So, after last night's defeat (I wont go on about it much) wigan were the better side, deserved the win (even with some dubious decisions from kendall). We gave all we had, but still fell short.

Now, moving forward. What do we need to go further next season? My opinion is, we need a new coach. Last has done well to steady the ship and got the lads enjoying playing again. But for me, not enough to get the job full time. I think we need fresh ideas , someone established. Good style of play etc.

I think we need a new running stand off, keep conner at fb. Then, depending on what goes on with Jones, look at bringing in some more impact from the bench. Fash gives his all and tackles well, but doesn't offer much punch in attack.

What's everyone else's thoughts?

I don't think wholesale personnel changes are required (let alone feasible).
Definitely need a new stand-off who is a running threat.
If Jones goes we need a replacement however this could either be a direct 2nd row replacement or another prop. If its a prop then Sao can play 2nd row if needs be.

I think the biggest change needs to be line speed. We consistently give up so much ground just waiting for the opposition.

As for a coach, I think a new influence would be welcome. However I'd rather us not appoint someone just for the sake of it. If the right person isn't out there atm then I'd support Last for another year. He's done enough to make me optimistic that we would be a solid outfit under his leadership.

At the moment it looks like this.

OUTS;

Ellis

Ratu

Kelly

Bienek

Buchanan

Harris

Jones?

(might have missed some out)


INS; (what I think we need)

NRL Stand off

Quality prop

Maybe a squad back rower.

We need some genuine pace - from a new 6 and a new winger

If we get Swift fit we have some pace.

I'd love us to make a bid for Sam Tomkins leaving us with a quota spot for a forward.

Although if we want pace I wouldn't mind the Senior who is one loan at Wakey, make it part of the Jones deal.

Can see us offering Swift out. Won't be on a small wage, and his performances earlier in the year were poor.

Lots of wingers out there that can offer more, for less money IMO

If Connor stays at FB, Shaul to the wing perhaps? Decent under a high ball and has pace.

I would. Same height as Regan Grace, deceptively strong, and can focus on just playing a running game than being a pivot.

Out for the most of next year though

Like who, harsh to judge him on what 5 games, in fact he played well in his last game before injury,I'm sure he scored two good trys didnt he.

If I'm getting rid of a back it would be Fonua, quots spot, one of our highest paid players and really hasnt performed.
