Jack Hughes played a few games at Skolars at the end of the season having left Bedford RU. Pretty sure he is in the training video.

Ok he’s there to get a bit of conditioning. Fair enough. So it remains no further new signings. Bit disappointing and a bit surprising. Last time we went up we didn’t bring many in but we did bring some key ones Abdul, Smith, Morgan. This time we’ve clearly gone down a different route.

At least last time we weren’t faced with definite relegation.
Once Abdul got his move back North sorted out he more or less gave up on us.
Pity we couldn’t have persuaded Sammut to stay that extra year….

That's not true.

Derek Beaumont speaking of London Broncos :

Not sure if his words in the first five minutes (of 25) are supportive of you or the opposite.

His thoughts on the IMG gradings (yes, bigging up Leigh) are worth it should you see the whole stream through.

Leigh Leopards should be shocked IMG points for him wearing that hoodie.Do they give you a free set of gold hoop earrings when you buy it.

The IMG ratings do throw up a lot of issues. The one that Derek Beaumont mention with regards to catchment area.
Do any of our fans live in Merton? I personally do not know any. I know fans from all over, but within the Borough. No! This has cost us IMG points however as Derek says.
There is not much that we can do about it, although our nomadic history has not helped.
The way things have worked out, our promotion and poor rating has thrown a spanner into the works for what was supposed to be an easy transition to the 2025 Super League season.

Interesting story going around linking us to Manly hooker Karl Lawton. Must admit I've not seen a massive amount of him but seems to have a decent bit of NRL experience with 80 odd games. Not played much over the last few seasons however. I would assume Dean will be the 13 again next season and I believe Lawton has played some time in the backrow, so perhaps where his longer term future lies given Sam and Bill are already signed up.

Yes sounds interesting. Good to get some extra quality in and if he takes a knock we have three alternatives already signed who can take his place. Davis, Davies and Leyland Jnr.
Re: Recruitment and retention for 2024 : Tue Dec 05, 2023 9:59 am  
Never mind a fringe NRL reject hooker, we need quality in the halves and centres. Meadows and Leyland simply not good enough for SL and likewise Grant and Macani, jury out on Bassett. That said I have no idea who has been retained, maybe the Fijian 7 ?
