    Default Tee Ritson Signs

    12 month loan deal confirmed. We have the option to sign permanently if this year goes well.

    Smart signing by Saints, especially the loan aspect.

    Looks good business. It works, we sign him. It doesn’t, he was only on loan and goes back to Barrow.

    Common sense move, if it works out we can offer him a full time deal, if it doesnt its cost us nothing and he can go back to Barrow.

    Wasn't one I was in favour of, but on a year long loan deal is a really good piece of business. Hopefully he can prove my doubts wrong and kick on but if not we aren't committed into a deal.

    Yeah Saints have confirmed he will take the 25 jersey.

    Smart move I think. Won't break the bank, not over committing and can see how he does before weighing up our options for the year after. Gives us more depth in the backline and I think he'll play plenty games given Hopoate's run of injuries.

    I seem to remember the last winger signed from Barrow didn't do to badly.
    No brainer to bring Ritson in especially on these arrangements

    3,000 voices on here suddenly cried out in pain as the club announces a signing. Love it. Great move by the club, not overcommitting in case it doesn't work out, a try before you buy is a smart move. Incentivises him and doesn't lock in the expense on the cap.

    Made up with this, can't wait to see him flying down the wing with Bevan French looking like Dawn French behind him.

    Excellent. I wasn’t thrilled about going into the season with no replacement for Grace. Be interesting to see if he plays on the right wing and Tommy moves to the left like he does for England. Or whether Ritson slots in down the left. Just thinking Hurrell and Ritson might be vulnerable defensively, as much as they might be a great attacking prospect!
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Bit harsh on Ritson. He will have a lot more time and space to excel when we are at full strength. He'll score a fair amount of tries and do his fair share in defense. No one excelled last night but it's what you expect with so many changes and finishing with the academy team.

    Friendlies are by far the worst type of games to run the rule over new players,to much chopping and changing to make a sound judgement on anyone.
