Its all gone quiet on the Sammut front as I thought it was a done deal, either signed or loan.

I wouldn't rule out Brierley either but i suppose we will know more after Sunday ?

I really hope we have secured Sammut, the thought of Josh Woods for another season does not fill me with much expectation of our progress next year.

Josh is very much learning his trade. Sammut can be a game changer.

I can assure you all this squad of players have never trained like they have this pre season ever in there career this is what I like to hear as it can only make us better fitness = extra effort and win most of the close games

Great to hear. I am really liking the squad being put together.
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

That’s a little low Harry. Give the lad a chance. Sammut will show him the ropes.

In my opinion I am mot sure yet that this squad is much better than last year - having lost our 3 best forwards Douglas, T Adamson & Cator. The halves are the same as last year and I didn't think the backs who played at the end of last season Higson, Sau, Forsyth and Thornley created very much - maybe they didn't have time to gel. I think some quality dual reg players helped us do well in the first half of the season - I wonder if we have DR again this season?

Maybe Ince & Mullen will add a bit of pace and Addy and Wildie a bit of know-how in the forwards. Could do with a bit more quality to make this a top 2 squad.

Thanks for the update 'jp'. I tend to agree with you that the squad needs a bit more 'wow factor'. Hopefully, a couple more signings may move towards that.

I suppose we are back to the question of DR? Then strengthen come the business end. Would seem a logical answer rather than using your own.
