This sounds odd to me.
Out
Mellor
Broadbent
Muizz
Dwyer
Briscoe
Thompson
Sutcliffe

5 of numbers 1-20.

In
Sangare
mcdonnell

And we have no more cap space ? I expect we have some others lined up.
I get O’Connor upgraded but if nobody else is coming in, we look wafer thin next year and much weaker than this.

There's something very amiss if that's true about the cap - i.e. its been managed about as badly as possible. Even with our full squad before departures there must be some players earning way more than they're worth if we are spending the same as Sts, as in a player-by-player matchup they are stronger in the majority of positions (I'd make it about 9 out of 13 at full strength, possibly more).

For what its worth I suspect we're not as close to the cap as GH is trying to make out. It makes good sense to hose down the expectations of incoming players. We're certainly not in the Golden Generation era where we could perhaps pay less than market value, but given where we're at now there's no reason to pay overs or sign anyone too long any more.

It doesn't if the players you're after go elsewhere... :wink:

If that's the case then what's the plan around who's playing centre?

How on earth are we up to the cap with all the senior players leaving compared to the relatively inexperienced incoming so far?

Me too. Think Walker getting injured at Hull (always a risk) has put a fly in the ointment. Sounds like GH is really keen on keeping Zack.

Walker wasn’t involved in any of the GF stuff from what i can see on SM so maybe reading too much into it but he seems in the ‘outer’ so to speak
