

I get the feeling from Smith's interviews if your not here next year then your no use to me.

Talking of players leaving to go to Cas

Have Alex Sutcliffe or Callum Mcllelland actually played for them yet?
Re: 2022 OUT | Alex Mellor - Castleford Tigers : Thu Jun 23, 2022 11:28 am  
Neither both injured I think

Sutcliffe has, don't think McLelland has
