    Was just about to post it aswell

    Remember him at widnes but he just seemed to make up the numbers nothing else. Not sure hows hes done at london.

    So far for 2021 we have

    Thompson - second row
    Paasi - prop
    Matautia - second row/center
    Norman - second row

    Looks like woolf wants to re shape our forwards

    I wonder if the forwards on Friday were sulking because so many new forwards are coming in that could threaten their places or they will not get a new contract.

    Can't say I know anything about this guy.

    Seems a strange one to day the least and another back rower.

    Perhaps a replacement for knowles or Bentley, if either or both leave for the NRL after next season?

    This is what Danny Ward said upon signing him from Widnes last year.

    ---London coach Danny Ward said: “Dan is an exciting young prospect we are hoping we can bring the best out of at Broncos.

    “He is a big human and can move well for a prop. He is what we are about at London, he’s a good bloke, young, hungry and keen to work hard and get better.”


    Big and mobile works for me for a project forward. Perhaps he is the new LMS? Prop/running 13

    A would rather give someone young and hungry a go , rather than just roll over LMS/Amor out of convenience.

    Right now back row seems the last position we need to strengthen. Hope he is decent, don't know much about him.

    not sure we need another back rower/centre. He wont be on big money, but even so the likes of Batchelor and the other academy guys should probably be given more of a chance than an external signing.

    Not sure that the Matautia on is actually a done deal as yet? Last I read is that he was "considering" an offer.

    St Helens are interested in London Broncos backrower Dan Norman.

    The 23-year-old looks set to join the Super League champions in 2021 after being eyed up as a star of the future.

    Norman only joined the Broncos ahead of 2020 from Widnes Vikings, where he made 19 appearances last season.

    An England representative at youth level, Norman made his Super League debut in 2018 before Widnes were relegated.

    Cracking signing for Toulouse, that. He still has plenty to offer and you'd imagine he'd kill it at Championship level (unless Toulouse are preparing a cheeky bid to replace Toronto in SL ...?)

    The article says backrower but he was playing prop at Widnes and the quote from Danny Ward says prop too. So maybe this is the “project signing” at prop that people have been asking for. Or could it be that LMS isn’t staying on?

    Given we are looking like we have 7 out (Costello, Graham, Peyroux, Paulo, Ashworth, Taia and more than likely LMS) while bringing in up to 3 in (Passi, Thompson, Sione). Added to this Bachelor still has question marks over him and the only young backrowers we have are Wingfield and Foster. There is definitely room for a project player in the pack.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    Out of those seven above, five are above the age of 30 with the three of the four incomings (if all four mentioned do come in) below the age of 30. You can see there is a focus on bringing the average age of the squad down significantly. We've got a few big seasons of recruitment coming after a relatively quiet one at the end of last year.

    I really think he is still good enough for other SL sides. Good luck to him no complaints fro me on his performances, particularly post KC.

    Will be surprised if LMS goes.

    There is a podcast somewhere confirming he is going back south next year.

    This would explain another prop coming in then.

    Taia - Thompson
    Peyroux - Matautia
    Graham - Paasi
    LMS - Norman

    Ashworth, Paulo and Costello all replaced from within.

    in his early days , we wouldn't have been bothered about him leaving but I would have kept him and feel Woolf has not given him a fair crack of the whip

    I get the sense that some are in & some are out and not a lot of inclusiveness going on. Just a view.
