2025 Recruitment : Tue Jun 11, 2024 2:14 pm  
Looks like the week off has seen clubs move forward with their recruitment plans for next year with many stories coming out in the media now.

Matt Shaw tweeting it looks like Seb Ikahihifo could be coming to us (would be a big signing) and we're still pursuing Jake Maizen.

On the fax board it looks like Joe Keyes and Matty Gee maybe coming to us.

I'd imagine we're likely to lose some quality too. I'd be amazed if Fulton isn't in SL this year, he's tearing the league apart as well as Doro rumoured to be going to KR

Ikahihifo and Maizen would be great signings. Not bothered about Keyes, only plays half a season.

Surely the perfect foil to Gaskell!

I think Gaskell is retiring at end of this season.

I’ve also heard Jack owens and Tom Gilmore mentioned

I'd be surprised if we re-signed Gaskell.

Keyes would be really good cover for either stand off or scrum half. Think we need a change there. Lilley moving to hooker would be better.

I think Fulton, Doro and Souter will all be looked at closely by SL clubs. Appo signed a 1 yr deal with a 1 yr option? I'm not sure who the option is in favour of - the player or the club?

I would be amazed if we can hang on to Eribe Doro, Zac Fulton and Mitch Souter for next season. They have all been a revelation this year and rightly deserve a crack at earning a full time Super League contract. I assume we will also lose Rogers, McGowan, Tindal and Okunbor when they inevitably return to their parent clubs. Add Blackmore and potentially Gaskell (retiring) to that list and we've got some major changes coming this off season.

The 2 names mentioned in this thread are very good additions to the squad but we will need a lot more people to come in to replace the players who are potentially leaving. I'd also prefer for us not to keep using short term loan players next season. Our injury record this year has been horrendous so EOC's hand has been forced slightly but I'd hope for a more settled squad next season.

Gilmore would be the HB we've been crying out for. A Controlling 7 who can kick goals.
