What we currently look like for 2023 : Sat Sep 10, 2022 12:23 pm  
As it stands what’s the team?

Only confirmed signings included no speculation or targets that aren’t yet signed!
No doubt the line up will change as we make confirmed signings but as of now I think it’s looks something like this
Jowitt
Kershaw
Lynne
Hall
Murphy
Kay
Lino
Bowden
Hood
Whitbread
Tanginoa
Ashurst
Crowther

Bowes
Windrow
Eseh
Battye

12 - Danny Kirmond . GONE
13 - Joe Westerman . GONE
14 - Jay Pitts
15 - Craig Kopczak . GONE
16 - James Batchelor . GONE
17 - Chris Green . GONE
18 - Adam Tangata . GONE
19 - Jordan Crowther
20 - Joe Arundel . GONE
21 - Max Jowitt
22 - George King . GONE
23 - Josh Wood . GONE
24 - Jack Croft

Shaw is currently out of contract and not with trinity for 2023.

Players with contract for 2023 are…

Jowitt
Taufua
Kershaw
Murphy
Lineham
Hall
Lyne
Gaskell
Lino
Bowden
Whitbread (did you forget him?)
Battye
Eseh
Ashurst
Tanginoa
Hood
Crowther
Kaye
Bowes
Windrow
O’Donnovan

You can choose your team from the above currently.

My team would be….

Jowitt
Murphy
Gaskell
Hall
Kershaw
Kaye
Lino
Whitbread
Hood
Bowden
Ashurst
Tanginoa
Crowther

Bowes
Eseh
Battye
Windrow

Of the out of contract trinity players I would re-sign only Shaw and Croft.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Think both Pitts and whitbread had options for 2023. A journalist a couple months ago reported Pitts option had been activated and Willie in the press interview a couple weeks ago implied so had whitbreads. Looking at numbers for similar sized squad from this year would imply around 10 new players coming before or during next season. Big shake up coming. Exciting times

Don’t believe that Pitts has been activated. I’ve certainly seen no confirmation of it.

As for Whitbread. Poching confirmed it in an interview. We have Tanginoa for right SR. Pitts would be okay back up but we need to be looking for the next Ashurst.

Personally I’d be looking at Jack Ashworth and I’m sure I read a rumour AJ Wallace could be trinity bound.

So Pitts has moved to coaching team? If he’s both he would be decent cover but we are clearly stronger with Tanginoa at second row.

Tom Briscoe is a very strange one for me. As a winger and is having Murphy, Taufua, Kershaw and Lineham o just can’t see where he would fit in. I’d much rather us look at Hardaker who can play centre/fullback which would kill 2 birds with 1 stone in positions we need depth and competition.

Wallace was at Leeds and like Ruan dropped down a league and has shown up well in league below. I’m all up for bringing in a few young championship players with potential.
