Linked with us for next year. Personally I think it would be a great addition. Yes he’s 32, but he’s a cracking playing and defence is second to none.

When I saw he was leaving Salford I assumed it would be to us.

I’m expecting Gale too to be honest.

Taylor I think is a cracking player tough and uncompromising forward. I’ve no doubt he could give us 1 maybe 2 good years.

Gale (if my guess is true) could go either way. We were told that Lino was the replacement for Finn we had lacked in the controlling half position. Lino is a quality half but he isn’t that type of player.

Gale could be the man to take on that role but I do worry about his attitude. Prone to having a good sulk if things don’t go his way, which invariably they won’t week in week out at Trinity.

Well they fit the age profile but on reflection Taylor may be a little on the youthful side. I would prefer we try to keep the existing contracted player than going down what could be considered the Brough route. I would hope we have learned our lesson but maybe not.

I’m not convinced by this purely because for next season signed up we have

LF -
Crowther (who is improving with consistent game time)
Pitts - looks to be doing a good job moving to 13
O’Donnovan - doesn’t seem to be getting the opportunities as yet.
Bowes - can play 13 too.
Battye - at a push can spell at 13.

I honestly don’t think he would offer more than Crowther/Pitts.

I who knows though. Maybe he will be a quality addition.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Both Taylor and Gale are too old. We need to stay away from over 30’s.

Shame we don’t have a young half coming through that’s almost ready.

I would rather us use our quota spots on prop/halfback position if necessery. That’s assuming Miller is even leaving. News is pretty quiet from the club on signings.

Offers nothing that Crowther already doesn’t. 33 at the start of next season, released by Salford as he’s asking for too much money and very much on the way down. No thanks.

And as for Gale, it’s time for him to retire. Too old, too slow, too expensive, he’s done.

Yes I think I agree with the above. Crowther especially is finally starting to look every bit a superleague standard LF and some of that is regular game time. I honestly don’t think it’s a necessery signing.

I would much rather us look for a quality half (If Miller is going) or a set of quality props. Would rather see us look for a destructive wide runner SR of Batch is leaving.

We must get recruitment right for 2023.

Bowes at 13 - no thanks we have better. Bowes is a good prospect at No 9.Where the heck does this come about Gale? He's had his best years elsewhere and nearing the end of his career. I know that Finn was also nearing the end when he came to us but I'd have Finn anyday instead of Gale.
Don't like him and wouldn't like him wearing the RW and B.
