All I can say at the moment is that is sure miss Tim Simona. he was a great centre and fullback for us. Pity he self destructed with gambling.

Immaterial of who the players are I think a strategy of having 10 or so of your 30 player roster coming off contract each year are should be looked at as ideal - gives turnover and provided it is a right mix of backs and forwards shouldnt disrupt team structures.

I reckon get the spine settled, along with opportunistic buys forwards and backs in your main 20 squad and the other 10 depth players can do the best with what opportunity comes their way.
Unfortunately I think our spine has no certain starters and each position- fullback, five-eigth, halfback and hooker- filled with players who are not holding their hands up.

We are not helped by high value low output contracts to Reynolds, Packer and Mbye plus the sentimental hanging on to Marshall and Lawrence has had its time.

Who would want to be in Maguire’s shoes (except Todd Payten)

Good ol’ Toddy - whiteanting as usual.

Scumbag!

Not much ethics there is there. Maguire’s name being pushed forward by an unrepresentive 3rd party and Payten putting himself forward. BTW, who is Paytens agent?

Reckon establishing a reliable, consistent spine is most important. From those 4 players can build supporting team.

Based on my estimates, I’d probably re-think Benji and keep him around for another year, emotion aside, he is good value for money

I’d willingly keep Benji on next year- as a coaching assistant and club ambassador. Not on playing roster.

Interesting comments from the Warrington CEO this morning that they have zero interest in swapping Widdop for ‘that player’

Sounds like they are open to a swap, just not for Norman. Wonder how they’d feel about Josh?

I’d even consider swapping Brooks for a season or two.

Agree with the article but contracts are contracts- atleast until settled with agreement. I go often think though that a situation where coach departs club (through his own actions, not end of contract) the club should have the right to terminate some / all player contracts at an nominal value where the departing coach has recruited these players.

Raid ESL and get Sezer and Rhyse Martin back for next year- accurate goal kicking work horse back rower and a pretty good halfback capable of kicking goals too. Would give us coverage for a couple of years whilst the younguns develop a bit more. We could even try to do a swap deal with Sezer and Brooks and see if a season or two in ESL helps him develop his game.

Edit- Could also look at a former WT player that has matured over in ESL as a halfback- Jacob Miller.

None of those guys are better than what we already have

Except goal kicking (both) and positional kicking (Sezer). Yes, better than what we have.
