    Good interview with him on Saints TV well worth a watch. He seems like he’s full of confidence and talks a lot about wanting to raise some eyebrows and entertain/impress the fans. Refers to the fact he’s not the finished article either and will thrive in a full time environment.

    Really happy with the signing and excited to see how he goes for us.

    Cheers YG, Iíll check that out later. Personally, I think heíll work out well and will benefit from the clubs culture and conditioning.

    Quality bit of business from the club.

    He is absolutely rapid and he can certainly finish, so I am excited to see how he goes. We were crying out for some raw pace once Regan had departed, and this lad has it in droves.

    Liked the story line about how he got the No 2_5 shirt saying how he can play on both wings at 2 and 5.

    I thought that too. Itís a good signing getting him on loan for a year. I hope he does really well.

    Just had a listen/watch of his interview on the website, comes across really level headed but assured, and very hungry to succeed and knows he has parts of his game to develop! Excited to see him in a Saints shirt.

    Exactly that. Grace was a bit dodgy under the highball at first. The club will of scouted him well,if he couldn't catch a bomb then clubs would of shingled him out by now.

    As others have said,in a full time environment,with international players to help him out,he will go well. Certainly looking forward to seeing him put into space.

    Just spoke to a few of my Barrow mates, they were asking if Ritson could be loaned back to them for short spells. Told them thats between how Ritson settles in and gains confidence within the saints coaching culture. Hopefully he has the right temperment to let the club manage him on and off the field.

    Ritson talked about his cup game with the Huddersfield Giants and knows whats coming around the corner in terms of pressure, game speed etc.

    Speed wise seems to around the same pace as Senior (Giants).https://www.google.com/search?q=barr...id:euW2kPIbUuU

    He also said he’s had a while to get his head around the move or words to that affect so it sounds like it’s been agreed a while.

    Good luck to him. He should be good entertainment.

    I wonder what the rules are with the loan. Does this mean he gets to go back to Barrow when not picked? There must be some benefits to doing it this way rather than just sign him outright.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    I might be wrong,but I seem to recall something about a player being on a season long loan being unable to play for another team. I think someone mentioned it when Smith went on loan for the season to Leigh.

    Barrow's chairman has said this in their press release, so suggests they can take him for games if we don't select him

    “The deal gives a safety net for Tee in that if he doesn’t make the Saints squad then Barrow have the option of recalling him to play for the Raiders."

    I'm not sure if that's the case. He'd be on a season long loan and the only way for him to play for Barrow would be for them to terminate the season long loan deal. I take that as meaning Barrow will just have him back if it doesn't work out for him and he doesn't make it into the first team squad.

    Good on the club for doing a deal for a player that could prove to be a very good signing. He looks an exciting player from the footage and he has every chance of commanding a first choice wing spot come the start of next season. Especially after a full pre-season in Saints' environment. He clearly has talent and it's a big opportunity, so it's down to him to apply himself and the club to get the best out of him.

    If it doesn't work, it's only 1 year. At worst, it allows the club to use the development players and monitor the market for 2024. Sure Saints will be folowing Regan Grace's fortunes in RU, he could be looking for a new club then, who knows?

    This seems shrewd business.

    Just to say as well, think this signing shows the club's position on the speed and strike debate...

    “His pace and athleticism are there for everyone to see and he’s had an impressive year as he was crowned the top try scorer in the championship last season.''- Paul Wellens.

    Think the club have recognised it's an asset the squad was lacking in.

    So this is where the club may have been very clever (eclipsing the Knowles fiasco).

    4.6.1 The temporary transfer of a player by way of a loan shall be treated as a permanent transfer. Accordingly;

    (a) where a Super League Club is the loaning Club, the player shall cease to be considered to be a Player of that Club for the purpose of calculating its Club Salary Cap Qualifying Costs for the duration of the Loan.

    Example: Where a Player with starting Salary Cap Qualifying Costs of £40,000 goes on loan for 3 months, the Players Salary Cap Qualifying Costs shall be reduced by 3/12ths (I.e. £10,000 to £30,000.

    (b) where a Super League Club is the loanee Club, the Player shall be considered to be a Player of that loanee Club for the purpose of calculating its Club Salary Cap Qualifying Costs for the duration of the Loan.

    For the avoidance of doubt any agreement reached between the clubs from and to which a player is loaned as to who pays the players salary (or part thereof) has no relevance to the treatment of the Player in accordance of this clause.
    As far as Iím aware, this is the first instance of a player becoming full time through the process of a loan, and there certainly doesnít seem to be any accountancy for this situation. Itís not a huge deal, but the club getting Ritson for the value of his part term Barrow contract may be the difference between being able to keep an OOC player and not this year.

    Suspect Paasi and Batchelors extensions were only triggered after it was signed.

    Looking forward to seeing him playing for Saints but then again I felt the same way about Brimah Kebbie.

    Sent from a mate who works at the Barrow club, a Q + A with a bit more detail.
    https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...&sfnsn=scwspmo


    The intersting bit is that they don't want Ritson lingering in the Saints Reserve Squad but rather he plays championship games with Barrow. Does this mean he may be thrown into the deep end to avoid to and fro with the Barrow Club.
