I would probably guess the same with Cust as the shock departure as some teams in the NRL seem to be struggling with halves but I think JWH the big transfer rather than Farrell


I'm a massive JWH fan and I'd love to sign him, but at 33 I don't see how he'd fit the description of being the type of MAJOR signing that's not been seen since we got Trent. I'd put Hoffman, Sam or Bateman retuning as bigger than what JWH would be.

I'd class someone major as Faz, DCE,.Tom Burgess or Radley (not saying it's one of them btw, just that level).

[quote="TheWarringtonWolve69"]Someone on redvee made a good point.

That would be a first.

? When did Saints sign one? Answers on a postcard please.


Probably Ben Barba but he then promptly dumped on them from a high altitude so hey ho !

Once again, we're in high-bar country.

I don't know if I'd even include Farrell, if I'm honest, given his age and lack of SL experience.

It's fun to ponder this stuff, though.

I've got a feeling JWH will be signing 1, 2nd signing will be the superstar signing

I will have a guess at Hanley being the reserve/1st team squad player, Mago the 1st team regular and Cust as the as the shock departure.
Hanley and Cust are just a speculative guess on my part. Haven't heard any rumours on either but Hanley doesn't seem to have a role at the club and Cust maybe being targeted by a club in the nrl or is he the guy to make way for Farrell?
As I say pure speculation on my part.

Hanley isn’t a 1st team squad player though. He has barely played for us. Did he even get any minutes year?

Think he had a squad number?

Hanley was in the 1st team squad last season.

Langi signed for Trinity.

That fills their overseas quota so doesn’t look like Mago will be heading there.

I don’t see how JWH is not a massive signing, one of the best props in the NRL, once probably regarded as the best, deffo at the level of Trent signing imo.
