We do seem to be going over the top for an inexperienced 21 year-old prop, released by Leeds. I hope he is as good as people are saying, but we still need to bring in a couple of experienced props too.
Has there been any news of the speculated signings of Aaron Brown, Brad Holroyd yet. I know Baker always puts a good shift in, but I agree with the general opinion that he could give so much more at 13 and would add a much needed attacking option from the pack.
This was in the Manchester Evening News a day or two ago;
Widnes Vikings are set to continue their recruitment for 2022 with the additions of Aaron Brown and Brad Holroyd.
Rugby League Live can reveal the Vikings are closing in on Sheffield ace Brown, who inflicted misery on the club two years ago by scoring a hat-trick against Widnes in the 1895 Cup Final defeat to the Eagles at Wembley.
Brown was named man of the match as Mark Aston’s men toppled Widnes, but he now looks set to make the move to the club as part of a growing recruitment drive by Simon Finnigan for 2022.
Brown, 29, will bring proven Championship experience having spent the past nine seasons in the second-tier.
Still not definite signings but encouraging to see that the MEN thinks these deals will come to fruition.
