He has real place, but is very error prone, I think garbage is way over the top, if we can keep Ratu and Faramio, along with dawson and sign Swift, I would be happy with our wingers.

Glad we are looking at using our cap better and reducing the squad to add more quality players, with some good prospects coming through this should now be easier to do.

Another signing hung out to dry before he's even pulled the shirt on.

He's a good finisher, the big plus is he makes good metres per game and per carry. So would fit into our system, but as you mentioned he is prone to the odd clanger.

If he is the addition to the back line, i'd be happy. Its the forward pack that needs more attention.

Ok, I did say Carney “think he played” I know he was a dual international, and played Gaelic footy, but without trawling google I would be amazed if he never played Union before league, I suppose his schoolboy records will be somewhere.

Sorry for appearing pedantic, but I was corrected :D

Not a big fan of swift but suppose he is better than Logan . I do think some of our signings will go under the radar a bit . No way will we sign 5/6 top quality players , just as long as we get some. Quality in the forwards .

Perhaps he did play some union as a kid, just when you mentioned him I remembered his connection to Gaelic football, hence his involvement in sky's GAA coverage. I know that he was already playing league when Gateshead signed him though.

It’s no problem, but as the OP said, rugby union still, and always has had, some gems to be unearthed. Perhaps we could employ one of our former Welsh players, to scout for us in the valleys :D

The problem with union is the top clubs have more money to throw at players than the NRL.

Reducing numbers and adding quality then you advocate signing Adam swift? Hes garbage. We already have a garbage saints cast off winger and don't need another need to play in the reserves. 2 first choice wingers with one half decent one in reserve plus some kids who could do a job. Buchanan looks a decent prospect and doesn't need someone else blocking his path to the first team
