It may have already been discussed elsewhere but who takes over goalkicking duties if Ratchford doesn't start?

Interview with Powell due to be released on club website tomorrow.

In terms of recruitment, Powell revealed he is still looking for a half-back and a centre for next season in order to complete his squad.

For a few years now, we seem to do the equivalent of Xmas shopping in a service station on Xmas Eve, taking whatever is available, regardless of whether it's apt, useful or serves a purpose. If were after a centre and a half, it does make me wonder who we will sign up.

A couple of years ago I recall seeing a piece on TV where Powell, Sheridan etc sat down before the start of a season to weigh up recruitment and retention for the season beyond the one they were about to start. I remember them discussing a uk based pivot and about 8 months last they announced Evalds for the following season.
It looked like they were way ahead of the game thinking long term so I dont quite get how we have ended up in this situation.
I guess they may not have seen the Toby King scenario coming but I dont get the halfback situation.

Ironically, the place you’re most likely to pick up a Toby King.

To be fair we had Dudson, Kasiano, Vaughan, McGuire, Dufty, Mikaele & Nicholson all signed up and announced very early, 3 of them we managed to get to come in this season. All seem to fit a narrative of a dominant forward pack, with pacey backs and planning for the future in terms of Nicholson.

Wardle seems to have been organised early too, but somethings clearly gone wrong, had King ripped it up at Hudds i'm sure he would have stayed at Hudds and Wardle would have stayed here - Wardle still might - season has finished and Wigan were supposed to have signed him ages ago, so why no announcement?

In terms of the half back, my guess is Powell hoped Ratchford would be able to cover, but his view seems to have changed. He is now reliant on moving on a couple of players it seems before he can bring in a half, so we can't sign anybody until we have resolved that situation - maybe we have an agreement already in place, hard to tell.

Brilliant response. I'd have responded earlier, but it took a while to mop up and dry out the cup of tea that engulfed a monitor and a keyboard.

We will struggle with Ratchford at half back next year, as people have alluded to he shouldn’t be in the starting 13 now. I’d much rather we sign an out & out kicking half back or give Hayes* :wink: the opportunity.
