If Hastings doesn’t come I’m thinking go all out in the popularity stakes and bring in Ben Barba and Israel Folau.

Well I’d actually take him with open arms even if he is a bit of a tool. The other two don’t seem feasible for anybody.

Heard a rumour that there's a big signing in the pipeline for 2021.

I hope this is true. It would show a huge change in direction to the clubs transfer policy. Thinking ahead now rather than later. They probably know Hastings, Gildart and maybe Smithies will have moved on and want to get things in place. This would be a good sign, even if it is only announced at the end of the season. You have opened a can of worms now Maddog :lol: :lol: This will rumble on all season long now. Every news clipping will be scrutinized :lol: :lol:

Looking at 2021 we could be in a position where we need a new coach, two new halves and lose both Tommy and lockers

You’re probably not too far wrong there. Though I don’t think we’ll need 2 new halves rather just the one, we have one already in young Harry Smith.

Don’t think it’s really fair to the current recruitment to say it would be a huge direction to the clubs transfer policy.

We have signed the current Man of Steel and a huge name in Burgess.

I don’t really see 2 bigger name recruits in SL for 2020.

I do think we will be looking at 2 new halves for 2021. Hastings I’m sure will be off and TL will be more than likely retire. Smith for me will be backup so I’d expect an older head and a lad coming into his peak.

One thing is for sure we are desperate to know what people’s plans are now, not in 6 months time.

Locky is gone. So we know that.

We will probably have 1 maybe 2 marquee sports available if rumours are true that this will increase to 3.

I don’t have any factual basis or inside info however I do just have a feeling we will see Sam Burgess at Wigan in 2021.

Biby may have been brought in to replace Gildart who I wouldn’t be shocked to see go, regardless of contract status.

I’m looking forward to 2020 and focusing on that. My main concern is Burgess as he is a lot of salary cap on a player who hasn’t hit his top form in a couple of years but I believe we should really be competitive on all fronts.

2021 signings though should be very interesting indeed I admit.
