Chris Atkin

Apparently we're looking at signing Hull KR's Chris Atkin? I thought we didn't have any room on the cap? Unless this is meant to be for next season.

Unless he’s injured he isn’t even in their team. If I.L. wants more bums on seats he’s seriously going to have to get a more high profile player to replace George.

Its ridiculous how low we are going Warrington sign Austin and Widdop and we dredge the bargain basement for crumbs . Its now obvious IL has no idea how to run a Rugy League Club . Never answers awkward questions and hides behind front man Rads . We are becoming a laughing stock and its time we told Shaun Edwards to just F---k off.

Doesn't mean it'll work out this time. At least Green was their starting stand off.

IL knows what he is doing, spending as little as possible and ensuring he is in pocket.He treats fans with no respect and the sooner he goes the better.And before anyone asks who I suggest takes over i couldnt give shite as we are becoming a joke and things will only get worse.

This is another blow to the fans, why aren’t we going for world class players. We are getting a lump sum for Williams and freeing up cap space.

Not just cap space, marquee player space. With Williams gone we'll have 2 marquee spots free. If we want to remain competitive with Wire and Saints then we need to use both.

Exactly right. We can’t compete with clubs if we are not using up the marquee spots that IL voted in.
