David Armstrong has been offered a contract by Newcastle, for how long and how much is unknown as yet. Once Ponga is fit he won’t play fullback, but they have said he could probably play wing in the same team. What has been said is that they haven’t much room on the cap due to others being given new deals. If we can go in with a multi year deal, with decent money, he could still come.

Hope he does, but can't see it with his scoring form since breaking into the team at Newcastle.

Ben Nakubuwai - season long loan. Does that mean he can be de-registered?

I have heard talk of us having three marquee players. I do not see us having a club trained marquee player for at least three seasons. As far as I understand the ‘Club Trained’ marquee dispensation, a player needs to have been on the club’s register for three years up to the end of the season in which he is no longer eligible for Under 21s. This player would count £50,000 on the salary cap. Even then we would need to sign one of the most talented 17 or 18 year olds and keep him for three years before he could count as a ‘club trained marquee player’ This player would then need to be on quite a bit more than £50,000 to make it worthwhile.

This was what I was trying to say, that we have nobody who fits the 3rd category marquee, but on numerous occasions, Deggsy has stated that we will have all 3 marquee positions filled. Go figure.

The three marquee players do not have to be one from each category. The only requirement is to have one "federation trained" player with a marquee contract. We managed to swing it so Lam has Fed trained status, so he will be one marquee. The other two can be overseas, which this season will be Asiata and Moylan.

I'd be looking to tie up Ipape on a marquee contract extension once this season is done.

So far, it seems we have for 2025;

1) O'Brien
2) Hanley
3) McIntosh
4) ?
5) Charnley
6) Moylan
7) Lam (though he may be free to leave if an NRL offer comes in)
icon_cool.gif Mulhern
9) Ipape
10) Trout
11) Hughes (rumoured extension not announced)
12) Halton
13) Davis

S - Dwyer
S - Norman
S - Martin (rumoured signing from Cas)
S - Pene (rumoured signing to come in this year)

Plus McNamara, Brogan

Then no idea what is happening with the likes of Nisbet, Brand, Gannon, etc.

I make it that we need to bring in 2 centres, a second row, loose forward and 1 maybe 2 props.

We have an extensive building job to do, Hull KR seem to be snapping up any talent early, I hope we sign some genuine starting 17 quality this time round and not just go for numbers like last time. We desperately need some pace.

Leythig, Thanks for clarifying the marquee player rules. I mistakenly thought the allowance was for one of each category, not three in total.

I think recruitment for this season, was pretty good to be honest. Moylan is a massive upgrade on Reynolds, while Trout and Norman both offer more than the likes of Ava and Wilde who often featured in the 17 last season. Unfortunately, we've made a mess of preparing for the season, with the S&C coach leaving and only having one friendly to get used to the new rules, has left us with lots of muscle injuries, regularly running out of steam in the last 20 minutes of games and being towards the top of the table for cards shown.

Biggest mistake recruitment wise was renewing Nakubuwai's contract, which cost us any chance of signing Sailor or Armstrong

We need several big forwards for next season. You need enough good forwards for 2 packs to have any chance of doing well in SL.

When are we going to announce the new signing Derek mentioned would arrive Friday. I thought it was Aaron Pene, but if you believe sarl he has signed for Salford for rest of season. The lack of news from the club makes you wonder if it’s true.

In respect to the sad news of the passing of Rob Burrows, It doesn't seem appropriate to reveal any signings at this moment in time to be fair.
