It would be a calculated risk the club and coaching staff would be prepared to take to move us to the next level. On the playing side I still believe he can bring a quality we do not currently have. Some serious man management required to deal with him though. The upsetting the camp bit I don't really buy into to a greater level, its never as happy as you think it is from the outside. 30 egos competing for 17 shirts will never be without problems.
What would a Cockney know about rugby league?

MC and CC know what they're doing with recruitment, I'll back whichever decision they make.

EDIT: Also, I suspect there isn't a plethora of half backs available and we need cover. That's presuming the Reynolds signing is not happening....

Could it even be a case that we are only looking at someone for one year as a stop gap.

We have no quota spots available, and there aren't too many viable British options available for 2019, could it be that a quota space is being planned to be freed up at the end of the 2019 season, and that there are more viable options to bring into the club beyond that

During this time, Broughy works with the halves we have, to help develop their games further, and maybe just puts a few good games together, and helps us to break that top 4.

Who knows??

But in MC and Chessie, I trust

Agree with most comments on here. Think he could unsettle the whole squad with his poor attitude. For a fair few years we've been a team lacking in big egos and brimming with team spirit. Hope I'm proved wrong though if he does sign.

This is the main issue for me. The one thing our players always talk about is team spirit and how the whole club is like a family....Brough has the potential to unsettle this.

However, after considering it, i think its a chance we should take. Realistically, without a new ground the club may potentially not have many seasons left. Brough brings something to the squad we have not had for years, an amazing kicking game, the ability to control a game, confidence, quality, experience and he can land a drop goal!

We have lost so many games over the years by 1-4...could he give us those?
