We have got a new pack next season, Burgess, Bullock, Clark, Byrne and Partington. Throw in Hastings the best half back in Super league. Move French to full back, Hardaker to centre. Get Lockers, Manfredi and Tommy to retire, move Navarette , Flowers on along with Shorrocks, Woods, Davies and J Burgess. This would free up some salary cap to bring in a back row forward and a half back. Suggest then we wont be far off next season

If that is our new pack we are screwed. Bullock, Clark, Byrne and Partington. There is nothing to suggest the first two are SL standard (Bullock was nothing special before his injury and Clark could not make Cas 1st tream). Byrne and Partington are great prospects but if played all season will fade at the end.

Dream on. We need some solid forwards who graft. Can somebody explain why our backs try to bring us out of our 20, whilst our forwards dominate our plays when we are in the opposition’s 20?

Looking a bit feckless again
Meds, you told us that Hank was SL standard, he is quite clearly not.

We only ever get pens on the first or second tackle off this mon
The ref wasn’t great but he was a darn sight better than some of our players. We need to show several the door.

French needs to start and Greenwood should be at least on the bench for me
Greenwood has lost his mojo, he needs a period out of the game to recuperate.

So bad its shocking.

Props are powder puff, Halves have no organisation thankfully we will get that side upgraded after next week.
Not sure about that, we need to be ruthless and get rid of some more players we haven’t the depth in the squad that many believe.

Time for some hard decisions in the off season, it's simply not been enjoyable watching tonight. Been our 2 worst performances of the season, when the two best were needed.
Exactly.

Just look forward to next season. Like it’s been said on here we did show some improvements as the season when on but always got the feeling we were punching above our weight.
Can’t wait to see the new signing next season, think Hastings is a right coup.
Still not sure about Lam, team selections are abit worrying. He also needs to tell lockers to RETIRE!
Big question, have we improved or gone backwards this season?

Ending the season like they started
Fair dues though we turned it around fought above our weight for most of the second half of the season but ended up found light in some areas...

Still praying french can get the ball...
Backed him for last try of the match but forgot I’d done it so did it again 😊 best thing about the game 🙄
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
