It’s strengthening the squad, but not necessarily strengthening the team. For me, I’d prefer to see us work on strengthening the top 20 players and promote the kids to take the remaining positions outside the 20.
Macdonald is an up grade on Sutcliffe.

You're signing Luis Roberts from us (Leigh) but will probably have an academy type contract. (His mate told me 2 weeks ago he had signed) though I didn't think it was true.
But now Matthew Shaw has commented on it, so must be true. :D

Hardly played for us, 3 or 4 games tops. Likes to try and keep the ball alive in the tackle, and has some pace for a tall boy. He's about 6' 3" at least, but could do with some meat on him. That's it sorry, think I've only seen him play twice.

He's only 20 Tad.From his highlights looks decent under high ball has pace and a step on him. 6ft.4 Smith has obviously seen potential there. He'll be on a lower wage bracket.

I cant see us replacing Tet or Prior until 24.

As pointed out earlier we will need to find two good props,one or two HBs and maybe a winger.
That's a big shopping list given the quality we need.
I'm hoping they are looking into it now and not waiting for last minute bargain bin

That depends doesn't it -sign younger lower league players with potential as part of the wider squad doesn't = end up in lower league.

Joe Batchelor and Alex Wamsley both came from the lower leagues.

I don`t get it with Olpherts or Hooley for that matter.
Whilst Olpherts is an upgrade on Briscoe he is still behind Fusitua and Handley and we still have Tindall.
Hooley like I`ve said before is good going forward but his defence is questionable and is behind Myler and Hardaker.
Whilst the centre from Leigh looks good and is an upgrade on Sutcliffe I`ve not seen anywhere that he`s a confirmed signing.

But we're not keeping ZH though, and Walker is broken. Another FB for the squad is essential
