We *could*, in some kind of alternate reality, have a spine as follows:

1. Hardaker
6. Ward
7. Gale
9. McShane

All internationals on their day, but getting on a bit now...

Other candidates who have come and gone include Ashton Golding, Jack Walker (looking doubtful for him now), Liam Sutcliffe (once touted as Sinfield's replacement), and Jordan Lilley. Corey Johnson still a possible. At one point Jack Broadbent looked to have some promise at full-back.

Think you can say the same about saints, Woolf was a gamble and now they are going with Wellens.

Even getting Hurrell was a gamble for them. I wonder how he'd do in a Rohan Smith team?

Woolf's CV was very different to Smiths, don't think gamble is fair.

They’ve literally the same CV over the last 20yrs. Like almost mirror images.

Id argue Smith’s is stronger given his family ties too.

I'd rank NRL assistant and coaching a Tier 2 nation to wins against Aus and NZ, above the Championship and Queensland cup, but each to his own.

Smith was also an NRL assistant and coached Tonga before all the NRL players signed up to make them competitive. Not that it matters, Woolf did a great job with Sts and Smith is doing well so far with Leeds. Be very interesting to see how Sts go. Is Wellens not getting the gig?

You do realise Smith has been assistant coach for NRL teams just as much, if not more than Woolf. Hes coached NYC and NSW cup teams, just like Woolf. He was also Tonga coach a few years prior to Woolf at a time when it was fashionable to choose Oz and NZ over heritage. Woolf has been extremely lucky with the players hes had at Tonga.

As i said. Pretty much the same CV.

******************************************what’s all this got to do with New recruitment ?

Nothing. Lets move on.

I assume we'll start to see announcements after this weekend's games. I wonder if there will be any surprises for us or whether it will just be the players already strongly rumoured to have signed.

Either way next season feels like a bit of a fresh start.

Gary Heatherington mentioned in the club video clubs can only have a squad of 25 players is this correct i thought that had been scrapped years ago?
