Well one bit of good news for the squad. is it may not be a player whos resigned next year or the next two years. Its Jamie Langley it has just been announced he is staying with us for the next two years.
This is great news, maybe and it is a maybe some of these other players who are thinking of moving on might just see it's worth hanging around if the coaching staff think it's worth being here.
Sorry if that dont made sense lol

I know that Danny Ward is getting all the attention at the moment, but I think Jamie Langleys contribution to the teams performance cannot be underestimated.
It is great news that he has signed up for two more years. I do see him as a ready made replacement for Danny, if he gets poached by another club.

Smith is good news to hear, and Aston will not let us down, feel for Corey he always seems to be so close to really breaking through Leeds & Castleford, but never quite makes it. Langley is also great news. I'm sure that Danny is half thinking about next season and players, but what is important how well the players are gelling together, giving their all, we could really stay up, but we can't exist on the attendances we are getting. Always remember back to the season when the Aussie clubs came over and were at The Stoop, the attendances then were quite reasonable, were they perhaps the best we have had?

In terms of Super League, our best average attendance was in SL1 at the Valley at 5,699 (including 10,014 vs Wigan in Round 21). The World Club Championship games happened the year after when we were at The Stoop. All these games attracted good crowds (Canberra 7,819;Brisbane 9,846;Canterbury 6,923;Cronulla 6,239). Our SL2 average was 4,941 (including 9,166 vs Bradford in Round 22 on a day that was memorable for other reasons).

Having finished 4th and 2nd in the first 2 years of SL, our crowds dwindled along with our form over the subsequent 4 years (2 more years at The Stoop then 2 years back at The Valley) and we averaged only 3,233 by SL6.

The move to Griffin Park seemed to stabilise crowds over the next 4 seasons (a period in which we also achieved the elimination playoffs twice). By our final season at Griffin Park we averaged 4,003 for SL10 (an average of over 4,000 for the first time since SL2).

The move back to The Stoop for SL11 saw an average of 4,917 but this was clearly distorted by a 12,031 gate for the visit of Huddersfield which was a double header with the Harlequins union side.

Our crowds saw a steady decline over this spell at The Stoop reaching an average of just 2,380 by SL18. This coincided with the slide to the nether regions of the league.

The capitulation was completed by the move to The Hive for SL19 where we averaged an abysmal 1,294 and got relegated to The Championship.

Let's just say the potential of the club to average 5,000+ with a competitive SL side has slipped away over time.
