    In: Thompson, Paasi, Sione
    Out: Graham, Taia, Peyroux, Costello, Paolo, Ashworth.

    That's pretty good recruitment if you ask me. Graham and Taia the big losses but Thompson is an excellent replacement for Taia from what I've seen of him and Paasi is a huge bloke who was playing regularly in the NRL before lockdown. Sione is another regular in the NRL and will improve our side. Signing NRL players is always a risk but I think we've signed 3 blokes who are hungry, talented and want to come over here and none with a horrific injury record.

    The likes of Ashworth, Costello and Paolo offer very little to the squad and can easily be covered by some of the younger guys coming through.

    You won't see many other clubs recruiting as well as that for 2021 and given were already at the top it puts us in a good place for next season aswell.

    It's a good signing but in all our incoming players i am left wondering about what is going to happen with Bently ? two second rowers coming in and a prop.

    I should imagine the bench would be Paasi-Amor-LMS-Bentley or similar.

    This is a superb signing. A quality player still at 24 and he is a St Helens style second rower. Guys like Peyroux and Lee Gilmour have always fitted in well to our style of play.

    Given that the quality players seem to be going South at present this is a really nice surprise
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    As good as a singing he may be. Im still saying id rather have dom peryoux. The guy has fitted into out culture and he brings something to the team, this sounds like a straight swap for matautia and who knows how he will fit into the team

    With all these announcements I can sense a communication over 2021 Season tickets on the way!

    A young, fast, powerful and experienced NRL player, was youngest to play for the Aussie's and has captained the Knights. Comfortable in the pack, but also at centre. What's not to like in a player of that stature.

    Great coup for Saints, and I wish him well in his future Saints career.

    Agreed some good business and done early so hopefully then can plan to land here in time to prep the season fully.

    Although he's already had to clarify he's definitely still coming

    Widdop also likely to return to Oz, not that Wire fans will be particularly bothered

    I agree. I would actually just not commit to anything in terms of a start date or structure until the new year at least. If we have to wait until April/May and play through to the winter, postponing the World Cup, so be it. Asking fans to dig deep for a February start now would be 封封ing in the wind

    Should be no 'feeling homesick' either with his brother already over here.

    Should imagine he will be the fastest secondrower in Superleague........ Sam "rat boy" Tomkins couldn't catch him.

    Tweets from The Mole in July suggest he suffers quite a few head knocks and should consider another career.

    Ratboy very often doesn't catch the big guys. I'm really excited about these signings and think we have done very well. Must say I am surprised that we are laying out this kind of money in these times. Good news week.

    I've not seen distribution or providing a link any part of his particular skills to be honest, maybe he's simply never been asked to play that way up to now?

    Without sounding like a party pooper, are we not getting a bit too excited a little prematurely?

    This feels different from the Thompson announcement whereby every outlet in Aus were saying it was a done deal. As far as I知 aware we have League Express and one outlet in Aus saying we are 田losing in.

    let them slug it out for the 13 jersey?

    how long do both players have on their contract?

    We have 4 players there for 3 slots , one is going to miss out on a starting berth , then again there are enough games to rotate them I guess

    Probably folk like me. On the basis I love my spec and I wouldn't want to lose it. I'm just shy of the halfway line in the back row of the North Stand and would struggle to get a better spec and I can stand up without having anyone behind me moan!
    I don't like sitting but also couldn't get used to the behind the sticks view after standing on the Popside for decades on end. So I get the best of both worlds.
    If I was in the West Stand I agree I wouldn't renew right now.
