Ashton will defo be a big miss, but we couldn’t stand in his way when offered Super League football.

Bennion is still with us, along with another 15 of last year’s squad, so I would think (as ever) the term “cautious optimism” for a similar finishing position as last term, would sum up the mood of the Lions’ faithful for the forthcoming campaign.

Top five for you mob? Toulouse, the Broncos, Fev, and Leythers, are my tips for the top four, but maybe not in that order. After that, ‘Fax and York shouldn’t be too far away, so it won’t be easy for Widnes to say the least, to reach the play-offs.

Bradford? With the upheaval(s) they’ve had, the huge turnover in the squad, and the flit to Dews, I reckon they’ll be nearer the bottom than the top, and along with the likes of Dews, Bats, and the promoted two, they could well be battling it out in the basement department.

Time will tell!
