This statement is most welcome and it seems like a sensible decision to me.
I am sure a few screwballs will berate the club but fundamentally, they can only sign players that are available and many players probably won’t be able until after the super league season concludes. Also they state that Smith and Tomkins was brought in later essentially proving why waiting for the best players is for the best.
The game in general isn’t out of the wood yet with regard to Covid 19. No real idea when crowds are going to be allowed. This should be part of the club’s thinking too.
My thoughts too as we do not know when crowds will be back and could be costly in the long term if spend too much. Personally I would leave the squad as it is now, and then pick Super League players up on the cheap nearer to the season. I am sure some can be on loan if surplus to requirements.
