I accept it's only my deduction, not claiming any facts. What I was trying to point out was that it might be worth managing your expectations so you're not disappointed every off season, particularly bearing in mind we literally had this same debate more or less a year ago. I was right last off season. If I'm right again this time as well, maybe you'll change your view in 2020 :wink:

Apparently Shannon Boyd could be looking for a move to SL...imagine a front row of Burgess and Boyd!

That would sort out the lack of size problems!


He would add some size but given he is 1yr in to a 4yr deal with GCT I’d consider it unlikely plus do we have the cap space for him? I reckon he’d command a decent enough salary which would mean we’d probably have to shift off a few more to accommodate

Completely agree it doesn’t look too feasible but the article serious about rugby league posted, stated that GCT would be open to paying part of his salary as Holbrook is looking to move players on. Very unlikely but if they pay some of his wage you never know?

That would make a deal look more attractive certainly and a signing such as his would complete our pack and relegate players such as Clubb and Navarette into back up players IMO.

Right about what? What actually are you talking about?

I literally bullet point to highlight to you how you post flippantly without any substance; then randomly tell me you’re right and that I should manage my expectations?! It’s ok. Since 2019 we’ve signed George Burgess and current MOS and GB half Jackson Hastings

I’ll leave you to randomly posting whenever enters your head and debating about it. ;)

See you in 2020!

Na...I’m happy to discuss with whoever I like whenever I like.

Freedom of speech and all that ;)

Fair point! I was trying to show that we pretty much never make notable signings this late but as you say it got petty and life's too short. For me the real intrigue of the off season now lies in who we lose. I'm sure ideally they would get rid of Escare, Sammut and Navarette but they're all under contract, and I'm not sure what level of interest the latter two would generate.

I agree with that. Heard rumours of Sammut to Featherstone; but no more.

Freedom of speech doesn't exist.

Fell and Davies have now left so there will be room under the cap.
