Any news on Ukuma contract?

Thought he’d be ideal player with new rule changes.


Nothing on Taai at the moment.

Hearing that Clough, Walne and Murphy wont be offered new deals.

Joe Wardle had supposedly signed a new deal.

It's happening game wide. Clubs can afford expensive overseas signings but apparently they can't afford to pay the pittance that the teenagers in our sport earn.


Too true , next they'll be complaining how they've lost a generation of young players but don't know why .

So where are we with this?

Confirmed leavers:
Murphy/Clough/Walne/Young/Matagi

Still to be sorted/announced:
Wardle/Ta'ai/Cudjoe

Are Oli Roberts & Seb still under contract and will they come back under Watson?

Any thoughts on who Watson has in mind to bring in, I've seen Josh Jones mentioned but i'm not sure we need another second row (albeit he would definitely add to what we have), I think we need a couple of big props (no more Bruno/McQueen/Hewitt in the front row) and another specialist hooker.

From what I have read,Seb will remain with Salford for 2021. Leroy new one year deal to end of 2021.
Not sure about Roberts.

Ta'ai is worth another season - as a prop or loose now,not second row.

Matagi moving out,didn't see that one coming,our most improved player last year and our best go forward man.

The club got the overseas recruitment right with McQueen, carries it up strong and grafts hard on defence.

Thinking Cunningham will share the 9 role with O'Brien who thankfully will make a full recovery from the serious injury.

Hewitt is a fair prospect,hoping the new coaching staff could work to improve his all round game.

Ian Watson's success with Salford fairly obviously was getting the best out of props (and other positions) who were considered to be on the way down the pecking order,the likes of Mossop/Dudson so we may be surprised at some of his recruitment,and some might think 'why sign him he's past it'
Have to trust him.

Never a dull moment just now.

Since Cudjoe returned and looked like he had never been away,the coaches struggled to know what to do with Turner.

I was wanting them to give him more time in the halfs because when he stood in for Gaskell,due to JT's extra pace him and Sezer looked the most threatening half back pairing we had all season. Admittedly Gaskell has the better kicking game.

Other times JT just covering from the bench,then they stuck him in at loose where he didn't look comfortable. So not that surprised he has moved on.

Gaskell has a new 1 year deal,let's hope he can steer clear of injuries - in Watson we trust.
