Given the reasons he’s moving from Salford, I for one wouldn’t be surprised if Danny Orr is part of the first team set up next season. Straight swap for Long.

I would be happy with that and a better choice than Danny Ward imo.

I'd rather Smith brings in someone from Australia that he knows. Its the home of the best coaches as well as the best players.

I`m not sure about this appointment of Walker.
Is it down to his ability or his friendship with Smith.
Let`s hope we don`t have another debacle when Sinfield gave jobs to his mates and extended contracts to other favourites when clearly it wasn`t based on their skill set.
On the other hand Walker might be a great coach and Smith has made the right decision.

I would have been very sceptical at the start of the year, but facts are facts - the Academy have just won the championship for the first time in years. Got to give him credit for that.

Don`t get me wrong I`m sure Smith knows what he`s doing getting rid of Long and replacing him with another of the golden generation.
And having someone in there you know has your back and you can trust is always a good thing.
Apart form him winning the GF with the Academy he`s not been well thought of before that.
Maybe he`s developed now as Smith certainly sees something in him.
Saying that didn`t he get rid of Long before Walkers team won the GF?

RS doesn't come across as someone who would give his mate a job if he wasn't good enough, and it risks putting the club back. Smith works with Chev on a daily basis, knows his approach to the game, knows his philosophy and sees how he interacts with the players. I have no idea on any of these, so aren't passing judgement. We'll know if it's a good appointment during the season. But good luck to Chev, he's a great bloke and he's done a great job winning the Academy title this season

Tempting as it is to try to guess the underpinning philosophy and strategy of the club's signings and appointments, maybe the overiding concern is to do things as cheaply as possible?
