I was there. It was quite good actually. He said we have room on the cap still for another signing if needed and basically said Russell is on peanuts.

With success, he will still receive large bonuses. If rumour is correct, £15k minimum per man, per final win. Don’t quote me though.

That is good news & a bit of a shock.

There is a podcast from Warrington Wolves about the Forum last night, it was a good night worth a listen.

Intetesting to hear that Huddersfield wanted Thewlis and Wrench in exchange for Wardle, when we said no they then asked for George Williams....... Deluded

Not suprising, there's a definite chipmunk vibe about him.

We're going to finish mid table at best, probably in the lower half. Most of us know it.

Those of us who aren't completely jaded and disenchanted will make an effort to lean into pre-season optimism in a few weeks time and this forum will have people saying we will compete for trophies, our squad is as good as any, but reality will hit by about week 2 or 3.

Couldn't agree any less to be honest, we'll be in the top 3.

I just can't call it. Mind you I would never have guessed how we'd get on last season.
Several experts believe that we have recruited well & that we can't possibly do so badly again.

You won't be alone...in a few weeks when everybody's finishing off their Christmas booze, half this forum will be predicting a record breaking winning season.

There will be promo articles in the WG from the new signings saying they've come here to win things and the set up here is as professional as anything they've seen in the NRL.

KF will be saying our ambition is to be the biggest sporting brand in the world.

We'll have stories from pre season camp where they ran up and down the Brecon Beacons while hunted by the SAS and they were so badass the SAS couldn't keep up with them.

Darryl Powell will do some earnest Q&A at a fans forum and everybody will conclude it was actually Mike Cooper who caused all the problems last year and now we're destined for greatness.

As the song goes "just like the last one...."

The Russell signing is disappointing, in that it shows little faith in our academy system providing cover on the wing.
I'd have rather seen the money spent on rewarding some of the younger lads in the squad, or on the fringes of it.

For me, this is yet another panic buy, and it's frustrating that were continuing down the same path of such desperate purchases.
